I’ve gotten a few inquiries about my well-being on account of the fact that I haven’t been posting.  So let’s get the most important bit out of the way – yes, I’m okay.  Yes, I’m still pregnant.

I’ve had an upper respiratory infection and there’s also been Passover taking up my time, so I haven’t been online much.  There’s also the fact that there’s really nothing to say – things are pretty much status quo.  Still on insulin, still not keeping food down.   Still getting IV fluids and medications.    Now also have carpal tunnel syndrome (well, I’ve had CTS since I was 15, but it’s been excruciating in the last month or two),  and, you know various other irritating things.  But I’m still pregnant.  I now get weekly NSTs and weekly BPPs.    Bed Rest, Shmed Rest, right?

People keep telling me that I’m in the “home stretch”, like that’s supposed to make me feel better.  It doesn’t.  I know that makes me a bitter old hag, but it doesn’t make me feel better.  I don’t care if  I’m due in two months or two days or two hours – until it’s OVER and the baby is on the OUTSIDE, it’s still not any fun.  I will be happy when this pregnancy is behind me.  And yes, I do still fully accept the title of bitter old hag.

Honestly can’t think of much else to say.
