So I know I'm out of the loop. You all wouldn't believe how busy my life has been (
aside no less). They've finally figured out at work that my time is about to come to an end and they're trying to get every ounce of work out of me they can. I can't really complain though; they've been terrific trying to work things out with "maternity leave" and such...even though I really won't be coming back.
Yep, I'm gonna get to be stay-at-home mommy! Hubs got a nice promotion earlier in the spring and that's taken the edge off the financial concerns. We were in fairly good shape to begin with (cars paid for, 0-balance credit cards and a disgusting low mortgage...because I had lots of equity and bought before
the real estate boom)...but the added $$ in his paycheck will certainly come in handy.
Official due date is just around the corner...July 23...but from the looks of things:
...everyone seems to think I'll go early. It was kind of important to get through this week (apparently completing 36 weeks is a nice fetal developmental milestone...but more importantly, my OB has his one and only summer vacation this week!) and everything is looking on track. I've gained ~22 pounds...and as you can see, it's all out front. The arms are still stick-thin. Good news, though, for getting back into shape afterwards.
Hope everyone here is doing well. Jace has kinda stayed in touch through 30-Love...but I'd love quick updates on how everyone else is doing.
