Here is how I looked almost 2 weeks ago and just when I thought I couldn't get any bigger, I grew some more. I don't know how my belly can stretch so much. It is unbelievable. I am starting to get VERY uncomfortable as this little gal has almost no room in there and likes to wedge herself under my ribs. Let me tell ya, that really hurts! Yesterday I couldn't even sit upright to eat dinner it hurt too much. And did I mention the heartburn and indigestion? Holy cow! But every ailment I feel right now is totally worth the pain as in about 8 1/2 weeks I'll be holding her and looking into her beautiful eyes. This is the most wonderful experience I've ever been blessed with. Our first baby shower is coming up in a little over a week and I am not one who likes to be the center of attention at parties and I feel guilty for receiving gifts so we'll see how that goes. My sister and neice are also coming out for the shower and I can't wait! Matt is getting very excited to meet his little girl and is already talking about how heartbroken he is going to be the first time she brings a boy home. He is going to be one fantastic dad. I am feeling so anxious though, just the thought of not being able to protect her from everything is killing me. How am I going to feel the first time I have to punish her? We had a doctor visit last week and everything is measuring wonderful and on track. I will have another appointment in a month and then will start going every two weeks.

Who would've known that growing a human could be so exhausting? It seems all I want to do these days is sleep and I nap any chance I get. I feel so lazy! This weekend I have done nothing except dishes this morning. I am too tired to do anything. I am no fun to be around. :( I knew pregnancy would make me tired and I've been pretty good up until now. It's the last 2 months and I'm not sure I want it to end. I am loving the special treatment from others! I know, that's pretty selfish but you try walking around with a huge basketball sticking out of your stomach and not being able to get up out of bed without seriously rolling out.
