Hey there friends. Well, we are in the bulk of January aren’t we? The holidays have come and gone, and will come again. Everyone is hoping their 2018 is better than 2017, I am one of them. I am ready for it to be February already, I am not feeling so good. I have this unending sense of anxiety over the fact I do not feel ready for this baby to be here. Physically yes, mentally yes, as far as being on top of having everything I need for my new little NO. Even though most people I run into think that because I already have a child that I apparently would keep everything. UM no and why is that weird? I am not a baby stuff hoarder. I didn’t keep what we didn’t still need. Of the things I still needed I kept was the crib, the highchair, and the pack n play. That was it. Why would I keep bottles? Why would I keep receiving blankets? Why would I keep 800 million onesies? I wouldn’t, there is no room and I knew people in my life that needed it more than me. Plus, at the time almost 5 yrs ago, we were not sure we would have another child. I do not have a hospital bag packed yet.(I have a whole post on that coming soon.) With my first born I had one packed already. Mainly because he tried to come at 31 weeks. I have made it past that, which I guess is my own laziness? And although I do intend on breast feeding my little nugget, I still need bottles as I had issues with production last time and we supplemented with formula. And I also pumped, so, if I needed a nap, a shower, a bit of me time, hubby could feed the baby with a bottle and not wake me up, interrupt my shower, and or call me frantic about how to feed the nugget. And of course after explaining it to many people why we didn’t keep things it is always met with “OH, that makes sense. I get it. It is understandable.” Is it that weird?
Yes, I am actually mentally prepared. But, the other stuff which may seem a bit trivial, I am not. Can you blame me? It has been keeping me up at night for Maker knows what reason? (sorry been playing Dragon Age again) I think this is my pregnancy hormones at play a lot. Some women have nightmares about their kids having extra fingers and toes, me? I am having dreams about not having a car seat(silly I know) and a receiving blanket. So, why am I writing this crap? Well, because I want other mom’s to be know they are not in anyway alone. Whether it is your first or second or third child, I get you, I feel you. And every darn time I go to buy the car seat I forget after getting to Target to buy the damned thing. I even say, OK, I am buying this car seat today. And leave Target with things my little man is out of, chocolate chips, and the normal Target roughage. Forgetting the thing I was there in the first place to get. I am a bit scatter brained, I know I still have a bit of time to get everything we need right now. I am not concerned about the Nursery, since my firstborn was with us until 3 months in his Pack N play Bassinet, he didn’t like anything else. And so I am not worried about that whole thing. It is the other stuff, which I know really isn’t an issue. And I will be sharing a post on things you actually need at the time vs things that can actually wait. Right now you are probably thinking “ugh enough already talk about the comfy pants and stuff”.
OK, well, that is now out of the way. I should really talk about this outfit huh? I am now in the last final stretch of pregnancy. And while looking cute is the game this whole pregnancy, I need comfort sometimes more. When I found these pants at Motherhood maternity, along with the comfiest maternity underwear ever. WHAT?! No really, I am serious. This one freaking pair of undies I got on a whim was the most comfortable. And they are not much to look at, but at this late in the game, I am not really giving a royal damn how much lace it has or doesn’t have. I am not trying to be a Victoria’s Secret Model here, I am trying to make it to 39 to 40 weeks.
These Motherhood Maternity pants are so soft and comfy, under the belly fit. I kind of wished I got them a size up. Even thought they do fit perfectly, sometimes I need some more baggier pants. Just for those “kinds of days” days. And I have on my Target Slide on sneakers with bow details as well as my non maternity Target tee which I sized up. Some ALDO sunnies, and new Tarte lipstick. I swear I woke up like this. Yeah right it took a lot of NYX concealer and some Too Faced Born this way makeup to get like this, OK the hair I haven’t touched and threw it up into whatever that is. I am sure I will get my act together, and will be out of this funk soon. I know I am not the only one who is expecting to be overwhelmed like this. I certainly wont be the last. What was the thing you constantly worried about when about to pop?
