Update :)

Sorry I haven't been around in awhile! We have been soooo sick. We got the flu and it was awful. We got it just after we celebrated DD's first birthday so someone probably brought a virus to the party Sad and I have had several colds.

But I am feeling a bit better now! I had a midwife appt and it was great. We talked a lot about the emotional side of this pregnancy. Being that it is my second and DD is still so young...and that this pregnancy was unplanned, I have had a little more trouble bonding with this baby and often "forget" I'm pregnant. I have felt guilty about it and worried I won't connect with this babe the same way. She was very supportive Smile BP was 108/58 and baby's heartbeat was in the 150's, very similar to DD so I wonder if I am having another girl???

also, I quit my job and I am officially a SAHM! Actually, I am launching a business so not quite. I am doing maternity, birth, infant, and family videography. I just shot my first birth video. It was very exciting, a home birth turned hospital transfer, which ended in a c-section and a brief NICU stay for the baby. Very overwhelming but mom and babe are doing great now and I can't wait to share this video with them!

hope everyone else is doing well!!

I'm glad you were able to talk about your feelings. Sometimes just talking about it really helps to sort out what you're feeling. Great news about your business. That sounds like a lot of fun - and what a dramatic first shoot!!

Wow, lots going on in your life lately! Sorry to hear you were sick...I had the flu when I was 33 wks along with DS2. It's so very miserable when you are pregnant. Congratulations on quiting your work outside of the home and tons of luck getting your new business running. Smile Sounds like really exciting work too!! Also glad to hear you were able to talk through some feelings with your midwife and that it helped you feel better.
