Friday, September 12, 2014 I recently remembered that my original due date was today (based on my cycle), but they pushed it back 6 days based on baby’s size at the 11 week ultrasound. So depending on what your reference is, I’m 39 or 40 weeks now. Either way, far enough along to attempt to speed things up with a little membrane stripping today at my appointment. Com’mon baby G! You’re welcome anytime 😄

It’s been an interesting week. Sam recently began grad school (thankfully he’ll only be gone two weekends and a few nights monthly for it) which has been tiring for him and tiring for me as I played solo, pregnant parent much of the weekend, and now I’m trying to give him the space he needs each morning to get his work done before going to his full time job. I’m grateful for that man, his hard work and the past 8 months that he’s been handling Remy every morning while I sleep in (or try to). I appreciated it while it was happening, but now I wish I could go back and REALLY enjoy that time.
To put it simply, I’ve complained a lot more this pregnancy than with Remy’s and I’m still complaining.
The last few days have put things into a bit of perspective. We’ve had multiple friends and family members discover major health related problems/injuries/unresolved crises and have to endure them while trying to do all the same things I’ve been complaining about doing. I have always been blessed with good health and I continue to assume I’ll have it. To see others struggling in this area, while I’m not and yet I’m the one complaining, has been pretty emotional for me. I know I’ve had my fair share of trials in my life, but at this particular time, I think it’s appropriate for me to step back, be grateful for all that is going SO well for me right now, and check the groaning at the door.
I’m 37 weeks as of yesterday and thankful for my little (though growing) family and the opportunity to be able to be present for them and visa versa. Even if my health was in serious decline, their love makes me feel secure, content, happy.
And how can I complain about that?

Saturday, August 23, 2014 During/After first pro haircut. They took off about 3 inches! Necessary, because those inches were always covered in something sticky and then stuck to her neck.

Wednesday, August 13, 2014 She was thrilled to see such a large “ball” and begged to sit on it. I indulged her for about 5 minutes, but I’m fairly sure she could have sat there all day. #simplepleasures

Friday, July 25, 2014 I don’t love taking these photos, and am seriously missing my regular sized clothing, but I’m sure one day I’ll be happy that I documented this. Right? I’m feeling much better than a few days ago, just incredibly tired, but that’s kind of the way this process goes at this point. Thanks for the well wishes and prayers. #32weeks #pregnancy
