Half Way

today i am halfway
i guess maybe i should say that a week from today i am halfway but only because i always assume i'll be pregnant for 42 weeks
you know, because babies don't like schedules
but if you look on my chart at my midwife's office i'm 20 weeks
i have yet to actually experience my due date but i will not put it past this child considering the fact that it made me sicker and more tired than any of the other 3 pregnancies
i have currently been craving honeydew melon and cold canned salmon (eww. i know. but i can't help it)
i am 6lbs into my 25
i believe most of it has gone to my backside
chris doesn't mind in the least
i am mostly over the horrible HG i was experiencing the first 17 weeks
i can now manage any nausea with tea and ginger like a normal person
i am also extremely worried that i wont be able to get everything ready in the next 20 weeks
5 months
but if i'm being honest here i'm still catching up on laundry from 2 weeks ago
so its possible that if i don't get my big booty in gear, i wont be ready
so now i make lists
food i need to make and freeze mostly
i'm not expecting to get any post baby meals due to our "weird" diet so i'm trying to plan ahead and have plenty in the freezer
it took me 3 pregnancies to finally realize the importance of naps
i want all you first time moms to listen up for a second
i used the excuse "i have so much i could get done instead"
but seriously, napping is going to help you out so much in the end
more than having the windows washed just then
or the furniture polished
or the kitchen floor swept
those things can happen after nap
even if you only get 20 minutes you need to try every day
i can't stress this enough
this is the first pregnancy i took my mothers advice on this seriously
and i wish i had done it earlier
think of it as part of the important ingredients to building a healthy baby and keeping yourself healthy
