Well, I’m now more than 34 weeks into this pregnancy. Only 6 weeks to go – yay!
But, I’m getting to where a lot of things are more difficult for me to do. My back hurts all of the time and I’m always out of breath. I get tired very easily. And I get frustrated more easily too.
I just can’t do everything I normally can… and I feel guilty for it! What’s up with that? I remember feeling some preggo guilt when I was pregnant with Zoë, but not as much as this time around. Well, it’s possible that my preggo brain just erased it from my memory…
I want to be able to do my freelance writing, work on this blog, keep up on my other blog and website, work on our e-book for our other website that we’re about to re-launch, spend plenty of quality time with Zoë, spend time with my husband/be a good wife, keep my house clean, prepare healthy meals, get mentally ready to be a mommy of two under two and steal a few minutes for myself here and there.
I feel like a juggler that has too many balls up in the air and is doing just enough to keep everything up in the air, but not doing anything spectacular or show worthy. It can be an overwhelming feeling sometimes…
I know that I’m probably just putting too much pressure on myself… I am an admitted perfectionist. I guess I just need to let go a little and realize my house isn’t always going to be clean. My writing isn’t going to be perfect no matter how much heart I put into it. And I can’t always do everything 100%.
Letting go is a lot easier said than done sometimes. Do/did you feel preggo guilt? How did you find balance?
