The Bachelorette, A Meltdown, A Pick-Me-Up, And A Revelation!

I HAVE to blog about my day yesterday! It was such an up and down emotional roller coaster!

First, I slept in (which is always a perfect way to start any day, am I right?) and while Michael was away working a little overtime, I watched The Bachelorette. I don't think I have ever mentioned on here that I watch that show. I didn't used to...until about a year ago. I just get sucked into the drama of it all! So anyway, Bentley is one of the guys Ashley is choosing from and he is so clearly an outright JERK. He's not even trying to hide the fact that he is there for the wrong reasons. Everything he says to the cameras behind her back makes me so angry. For example, he said he would rather swim in a pool of pee than plan a wedding with Ashley because she isn't his type. That's just ONE example. Ugh. Luckily he will be leaving the show after next week.

I could go on and on about that show but I'll just leave it at that!

When Michael got home, we finally got motivated to go to the gym but when we got there I couldn't believe how completely and utterly incapable I was to even get a work out in. After just a half mile WALKING on the treadmill I was sore and had to go to the bathroom. I was walking at a 20 minute mile pace, people. With that in mind, and also seeing all these tiny, fit ladies running around, I just lost it. By the time we were driving away I was sobbing. Michael was really nice and comforting. I explained that yes, I know I am pregnant, but it is still SO hard to not be able to do things I used to. I'm the weakest I've ever been and I miss being in shape. I had a bit of a pity party for myself.

What did Michael do to cheer me up? We turned on some happy music and he drove straight to The Coffee Bean without even me asking him to. He knows me so well!! I love that man. We went in and after sitting and talking while sipping my Pure Chocolate I was already feeling so much better. There was still a hint of sunshine hitting my back and he helped me realize that I really am living a great life. I have my own challenges just like everyone does, but I am so lucky to have a husband who loves me and a healthy baby on the way.

Then, this is where my day got even better! He mentioned that Monday he had a moment when he thought of a name for the baby. He said it was a pretty strong impression and he just forgot until then to tell me. I couldn't believe it because I had just been thinking about that same name Monday night when I was in bed falling asleep!! We had both, separately, thought of the same name and discovered it the next day! It came as such a surprise because we had already pretty much had a different name picked out for a while and now all the sudden we both felt that this new name was a better fit for this particular baby. I still love our old name but for some reason this new name is feeling right for both of us! How cool is that?! It was such an amazing experience! We both felt that it was inspiration.

Anyway, I had to write that down! I'm 24 weeks now. The baby weighs about 1 1/4 lbs. and is about as big as an ear of corn! She looks pretty cramped in there!

I still haven't picked a name for my Little Man. It's a big decision and I can't blindly label someone, I have issues lol. That is why I am taking a list of my top 10 names with me to the hospital and I'll name him there. I'm glad you guys found a name and it's something you both agree on :)

I cant believe how close its getting to you having a baby! I feel like you just announced you were pregnant! Thanks for the bachelorette recap...I can delete it in the DVR now :)

I love the The Bachelor/Bachelorette! It's so fun to watch. Josh hates it though. That's awesome you guys have a name for the baby, I'm guessing it's a secret since you didn't say what it was?

You're such a tease. I thought for sure you'd at least announce the name in your blog. Will you at least announce the old name you'd thought of? Sheeeeeesh.

And shoot, I feel you. And every woman who's been pregnant can relate. Every pregnancy is different, too. My last pregnancy, I felt so cute. Most likely because when I delivered, I weighed the same as when I got prego. This time around, I'm catching up to how much my massive 6' husband weighs! Doesn't do ANYTHING for my self esteem, other than hurt it. It's by far the most depressing thing to date. Especially when I think about how much work it'll take to get my body back...whatever that body is. :) So yes, you're not alone dear.

I'm so happy for you! I totally know how you feel in regards to the whole meltdown thing then count your blessings, but sometimes it's just a BAD MOMENT. As long as you don't let your moments become a lifestyle of emotion and mood swings then it's totally OK to be upset about the little things! Haahaha. Us women just have it harder, don't we?!

Also, thanks so much for the sweet words about house hunting. It helps me realize that my problems will work out! Haha!
