I have also started seeing a bump! That has been so weird and Josh now hears about it constantly! (He is really learning how to word things politically correct). I know it sounds crazy since I'm not showing a whole lot, but I can already tell a difference in my mobility of moving around. I have never had much of a stomach so a little added padding not only looks very different but feels very different! But once again, I know this baby and the entire pregnancy experience will be worth every pound!
I really do try to keep in mind how blessed I am to be experiencing being pregnant even with the occasional discomforts that comes with it. I feel very blessed to have been able to get pregnant because I know everyone doesn't get pregnant easily...or at all. So I try to keep that in mind as more and more of my jeans go on the "can't button" shelf. In addition to that blessing, I've really started thinking this week how lucky I am to be having Josh's baby. I can't wait to see what traits of Josh our baby has! He's such a great husband and person and I know he has always wanted to be a father so I am so happy I am able to make one of his dreams come true - just as he does for me every single day.
He was very great during the 1st trimester when I was so tired all I wanted to do was sleep and really picked up the slack around the house and getting "life" stuff done. Now that I'm in my 2nd trimester (and the weather is warming up) I have more energy so I'm going to try to step it up and be more helpful than I was over the past three months! Plus, I'm getting in that "nesting" phase where I want to work on the house and get it ready to bring baby home! And I know I need to take full advantage of my new found energy because I hear you lose it again in the 3rd trimester. Unfortunately, Josh may long for the days when my top priority was sleeping once I start making his "honey-do" lists. :)
