Week 18-Week 21: When every time you get a cold, you actually think you might die these days.

 Some how the last 5 weeks have gone by without a post. If this isn't any indication what 3rd child problems are I don't know what is. 

Here are my obligatory baby bump pics. 

Week 20 I thought I had coronavirus. Turns out I didn't. However, just because I work in healthcare doesn't mean I'm immune to all the nasty shit that comes through the door. 

Bedbugs. Scabies. Covid. MRSA. 

You name it. Stuff that you didn't even know that was out there. Truth be told i'm actually more afraid of Bedbugs than I am of Covid. 

I know i'm not alone in this. 

I haven't been sick in over a year. Really. And the one time I get sick, I can't take any cold medicine. None. So I basically sat for days with a head cold, praying it would let up while my husband traveled out of town, with two children that could careless about my condition. <rant over>

But really are the rants really ever over here?

In other news, I got my kids a bunk bed. 

This probably wasn't ideal, because only one kids sleeps in there, while the other one (who shall remain nameless), says she is actually scared of the top bunk and refuses to sleep in there. 

Our rationale was that we are moving in less than a year to a location with a house that probably won't accommodate 4 bedrooms, which we currently have. 

The bunk bed was a nightmare to put together. It came in 6 boxes from Overstock, but I will say the quality is quite amazing. I was really impressed. Also, my marriage is still intact. 

The good news is it's all together. How do I get both of my kids to stay in their bed overnight??! We've rocked the boat and finally had to take Eli out of the crib, which it's crazy to say he probably would have been content in there for a few more years, but at 3 years old, it was time. Now he gets out of bed at all hours of the night and we're paying for it. 

BUT we needed the crib for the baby and the kids needed to get used to sleeping in the same room. 

Any pointers would be amazing at this point. 

Please don't tell me i'm a baby and I need to get over it, because my heart literally can't take it right now. 

Preggo symptoms over the past few weeks! 

Cravings: CARBS are still the number one craving. Could be crackers or fruit, doesn't matter. I'm baking quite a bit these days so I'm one to eat my creations. ALSO, the Great British Baking Show has a new season, which i'm sure i'm late on, but that show always makes me motivated to try something new! Cottage cheese, V8, and sunchips are still consumed on the reg over here. 

Aversions: Still certain meats. If there is a dish with too much meat, I won't eat it. I've been cooking a lot of vegetarian options. 

Movement: I'm still working 3 days a week and still able to do quite a bit out and about. I'll ride this train until it has to slow down. I signed up for a Sugar skull 5k with some of my friends at the end of this month, at this point, I just want to finish. Sounds crazy since earlier this year I completed a half marathon in the coldest weather imaginable. 

Until next week my friends!!
