This pregnancy has been significantly different from the others. First, I'm sure, because of oils. Second, because I was so much more clearly focused on Faith. And Third... because of our choice of lifestyle.
Some of the highlights (which I so name only because they are the things that stand out the most, not necessarily because all of them were super positive):
-I didn't feel baby move much at all until right around twenty weeks! (Super late compared to the preceding pregnancies.)
-Jessie ended up mostly unemployed through the majority of this pregnancy.
-He decided to quit smoking.
-My children caught lice and we ended up having it for months. I attribute that, in large part, to catching it again after being free of the ghastly buggers for less than two weeks AND the difficulties inherent in the way we choose to live.
-I took a two-night, one-day, time-out in our camping van.
-My Uncle Matt killed himself (January 2, 2016).
-We took our first 'staycation'... the reason for it was so battle the lice bugs... we simply do not produce enough electricity in the winter to use a blow dryer on three girls' heads!
-When baby started moving so I could feel him regularly, I felt frequent movements all over the place.
