This weekend I have 2 belly dance public performances plus a workshop. This sounds really crazy given my state in pregnancy and the fact that I'm still sick and now *coughing*. However, I'm very much into being as active as possible during pregnancy, I just wish the sick thing would go away.
I'm not nearly as anxious about these performances as I was about the one back in February, because for these I'm wearing the one-piece gown that I own. My belly is adorable, but I was a bit self-conscious about it being so on display a few months back. Plus, I've grown into a very happy comfort level with being the token "pregnant belly dancer" for the time being, and I'm thriving in the role. :) Belly dance makes me feel wonderful, and I'm happy that I've been able to keep up the movements pretty well. I defy anybody to laugh at my belly right now. :)
So, it'll be pretty busy tonight and tomorrow. Thankfully, I slept a lot better last night. Not perfect, but better. It's going to be hard for me to be up past my 9 pm bedtime for 2 nights in a row, but I'm optimistic that adrenaline will carry me through.
After this, the only dancing I'll do until 6 weeks postpartum is in my informal weekly classes. I don't want to commit to any performance until after that because I can't guarantee how I'll feel. I'd love to attend class up until I deliver, so we'll see how that goes.
Other than that, we're making lots of plans for nursery development right now. It's still too chilly here to paint, plus we're booked up with dancing this weekend and an in-law visit next weekend. That one last April weekend prior to Easter we plan for the paint transformation. After Easter, we'll aim for carpet installation and the big furniture move. That will be crazy close to my due date, but it should be fine. Plus, the baby isn't going to be sleeping in there anyway for awhile, so it's no biggie.
We also are making summer/early fall plans, and we have to let our daycare know some information that we simply don't have right now. It's making me a tad anxious, but I keep telling myself that I shouldn't worry and that everything will work out. It all depends on Mike's job situation, and we don't even know when we'll know something, know what I mean? :)
I keep praying that everything will work out fine.
