Bad Blogger - 9 weeks along

I have multiple posts going in my head, but between feeling naseaus and having trouble with our internet, blogging keeps getting bumped to the bottom of the list.

I'm looking forward to hitting that 12-14 point of this pregnancy, which is when my "green" feeling usually fades considerably. In the meantime I'm working to maintain the balance between 1)forgiving myself for not being very "productive" and 2)embracing slugdom. It's a fine line!

Things seem to be going swimmingly with the wee babe. I've had some new aches and pains this go 'round, but I think I just need to get to the chiropractor. I had my first pre-natal today with a dear friend of mine who is now a CPM who can legally practice in the state of Missouri. I can't express how meaningful that is, after all the years that we (the team of Missouri consumers and midwives) worked to legalize midwives here. It is sweet, to say the least.

Glad you are back. I've missed you.

I'm so excited for you! Not just for the new sweetie, but for getting to use a legal midwife, I got all choked up reading that! Blog when you can, I love the updates, but go ahead and be as slug-like as you need. :-)

Laurel- Yes, it's a fine line and I struggle with the same two (forgiving/enbracing) for different reasons! How sweet that you have a worthwhile reason as you grow a baby!
Blessings!
