back in Dublin

Once again, sorry for the lack of posts; I’ve been busy. However, the fun, shopping, and good American food eventually had to come to an end and I’m now back in Dublin. Flying at almost 22 weeks pregnant was uncomfortable, flying at almost 25 weeks was miserable, the thought of flying again at 34ish weeks. EEEEEEKKKKK! Of course it didn’t help that I was flying on one of my least favorite airlines, but it was the only carrier in which I could get a ticket from point A to point B for under $850, barely.

During the next week or so, I’ll post the highlights, and lowlights, of the trip. Hope everyone is doing well and I’m looking forward to catching up on all of your blogs!

PS- Though I was able to avoid “shooting up” during the flight on the way to the U.S., it was unavoidable on the way back to Ireland. Nothing like trying to inject 1ml of heparin into bruised, swollen, sore thighs (more on the location change later), in a tiny lavatory, in turbulence, at 30,000 feet. Good times.


  1. Yikes, that sounds scary. Glad to hear you had a great time!

  2. Oh. My. Goodness. That entire injection (on the plane, in the bathroom) thing just sounds... awful. True misery. I'm so sorry!

  3. It's Friday, and that means that the Two Month Blogiversary of the Weekly State Department Blog Roundup is up - and you're on it!

    Here is the link:

  4. ow... I was lucky to not have to fly much while pregnant, definitely not in the later months. Don't know what to say... but send you lots of sympathy and virtual (((hugs)))

  5. Shooting up in the loo sounds yuck. Good to have you back.
