Throughout this pregnancy, I have kept my hormones in check. Everything has seemed easy breezy in that section. I did have the occasional "laugh till I cried" moments but that was just fun. lol
I love laughing till it hurt and my eyes were watery.

On to this week.
I woke up one morning feeling like i grew (belly wise) and it was nice. Well my pants seemed to have shrunk... even my stretchy pants. my tops are tight and I looked forward to buying new clothes, thinking it was simple. WRONG!!!

I went shopping yesterday and today and no luck!!
I was in the mall and was looking at all the clothes I use to fit, and somehow just looked way to impossible to ever fit again. I figured, lets start at some comfy shoes.. WRONG AGAIN!! I could barely bend over to put them on my feet and the weather is a bit to cold still for flip flops. I bought some really bad shoes that were slip ons and far from what I was acutally looking for. I was on the verge of tears. I kept walking around the mall, seeing young girls, cute outfits, couples, pregnant couples (and the lady looked cute preggo) all just seemed to make me mad.
Im single, pregnant, broke from being a single mommy to be and I feel like everyone looking at me saw a label across my forehead that said "watch out, hormonal mess!"
I was crying after 10 mins in the mall. I cried in the restroom, the coffee shop, and my biggest cry......... inside of VICTORIA SECRET. My fave place ever. Then crying turned to being mad. Where in the world did I ever end up single?!! I know Im pretty, smart, and I spoil my partner. Who wouldnt want that? It took every part of me not to go over to my babys dad and kick him in his private area and tell him "hes the dummiest guy out there!!" then I got hungry, but food just didnt taste right. So I cried again. I had it with my shopping day but my sister insisted we keep trying. So I gave it another shot and another fail.
I'll never know love the way it was between a man and lady, my love is all for my child. I'll have to work super hard to get back into pre-preggo weight, but I am determined to do so, and I will have to put my shopping sprees to Victoria Secrets to a stop till baby is setteled with everything he or she needs. I feel like this is just the start to the coming weeks. AHHHH Im so not looking forward to that.

I even cried a little writing this post. Oh gosh, help me!

Malls are depressing. Avoid them. It sucks looking at all the cute dresses that I would've looked great in about 7 months ago =// And definitely avoid Victoria's Secret.

My low point was crying over mac and cheese pasta that I spilled in the sink while draining it a couple of months ago. Other than a couple of incidents, I've been lucky avoiding being very weepy.

Don't stress about the day... You're doing great. Some days are just hard, regardless of what your situation is like. It's ok to be angry about things but don't put too much energy into that... you have so many great things going for you that deserve your attention.

hugs mama! just breathe!! you're doing so much and are beautiful because you're creating life!

You should cheat at getting back to your pre-preggo weight by breastfeeding!!! I highly recommend it, shoot you burn 500-800 calories a day just sitting on you butt and snuggling/nursing your little baby! I couldn't even do cardio my DD's 1st year of life because I was burning way more than I could take in.

Ill breath.
I'm home. In my comfy pjs and watching a comedy show.

Today goes down in my books as the worst crying day ever. I'm done looking for jeans. I think it's best I stick to cute comfy sweats and comfy tees.

Thank you! I needed to read that..

hugs mama! just breathe!! you're doing so much and are beautiful because you're creating life!

I guess cause I don't have another special half I never hear the words "beautiful" "pretty" or even "cute"
It would be nice if I got those comments from others instead of my family.
It's just been a very hard day. Stupid malls!

Aww Nasha you poor thing! Pregnancy can be so rough. Sometimes I look in the mirror and I feel just so big and ugly like a beached whale. I wish I looked sexy sometimes and wish I was one of those pregnant ladies that looked so awesome and even has sex appeal despite being pregnant. I don't have much money for clothes either, so I wear a lot of the same stuff over and over, and I have one pair of jeans that fit and one pair of comfy pants I can wear. Sucks because of all the times in our lives, NOW is when we need to be able to buy stuff to help ourselves feel pretty but now is also when money is most needed for other things...like babies.

I was going to say, if you need to hear how cute you are, why not post a picture of yourself on here? I think you are such a pretty woman, with beautiful skin, hair and smile and your baby bump looks so cute from the last photo.

Don't feel bad for having a meltdown day. I would say if your belly got bigger all of a sudden, you might have had a corresponding surge in hormones, and plus in the 3rd trimester your hormones are supposed to be surging anyway, getting baby ready for the outside world. If it weren't normal for pregnant women to break down and cry at inopportune times, there wouldn't be so many books and movies that poke fun about that. It's NORMAL! Try to remind yourself that.

You have so much going well for you. You also have a lot of stress too with school and a new job and loss of your BF. It's a loss, despite him being something not worth your time, it's still a loss you are coming to terms with, him not being there by your side as you enter this new phase of life. Allow yourself to grieve that loss. It's gonna be ok!

I took a morning walk, and had breakfast with my mom before going about my day.
I think the morning walkk released tension. and I also got me a cat. lol
I had too... Im a pet person and Ive never had a cat so I figured it would be nice to explore, plus she takes up my lap and all day has not left my side. I think could get use to this.
I usuallly express my feelings to pets more then I do people. and Im sure my dog was sick of seeing me so emotional.
As for hormones, I have managed to keep calm, I have just been extremely tired.
and my whole family gathered for a birthday party today for my youngest cousin who turned 5, and everyone kept telling me how my tummy has really showed this week.
so i know i really did grow.
just two more months till May... sheesh!

I am right there with you, sister. At this point, I'm just trying to keep perspective. Believe it or not, this is the easy part so try to enjoy the quiet. If it means staying in, putting on your pj's, ordering some food and watching a movie with friends, then do it! Soon enough these days will be behind you and you'll be wishing to have them back (once in a while). You're totally going to bounce right back and be hot to trot in no time at all. (at least this is what I keep telling myself!)
