In a week of hard news stories and political uncertainties, I’m popping in here to share something a little sweeter.
We’re about 5 weeks (give or take!) away from welcoming the newest addition to our family – a baby boy!
My pregnancy has been fairly easy so far – a little nausea, a little morning sickness (crazy how fast you get de-sensitized to throwing up!), a lot of naps and way more Chipotle than I care to admit. These last few weeks have been harder physically with aches and pains, but I’m fortunate to have had a largely ‘normal’ experience so far. The doctors are watching my amniotic fluid levels these last few weeks (they are higher than normal), so that’s a little bit of a worry, but will hopefully turn out just fine.
I’ve learned that working onsite for events and meetings is WAY harder when you’re pregnant – thanks baby boy for hanging in there with me! Nothing like some early contractions and swollen feet to force me to take it easier.
I can’t promise that I’ll be a regular blogger again – who else out there has high blogging aspirations but finds real life always gets in the way?! But I’m hopeful that snuggling with a sweet baby over the next few cold months of winter might inspire some fun pictures or at least a few cozy soup recipes to share in this space!
I’ll be back soon with some pictures of the little guy’s nursery. Creating spaces for little ones is so fun.
