The Beginning

Thursday, August 6, 2009

This is a belly pick around 6-7 weeks pregnant. I had just found out that I was pregnant, and the shock was beginning to settle in! I will post a belly pick at 20 weeks as soon as I take one!

20 weeks

Tuesday, August 4, 2009

Today marks the start of our 20th week. It became so real after we found out that we were having a girl, and now the we are half way there things are getting more and more exciting. After talking with many other women who are currently pregnant or who have been pregnant before, I would have to say that so far I have had an "easy" pregnancy. The only thing I could do without are the wonderful hormonal headaches. My doctor said that they should slack off, but, as of now, they are still in full force. I can honestly say that I have taken more Tylenol in the past two months than I have taken in a lifetime, but, like I said, other than the headaches everything has been great. I am still battling the fatigue, but that is unavoidable.

We have started looking at all the "girly" things that are out there to buy. So much PINK! I think I have FINALLY decided on a bedding set that is yes...PINK and light green pasiley. We also decided on a name: McKinley Grace Varden. She has also started moving a lot. I began feeling just little waves every once in a while, but for the last two days it feels like she is flipping over and over again. I feel a lot better now that I can feel her move. If she is moving then I know she is doing okay, and that is much better than waiting for the next doctors appointment. I know the next few months are going to fly by. Two of my best friends will be getting married, and that means tons of fun parties to attend. I will go back to the doctor next week for my next appointment. We have one more ultrasound, and I am still trying to get the past pictures up on the blog for comparison. That will happen soon...hopefully!

In the meantime, please say a prayer next week. Keith and my brother (Jonathan) will be spending sometime with all our beautiful children in Casa Hogar Elim! I am so jealous that I will not be making this trip, but I am so happy that Keith and JP will be there with them!

Love Wins!
