Feeling great!

Today I am 22 weeks which means I have completed my 5th month of pregnancy(right? I cannot figure this out at all!). I cannot believe I am 22 weeks pregnant. Where did time go? Next month and by coincidence the day after my 30th birthday, I will enter the third trimester. Wow, that's mind blowing to me. I cannot believe it's going so fast. The years of waiting to get pregnant were so slow as if time stopped. Since getting pregnant it's as if time wants to catch up with us!

This morning whilst doing my mediation exercise I had one of those deep thinking moments. You know the ones when you really think and I mean really really think about what's happening in my body and I just get blown away. I am growing a little person inside my body. I got the same "my mind will explode" feeling I get when I think of the universe... It's just so incredible to think that inside of me there is a little person who is growing and developing who, God willing - please let it all be ok, will come out in October and be her own independent little person. All I can say to that is.. incredible, amazing, unbelievable and even supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!! Life is just incredible.

In other news, D's brother got married yesterday but as the wedding was in Belgium and I cannot fly D went and we stayed. He left Friday morning and will be back tonight at 8. He said it was a beautiful day and that he will fill me in on all the details tonight. I cannot wait! Yesterday was also my dad's 61st birthday and I so wished I was there to celebrate it. Last year we all gathered in their house for a BIG 60th celebrations. He sounded really happy as he was with friends and he said he didn't want anything but to hold his granddaughter in October... made me cry! Anyway, as I had another weekend alone I decided to have a "Let's not do anything Friday" (here our weekends are Fridays and Saturdays and the working week starts on Sundays). I took D to the airport than got back and went straight to bed. I read a whole book in one day. I have never done this before and it was fun.

Yesterday I had the new cleaning company coming to the house to clean from 9 till 11 am. Unlike our previous arrangement in this one the cleaning ladies are dropped off at our house and they are picked up at the end of their shift. They also have our key so they can let themselves in if we are not here or if we are sleeping. I was happy with the standard I saw yesterday and it was so much less hassle for me. I went to get lunch out and then I went swimming. I put on my bathing suit and went. I was glad to see it still fits and the top part still covers most of my bump. I don't mind flaunting my bump but I tend to burn and this seemed like the perfect option. I am happy to say my bump is still stretch marks free but my legs.. oh my thighs and ass have doubled in size! Oh well, I don't care. I went in the pool and loved it. I did a couple of laps and then I floated in the water. I loved how I felt so light in the water and movement came really easy. Isabella loved it too. I could feel her kick in there after I came out. I think she wanted more! I have also started doing some antenatal yoga. I bought a DVD as all the classes are during the day! It's very good but a bit too quick. I am sure after I get used to it and learn the moves I will feel the benefit.

Tonight D comes back at 8 pm and I am literally counting down the hours! I keep checking his flight to see if he will be on time even though I know it's a useless exercise as I am always early. I have a new airport routine. I always get a hot chocolate whilst I wait and sometimes I buy a muffin as well, then I get my book or trashy mag out and read until D's flight lands. It's the only way I don't stare at all the weirdos that circulate in the airport! I am glad this is his last scheduled trip for the year. I am so happy that from now on he will be home with us. I miss him so much when he is gone that when he is back I never leave his side. After 10 years together that is pretty sad but what can I do... I am in love!

    I just found this post on how to convert months of pregnancy into weeks! So I still have a week before entering the sixth month! It's so complicated!!

  2. I am so glad to hear that you are feeling great. And congratulations on the 22 week mark!! I so totally agree that it is so incredible to think of this little person growing inside of us. I am sorry that you were not able to make the wedding but am glad that your DH will be home soon!! Hope you have a great week = )
