my desk sits perfectly in the entryway / wilting peonies make for pretty photos
Progress is slow around these parts and I'm accepting it for what it is. Despite the upheaval of moving house, I feel like this pregnancy has enveloped me in stillness and quiet. It's so similar to Che's pregnancy that I feel almost certain there's a baby boy growing within.
I'm carrying quite big this time around; high and out front my belly is attracting much attention from acquaintances. Over the past week more than ten people have enquired about my due date and they have all been perplexed when I informed them that baby will be born in March (not in the next fortnight, like they presumed). Pregnancy launches you into the public eye, doesn't it?! I have to remind myself that most people are well meaning (if a little ignorant, at times).
It's nice to know that for the next few months, regardless of how big my belly gets, I can spend my days close to home, balancing work and blogging and family life. Despite the onset of the busy season, I'm pretty happy to prioritise rest and quiet. I'll file it under "self-care".
