Happy Monday- I’m hoping your week is starting off well! We had a full weekend of fun and spent last night getting the house in order so I’m hoping to start the week off well. It took two of us, two shows, two bowls of cereal and at least two hours to get laundry finally all folded and put together last night. No wonder it’s taken us weeks to get to the piles.
On Friday Easton had soccer practice (our fate every Friday night now) and it was quite the practice. They had their first practice game and Easton scored his first couple of goals. He full on somersaulted and danced every time he scored and it was adorable! According to him it was the best day ever and I’m sure he meant it. We headed to Family Fun night at his school afterwards and spent a boatload of money on hot dogs, wristbands and sticker and tattoo prizes. Neither Soren or I lost our minds so I consider the night a success.
Saturday was also jam packed, but it was a rough day for me. Most days I wake up feeling physically pretty well. I’m always tired, but I’ve learned that I really get depressed during my first trimester. I struggle wanting to get up, to get things done or to keep moving as things overwhelm me throughout the day. If things typically overwhelm me, they overwhelm me double or triple that level right now. Saturday was definitely a battle all day long to not climb back under the covers and just mope. But I just kept moving and praying and the day ended up turning around for me.
We had a fun morning at the Easter Egg Hunt and then in the afternoon I prepped for our Nickel & Suede Mother’s Day photo shoot. We had several mother/daughter sets model for us so I did makeup and chose outfits and then we headed downtown to take photos. I think it turned out well and I’m very relieved to have it off my plate. With pregnancy brain in full force right now, my vision and creativity is suffering heavily so I felt pretty unsure going into the whole project.
Now I’m moving on to preparing and stressing over the next project. I am fortunate enough to be able to speak at a local blog conference Go Blog Social in just under two weeks and I feel like it will be here before I know it. I’m speaking on growing a business from your blog and while that is what I have done, I feel like I don’t have concrete ideas written down about how I’ve done that. I’ll be spending the next two weeks doing a lot of brainstorming and drafting and I’m sure it will turn out. Regardless it is an amazing opportunity and I am really excited about it.
Did you struggle with depression during your first trimester? Any tips for pushing through it?
