25 Week Baby Bump

Almost in my third trimester of the pregnancy!  I am soo excited to see the end.  Unfortunately I am not a blissfully pregnant Mama.  My body and mind goes through a lot of torment while pregnant.  Two days ago I was woken in the middle of the early hours to spend most of the night with intense cramping and verge of vomiting.  The heat did me right in.  I could not bring myself to eat even though my body is so great at telling me when my blood sugar is low.  I just couldn't do it.


Being in my third pregnancy I have come to the conclusion that my mind is completely altered while under the babe influence.  My normal day to day eating habits sans bebe are obsessively nutritional.  Fried foods are out.  See you later chips.  Processed foods are equally as yucky and avoided.  Animals?  Are you kidding?  Dairy...no way.  But this pregnancy has been full of those evenings when I ask the Papa for a junk food run.  He obliges.  I am heavily influenced by the advertising - think Kraft Dinner and Skittles. (And who said the Bullet Model was disproven?)  Suddenly though all I want to nosh on is frozen fruit, fresh fruit, salads, VEGAN!  I am submitting.


Of getting things ready for Babe!  Here is a little list:

*  Baby Shower (French Bistro theme)
*  Dolls for each girl and headbands
*  Daybed for me to sleep on with the New Babe and to be close to the other Babes
*  Theme solidification for the room
*  Organization of Clothes
*  Car Seat purchase
*  Nursing Bras (we'll just wait)


My anxiety and fears about being a mom for the third time didn't seep into my everyday life with the girls.  I feel really protective of my belly lately and have been getting really annoyed with people's comments and stupidity.  It lingers the majority of the day and I find little things build and anger me.  I am a stay at home mama with a double wide stroller who is pregnant and trying to maintain sanity.  GET OUT OF MY WAY!  Oh yeah!  And I have tattoos which are not an indicator of bad parenting.

In my Sketchbook 2013.  Have you guys heard about this?  Well, I sent away to be part of a traveling and permanent Art Project.  It is part of my 29 before 30 list.  I have decided to sketch portraits of my fave bloggers.  I started with Katie:  cute little red head homeschooling mama and crafter at Skunkboy Creatures.  The images are about 4 inches long that I am drawing.  Hope you like.
