What. A. Week.
How are you doing? Are you hanging in there? It’s been an up and down week for me. I’ve fluctuated between feeling optimistic and choosing positivity and feeling sad and heavy with all that is going on in the world right now. I shared on my Instagram Stories yesterday that the Wednesday night-Thursday AM were particularly emotional for me. It had finally sunk in that the last several weeks of my pregnancy are going to look quite different than what I hoped or expected, not to mention uncertainty about what it will be like when he is actually born. I’m choosing to not let fear and anxiety permeate that part of my life, but I do feel sad that it’s likely going to be a different experience. I feel like I processed my emotions surrounding it and now I’m on the other side of it, choosing to rally and find the good where I can. It’s my hope and prayer that Mike and I will look back on this time with fondness and good memories, instead of stress and uncertainty.
In great news, I had my 32-week check up yesterday and everything is looking just right for baby boy. He’s measuring right on track and is head down, so that made me very happy to hear! He’s been getting lots of hiccups lately, which are becoming more pronounced as he’s growing in there. His room is completely finished, except that we still need to hang curtains. I can’t wait to meet him and finally see what he looks like!
We’ve made a lot of progress on the rest of the house, as well! I’m hoping to start sharing some room “tours” here in the next couple weeks, so I’m excited for you guys to see what we’ve done.
Have you used this volume spray before? It’s fantastic. I used to use it regularly and then sort of forgot about it, but am back on the wagon. It adds so much volume without weighing my hair down, which is exactly what I want!
I realize many people aren’t shopping right now, but if you are, Nordstrom is having a 25% off site wide sale! Some of my most-worn and used higher-end items are included, in case you’re interested:
In case you missed it, I shared 20+ shows and movies to watch on Netflix in this post. Additionally, many of you added your recommendations in the comments, so be sure to browse those for more!
It’s supposed to be a beautiful day in Raleigh today, so I’m hoping to get outside and get some fresh air. Even just sitting outside for 10 minutes has helped to improve my mood in the down times throughout the day. If you can, I encourage you to spend a little time outside today!
I hope you have a restful and peaceful weekend!
