37 weeks

My goodness. Where has the time gone and where has my lower body gone ( I can’t see it if I look down while standing.) I’m slightly panicking. I’m not ready. His room is finally coming along. I’m def over being pregnant, it’s so hard to do freaking normal things that I am so used to doing.  For example sitting up in the bed in the morning!!! I miss sleeping on my belly! I’m such a procrastinator.  I haven’t finished packing my hospital bag nor have I set the car seat up in my car.  I’ll just make this post about this week and I’ll follow up with a post about pregnancy for me overall.

 This week- This little boy likes to violently kick me late at night. He’ll kick enough during the day so you know he’s there, but then he turns up at about 10pm. Time is definitely ticking and he will be here before you know.  Mommy and Daddy are excited and extremely nervous.  I have already come to terms about labor that it will hurt and there is nothing I can do to take that away.  I’ll probably act a fool in the hospital.(lol) I just pray everything goes smoothly with us these last few weeks into labor.  After that, I know it gets hard, but I figure God wouldn’t have blessed us with this baby boy if we couldn’t get it done.  I had no idea how expensive babies really and truly were but, I am def turning into a penny pincher who likes to shop.  If it’s on sale I’ll probably buy it.  Last week Dr said the baby had not dropped all the way yet and I had barely dilated any.

There is still so much I feel the need to do.  his room isn’t complete, but the buyers remorse in me is saying wait for what you want to go on sale.

**Coach’s Tip: **A good piece of advice from me is once you have your baby showers (I had 3). Then start stalking what big things you still need.  Stalk them on whatever website or store they may be at.  Look for any deals you can get. For example I am still in need of a rug and a rocker.  I already know what rocker I want.  As for the rug I want a grey soft plush one, since his room is hard wood.  Well two weeks ago Walmart had 10% cashback through ebates, I have no idea why I just didn’t purchase it then! I’m beating myself up over it and now they only have a measly 4% cash back.  It’s more than the normal 1% but it isn’t 10%.  Now for the rug, I found one that acceptable at Target and it’s on sale but I feel like I can get it for cheaper.  Them I found this amazing one at Tj Maxx.  It’s a little more expensive but it’s heavenly soft.  You know at TJ maxx if you don’t buy it right then and there you may be out of luck.  I have another app called shopkicks and you get points for going into stores.  Those points can be redeemed for gift cards.  So I figured if i can get this $25 that’ll make the rug cheaper.  Still won’t be as cheap as the target one but it will feel much better.  So shop around, and don’t settle, unless you feel like you this deal won’t be beat! IE- the walmart one.

Until Next time– Coach C.

Well Hello Blogging world…

Hello out there,

I am going by Coach C on the blog.  I am from Texas.  If you have not read my about me section, this is almost repetitive I feel like, but may be I can go into more depth about myself.  I chose to start this blog because I want to share my life to a certain extent with you. So the point of this blog is keep it 100 about the life I live and the world I live in.  I wear many hats on a day to day basis.

Just me- From Texas. Graduated from the University of Texas. Lived in Austin for 6 years.  Moved back to Houston in 2014. Expecting first child with Boyfriend.  He’s due August 2nd.

Teacher- I won’t tell you what school I work at due to privacy reasons.  I will tell you about it.  I will be starting my fourth year once I do go back to work.  I am a PE teacher, I do plan on getting another certification soon, which I have been telling myself for years, but I am the QUEEN of procrastination.  Diamonds are made when the pressure is on.  The school I work at is a one of a kind.  We are a title one school.  This school takes special people to work at.  My first year was pretty hard.  We got a new principal half way thru the year.  People quit before the semester was over.  Many people didn’t finish the year out.  It was a high turnover rate.  Now as we begin year 4- We have a new principal.  I’m sure we have other new people as well, seeing as I have been staying away from work this summer due to me wanting to enjoy my summer and being pregnant.

Coach-  I have been the head basketball coach at the HS for 3 years and we have had a very successful program.  This year I decided to step down and relinquish my program to someone who will have more energy and time for the girls.  Seeing as the BF is a basketball coach as well I decided to make the sacrifice because we have the same game days and it was going to be very difficult both of us coming home at 10 or later two or more times a week.  I will be moving to Varsity girls track this year.  I will def touch base on this more in the blog.  As a head coach to these girls I play many roles.  I’ve been parents, best friend, sibling, mentor, provider, driver. You name it, I’ve been it!

New Mommy- Yall will be on this journey with me.  There has been many things I have learned plus more to learn.  I will share many things with you.  Starting with my first blog post- PS it’s already up.  I also posted my first coaching tip with it.  I am having a boy and beyond excited for the adventures he will bring to our lives.

Beauty enthusiast/ shopper!-  I will share review here of different products and any deals or hacks I may use.  I love makeup and shopping esp when it’s on sale.  I started by trying to share my life thru youtube, but I’m so low maintenance that dealing with a camera and filming and editing just took too much extra time from me.  I did a few videos last summer but at the end of the school year just couldn’t get back into it.  So i figured I would better enjoy writing.  I can do it from my phone or computer.

Sport Junkie- Well obviously if I coached basketball and volleyball and am now moving to track! I love sports I always have and I always will.  I love basketball, but can watch or play any sport possible.  Expect posts on coaching tidbits and any major sporting issues.

 

I’ll try to post 1-2 a week, but as a new mother, teacher, coach, and trying to keep from household from exploding it may be hard at times.  I’ll ask that you bare with me as we endure this journey together!
