For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. Psalm 139: 13-16
Hello, third trimester! I am loving this stage of pregnancy. The baby is moving so much and getting soooo big. In fact, I'm measuring nearly three weeks ahead. Yowzers! And if I were to go into labor now, God forbid, the baby would have an excellent chance of survival. I always tend to breathe a sigh of relief when I reach about 25-26 weeks for that very reason. I've never had any reason to worry, but you just never know.
Oh wow! I feel like I'm all over the map. For the most part, I feel good. But every so often, mild feelings of depression will strike. I've never experienced this before. I've had my share of other hormonal issues during pregnancy.....especially as I've gotten older, but none that I would classify as depression. Thankfully, it's mild....I say mild because I can recognize that it's not real, and remind myself that it is a temporary feeling. Nonetheless, it's no fun at all when I'm feeling blue. For example, I was at Chuck E. Cheese recently for a birthday party. I was talking with a friend about life in general and began to get weepy! WHAT? Who gets weepy at Chuck E. Cheese? It's a happy place for crying out loud! There's no crying at Chuck E. Cheese!!! Will somebody please return the normal, much less emotional Candace please? Sheesh!
I notice it strikes more when I'm tired, so I really need to ensure a good night's rest, and make a point of laying down at some point during the day.
In other, less dramatic news, we're transitioning from a full summer into a full school year, so I've been busy working out schedules, gathering information for potential colleges with my daughter, making sure we have all our school material and supplies, and just getting organized in general. I want to have as much taken care of, and be well on our way into the school year before baby arrives in 14 short weeks! YAY!
Well, since I actually put on real clothes and brushed my hair, I thought I'd take advantage of the rare moment and get a 26 week pic. Trust me...you don't want to see my "everyday" look! ; )
It's been a while...I'd love to hear how your pregnancy is going! If you're not pregnant, I would love to know how you're doing too! :)
Good to hear from you! Sorry you're dealing with some mild depression. I've had issues (pregnant or not) for years (spent MANY years on meds). The thing I found during my last pregnancy that helped immensely was Vit D. I take 10,000 IU daily. Of course, I'm in MN where we don't get much sun for a large chunk of the year... you may be fine with 1/2 that. ;)ReplyDelete
Everyone here has adjusted well to baby. Now I just need to figure out a new school plan. I'll be more involved this year as we've made some curriculum changes so some of the work that was mostly independent in the past will now be more teacher directed.
Praying for you.
I have seven children.. five I birthed :) Each pregnancy I found my hormones and emotions really became more of an issue with each additional child. My postpartum depression was worse as well. Get lots of rest. Keep talking about it with loved ones... and after the babe is born... do not reject the idea of temporary medical intervention (which I unfortunately did with the first three). I found I only needed it for less than six months and I was back to my happy pollyanna self! Blessings to you!ReplyDelete
You look wayy too cute...and way too young. Congrats again. I don't think weepiness is abnormal, especially as we age. (Even though you don't LOOK it, you are aging :) ) But I also think it is wise to stay on top of any feelings of sadness that linger (which doesn't seem to be the case for you now) and to be open about it.ReplyDelete
No more babies for me...but I cannot wait to hold the little grandbaby on his/her way!
Hugs from Colorado!
Okay...you'll have to share your beauty secrets with the rest of us, okay?ReplyDelete
Hehe, I agree Brandy, you look WAY too cute for a mommma of nine... ten, is it? I have just three little ones, and hoping for many more blessings down the road. God Bless you, you're a beautiful woman!ReplyDelete
