This is my first Taking Stock for 2017 – like I always say, I love doing these posts because they sort of put a time stamp on my life. I can always look back and see what was happening and how I was feeling at a certain point in my life. This version of taking stock will be quite pregnancy heavy, because it is one of the biggest things that is happening in my life right now and it is dominating every aspect of my life as I get closer to my due date.
Cooking nothing at the moment, I have no energy to make food. So I order most of my meals from MyChef or I try to make quick to prepare meals
Drinking a lot of water – it’s been so hot lately
Reading a lot of pregnancy related articles. I am finally at that stage where I want as much info as I can get
Looking like a whale, seriously. My growing stomach is throwing my shape way off
Playing Solange’s – A seat at the table; now that the hype has died down a bit, I am listening to the album
Wishing that Baby B was already here – I am ready!
Enjoying my pregnancy, people are being so nice to me, even strangers are super super nice; it’s amazing
Waiting anxiously for graduation! I finally will have my MSc; it’s crazy how my life has changed since I started this degree
Liking the many spa days that I have been spoilt to recently – it’s awesome to be pampered
Wondering which protective hairstyle to do for the first few weeks of my maternity leave. I am thinking of crochet braids or plaiting my hair and just rocking a wig when I go out of the house
Loving all the kindness that has been displayed to me by people (strangers and those that I know)
Hoping for the weekend to get here – it’s Thursday afternoon currently… just one more day!
Needing a foot massage each day
Smelling all the things that don’t smell nice to me anymore. My sense of smell is back to being heightened at this stage of my pregnancy and some smells repulse me. I don’t even wear perfume anymore because the smell suffocates me.
Feeling anxious, excited, happy, scared all at the same damn time! Counting the weeks till Baby B is here
Wearing less and less makeup *shock horror*; it’s been so hot and I’ve been so lazy in the mornings that I just can’t be bothered with makeup. I miss it very much though.
Noticing that my walk has turned into a waddle 🙂 – I don’t walk like I used to anymore and it just came out of nowhere!
Thinking about taking a solo holiday/weekend away, I’m afraid that I’ve left it too late
Bookmarking a lot of labour and delivery videos – lol! And then Gabby from HeyGabster told me about a show called One Born Every Minute; I’ve been watching a lot of those as well
