Hi. I'm still here. Doubtful that many of you are. I've committed a grievous sin in the blog world: I have left my blog unattended for months and months. But I am still here. Hi.
Right now, I'm having trouble typing on my Chromebook. Even with it's little size, the computer is still too big for my significantly smaller lap. This is a pain, one that my cats (who are on the "pleasantly plump" side) are very upset about. But I'll take it.
I am in the home stretch, friends. I am over 36 weeks pregnant now and we are all doing well. It would be a lie to say this was an easy pregnancy-being 40 as opposed to being 31 has proved much more difficult than even I thought. While we've had no complications, things have been tough. My exhaustion is more intense this time around. I have not yet had the lovely "nesting" syndrome that hits pregnant women. There was no "Superwoman" second trimester phase. Since week 16, my feet and ankles have remained swollen in an alarming manner. (No worries, blood pressure is fine.) My back aches constantly. I haven't breathed through my nose easily since we conceived. And while I know this sounds like complaining, it's not. I delight in it, even when I'm uncomfortable and out of sorts.
I have lots more to share. Like how Builder Boy reacted to the news of becoming a big brother and how he has come to accept it and possibly even be excited by it. Or all the things I had forgotten about being pregnant-good and bad. About the people praying for this baby and how incredibly blessed this baby is. And how my house right now has been overtaken by all things pink. :) But we'll save that for a later date. Just know I'm still here, just bigger, and a lot more quiet than I've been in a super long time.
