Thirty-six weeks… I can’t believe we are on our last month. It is almost over, some people say their pregnancy has flown by, I can’t say that. The past eight months has been filled with ups, downs, highs lows and a full range of emotions. The intense fear of losing another pregnancy gripped me with fear up until 24ish weeks… I still have frequent fears that something will happen. But thankfully it has lessened over the past couple of months. I have enjoyed my pregnancy but I am so excited to meet our little baby girl. A part of me wants to meet her sooner rather than later, to have her safely in our arms, but another part of me wants her to stay as long as possible. Part of it is the craziness of the holidays I HAVE SO MUCH TO DO!! haha So many emotions! ughhh!
On a lighter note, it’s my 10 year high school reunion last night. It was very small and ended up being mostly my group of friends but we had so much fun.
