Lucky is the word I would use to describe 'My Pregnancy'

Growing up, I have always imagined that when I was
to become pregnant, that it would be really tough.
And when I say 'Tough', I mean having to deal with...

Constant Nausea
Running to the Bathroom {what seems like} every 15 min
Aches and Pains
Breast Soreness
Stretch Marks
Shortness of Breathe
Gaining Alot of Weight
Lack of sleep
Heart Burn
And of course the worry of my child being Healthy

I'm sure there are plenty more Tough Things
that happen while women are pregnant.
Lucky for me, I have barely even had to
deal with any of these things.

In the beginning,
Yes. I was Moody for a couple days
Yes. I had Breast Soreness for a few weeks
Yes. I woke up 3-4 times a night to use the bathroom
And Yes. I worried about the Health of our child
But nothing else.

By the 2nd Trimester,
No... {ok maybe a little} ...moodiness
No breast soreness
No running to the bathroom
But unfortunately, Yes, there did appear stretch marks!
I am alot more careful with lotioning now lol..

I am now in my 3rd Trimester -YIKES-
I am becoming more and more short of breathe
I have started to Waddle a bit...hehe
The only Aches and Pains I am
having to endure are the bones around my
hips and pelvic region.
They have started to spread to make room for the baby to come
And, I am finding it more difficult to find a
comfy position to sit and sleep in.

Although all of these things are happening,
They are by no means Intense.
Like I said...Lucky
I have truly been blessed
I thank God every night that I've had
a Healthy and Easy pregnancy so far.
Now all I'm asking for is that it can finish nice and easy ;)

Now for the Awesome part of Pregnancy...

Feeling the baby move is by far the Best Thing Ever!
At first there were just little kicks every once and a while
Now, I feel it's bum, head, feet, hands, and back
moving all over the place
I love when it stretches. Opposite sides of my tummy will expand
and looks and feels super neat!
I can even feel around and find where it is if I press hard enough

Maikal and I were talking the other day
and discussed what we would do if
we were in each others bodies for a day.
My thoughts of course would be that
I would want to know what it's like
to Pee standing up haha
But what he said was sooo cute...
He said that he would just sit and feel the baby move
all day long
He always wants to know when he/she is kicking
so that he can feel it :)
In fact, sometimes, when he's away at school all day...
then comes home, he will just start talking
and the baby will start kicking and playing around.
I love that our baby can already recognize his/her Daddy's voice

Now that my belly is getting bigger
it is pushing my belly button further and further out!
Here is a picture of how it looks.
Kinda weird looking..


  1. too cute britt! :)
    I can't believe how fast it is going by

  2. you're telling me! Im down to the single digits!
