    Very glad to hear from you. I can well imagine.

    My backdoor neighbor had a baby fall of 2020 and found it very stressful too. At that time if the dad left the hospital, he could not return. They have (6) older kids. She understood, but it made things complicated. She had lots of doctors appointments too, major swelling, and the whole thing was not much fun.

    Here, anything I need is available curbside and of course that is very different from when I had babies long ago. I did not even have the option of a drive up pharmacy, then. More than once I drove around and pounded on the backdoor of the drug store do I did not have to go in.

    We have two 9mos puppies (sisters) and it has been fabulous to be able to run errands with them and never get out of the car. So it has occurred to me many times how easy errands with a baby are now.

    I have kept up with medical and dental, those are about my only trips β€œIn”. But I discovered last month that the genealogy section at the library is empty on Sunday afternoons. I have been going down to use their computer systems and that feels like a good/safe change of scenery.

      It is really stressful and not just the hypervigilance around covid. While I’m vaxxed and boosted, the new strain is scary. There is so much unknown still about long covid, and if babies can get it and how it works…I just want to avoid it the best I can. I am glad that Michael can go to the hospital with me. For awhile there at the beginning women had to give birth alone!!! How traumatic and awful. πŸ™

      Congrats on the puppies! And it’s very cool that your library has a genealogy section. I didn’t know that was a thing.

    This is a really stressful time to be pregnant. I feel for you. I remember many years ago before ultra sounds the dr. told me I was having an enormous baby. I was so scared, but he weighed in at 5lbs 14ozs haha! I will keep you in my prayers for a safe delivery. I can’t wait to hear her name and see her photo. I hope Logan is looking forward to being a big brother.

      Yikes!! Good to know baby was huge lol. I know that the late ultrasound isn’t that accurate so I didn’t panic!!

      Logan is VERY excited. πŸ™‚

    Sending you good luck! I remember being miserable the last few weeks with my daughter. And now with COVID there just must be so much added stress. You look great and I hope you will have an easy delivery and an adorable girl soon!

      It’s funny, I don’t remember being super over it with the first and he was a week late. But this time I am just OVER it. lol
