We're still preggers and waiting for the little one to arrive. Unfortunately most signs point to him being late, says my doc. I am done with being so heavy in the current heat, it is really exhausting by now and there is so little room for him left in me.
So I feel I know what you're going through. The reason for your stress is a very good one, congrats on the marriage conversion. But I hope you get more rest soon.
