Cup Half Full: In The Past Week

Sunday, July 1, 2012

... we've been at the ER three times (2 of the times during the middle of the night = miserable). Joshua ended up getting diagnosed with a staph infection that has caused him a lot of pain. It was finally the third doctor that gave it to us real and told us that he wouldn't be able to get back to work for a week. We are trying to make the best of it and are enjoying this time together before our baby girl arrives.

... we bought some of the remaining items off of our registry that we needed to bring little E home: a crib mattress, a changing pad, diapers, the monitor... We are still working on the aesthetics of the nursery but for now feel comfortable enough knowing that if she were to come early, we'd have everything we needed.

... I've had on and off Braxton Hicks contractions. Yesterday they were so uncomfortable that we had to leave church a little early. I was reading that dehydration can be a cause of them, so I've been trying to chug water today. I know that this 100 degree heat isn't helping. If you have any tips on how to stay comfortable during the last 4 weeks of pregnancy, please let me know! :)

... I've missed my family and friends back in San Diego more than ever and wish that my parents would move out here ASAP :) It's always nice to be back in our hometown, but it makes coming back home that much harder.

... monsoon weather has officially started. That means afternoon rainstorms that make the house all gloomy and I don't feel guilty for staying in my sweats and cuddling with my puppy and hubby all day.

... Joshua's great-aunt passed away unexpectedly (seriously she was just at our baby shower last weekend, so sad), his sister had thyroid surgery, my dad had a complete toe surgery, my nephews got the flu AND lice, and Joshua had his staph infection like I previous mentioned... what a week!

DESPITE it all, it's been a beautiful week of down time... of just enjoying this beautiful home we just bought and not tackling any big projects. The last 7 month of our lives have been non-stop and I am so thankful for this blessing in disguise-- no schedule, no work, no plans-- to just soak up some more time together before we become a family of three!

While I'm on this topic of rest, I just wanted to let you all know that this will be the last "Cup 1/2 Full" link up for awhile.. I'm not sure if I'll bring it back in the fall, or if I'll bring it back at all... just wanted to keep you in the loop :) Thank you for linking up each week over the past 20 WEEKS!-- I know I don't always have the time to comment, but I really do try to read each one! xo

Wow, you guys have so much going on! It's great you're staying so positive and looking at the good things.

Gosh, you've got a lot going on at the moment. But I'm pleased you are finding time to rest up as you approach this last stretch of pregnancy.
I wanted to say thanks for running such a great linky, I'll definitely miss it as I've enjoyed linking up and have found a ton of great new blogs as a result. But I also know what a bind linkys can end up being and you will obviously have other things on your mind in the not too distant future.
Thank care, x

that is a lot in a week!

i hope joshua gets better son and it will be lovely to have this time together to just relax and enjoy each others company.

and i am learning that pregnancy can be tiring and you have to slow down a bit so i don't know how you are coping doing it all :)

as we talk about when we want to have babies, I think about being pregnant in the dead of summer in Texas and I kind of want to plan around that. Hang in there girl! So close!

Jamie said...

What a week! I'm so sorry to hear about Josh's great-aunt. It is so encouraging to see your heart and faith stay strong in the midst of the trials you have been through this past week. My sister in law would take baths when she had braxton hicks really bad in this last pregnancy. And that picture!?! Stunning!!!

Shane said...

Keep your head up! You look STUNNNING my dear!

Oh those braxton hicks can be so uncomfortable...drink lots of water and rest! That is the nice thing about a baby, it forces you to just stop and have a slower pace for a while :) Enjoy these last few weeks with just the two of you!

so sorry to hear that joshua is sick and so much is going on.
prayers for you and your family for comfort today. love to you!

Kassi @ Truly Lovely said...

Sounds like you've been crazy busy! Hopefully the rest of your pregnancy will be a little less exciting a little more relaxation! ;)

Katelyn said...

Goodness gracious! So much going on with you guys! I'm so glad to hear you're making the best of it though. I can't wait til your beautiful baby comes and I wish you guys the best leading up to it! Tell Joshua I hope he feels better soon!
