June and July: I’m totally slacking here and I have no excuses and no apologies. June and July just simply flew by. Paul was busy with youth work camps and trips. We had a few baby showers, he played some gigs, and we continued to prepare ourselves to become parents! The trips have now wound down and work travel for me is doing the same. I’m 32 weeks today. 8 weeks to go, which seems nearly impossible. Just flipping back through my weekly belly shots from the past 32 weeks I can’t understand how that many weeks can fly by in the blink of an eye.
Feeling: Overall I’m still feeling mostly good, and I recognize that I have absolutely nothing to complain about because for the most part, I have had it made and I know that pregnancy is so much worse for some women. Paul is such a supportive partner, too. There is no way I would be doing as well without his cheerleading!
I have started to feel some fatigue creeping back, especially after over-exerting myself, or after spending too much time in the heat. Although, I cannot complain about the summer weather – it’s been extremely mild up until the past few weeks. My rib cage feels like it’s going to explode most days but other than that my body is holding up well. I’ve been working with a chiropractor for a couple of months now and she is helping me to stay lined up and I’m so grateful for that!
I’m also feeling extremely excited to meet this little guy or girl, especially knowing that it’s really right around the corner. We are still in the process of really letting it all set in and it’s funny sometimes, the things that make us look at each other and say “we are really doing this!” Each step we take in the process probably makes it a little more real, and might make us a little bit more excited (and terrified!)
