Week in review: 18 – 24 October 2021

This week was an up and down to be very honest. Nothing particularly bad happened, but neither did something particularly good. I felt more like stagnating and not feeling balanced. Good news is that we have hit the third trimester of the pregnancy already, but also my body is changing at an even higher speed. Almost everything feels uncomfortable, unless I am floating in the swimming pool. On the other hand it is amazing how much I, or rather we, can now feel our baby kicking. And now that we have started the 7th month, she already has a fair chance of surviving, should something bad happen. All of that feels pretty good and also magical.

Since we had a few warm and sunny days, I spent quite some time on our roof deck. When we bought the apartment, the roof deck was one of my priorities and I should definitely make even more use of it. But sometimes it is just easier to stay inside and cuddle with the cat ladies. Really, they are just the best. They orbit us at all times. Last night I woke up and realized they had taken over half of the bed – but as a good cat mom, I tried not to wake them up, but move carefully around them, ha ha.
