This is the last catch up post – everything beyond this one will be in real time.
Again, thanks so much for all the support and congrats. We could not say thank you enough for the support that you have given us and the prayers that were prayed for us in order for us to get to this point.
I can say that because of the minimal amount of symptoms, life has been fairly normal.
This past weekend we went to concerts, birthday parties – you know the usual in my book.
It’s funny because as its starting to sink in, I notice my husband looking for the “expectant mothers” parking spaces. I think he has used “my pregnant wife” as an excuse for everything… more than I have. Its funny because even my friends have used it and I haven’t. When we were out at dinner over the weekend, they said “We have a pregnant woman with us that needs to eat now!” in order for us to get our table faster. It definitely worked too. I am so ashamed.
In my book, I am pregnant. Not handicap. LOL
