Pregnancy Brain

Yesterday I stuck 25 stamps on the wrong corner of christmas cards..
Dave made fun of me and called me a tool or something like that and I cried. Then I peeled off 25 stamps and moved them to the right corner of said cards. Then I gave him the silent treatment for being mean to me when I am exausted and pregnant and had just spent over an hour addressing and stamping cards for BOTH OF US. He should have done it then. Anyways, he said sorry. I have no patience but I still love him. I am soooo tiered these days.

Also-I am nesting like mad. I have sorted through every single baby item we have and decided which to keep, which to sell ( the REALLY boy items) and then organized, crated and labeled them accordingly. Newborn-5 months clothes, 6-12 months clothes, 12 month plus clothes, toys, books, diapers, blankets and other baby gear. I have a very neat stack of bins in my bedroom. I will be washing, folding and putting away the appropriate stuff over the comming weeks and putting the 6 months + stuff back into the basement for now until we are needing to start dipping into them. I have loads of stuff to post online to sell and earn money for my diapering needs. I have a brand new tiny santa suit with the tag still on that my mom had bought for Evan. I have tons of blue super ultra soft baby clothes that also still have the tag on. I have packages of blue onesies that have never been open. I will sell them for 20-30% off, I hope someone will snap them up. It’s so sad and yet kinda freeing to go through all this. All of Evan’s things that have been sitting in my basement for 2 years.

β€œLife is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.” β€” Albert Einstein. When it feels like your world has been shattered, and you have reached rock bottom, you must make a choice: Stay where you are and fade away, or keep moving forward. Thankfully I chose to move forward and was blessed with the two most wonderful children after the death of my first in early labor. Things are looking up.

  1. {{HUGS}} on the pregnancy brain. Dave gets mad at me when I say that. He says it’s an excuse and I tried to explain to him this baby is sucking all of my energy and brain power!!!
    Go you on the nesting!! I am wondering what I will be like. I am scared to think about it, scared to think about getting things ready. I mean, everything is ready and it was ready for Moira. If this baby is a girl, I will have to go through everything, wash it again because it will have been sitting in the nursery for over a year. I am just so worried about getting everything ready again. Sigh….

    • As you already know from my previous Dave thinks preggo brain is an excuse as well. Boo men!
      Nesting is VERY scary and yet so damn much fun. For a little while it’s so much fun to put aside my deadbabymama reality and pretend I am innoncent and excited and cooo over tiny ruffled blouses.
      I am terrified though to do up the whole nursery and truthfull, I kinda don’t want to. Dave does. It’s alot easier to put away baby clothes then it is to unpaint a pink room and take down a crib. We will see.

      • I know what you mean about it being fun! I had so much fun getting ready for Moira. We have left the nursery all together since she died. We knew we wanted to get pregnant as soon as we could. We will change things, etc. if we find out we are having a boy, otherwise we’ll keep things the same, just wash everything.
        My Dave has resigned to the fact that yes, pregnancy brain is for real, and even though he hates the excuse, he sees me displaying it all of the time!! πŸ™‚

  2. I found it bittersweet but healing to use some of Abby’s things with Charlotte.
    I’m excited for you, nesting and preparing for this sweet little girl πŸ™‚

  3. hugs!! silly husband should know better.
    just a little longer …
