I passed a milestone a week or so ago! I now weigh more than I think I ever have! It is actually WONDERFUL news, as I tend to loose weight most pregnancies, and really don’t have any to loose. It isn’t fun or healthy to be too sick to gain in pregnancy, and while the babies have always gotten what they needed, it is wonderful for my body that I’m keeping food down this time! I’m presently about 8 pounds ABOVE my pre-pregnancy weight! The past few months morning sickness has become ONLY morning sickness–not all day! Such a blessing.
I’ve been tired and fighting migraines, but am obviously getting nourishment! It is odd to find jumpers that have previously fit fine at 9 months are getting snug.
Baby appears to be growing well, and all reports from the midwife are positive. I’m 31 weeks along.
The new baby isn’t the only one growing. Due to a combination of early potty training and slender children, we’ve never purchased diapers beyond the diaper size 3. With Keegan now weighing more than his older sister Keianna, we recently bought size 4’s for him.
I’ve been tired and slothful, so we’ve been doing great with schooling. Other things aren’t getting done, but the children love school, and teaching/guiding their studies is fairly sedentary on my part, so we’ve probably done more school days this month than ever before! Because Ken so often works 6-7 days a week, Monday-Saturday are all “eligable” as school days here. While we don’t always do 6 days a week, and often do only four, we are as likely to skip a Tuesday as a Saturday. January, however has been odd in that most weeks we’ve done school every day but Sunday. It is a joy to see them delight in learning.
