24 weeks, Spring fun, & an anniversary

Tuesday, April 15, 2014

Phew. We just finished up Spring Break here and I am beat.

It could have something to do with me being 24 weeks pregnant, but having the kids home for 10 days really took it out of me. 9 more weeks until Summer break and I'm already exhausted just thinking about that. I'm feeling huge, or at least bigger than I did at this point in my last 2 pregnancies. I'm also feeling the effects of being almost 30 and pregnant, rather than 20 & 24 while pregnant with my previous babies. I'm really tired, get winded easily, and I'm already getting really uncomfortable.
(this was actually last week)

We had a really great week of weather here, so on my husband's day off we decided to take the kids to the park downtown. The kids wanted to feed the ducks, and it wasn't until we had gone through a half a loaf of old wheat bread that we noticed the signs that read Please do not feed the water foul. Oops. Well, now we know. But we did made fast friends with some ducks, a lot of overly-aggressive geese, and even a few seagulls. The kids loved it.

On Friday my husband and I celebrated our 8 year wedding anniversary. That makes it 11 years together, which is kind of crazy for me to think about sometimes. It definitely makes me feel a little old!

Did you do anything fun for Spring Break?

  1. Age really does make a HUGE difference in pregnancy doesn't it? I was 19 when I had my first and didn't have my second and third until 31 and 33. I could tell a massive difference in my body.

    Love all the photos. Feeding the ducks is one of my kids favorite things to do. Glad you all got to get out and enjoy the weather.

    Oh and Happy Anniversary! This year made Hubby and I 15 years. It's still unreal to me.

  2. I swear it's something about the 3rd baby. You get bigger faster, more worn out faster, more achey all over faster.
    Either way though, you look super cute!

  3. Thank you! Yes, baby #3 is killing me. 24 weeks & I already feel like I'm huge & I'm so uncomfortable. I don't want to think about the next 16 weeks & the fact that it's going to get hot! Ugh.

  4. YES! I was 20 & 24 with my previous 2 & it was pretty much a cake walk. Now I'm almost 30 and I'm exhausted at only 24 weeks...and this is supposed to be the "easy" part. No morning sickness & you're still far away from your due date. My pregnancy app says my energy should be high right now....riiiiiiight. I keep falling asleep before dinnertime.

  5. Wow I have only had one now but I'll be almost 32 by the time I have another. I bet I'm going to be super duper tired! congrats mama!


I love hearing what you have to say! Comments make me happy.
