25 weeks!!! Gettin' closer! it is - my updated photo. 25 weeks and counting....I am 36 1/2 inches around now! My belly button is poking out more and more each week and its getting harder and harder to sleep! UGH! lol - someone told me my sleepless nights now from the big uncomfortable belly and the getting up numerous times to pee and the leg cramps are all God's nice little way of getting me prepared for the sleepless nights to come! You know what...I'd rather sleep now!!! lol Oh well....its all for the wonderful blessing of LIFE. I have an appointment on April Fool's Day...that ought to be fun. We know quite a few people who are pregnant or have been pregnant and I want them all to know that our prayers are with all of you - from those who's child is now in God's arms, to those who didn't necessarily plan this but know it is still a blessing to bring a child into this world and are excited to begin a new chapter in their life and to those who have planned and planned for this like Ryan and I!! I know we are all scared in our own ways and have our fears - but always know that God is right there with us all, comforting us and guiding us.

24 week update!

So...finally...I get my camera back from Ryan so I can get some pictures on here! Ryan was in Mexico City for a week on a missions trip and when he came back he had a ton of pictures to load on here and get sent to everyone. So here I am, 24 weeks along. I had my last appointment 2 weeks ago. I weighed in at 150.6lbs which means I have gained a total of 13lbs so far. My waist is 36 1/4 inches!! I was at 33 1/2 inches just 4 weeks ago!! No wonder my clothes are getting tighter!! hahaha - I really need to go buy some maternity jeans - mine just are not fitting right anymore! The baby's heart rate was about 140 bpm - which is perfect. My next appointment is on April Fool's Day! ha! I will be taking the test to see if I have gestational diabetes. Wish me luck because I would die if I did have it....I need my sweets!!! That would mean I wouldn't be eating dessert at Karen's on Sunday anymore...:( So lets just pray that it doesn't come back that I do have it!

Here are my pictures - enjoy!!! Yes...I am wearing the same shirt as I did 4 weeks ago...its my favorite.
