Hey everyone! It's been awhile since I've hung out here, except for my brief pop-in about the cyst experience, which, by the way, is over now--thank goodness! Thank you to those of you who responded; it was super helpful. My midwives & doc were very reassuring that cysts are normal and come and go on their own all the time. And I was very pleased that mine went away in a couple days.
I just had a great time reading and catching up on how y'all are doing. I LOVE all the photos!!!
Sara, I'm glad to hear you are hanging in there & resting up, healing slowly and surely. Your little ones are adorable!!!
Desert, I loved your super moon pics, and the gorgeous belly pics too! I am so happy for you guys. Sounds like things are going really well. I'm curious to hear others' responses to your sex question. I'm not big enough yet that my belly's really gotten in the way - the main obstacle is my *excruciating* heartburn that comes on strong in any random moment and it is not sexy at ALL! But I'm wishing for you two many fun, comfortable sexy times in the coming months (and years)! ;)
Crystal, I'm sorry to hear that things are still kinda rough out there, but I'm glad to hear that you two had a good conversation about your fight. My therapist always says that it's not conflict that's a problem, but how you deal with it that can become a problem. So being able to process together when you are both calm & able to do so is a really good step. :)
Amanda, I really enjoyed the news article. Thanks so much for sharing, and sorry to hear about your not-so-supportive neighbors. It's their loss - your family sounds amazing, and I always appreciate your wisdom and the stories you share in here.
Brite, I am thinking of you guys! Hang in there just a bit longer, little one! I am sending your family lots of love in this suspenseful time. I have a really good feeling about your upcoming birth, whenever it will be. :)
Dandy! Those are some awesome ultrasound photos! Congratulations, due date buddy!!!! I am so happy that things are going well for you guys. You have inspired me to finally post some photos. Oh yeah, and as an English teacher, I LOVE the comic you posted! Too funny!!! One of my students with two moms was so annoyed with the computer's auto-correct when she was writing a story about her family. It wouldn't let her write "moms'" without giving her a grammar alert. We spent some time trying to teach the computer the truth, but ultimately had to just resolve to ignore it.
AFU, 21 weeks! Yeah! We had our big 20 week ultrasound on Friday. It was so reassuring to see that all the important parts are there and that the baby is healthy, and that there's nothing to worry about at this point! After we had the ultrasound, we spent all day celebrating. A trip to the beach, lots of delicious food, some good exploring and spending time with sweet friends. We are ridiculously excited and happy at this point! Below are some pics from Friday...
This baby already has my nose!
The growin' belly
Take care, everyone! xoxo
