Happy 4th of July to Everyone!!!!!!!!

One week today until I leave!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WOWZA!!!!!!!!!

So much to do, so little time…crazy mode! And all I want to do is sit by the A/C all day and watch Netflix…a wish, oh how I can wish!

I am getting some weird discomfort in my stomach – happened yesterday evening and then again this morning – it’s like around my ribs and it’s making it hard to pick up things from the ground or bend over – I am thinking the little schmonkey is getting in all kinds of places inside my stomach with his constant moving!

My mum said that either I or my brother (can’t remember) was stuck up in her ribs for a long time towards the end of her pregnancy….let’s hope that doesn’t happen!!

The bubbles are not supposed to be aimed at my organs little schmonkey!!!

That’s just a bizarre concept isn’t it??? I mean the whole thing is!! A little mini human growing inside of you is CRAZY!!!! And that there is room for that is CRAZY!!! And that the organs move around to allow this nature work is FREAKY!!!!!!

I know I’m going to get bigger but I just don’t know how that’s possible!!! How is there any more room to do so!! I feel HUGE and sooooooooooo stretched and bloated already!!!

It’s making my eye twitch again just thinking about it!!! HAHA!!

It’s funny as your eye twitching feels like it’s so dramatic and a huge gesture like you can’t stop winking or something, when in reality it is barely noticeable! But if feels ridiculous – especially when you are trying to talk to someone and you are looking at them in the eyes and then the twitch happens! HAHA!!

I still find it funny when I have to explain my whole 365 to people! It cracks me up as it’s now become 12 criteria with the addition of no alcohol – which then leads me to explaining I was on a detox for the first week of just fruit and veg, which then leads me to say:

“….I started this 365 challenge and then 9 days later I found out I was pregnant!”

Which is super crazy!

I then get asked though why I didn’t just stop then and there when I found out I was pregnant….which is a valid question…but I didn’t know what was going on back then (I still don’t!!) – but my mind was all on getting through and I was so busy and had so much to think about, and a week retreat upstate with the theatre company  I was in rehearsals with….and I don’t know, 365 just kept on going.

I guess I had bigger things to think about.

And, despite how harsh this sounds, my initial reaction to finding out I was pregnant was a big “No!” so I didn’t know what I was going to do to be honest – this was all a shock and not planned, and interfered with the two weddings and honeymoon we had ahead of us with the due date falling on the exact date of when the Greek wedding was supposed to be….so I was thrown.

I guess I didn’t know then what the future held. I had to figure out whether I was going to move forward with the pregnancy or not first. And the days ticked by, meaning the 365 challenge kept going in the meantime, and then I got stuck as the days added up and up and up (which granted was not to a very big number) but it felt accomplished and something I couldn’t imagine quitting or starting again from scratch.

And we all know I am friggin’ insane!

It’s funny as when I decided to start this 365 challenge this year I thought about how much of a challenge it would be to have two weddings and then a honeymoon, and how interesting that would be for people reading along – like that of a reality TV show.

I had NO idea that there would be a giant twist in the show!!! 🙂

And now how can I stop?? I’m on day 177!!!!!

But believe me when I say that there have been moments where I really wish I didn’t have to do this anymore! Especially since I am so busy and so now 365 has ended up being something I have to do when I get home late and that’s the last thing I want to do!

I’m soooooooo tired my right eye won’t stop twitching!!

Kalo Mina! (Happy First Day of the Month in Greek)

May is my month, well and Stuart’s: tomorrow is my birthday, on the 15th of May is when we got engaged, and on the 19th of May was when we first met and will be celebrating four years! A month of celebrations!

It was a good start to the month – it was predicted to be thunderstorming all day but cleared up and stopped raining, and the sun came out!

Another good thing was that everyone in the cast of my presentation I had today at The Actors Studio didn’t know I was pregnant! They all said they couldn’t tell and would not have known 🙂 So, I guess the bump is not as BOOMING as it is and feels like to me! OR….they all think that I am fat instead!! Great!!

Went back to the maternity shop today as it was on my walk to the subway. They had one of those 7 month predictor belly belts in the dressing room that you can try on with the clothing. I put it on to see what it would look like and freaked out!!!!! It made me look and feel like…

Stuart came to pick me up from there to go to a pre-birthday dinner.

What do you get when you put Stuart in a maternity shop full of preggos = UNCOMFORTABLE! And silent 🙂 Hahaha!


Farewell age 30!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!
