I’ve been remiss in blogging faithfully lately. However, I have a pretty good excuse (at least I think so). See, it’s hard to get the creative juices flowing when you’re feeling kind of crummy. To get to the point, I am expecting a baby in the beginning of October and have been suffering the typical nausea etc. that accompanies a pregnancy. So that’s the big news folks! I am glad to report that those yucky symptoms are gradually receding and I anticipate getting my energy back.
The baby is about thirteen weeks and doing well according to the ultrasound I just had. We’ve all had a little adjustment to make in our expectations for the future. While there isn’t a big gap between Annika and the new expected one (three years), having her at 39 kind of felt like the end of the baby era. So yes, I will be a 42 year old new mother! Been done before, right?
Having the ultrasound really solidified the reality. It was fun seeing the little peanut jumping up and down like s/he was on a trampoline. The ultrasound tech said that this baby was likely to be very lively throughout the pregnancy. We are excited and yet aware that there may be more challenges with this pregnancy than with the others. We thank God that all has gone well so far and pray that we will be able to embrace a healthy baby in about six months.
