Almost there!

Hey friends, what's cookin?


I'm super quiet these days on here, and I apologize for that! I do try to catch up with your content at least once per week and interact some, but to be honest my level of energy is totally down the drain, so after I'm done with regular office work, I usually "run" straight for the couch to take a nap. Don't take it personal, it's not that I'm not interested in reading what you're all up to.

It sucks because Steemit is all about networking and maintaining relationships, and I know I'm failing on that end at the moment. But it is what it is...

I also want to make more videos...the ideas are not missing, but when I do manage to find a spark of energy these days, a quick look in the mirror dissuades me from pressing that REC button. I look like a zombie. I'm just not feeling so camera sexy ATM. Some of you sweet people say I look great, but I know you're just being nice...unless by great you are referring to my current size LOL.

this is pretty much it these days

So what's new on my end?

Nothing much. I'm currently planning a small baby shower. I know you may think "but isn't that an American thing?", and you'd be totally right. But here in Panama people also celebrate it, and it's a great way to alleviate some of the costs involved with a newborn. Also, don't imaging anything crazy...just a nice little get-together with friends and family and playing silly games. People get to get drunk while I watch them sipping on my lemonade =).

I always thought babies don't cost much. It's not like they can actually ask for stuff! They just eat, poop and sleep, right?

WRONG. You gotta buy a crib, a baby carrier, breast pumps (not particularly excited about that part!), a stroller, a car seat, diapers, bottles, towels, sheets, toys, a bathtub, rash cream and all sorts of other fun stuff. You won't believe how much some of that stuff can cost, it's insane. But thankfully I have many friends who recently had babies, so I'm inheriting most of it already.

workouts?

Other than that I'm still trying to keep somewhat active, although it's getting quite hard. I'm at 7.5 months now, and that famous pregnancy fatigue is back. Meaning you sleep at least 10 hours at night and still wake up feeling like you're on sleeping pills that haven't worn off. The feeling pretty much lasts all day, but I'm trying to move my ass down to the gym at least twice per week for a little weight session. I think I will tonight...I hope!

I went to my BJJ gym last week to observe part of the training, and boy do I miss the mats. I saw the guys rolling and just wanted to take off my shoes and jump in. It will take me awhile to get back there (I'm counting 8 weeks of recovery after birth if all goes well), but it was nice to see the boys training. I used to feel depressed about not being able to go, but I'm OK with it now. I have accepted that it's just a matter of patience, and those mats will still be there for me when I get back in August.

Alright enough rambling from me for today. This was a total free-write, so I hope you don't mind my scattered thoughts. I hope you are all doing well, and I promise to go visit your pages soon to check in.

Lots of Steem love to everyone!

Eve

Ohhh I'm soo excited about that upcoming first pic of you three together :)) I totally love your dedication to workouts haha, 7.5 months in and still doing 2 sessions per week? I guess it puts you to top 20% of the world population anyway haha :D

Don't worry about how you look on video Eve, I never do and look awful most of the time. But then I've never really cared much about my looks since I stopped working, I am what I am. You're fine !!

·

thanks girl, it's no biggie, but since I don't feel 100% most of the time, it shows on my face and in my general "vibe" in the videos...the sleepy zombie vibe LOL. And I don't think you look bad in yours at all!!!

Congratulations! I didn't know you were pregnant. Yes, they are super expensive. It doesn't end after the baby stuff either. Then you need shoes every 6 months, clothes, etc. They're worth it though. :)

·

thank you @finnian =) ah yes the expenses....and they grow so fast. Most of the baby stuff got from my friends is brand new because they only use it for such a short amount of time.

I have three boys too. Food is the second largest monthly expense I have! haha It is one of many reasons I've looked at leaving the USA, for food prices here are absurd.

Thanks for the update dear Eve! I really do appreciate hearing how everything is going. Can't imagine the kind of tiredness one must feel from growing a HUMAN. Basically all energy goes to that first and then if something is left you will get to enjoy it... But that must cut short quite a few times ;-)

I hope you get tons of stuff and am glad you can inherit so much!!! People buy so much new stuff for their babies but most stuff is only used for a few months right? Babies grow out of everything pretty fast so every secondhand baby-item is still quite new.

Anyway, just here to send over a HUG.

Thanks mamacita im glad you don’t get bored of my updates 😜 yeah it’s crazy how tired pregnancy makes you, I would have never expected that! And everyone keeps telling me to sleep as much as possible now because afterwards it will be impossible 😂

That's the secrete to avoid outright bankrupcy :)
