I’ve got about 8 weeks to go insha’Allah til we meet the new addition to our family. Time has gone so quickly subhanAllah and I haven’t prepared anything.
Our home needs a lick of paint, baby’s cot needs to come out of storage and clothes and bag ready but I really don’t feel I have the energy or will at the moment!
I don’t know if its because I’m reaching the end – but I am really feeling it now – very tired, constantly on the loo, and braxton hicks that feel like contractions. Blood tests have revealed am very anaemic which explains a lot.
I’m also a hormonal mess lol! I don’t feel I have patience with anyone or anything. My poor kids and husband.
I am running around like a crazy woman taking the kids to their different activities and am completely shattered all day everyday. Don’t feel like doing very much but am pushing myself because I feel as though I’ll be out of it for a while once baby is born.
I don’t want to sound ungrateful as every pregnancy and child is a real blessing from Allah but I’m seriously feeling very tired and old!
Home Ed has its ups and downs and right now I feel as though we’re on a downer because of my health. R is reading a lot mashaAllah – this is a real blessing as she likes reading non fiction books so she’s widening her knowledge. The boys just seem to be fighting constantly which is very draining.
I know this time will pass but just to show that home ed life is very very real and not a bunch of roses!
