My apologies that I haven’t updated sooner. Third trimester pregnancy has been crazy and tougher than I imagined. They say the older you are the more difficult it is (I’m 37), but I have no comparison to base that on myself so I have to take other people’s word for it. I’ve also had old back injuries that grew exponentially worse as the baby got bigger and heavier, which meant I had to go to physical therapy for the last few months. It didn’t cure the problem, but at least the therapist could help make the pain more bearable for me.
Unfortunately, I haven’t gotten nearly as much work done on my next book as I’d hoped. On my better days I’ve mostly used that time to get ready for the baby. I set up the nursery which was a lot of work because it was filled with boxes I hadn’t unpacked from my big move this summer, had my baby shower, got my vehicle detailed (it needed the kind of cleaning I couldn’t do at this point) and the husband and I also installed the car seat. I’ve also been obsessed with keeping the house as clean as possible, and there’s been Christmas shopping to do.
I don’t want to bore you all with the minute details of my life, but if you’re interested in how my pregnancy is progressing you can see my regular updates in my Facebook Fan group. On there, I posted a video tour of the baby’s nursery, shared pregnant pics of me, and I’ve gotten into more of the nitty-gritty stuff that some people may or may not want to hear. As a treat, though, here’s a pic of me from two days ago when I was just shy of 39 weeks along.
The Facebook fan group is also the place where I’ll update first after the baby is born because it’s easier and faster to post there and do all other social media when I have more time. I will try to provide more updates on this blog later this month on how things are going and when my next books will be out. Just please bear with me as this is going to be a hectic month.
Wishing everyone happy holidays!
