Days 88, 89 & 90/365

I need to stay on point now. With this and everything else – this has always been my problem, want to do too much at the same time…I guess the pressure makes me work better/harder? I dunno… 

This next Wednesday I have to go back to work. My maternity leave was cut short and I have to go back earlier than anticipated…which sucks. But you gotta do what you gotta do. 

I realised that I’ll never have the opportunity to stay with my daughter for this amount of time, 24/7, ever again. And when I think about that, it’s a little daunting. But that’s life… 

   
Day 88/365 Oct 30th – sushi night. 

 Day 89/365Oct 31st – Saturday breakfast. This was the day that marked a year that I found out I was pregnant. I got one of those pharmacy tests, and when I saw it was positive I didn’t want to believe it. I told myself that it would only make it official if a doctor told me I was, indeed, pregnant. On November the 2nd, the conversation with the Doctor when like this: 

Me – I’m here because  I did one of those cheap pregnancy tests, and it came out positive.

Doc – oh congratulations! Fantastic! 

Me – … No, no, no, you’re not getting it. It was one of those things you pee on. I need to know if I really am pregnant. 

Doc – *laughing hysterically* oh you are, you are! But let me redirect you…

And then I actually saw it with my own eyes. A white blob, already showing a baby form, in a black monitor. 

I cannot believe that was a year ago. And that white blob turned out to be the prettiest baby, who already has two little teeth showing. 

Unbelievable. 

 
Day 90/365Nov 1st – Sunday brunch. 
    
 We went out for a walk on Saturday and the sky was amazing. 

Have an awesome week everybody! 

Days 85, 86, 87/365

I’ve been feeling rather unstable, emotionally unstable. Sometimes a thought comes into my mind and it’s the end of the world and I find myself on the verge of crying, and after a while it doesn’t really matter anymore, and I feel perfectly okay. 

I dunno what’s wrong… I’m blaming it on hormones. But I don’t like this at all.    

   Day 85/365 Oct 27th – on a walk with Akira, trying to beat the rain (we made it!).
 The sky was looking pretty unstable.

  

Day 86/365
Oct 28th – in a week these mornings will be over. I’m not sure how I feel about that.

Lunch. 

  Souvenirs from all over and a bunch of other stuff.  

Yesterday we had the grandparents over so we went out to take a look at a new flat (not the place for us) and then enjoyed dinner at Hard Rock. #thankgoodnessforgrandparents

 I should’ve gotten the veggie one.

  
Moleskine gift from K and a new deck of cards. 

 

Day 87/365Oct 29th – sweets for breakfast. 

Let’s see what today brings. 

Have a great Friday. 

Day 44/365

Today was a very different Sunday. I woke up at 6.30 to feed Baby L and then got up at 8.30 and amidst if a breakfast consisting of a banana and a few pecans, I fed Baby L again and me and K went out the door, to face our first official 10k. 

  
  
  Day 44/365 – first official 10k. Wouldn’t be complete without a little bump on the road.   

We, the racers, even had a band! And a very good one! 

  

The entire 10k was alongside the sea, which was really really nice. 

  

And after we went for a nice meal at Casanova

 

I was starving so I didn’t even remember to take a picture of this delicious pizza before I ate it – that and Baby L was also getting hungry so I needed to hurry up. 

Needless to say, I’m completely beaten at this point. But very very happy and very proud of myself. Just three months ago I was having a baby, and today I ran a 10k. It was amazing, and it’s an amazing feeling. 

Definitely going to keep it up.
