6 Months and Counting...

First off- Thank you to everyone who had such kind words about my last post. I was so nervous for everything to change and your sweet remarks meant alot. It's nice to know that people care... Dustin has really enjoyed his time up at post! He has done well in PT, and has enjoyed learning about the field of corrections. He took corrections classes in college and loved it, so this is right up his alley! School has been great for me. I love the people, learning, and actually being on a schedule for the first time in a long time!


I hit my 6 month mark a week ago from today. (I still don't have a charger for my camera battery so I am a little late posting pics...) This pregnancy has gone by so fast. Our little one is still as healthy as ever. I was able to get another ultrasound about a week ago, and she was squirming around and kicking like crazy. It was so cute... she was also sucking, and you could see her little mouth moving!

My pregnancy thus far...
*She is now about 13 inches long. (according to babycenter.com)
*Dustin and I played music for her the other night, and she responded immediately.
*My belly has really grown during this past week... along with the "girls" that have decided to "fill up" a little bit earlier than expected...I must say, weirdest part of being pregnant...
*I have had a cheeseburger almost every day this past week! Mmmm. Appetite is defnitely healthy.
*I ordered a belly belt for a little more support while I am at the hospital. This growing belly is killing my back! I can't wait to try it out. I hear they're amazing.
*Tummy butter has become a part of my daily routine. I haven't got a stretch mark yet...and I am hoping to prevent any in the future.
*I am still a little tired, but nothing I can't handle.

Only 2 months and 3 weeks til our due date! I am so excited I can hardly sleep at night. She is already so loved...
