A Wife Loved Like The Church

Is It Time to Call It Quits?

Posted on: October 12, 2011

I clearly remember hitting a point in my pregnancies with Julia and Hannah where it was challenging to actually be around people. Doesn’t that sound awful? But, it’s true. I didn’t want to be around anyone. I just wanted to bury myself away and sleep until I went into labor.

I’ve officially hit that point again.

The difference between pregnancy 1, 2 and 3 is that you get less and less of a choice to hide away. Kiddo 1 and 2 simply won’t allow it. And while my natural instinct is to crawl into my bed and stay there until Joseph arrives, Julia and Hannah are helping me put on my game face and face the world. It’s good for me. It’s good for our family. Well, so long as I have my coffee.

So, is it time to call it quits? Not quite. But please excuse me while I drink another pot of coffee in hopes of waking up.

Oh, so glad I wasn’t the only one who felt that way! I remember thinking maybe I had some sort of problem, lol. I know Brannon had a hard time understanding why I could hardly even get up the “go” to get ready for church. It’s true and explains why animals usually go off by themselves and are AWAY from everything else when it gets close to delivery time. Hah. In our dreams, right?? πŸ™‚

Keep persevering, mama! You’re doing a great job! The 3rd trimester tiredness is starting to creep up on me (mainly because it’s so hard to sleep at night), so I have a hint of what you mean. The mornings are slower around here than they used to be. And coffee is a must…

Wow…I’m not pregnant and I’m having one of those days. Maybe I should go turn on the coffee pot! πŸ™‚ How did you take the picture of yourself drinking coffee? Did your computer do that? I’m looking at my webcam right now wondering how to make it take a still photo of me. Hmmmm….or wait…maybe your kids took the picture and you weren’t at your computer at all! I feel so….blonde today!! (no offense to other blondes out there!)


You go girl! I definitely didn’t want to get out of bed this morning or most mornings for that matter. Two kids and being pregnant just zap ya! You are almost there!

And don’t forget to go find some awesome cookies or ice cream…those cookies I posted about on FB yesterday seriously turned my day around. πŸ™‚

I have zero experience on this one, but I say it’s understandable. πŸ™‚

I would like to lodge a late comment that you just look pregnant. No enormous, not overdue, not carrying twins- just a small-framed person who is all baby. Just sayin’…

I may have mentioned this before, but my BFF is also shorter and therefore carries pregnancies more obviously said she adopted Jesus’ stance and quit her public ministry at least the last 6 weeks. πŸ˜‰

I SO remember that and feel your pain. You’re such a trooper! πŸ™‚ haha! and I would just like to second Emily/Miss Mommy’s comment.

I agree you are such a trooper! It won’t be long now and sweet little Joseph will be here!!!!

I like your style. Coffee truly makes everything better. πŸ™‚
