Sprout | Sitting at 24w5d

Just a note to say that I never thought that sitting all day at a desk would be hard for a pregnant body, but honestly, it's not a good time.  I sit forward and at the edge of my chair and it just squishes everything that I didn't think about prior.

Lately, I've added a box under my desk to keep my feet up on and I try to bring my keyboard/mouse closer to me so that I can sort of sit in a leaning position.

I'm in my 24th week right now and I can imagine that it's only going to get worse.  When I talk about this with my other friends who have office jobs, their only solution is to get up and walk around.  It doesn't get better, you just have to force yourself to get up.

Who knew that sitting at a desk all day would be painful or not that impressive for a pregnant mama...?

On a good note, I went to the gym today and while it felt good to be there, I think my body was hating on me for not going over the last week and 1/2.  I'm hoping to increase that number a little to help with movement and things... He likes it, I know he does!

Oh, I remember the desk sitting. It was awful. In the end, I remember getting up about every 10 minutes and just wandering around. My hips couldn't handle sitting. I'm sure I was the most unproductive worker ever in that last month.

I totally remember feeling so uncomfortable just sitting for a long time. I sat on a yoga exercise ball some and that helped.

Thanks for the blog award by the way! Maybe some day I'll get around to responding to it on my blog :)

Seriously, the sitting gets annoying. :(

I worked a desk job up until the week before I delivered and it does get worse - but you will get up to walk plenty since you will have to pee every 20 min :P

Hello! I recommend a Snoogle for hip pain while sleeping. I got mine at about 27 weeks and I wish I would have bought it earlier. Before that sleeping was kind of a nightmare, but afterwards it really took care of a lot of the discomfort. I just delivered my baby last week and I've been using the pillow as back support while I nurse her, and I expect to keep using it for awhile. I highly recommend it! :)

that nightmare

Time is passing and permanent/next step decisions AREN'T being made about where our marriage is going.

Not because of anything other than HOPE....

Hope that these changes are real.  I can't deal with an act anymore.  I'm done with those fake attempts.  It just won't work for me.  I can't.

Hope that he really wants to change.  Because he's the only one that can make that decision for himself and not anyone else.

Hope that a new normal is really a possible option.  And not just a glimmer of something that will eventually be shattered and destroyed.

Hope that we could work through all of this and actually land on our feet.  But he has to want to do those things and my guidance won't help him.  He's got to want to do them on his own.  I can't help or ask or guide.  He has to do it.  Alone and with the help of God.

Hope that the narcissistic behaviors are being dealt with in positive ways and won't resurface.  With the help of prayer, guidance from h…

my little model...

There is a blog that I follow of a photographer that I saw at the Delaware County Fair. Her studio is near my home town and her pictures are very vibrant. I enjoy looking at different aspects of photography and I like seeing how didn’t people capture pictures and scenes… I guess you could say I’m envious.

While following her blog, I saw a post that stated Calling All Furry Friends and immediately responded. I have always wanted to have Toby get professional pictures done but I just fear that I wouldn’t pick the right person to capture his personality.

Anyway, as you can read in the link above, there were a handful of photographers at Megan Morgan’s studio and they were all going to be there just to take furry friends pictures.

Of the people that were there two have uploaded their pictures and Toby is in them!

First, Megan Morgan’s blog: Weekend Workshop

Then, Holly McCaig’s blog: Dogs Everywhere

They all captured some great pictures and I can’t wait to get my hands on them so that I …

Starting here..

I know that I haven't really updated this in a long while. I apologize. In the moments it was hard enough to survive, let alone write about it or find time to write about it.

With that said, I've told people over and over again that I'm going to write again, just not sure where to start.
So, today, I'm starting here.
My mom is terminal.  
Words that I cannot believe have to leave my mouth or my fingers.
She's been battling Ovarian Cancer for well over 10 years and this last year or 8 months+ have been just the worst.  Her body is being consumed by cancer and with every day that passes we are just another closer to losing her.
She's fought this whole time and continues to beat the odds that the doctors have placed before her. She's set goals and surpassed them and when the doctors say something, it's like she mentally tells herself that it's just NOT going to happen and she flies by those measurable items.
She's been a rock star and I have known …
