Oops, it’s been awhile

Sorry about that team!  I seem to have been radio silent for a super long time.  I am still here, don’t fret.

(Was anyone fretting?  I’m not so sure…)

Today I’m 24 weeks, 1 day pregnant.  2-4!  It feels 100% fantastic, I can’t lie. 

So, where have I been?  Well I planned this great “boy or girl” post for after my 20 week ultrasound, and then the baby was a total stinker and refused to show us the goods.  Thankfully the next week we had a repeat (my doctor took pity on me since the wee one was so uncooperative) and we found out at that appt.  Are you ready for it?  It’s a GIRL!!!!  I really didn’t care one way or the other, but it’s so much fun to know.  My husband tucks me in every night and he’s taken to saying “goodnight ladies” as he closes the door and it makes my heart sing every time.  

We’ve been super busy with just life.  We are in the process of buying a house, which in the DC area pretty much means saying goodbye to every dollar you have.  I am really excited to get out of our 1 bedroom rental apt, even if it means we have to leave the city proper.  For the last three years we’ve put off buying “until we got pregnant” so that we could enjoy this city and I’m really glad we did.  Yes, it’s stressful to be pregnant and house shopping, but infertility would have been so much worse knowing we raced into a suburban house and then the baby didn’t follow.  We’ve lived up our urban-double-income-no-kids lifestyle to the max and I can’t say I have a single regret heading into parenthood. Being settled in a house feels like just the perfect thing, I can not wait to move in.

I love being pregnant, that’s the short of it.  Perhaps I’m in the sweet spot of the 2nd trimester, but I honestly have no complaints.  Stay tuned to see if this changes. But maybe, just maybe, on this one thing, I got lucky.  I will take it.  I am so thankful every damn day I get to walk down this path.  

I hope every single one of you still waiting will be right behind me.
