Halfway there

Today was my 20-week checkup. TWENTY. I have no idea where the time has gone this time around. It seems like everything is going by at light speed. The baby is moving and moving and moving and it's so great to feel her. It's truly a blessing that as a woman I get to experience this. As women go, I'm a very, very happy pregnant person. There is an interesting spectrum of pregnant women - I am one of the lucky that just LOVES being pregnant. I'm thrilled, too, that I've kept my weight in check. Granted, I started much higher than I did with Emily, so I have a lot of weight to spare. But I thought I would struggle. But I'm pleasantly surprised. I guess my body just knows what to do.

Now that we know it's a girl, there is so much to do! I feel under-prepared in some respects, but at the same time I've learned what a baby truly needs to survive, so I know I don't need to stress as much about getting everything "ready." We need to remove massive amounts of professionally installed Noah's Ark wallpaper from our guest room to get it ready for painting. Even the light switches are wallpapered. At this point in my pregnancy with Emily, I think I had bought enough clothes for 3 babies and the room was all but ready. This time? I've bought 2 things and done nothing with the room.

We are trying to enjoy our summer (summer? sure doesn't feel like it with constant rain here in the Northwest) and spend some extra-quality time with Emily. She's going through such a tremendous phase right now that is so much FUN. The best part of my day is picking her up from school everyday.


are you showing much more quickly than the 1st time around?
Oh definitely! I should post comparison pics... that means I need to take a pic of me! :)
