Robert Morris volleyball teams did their second Dig Purple volleyball event to raise money for our home. It was a huge blessing! We took some of our high school deeper students with us. Thank you so much to all of you who supported RMU volleyball, Dig Purple, and our family! The event raised over $1000! Here is the video Tyler made! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gCfDkLkPhRg&feature=youtu.be
Today I went and got my hair cut and colored and added some purple for Sanfilippo. I really like it!
This pregnancy has been physically and emotionally difficult. I have never been a good pregnant person….and toward the last few months, it has really taken a toll. I know looking back you forget most of it, but I wanted to blog about the yucky-ness so I don’t forget! I have almost every symptom in the book. From top to bottom, my ears have been plugged most of my 3rd trimester, I have heartburn….when I am not nauseous or vomiting. I have breasts that weigh 5 pounds each (sorry if this is TMI) and a ever growing belly that has now blocked the view of my feet. It is so uncomfortable and I just want a break from carrying it. She moves like there is dance music and my belly is the club, and of course it is at the least desirable times of the night. I pee every 2 hours at night so I have not slept an entire night in months. My back hurts, I can’t see or bend over to even wipe my butt J My thighs ache and my ankles are swollen…I have even woken up in the middle of the night with a foot cramp that leaves me limping for days. I think my toes are painted….they seem so far away … and yes, I waddle. I waddle all the time. Emotionally I am bi-polar….one minute crying the next yelling, and finally laughing. There. I am done complaining. Don’t get me wrong. I know ALL the blessings, and don’t take a moment for granted, but in the spirit of honesty, the actually stuff pregnancy does to me sucks.
