Today, I am 19 weeks. Wow!
A couple weeks ago, I thought, “Oh no, that’s 1/2 way there and I’m not ready yet.”
Today I’m thinking, “Man! When I was 5 weeks and could barely keep my eyes open I couldn’t even imagine being this far along.”
Lots of times it still doesn’t seem real to me. I’ve prayed, cried, wished, dreamed, and argued for a baby for so many years and it’s truly a big miracle that God answered my prayer.
I’m starting to feel some stronger bumps. I’ve felt flutters for a few weeks–a tiny tiny tickle.
Besides feeling tired, I’m mostly feeling fine. Thankfully I’m not as tired as I was the first several weeks. These are my best friend–although I use a brand I found at the health food store. My chiropractor suggested them to me one of those early weeks when I was sick, exhausted, and miserable. They really seem to help!
I get a little nausea now and then but it’s nothing too bad.
I’ve been doing a LOT of reading because when my energy is gone that’s about all I can do. If you check out my Pinterest board of books I’ve read in 2013, you’ll see just how much reading!
I’m so thankful that James is a big boy and can help me as well as take care of himself.
I go to a midwife appointment tomorrow and hopefully she’ll schedule my big ultrasound!
