Weeks 23/24/25/26: Weird dreams about sleep, a glucose test, and a sprinkle of braxton hicks contractions!

So being a mom of a toddler is hard. I mean the other night I was so tired. I had a dream I had a newborn that I didn't feed for 10 hours at night because I was sleeping so hard. I literally woke up for 30 seconds looking for a new baby only to realize he was still safe in my belly and alas I wasn't a horrible mother.

Debunking this dream:

I can't remember the last time I slept 10 hours straight in the last two years. LOL.

Week 23: 

I completely forgot a bump picture. This preggo brain is real. #momfail

Week 24: 

This disney picture was just about as close as I got. #yetanothermomfail

Week 25: 

Besides this baby dancing on my bladder. Allie has been uncharacteristically sweeter about the baby. She very sweetly pats my belly and says baby.  She's just as sweet as the ice-cream cupcake she just shoved into her mouth. 

She also proudly wears this shirt around the house and refuses to take it off. 

She proudly celebrated her Dada's 31st birthday! 

Week 26: 

So I know I've really skimped on these past fews weeks, but i'll save you the details. There's been a really uneventful time in my pregnancy, up until this past week. I don't know what happened, but I'm so sensitive to the glucose drink. It tears my stomach up something fierce. After the test, I was able to eat normal but crashed super hard the rest of the day. 

I did pass my test. THANK GOODNESS, because there is no way in hell I was going to do the 3 hour test if I didn't. 

Literally days after the glucose drink, it took me a long time to get an appetite back. I had to leave in the middle of one of my shifts due to Braxton hicks contractions. It was unpleasant, but eventually stopped after laying in bed for a few hours and chugging an enormous amount of water. Never mind, that my load was completely and totally full this day and didn't even think about drinking water. 

This is frowned upon and not recommended. 

During this week, I have felt so tired, like felt a million years preggo. It's like Oh hey, this is nearing the end of that wonderful energy spurt you had in your second trimester. Good luck staying awake in the third trimester. Thanks preggo body. 

My body is slowly starting to get tired doing the smallest things. I'm finding that eating a big meal is way out. It's either eating small frequent meals or drink something. I can't do both at once anymore. 

Aversions: Not really anything, which is very strange for me. 

Cravings: avocado toast, cuties (made a big come back), watermelon, pretty much all the veggies. Nothing super strange like raw garlic a couple weeks back. 

Sleep: I feel like i'm never rested and it doesn't help that I chase a two year old everywhere.

I really do feel like the last 4 weeks went by too fast. This pregnancy I've felt very slow. I've also felt like I can't focus for long periods of time. 

Is it possible that Pregnancy makes you dumber?! Has anyone actually researched this?!

Any who. Just when I thought my life would slow down, I realize that my baby will be TWO years old JUNE 5. I cannot even tell you how sad this makes me. Time definitely speeds up into overdrive when you're a parent. 

How are these even the same child?!

Please excuse me while these pregnancy hormones and mama emotions whisk me away. 

Until till next time!!
