Check.. Check.. Is this Thing On?

Hey Humble Readers...

Are you still out there? 

I know it's been a heck of a long time.  Two weeks since my last post. 

I wish I could say it's because my computer had died, or that we had crappy internet service.  But nope, it's just been plain old exhaustion.  The last two weeks of work just about killed me.  I was falling asleep on my lunch breaks.  I barely had the energy to get to work and to my doctor's appointments... let alone spending time online.  My poor Beloved has put up with a groggy hobbit-wife, and has hardly anything homecooked for days and days. 

I'm sorry I haven't been around.  Now that I'm done working, I'm hoping that I will see a bit of an increase in my energy levels again.  I slept almost all morning today, and I'm actually feeling a bit more human. 

Stories that need telling...

The GD GD: getting better, but it's taking a lot of insulin to do it.  My before meal sugar levels are pretty good (except for breakfast, although it's getting better too), and most days I'm doing pretty good with it.  I've had very few meltdowns about it lately.  My stomach is showing a lot of not so pretty bruising from the needles, but it's the easiest place for me to inject. 

The Nursery:  still in progress.  We now have all the decor bits I ordered from Esty, and half the furniture that needs to be painted is at my MIL's house waiting to be sanded and refreshed. 

The Ultrasound:  Got a good peak at him/her today.  I'll post the pics tomorrow.  Got to see little waving hands and it looks like the Halfling has my nose (poor kid!).  He/She is head down, facing to the right.  His/Her hands were in the way so we didn't get a lot of really good pics, but there's one pretty good one.

Pregnancy in general:  not too bad.  Other than tired-ness, things seem to be going okay.  I'll be doing my week 32 update tomorrow sometime.  Tomorrow we have our tour at the hospital, and we start prenatal classes on the 13th. 

I hope you all are well.  It will take me some time to catch up, but I wanted you all to know I'm alive up here on the flatland. 


  1. HI! So glad for you that mat leave has started. I can't wait until mine starts and it's ages away!!
    I get the exhaustion too-and I'm sure the GD doesn't help with that either. Glad you now have a chance to rest and the GD is improving. I'm sure your beloved understands and I'm sure you'll get cooking again now you're home! Take care :)

  2. YAY! You're back! I've missed you!

  3. How is it that you get to take mat leave so early? I hope you can start to feel more rested! I can't wait for more updates :)

  4. I was wondering where you were and how you were doing! Thanks for the update. Enjoy your mat leave and getting some rest!

  5. glad to hear you are OK and just tired... boxes are still sitting at my house waiting for an address and instructions, so let me know. Headed out of town Fri-Mon though.

  6. Welcome back! I can't wait to see the pic tomorrow :)

  7. Welcome back! Can't wait to see the pic tomorrow :)


Hobbits are social creatures, and love hearing from friends old and new. Pull up a comfy chair and let's get to know one another.
