Since I will probably not believe I ever got this much rest in my life… here is a sample daily schedule.
between 7-8:30 AM – Will wake up, go potty, kiss Chris goodbye, he refills my water bottle, I start drinking, and then head back to bed.
9-10:30 – (I can’t believe I sleep this late!) Wake up, go down stairs, eat breakfast with mom and Harper.
11ish – Spend time with Jesus in the Bible and in prayer. Will check my email, play with Harper (as best I can). And, continue drinking water!
12:30 – Eat lunch. (Have to stand up or sit up straight for 30 minutes so my food can digest enough to go lay down)
1:15/1:30 – lay down, make phone calls, work on projects that I can do while laying down… and drink water.
2:30 – sleep (or try to) while Harper is napping… or I get in the shower.
4:00 – snack with Harper
4:30 – lay on couch or in recliner (depending on how hot I am – couch if super hot b/c it’s leather and the a/c blows directly on the couch – every pregnant girl’s dream!)… or I take a shower if I napped at 2:30…. and drink more water.
6 – Chris usually gets home, visit hang out with him while drinking water.
6:30/7 – we eat dinner (must sit up again to let food digest)
8ish – either on the couch or upstairs in bed laying down. I’m fighting to keep my eyes open to watch 24, Dancing with the Stars, American Idol, or The Office. I’ve never watched so much TV in my life! Truthfully, I’m sick of it! I will also work on blog stuff/ do facebook/ computer stuff at this time. We are canceling cable when the babies arrive… no more TV for us!
9/10 – We head up stairs. Chris and I have started to make a priority (while we have the silence and time) to go to our room, close the door, turn the TV off, and spend quality time together – for about an hour or so. This has been HUGE for our relationship and has really knit our hearts closer together. We’ve started reading Sacred Marriage to each other and then talking about it. GREAT BOOK!!!
10:30/11- We get all ready for bed and then usually turn on The Food Network to go to sleep to It usually takes me about an hour to go to sleep due to all the pillow re-arranging, getting comfy, then having to potty, and starting the process all over again.
Wake up around 2, 4, and 6 am to go potty and drink water. Getting me ready for the babies!
** If you are wondering what Harper is doing all this time, she is hanging out with “Dee Dee”, my mom. They adore each other! (Cute story… this morning I went in to see if Harper was awake. She was playing in her crib with her duck and baby. She immediately stood up and smiled and squealed. Then, she looked past me at the door, and starting calling “Dee Dee” “Dee Dee”. She knows that I can’t pick her up or hold her, so she was like… Where is DeeDee? She’s the one who gets me out of this crib!!!) However, I think that all of us do look forward to the time I can be her mommy again and care for her like I want to be caring for her! This too shall pass, and I’m so thankful for my mom’s help!!!
Baby B got the hiccups for the first time (that I’ve felt!) Baby A has gotten them before… just wondering when Baby C will get them!
