: I agree, time is flying! I was thinking earlier today about how this sweet babe of mine is due three months from this Thursday! Oh goodness, this pregnancy is feeling more real than ever. Like you mentioned, it took a long time for me to settle into this pregnacy, especially after the initial complications I was having. My pregnancy has been smooth and uncomplicated so far this second half and I am so very grateful! Sorry to hear about your varicose veins. I have them too. They have worsened with every pregnancy. I am pretty active, but it doesn't seem to make a difference. Mine don't hurt or anything, but get itchy and I worry that they won't go back all of the way! I have a vein in the back of my leg that didn't return to normal after my last pregnancy...oh well! I just have to surrender to the veins and be thankful all is going well with baby
! Your daughter's nickname and interaction with your babe in womb is so sweet!
I have been feeling really energetic as of late. I went into full nesting mode..which usually doesn't happen until the last month of pregnancy for me! I think I know that the holiday season is busy and baby is due soon after that, so nest away now! I rearranged several rooms and cleaned/organized all closets and whatnot, among other things. I even finished holiday shopping so that I can relax more as that time of year rolls around!
My kids are very excited about baby and the three of them have been having baby name discussions and making name lists. Pretty darn cute! We've been working away at homeschool and that has been going really well, which is great because we'll all take a lengthy school break when baby comes. We we do a combination of waldorf inspired schooling and unschooling, so we'll lean toward the unschooling side come February! Other than a growing baby and belly, not much else to report!

I reached the "can no longer run more than thirty seconds at a time without feeling like I have to pee" milestone yesterday...bring on the hiking! No more runs until after this babe is in my arms!
I hope all of you ladies are doing well!!
