Grateful one day early this time...
Getting bigger every day it seems like. I honestly have no complaints right now, the 3rd trimester is usually good to me. No heartburn, swelling, headaches, high blood pressure, roid rage, ha ha . None of it. I just hate bending over a lot & I have one very active little boy in here. I`m also one big mama. I am grateful to still be here, growing & glowing. I have the joy of another surgical delivery to look forward to, but I don`t think there`s any other way and I`m Ok with that.
I`m grateful that my 2 friends who both had their water break at 33 weeks are both doing so well. One is still on hospital bedrest and holding tight to grow a bigger stronger baby girl. The other one had her baby girl after 5 days on hospital bedrest & as she has been through a lot in the past I`m just so glad she`s safely here. Thank God!
- I'm just a mom in the world. A crunchy Catholic mama of 6 trying to make sense of it all and stay positive. 5 boys here & 1 in heaven. One awesome man who I get to grow old with. I help new moms breastfeed. I`m happy. I don`t go to shows or dance clubs every night but I would if I could. Where`s the nanny? When I see her she`s SO fired! One of my boys is super sweet and sensitive, another one is a holy terror. I learn a ton from all of them daily. Like Nigella says, as any parent of small children knows,there comes a point in the day where you can`t go any further without a drink! I love cocktail hour. I`d like nothing more than to be with my family and some good friends surrounded by tropical plants drinking a margarita listening to the Eagles. I don`t care about trendy, I like that grungy 70`s vibe.
