A noticeable difference...


Hello everyone! Today, I entered into my eight month of pregnancy according to Babycenter.com. I am now 34 weeks pregnant. I have 6 more weeks of carrying this little one and things are definitely happening in there.

I've Been Swimming!!!

I've been swimming.  I've been swimming (in my Beyonce' Drunk in Love voice).  Hi guys!  I hope all is well with and for you!  I've been having an enjoyable time learning how to swim!  S. and I have been taking lessons for about a month now and I am enjoying them.  Yesterday, we met a new instructor.  GUYS!!!! She is PHENOMENAL.  So, let me not take anything away from the other instructor.  She was great as well, but this woman has me back kicking and swimming.  I went 25 yards!  I was super excited about that!

I'm also excited about the strides I've been making in the class.  God is so good.  My back was kicking my butt yesterday.  The water in the pool made it wonderful. I was able to relax, swim, and float for about 45 minutes.  When it was time to get out of the water, gravity immediately returned and my back once again reminded me that we were in this together.  Wow!  I promise I won't be able to deal with back labor at all.  Please no, Lord!

I got home and was able to feed everyone an actual home cooked meal.  Oven Baked BBQ Chicken, Sweet Peas, and Corn on the Cob.  I am assuming everything was good because the kids went through that meal like they were famished!

Nothing fancy but it worked for us...
After dinner was done and bedtime routines established, the kids were put down and I sat downstairs reading on my phone for a while.  Pretty soon, it was time to go up myself and my back twinge reminded me that I am so looking forward to getting back into the water!

Talk to you all soon.

Vent: It's NOT Laziness, It's Anemia!!!

This weekend I had the unfortunate experience of being called lazy.  It may have been because Saturday I couldn't wake up.  I felt nauseous and weak and jittery.  I slept all day.  No exaggeration.  I slept from 2AM to 5PM.  I got up twice to use the bathroom and went right back to sleep.  My energy levels were nonexistent.  When I finally woke up, you would think I was refreshed.  No.  I was still drained.  I know I'm anemic.  I have been taking supplements, but I don't think they are helping.
