Happy Sunday/Monday everyone! I hope that everyone had a great New Year!
My parents were in town this week, so I decided to take the week off from blogging. It was nice to just hang out with them without worrying about writing up posts for the week.
I just wanted to take a minute and get a little personal. You see, I'm 5 1/2 months pregnant with my 5th child. I just had an ultrasound on Friday. Two things were determined (well actually a month ago), they were just confirmed yesterday.
We are having another boy. I should be excited, but I'm not entirely. I have three boys and one girl, so I was really hoping for our last child to be a girl. It's hit me pretty hard and I'm having a hard time with it (like getting depressed).
Next is that I have placenta previa. If you don't know what that is, it means the placenta is covering the birth canal. It has been moved in the past 4 weeks, but it's still low and not completely out of the way, so I get to have another ultrasound in 2 weeks.
With this alone, it's been making life harder than usual. Then the fact that I live in the middle of nowhere and getting use to country life has been hard. I'm just going to be real, I'm struggling with my life. I haven't been happy for awhile.
One thing that makes me happy is this blog, it gives me something to do and look forward to. But lately I haven't gotten really any kind of positive feedback. You all know that since Pinterest, commenting has been going down. Bloggers live off of comments, it is what keeps me going and makes me want to share my ideas. I had a post a couple weeks ago get pinned 1000 times, but with only two comments. So if you like one of my projects (or really any bloggers), I would love it if you took an extra minute to tell me, it really helps a lot!
