Moving and 8 Months Pregnant - Hormones are getting the best of me
Let me just say that I HATE moving. I'm thankful I was able to purchase a new home for my growing family, but trying to pack and move this pregnant is an exercise in futility. I can't bend over, I can't squat, I can't lift. I feel completely useless and its so frustrating. I ended up hiring a moving company because I don't have a lot of help locally other then my brother who I've paid to help me get the new house painted(still not completed yet) and cleaned, help me move stuff and move my landscaping. My husband is so busy with work that he barely has time to help and when he does it feels like he moves at a turtles pace. We have to be out and turn over the keys to our old house in 48 hours and not everything is out let alone the cleaning that we need to do.
I took extra time off of work to try and get some things done and as soon as I get going I start getting a series of contractions. So, I have to stop and test and try to start again. It's crazy. I hate feeling useless and behind. Not to mention with this one I'm bigger now than I was full term with my first.
I feel like a giant hippo who can't get anything done. And one who recently lost her ankles and got a wonderful pair of cankles. Yuck! Don't get me wrong my husband tries to be supportive and tell me I still have ankles and I'm not ginormous, I'm just pregnant. But my hormones and all the stress of everything has gotten the better of me. Sigh.
I think I'll feel better when we are out of the old place and can just focus on the new place setting up the new LO nursery. At least I've been blessed in that our toddler has really taken to the new house well and enjoys his new room.
The silver lining, it will all be done soon. Deep Cleasing Breathes. Right? Then all the work at the new house can begin... Haha just as long as we get the nursery done ill be ok.
