The Level I'm At Right Now

Hey friends! My pregnancy brain is REAL. I thought I'd confess with y'all the level I'm at right now. And have been at this whole week. You're welcome to laugh at my expense.




1) When I sneezed on Thursday night, I peed myself. Like, preggo-peed-in-pants peed. I hear that's common in late pregnancy. It never happened with Henry. He was also a c section baby so loose Kegals aren't to blame here. I'm just at that level.

2) I spent my 10 Henry-free hours this week editing photos for future posts. Way future posts. Then when I realized how far out these posts are scheduled and that I *should* finish my work for this week, I went and played on social media. My brain gave zero you-know-whats. I'm just at that level.

3) I DID make it to 2 barre and 3 yoga classes! Some of the moves in barre were putting a lot of pressure on my cervix so I just sat on my mat and watched people. The instructor came over to give me some modifications and I was like, no. I'm cool. I'm just going to sit this one out. Then I was that creepy pregnant woman people watching in a barre class. At least in yoga I'm kicking in in child's pose, but barre? Yeah, I'm watching you do your planks, what now?! I'm just at that level.

4) I tried to shave my legs in the shower, and grabbed my hoo-ha because I seriously thought the use of my abs to pull my leg up to mow down the small forest growing there my slight leg hair was going to immediately eject Otto from the birth canal. So three lines got shaved into one leg. Then I called it a day. I'm just at that level.

5) My contractors showed up to finish my bathroom! But first, I used my ability to put the fear of God in a person. You see, people weren't returning phone calls and being generally elusive and this bathroom should have been done the first week in October. I was done playing nice, and it wasn't getting me anywhere anyway. So I lit a few fires, cracked a few skulls, dropped a few f bombs and low and behold! Contractors showed back up to finish the job. My level of crazy assertiveness was just at that level.

My level hasn't stopped my ability to link up for the Friday fun with Amanda, Karli, April and H54F!

Yeah, so that's what's been going down this week. Scatter brained, pants-peeing, creepy and crazy Paige was out in full force. That's the level I'm at right now.

  1. Oh goodness, Paige, it sounds like you are more than ready for lil Otto to make an appearance [in his time of course]. Wish I had advice, but since I've never been there I'm not going to pretend. Cheers to scaring the poop out of people to get something done you go girl! Hope you have a good weekend.

  6. Hahahahaha. This post sums up perfectly why I love you so much! Glad you didn't shoot Otto out into the bathtub. That would have been unfortunate.

  8. Ugh, I swear I need my own laptop so I stop signing in as my hubby. This sharing thing is for the birds. Like I was saying...
    Ha! Hey, sometimes you just need to crack some skulls to get sh*t done. Ain't nothing wrong with that! I told the hubs when I get too big he's going to have to shave for me. He needs to step up a bit anyways. And peeing yourself....yep, just happens sometimes. Oh the joys of pregnancy. Glad Otto is still enjoying his warm cozy home! :)

  12. This made me giggle :) I had one of those moments the other morning when bending down and putting on my socks was "JUST TOO HARD" as I (not so) gently and lovingly announced to my husband who came in from the other room to help me. I have a feeling it will only get worse as the pregnancy progresses! Thanks for being real and making me laugh ;)

  15. My husband is going to have to help me with the leg shaving when I get to that point when I'm pregnant in the future! hahahaha. That's so funny!!!

  16. Oh honey lol the struggle is real.
    Did you ask your hubs to shave the rest of your legs later on??

    ReplyDelete
  17. Oh my, do I remember those days! Glad you're taking it all in stride and able to laugh about it!

  18. Oh for Pete's sake, pregnancy brain is TOTALLY the truth!!!! I'm glad you're able to laugh off all these silly things! <3

  19. AHH! This post made me smile so big! So sorry to hear you are at that level right now! But, I hear ya and I am not even pregnant! I remember it though, and I was on fire some days! Shaving your legs when preggo is the worst! Our shower is TINY and I had the hardest time. And girl, you are probably putting all the other Barre girls to shame with your participation, so if you sit out a few "being creepy!" I'm sure everyone understands! But love it all. Hope you had a wonderful weekend and got some rest!

  22. Oh man...this reminds me of when I was 9 months pregnant with my second...and our dishwasher broke and our apartment was taking it's sweet time to fix it. Yeah, my nesting was kicking in and I was VERY INSISTENT about that and probably a little over the top. But they got up there the next day.
