laundry and other labors

I am so wiped out! My last OB told me that the closer you get to 30, the harder pregnancy can be on your body. I didn't think much of it because in my mind I never saw myself getting closer and closer to 30. Well, 30 is right around the corner and I must say this pregnancy is kicking my butt! I have learned something about myself in moving here to Arizona...I am obsessed with having a clean house. I don't have a clean house but I obsess about it all of the time! Today I have been trying to do laundry and that simple act has made me so tired and sore! Usually I at least have things picked up but lately I just can't keep things picked up and in order. I have to learn to relax and stop obsessing about it.

I was the same way. I tried to show people that I could still do everything. Crazily one day I decided to sweep my carpet. I was on a mission to sweep my carpet in the whole house. I just didn't feel like my vaccuum was doing enough. Boy was I wrong. I only did my living room.

Take a deep breath and relax. You are going to need to have the energy later. Rest up.

It's such a sad realization that 30 is creeping up on us. Can't believe it!
Definitely take it easy...you deserve it!
