Anthems

OK, you know it's bad when your husband says "hey, you haven't posted on your blog in a long time"!!

I have no excuse. I sit down to write something and other things just creep up and I never get back here.

So, to update, all is good here! I passed my 3 hour glucose test, so, no gestational diabetes! I lost another 2 pounds, but, I think the tide is beginning to turn on that and I expect to be up a couple of pounds at next week's OB appointment. Speaking of next week, I officially enter the third trimester on Tuesday!!! Holy cow - how the heck did that happen???

Work is really, really busy, so I don't have time to write a lot. But, I've had this song going through my head for weeks now. I guess, for me, it's my little "pregnant after years of infertility hell" anthem, so, I thought I'd share it.

I Made it Through the Rain
Barry Manilow

We dreamers have our ways
Of facing rainy days
And somehow we survive

We keep the feelings warm
Protect them from the storm
Until our time arrives

Then one day the sun appears
And we come shining through those lonely years

I made it through the rain
I kept my world protected
I made it through the rain
I kept my point of view
I made it through the rain
And found myself respected
By the others who
Got rained on too
And made it through

When friends are hard to find
And life seems so unkind
Sometimes you feel so afraid

Just aim beyond the clouds
And rise above the crowds
And start your own parade

'Cause when I chased my fears away
That's when I knew that I could finally say

I made it through the rain
I kept my world protected
I made it through the rain
I kept my point of view
I made it through the rain
And found myself respected
By the others who
Got rained on too
And made it through

So, do you have an anthem for something that has happened or is happening in your life?

Hooray for no gestational diabetes! I ate an extra bowl of ice cream the day I passed.

RE anthems... I have a "song to sing while miscarrying" anthem but it is way to depressing to post here.

LOVE that song! And how appropriate, too!

Very good about the glucose test. I'm a little worried about that one, as I have a major sweet tooth. So we'll see.

So, you're jealous of my weight gain, and I'm jealous of your weight loss! Grass is always grener, right?!

Glad things ae going so well!

I can't even say how every time I read a new entry in your blog, how it brings me to happy tears for you.
I've had a lot of "anthems" over the years... "Born to Run" to get me through college because I never wanted to live that ivory tower life... I'll be damned if I can remember a single other one though.
