Yes, I'm pulling out the 1/2. I'm like a little kid who wants to get their birthday exactly right.
It's definitely time for a Baby-Lash update. Everything is going really well. I feel better and better everyday, and it helps now that Jason is back home. I have him here for three more weeks before he's off to Ft. Worth for a month. Glamorous life, I know. My belly's starting to get a little bit bigger, and safety pins have become my friend. My regular clothes are still fitting, but my work pants are a little tight in the waist. The safety pins are holding it all together right now. Again, what a glamorous life. By the way, I must apologize for the pictures of me with no makeup and in my workout clothes. For some reason, I only think to take belly pictures after a workout.
I must say that this pregnancy thing is starting to grow (pun intented) on me. This is probably the most peaceful and calm I have felt in my entire life. It's funny how that calmness is so beautifully juxtaposed against the stress of my day to day life--being away from the comforts of home, stressful job, husband away... I guess I feel like this was just meant to be. This is God's plan and I'm learning not to fight it. The one quote that I have posted everywhere in my life (at work, at home, tattooed on my arm...not really) is something that I found the day after I found out I was pregnant, and it is just so beautiful.
Wherever you are, the world will rise up to meet you.
For me, this is really powerful and infinitely true. We are always given the tools, the situations, and the people we need to make it through anything. That is peace.
Totally off the subject, but I need some solicited advice. What prenatal vitamins did you all take during pregnancy? All the brands I have tried make me puke. So much for peace.
