I've been lurking around here since the beginning of this pregnancy, rarely finding the words to say much . . . our lives have been insane, and I've been feeling shy & overwhelmed. My dad has been going through cancer treatments for a brain tumor recurrence, and we made the tough decision to move into a house with my parents, which meant we had to ready my parents' place for sale (the house they had lived in since I was 4), get it on the market, pack up both houses, and move. We finally made it into the new house the weekend before Thanksgiving, and not a moment too soon--I am currently 38.5 weeks and counting, with an active almost-3-year-old who makes unpacking/organizing a little more complicated.
We're having an HBAC this time around, after requiring a c-section at 37weeks with DD (we had planned a homebirth). Now that I'm past the point at which DD was born with no sign of any complications, I am amazed to realize that this is actually going to HAPPEN--one of these days soon I am going to go into labor and birth this baby in our lovely new home!
Anyway, wanted to step back into the light and re-introduce myself--I've been really enjoying keeping up with everyone else's pregnancies, even though I haven't been much of an active participant around here during the craziness.
