I did it. I successfully recorded, edited, and uploaded a video EVERY DAY IN AUGUST. Yay! Today seems bittersweet. As much as I’m excited to go about my life again normally with a video a few times a week without any pressure, I am sad to not see everyone every day . What is that saying? Absence makes the heart grow fonder?Tweet
No matter how wonderful some things are, there can be some things that aren’t so wonderful about them too. Pregnancy is one of those things. For VEDA Day 30 I am doing a topic suggested by a Facebook friend. Things that I will miss about being pregnant, and things that I won’t. I will say that I had to set a limit on how many things I would list both good and bad, because the video would have been hours long if I didn’t. So here are the five things good, and five things bad about my pregnancy.Tweet
Blankets. According to everyone and their moms, you can never have too many of them when you are registering for your baby shower, or out shopping. False. I definitely think you can have too many! Heck, I’ve HAD too many. When my son was born we were so blessed to receive gifts from friends and family, most of the gifts though…were blankets. Same with my daughter 7 years ago, lots of blankets. Now I don’t know where this whole never having too many blankets theory came from, or when, but who in their right mind needs 20 blankets for one kid? That’s how many I ended up with from my daughter’s showers.
In my opinion you only need a few REALLY GOOD blankets. There are all types to choose from and that’s what makes all the difference in how many blankets you actually need. I’m a HUGE fan of multi purposing the things that I have, so blankets of course would be no different. One of the types of blankets that I think every parent should have at least one of is a good swaddle blanket. NO I’m not saying a RECEIVING blanket, because honestly I see them as oversized burp rags, I’m talking about a good all-purpose swaddle blanket.Tweet
It is one of the strangest feeling to
want NEED to clean and organize, but to have no motivation to do it. At first my “nesting” instinct was wonderful. Not only did it push me to want to get things done, but it also made me feel like I was truly getting our lives, house, and selves ready for baby. Now that we have a set date for her arrival and there is only two months left to go I have absolutely NO motivation to do anything…but my nesting instinct is still there.
