Excuse me, is this thing on?

Y’all, the past 9(?) weeks have really done a number on me and this blogging thing. I mean, that is, in case you haven’t noticed the relative lack of posting that’s been going on in here.

I feel like I came back from BlogHer and peed on a stick, and then my blogging world went to shit.

Life is so busy lately. So, so busy. And complicated. And the busy and complicated is hard.

When I have things to say, there’s no time to say them.

When I have time to say things, I have no motivation to sit down, open the dashboard, and say them. If I can even say them at all.

I have so much swimming in my head right now, both good and bad. Things that are important and things that are basically inane ramblings.

I want to document this pregnancy and do a better job of leaving a record for this baby than I’ve done so far. Because so far I’ve kind of just been wallowing in my grief and misery. And I’m not all miserable, all the time so I really should take a minute or two to say “Hey, Second Human Child, when you don’t make me want to vom my head off, I’m sort of excited about you.” Or something like that.

I have 27 weeks left of this pregnancy to document and a whole host of things to consider in those 27 weeks. And a ton of things that absolutely must get done starting with the largest purge in the history of this household to even make room for this kid in the first place.

So the question is, how do I start? How do I get back where I was in light of this new, unexpected journey I’m on?

I need some help, y’all.

#1. Welcome back

#2. I miss you

#3. You're not gonna get back to where you were before. You're a mom and you're pregnant. That means you have like 50% brain function because you have to deduct 25% per child. I have lots of advice for when you pop that second human out. But none beforehand because my second pregnancy was rough emotionally. I didn't know if I was coming or going, ya know? You'll get there though. My second didn't even get a nursery. I set up a changing table, washed clothes and put the car seat in and we were golden. Turns out babies don't need a clean house to be born :)

I'm glad to hear you are really starting to get a little excited about pregnancy #2. I only have one kiddo, so I don't necessarily have any good advice for prepping for the second one. But like one of the other commenters said, this post seems like a good start. Just get done w/ what you can and don't feel guilty about leaving some of it for later!

I have the same problem with the second pregnancy - it's not that I wasn't excited about him, I just wasn't that excited about going through a pregnancy. And then, with a toddler in tow, I didn't get to take belly pics, or record anything, I just had to survive until bedtime when I could drop in to my bed like a ton of bricks. Making a human is hard work, especially while caring for another one! Poor Owen doesn't even have month pictures, because I keep forgetting.

Oh, maybe I should go take his 5 month photos...

Give yourself a break - do what you can when you can, and don't sweat what you can't. There's always another day!

I think I spent several weeks being completely unexcited about this pregnancy because it was so unexpected. I am slowly getting to the point where I'm excited, but it's taking me a while, and I really hate that for this baby.

and now I think I should paint the onesies after I find out what this baby is so I'm ready for that :)

I've been striving for balance in my life. One thing I did was write down EVERY little thing that consumed my time, and then, I cut some things out, cut back on others, and put the rest in the right place.

For example, I blog - at the very least - on Sundays after church for one hour. Michael watches the kids and all know to leave me alone :-) After that, the blog goes away... unless by some off chance I have extra time and extra stuff to say... like yesterday I wrote three different posts at different times that day and just put them on different times to be published ;-) I learned that froma cool chica named Miranda at Not Super, Just Mom. hehe

The blog has been such an outlet for me that to prioritize away from it seems wrong somehow. And I'd like to see where this thing can take me someday, you know? I'd rather prioritize away from that gifted class but I'm too much of a procrastinating perfectionist. (What a waste of my time!!)

And yes, I could totally use scheduled posting. I so could.
