Well, I've just put my husband on a plane to Iowa. He's being flown out for a job interview and we really hope that means we might be moving soon. I'd really like to know where we're going for my own peace of mind. Pregnancy and uncertainty are not the best bedfellows. Which has made for some fun days lately.. =)
This past week or so has been a bunch of ups and downs for me. Mostly downs. I feel healthier this pregnancy, but much more of a wuss as well. I know I was uncomfortable with Timothy, (not to mention huge and swollen) but I don't remember being this limited in my physical abilities. Of course, I didn't have a toddler needing my to help him with all kinds of things, and I wasn't constantly bending over to pick up toys, books, and all the other stuff that goes with a child. Maybe that's most of it. M house stayed a lot cleaner during my last pregnancy. =)
Lately though, it seems to have gotten worse. I feel like this small person inside me has doubled in size overnight! He's sat so low my whole pregnancy, that I was really enjoying not having feet in my ribs, and a full lung capacity. No more. In the last few days, both of those luxuries have disappeared, and the only comfortable position for any length of time is on my side on the couch with multiple pillows... Sitting is out of the question. Oh well, only 4-6 more weeks... =)
Which brings me to my other pregnancy issue. Hormones. I need to nest, and have become increasingly frustrated by the fact that I CAN'T. I've cleaned most of what there is to clean and organize (except under the kitchen sink, and that required bending over. Not real eager for that), and I really don't feel prepared for this kid. That, of course, is due to the fact that we're still in a one bedroom apartment, Timothy is still sleeping in the crib and we have no place to move. I've been hunting, but what's in our price range around here is downright scary. We're also waiting to find out about this job, because if it comes through, we'll just wait until the baby comes, and move after that. Not that I relish moving halfway across the country with a toddler and a newborn, but there are much worse things... =)
Anyway, please keep us in your thoughts and prayers. John meets everyone and interviews tomorrow. We feel really good about this interview (well, John does, and when I do when I'm not all hormonal), and it would mean really good things for our family and stabilize us sooner than if we stayed here. We're just waiting on the Lord and His plan. We know it's so much better than ours....
