Jon wasn't able to go to the BIG "gender reveal" ultrasound with me. (He couldn't get the day off.) When I walked through the door of our apartment, after the appointment, his words were: "Look at your face! You look like you just won an award!" Indeed, I did win an award. God's award to me is this little one that's doing flippies in my tummy as I type. She is SO loved, and we haven't even met her yet.

As of late, my pregnancy symptoms include heartburn (I doubt it'll go away anytime soon), some sleeplessness, increased sensitivity to heat (I used to be able to tolerate high temperatures pretty well, but now I can't stand feeling hot!), stuffy nose, aching in the lower half of my body, fatigue, MAJOR increase in appetite, etc.
Pregnancy is a trip! It turns your world upside down. It does feel overwhelming some days, but I have God (Who keeps me levelheaded,) my husband (who is very loving and understanding when he notices I'm beginning to feel overwhelmed) and my family and friends. Some days are much more tough than others, but I feel ultra blessed to be in the position I'm in, and I know that every single ache, pain, and frustration will be small beans when compared to holding my baby girl in my arms.
