The term is over!


 I am a bit surprised (and proud) that I got A's in all 4 classes this term. The last time I attempted this math class (years ago), I got a C+. That should tell you something. haha!

With the move and the pregnancy and the family going bonkers, it has been a very busy 4 months. We are looking forward to settling into a new normal soon. That new normal though ...

As of this post, I'm 32 weeks and 4 days pregnant and I'm having some issues with preterm labor. Not good. I've been told I need to take it very easy, no heavy lifting (sorry Toddler, you're out of luck) and not stress over things. Sure. I'll try that. I am not, however, on strict bed rest.


I have had 2 doses of steroids to help baby's lungs develop, just in case he decides to show up soon. And I've been given a priesthood blessing which was very comforting about that "coming soon" possibility.

The kids are handling all of this well, fortunately. I've rescheduled as many appointments as I can, though I did have to go to two today, one for Kiddo at school and one for the second steroid shot. The contractions picked up on the way home from the hospital, so I'm going to go rest and cuddle my kids for a bit before bedtime.

The house still has boxes everywhere, and it looks like it may stay that way for a while yet. But at the same time, it's cleaner than our apartment was, so I'm taking that as a win.

The kids get out of school on Thursday, and I'm very glad. The Rock will be taking VOD to the bus for the duration of the pregnancy, which also makes me glad. And they have both been much more helpful lately, for which I can only be grateful.

But what I'm most grateful about *right this second* is that finals are over and I don't have to drive to school or worry about another quiz, paper, or test.

Not until next summer anyway.
