Baby Bump

I’m already in my 3rd trimester and I can’t believe it! I’ve been feeling and seeing so much growth in my tummy these last few weeks. It’s hard to believe it’s going to get even bigger! Our little girl loves to kick and squirm around especially after I eat sugar, or after her Daddy sings into my belly. We just got back from a mini baby moon celebrating our 13th wedding anniversary. We spent a few days camping in our trailer and relaxing in Palm Springs and it was exactly what we needed. We also got some things for our baby while we were out of town and we’re finally about to get started with our baby renovations. Daniel has some really cute ideas for a corner of our bedroom and I can’t wait to see it all done. It’s such an exciting time right now for our families. My sister Katyanne is pregnant and due any day now, my sister in law Katie is due in May, and our baby girl will be here in June! Life is so beautiful and I’m forever thankful.


23 Weeks Pregnant

I love being pregnant! The bigger my belly gets the more excited and eager I get to meet our beautiful baby girl. My pregnancy journey has not been perfect of course, but I will say that I have felt so much of God’s grace during these last 23 weeks. I’ve been fortunate to not have to go through any morning sickness or nausea at all during my pregnancy. I feel healthy, my baby is healthy, and I’ve been so happy! I have had moments in the last couple weeks where fear and uncertainty have crept in because of certain symptoms I was experiencing, but God’s peace came to the rescue every time. My baby girl belongs to Him and her life is in His hands. It’s been so fun feeling her move around so much! I’ve really felt her moving a lot more in these last couple weeks and I love it. On another note, I’ve never seen the number on a scale so high and I couldn’t be more thrilled haha! I thought that gaining weight and seeing my body change would really effect me negatively but my gratitude outweighs every thought. I just can’t help but feel so thankful. In addition, Dan has been such an amazing support to me. He’s been so caring and nurturing, he’s been at every doctor visit, he’s always making sure my needs are met, and always aware and ready to help me with normal things that have now turned into an event, like tying my shoes 😆. It’s not as easy to bend over the same way and I know it’s only going to get more interesting. He’s dealt with my constant tossing and turning in bed, adjusting to the adventure of me trying to figure out a pregnancy pillow, my food needs (not cravings 😉), and my random moments of crying for simply no reason at all. He’s been my superman for sure! I’m still feeling so much gratitude and at times still can’t believe this is real! This pregnancy has been a beautiful experience for us and I can’t thank God enough for his grace.
