After the crazy weekend I have had I felt this reminder was necessary

For the sake of your sanity years from now enjoy these next few weeks. I wish someone would have told me to take some time for myself before my oldest was born.

Ovee the weekend I ran a bath 3 different times and was never even able to get in due to someone needing something or kust wanting me in general. The end result was finally getting in the tub after midnight each night. I had to wait to watch my shows until everyone was in bed. I changed clothes twice before church yesterday because someone bumped into me wjile I had a drink in my hand. My hair is always in a pony tail because if I want to dry/straighten it I would have to get up at the crack of dawn to fix it since I have to make sure all of the kids are ready to go in the morning.

This may all sound like little things but believe me, after a while you feel more like a zombie than a person. I swear, some of the zombies on The Walking Dead look better than I do when I walk out the door in thw mornings!

Lady.....I TOTALLY hear ya I was actually thinking of this the other day when I was entering the bathroom to pee and my two children pushed the door open as I was closing it and followed me in. I can't even have ONE minute to myself to PEE. So I told my husband after baby #3 is born that I am going to schedule one saturday a month and he is in charge all day while I go and do ME TIME stuff, like a pedicure, window shopping, coffee drinking, hanging out with friends etc. I actually got a "yeah...you deserve that" response. (I actually deserve it EVERY Saturday) but since I will be working every Saturday except for the one a month I schedule off for myself, then one will have to do........

Thanks for the reminder! I really needed it. I relate this feeling to how I felt waiting for my upcoming wedding. I knew I needed to cherish the time I still had in MY childhood room doing things my way, and that soon I would be living in a new home with DH and miss those days. That is exactly how I feel now! I know I need to have fun and do things my way right now because in 7 weeks Zoey will dethrone me as Queen of the castle. But I just want it to be over! I can't help but get that really impatient feeling. I want my body back!

I do this once a month with my three closest girlfriends, which we call "Girls Night!" We go out for dinner (usually a LONG *** dinner lol lasting 2-3 hours) and sometimes do a movie afterwards. It's only once a month, but I have to tell you those few hours every month away from hubby and baby are the BEST hours in every month!

(And no - I don't feel guilty saying that at all!)

Since we moved I don't have any friends to go eat with. I feel strange going to a resturant alone. Guess I could order some decent food to go then sit in the back of the van and watch a movie on the dvd player.

Yep. I hear ya.

I think this is why I had PPD so bad with my first. I just had NO IDEA how much baby was going to change my life. It really is a lesson in selflessness in ways you'd never imagine!

It's all TOTALLY worth it, though, but man, there are times I just want to be able to sit and just... be. lol To clean the house and have it stay clean all day and not get destroyed 30 mins later!

I love my girls, though. Sooo worth it. It is an adjustment though! And as much as I hate being pregnant, ya know, baby boy can stay put as long as he likes, lol. I remember those newborn days all too well and IME, they are pretty rough!

Hee…my BFF is due with her first shortly, and she is SO ready for this baby to come out. I keep telling her, TRUST ME, you want that baby to stay in as long as possible, but I think she really thinks she has this baby thing knocked…Granted, she probably is better prepared than I was (me with no baby experience whatsoever, and her with a child development major and lots of daycare experience) – but how do you explain to someone the changes that are about to occur in their life as a FTP? I seriously think she thinks I’m just crazy…

The way I'm feeling is, I'm ready for my back to stop hurting so bad and for her feet to get the H*LL out of my ribs...but besides that...she can stay in. I is scared.
