Preggers Update

For those of you wondering how my pregnancy is going...here's the latest:

I am now in week 13, but as I entered week 12, I started to feel so much better! How thankful I was for that, because that was the week of our move and I did not have a choice to pack, move, & clean! So God was very good to me, especially that week. So overall, I am feeling pretty good each day! On Saturday, Andrew & I walked over 2 miles and I didn't feel like dying! that was a big milestone.

Now this past Monday I had one of the worst days I have had in a while! So I guess it shows it can still come back and bite ya! Mondays have been the hardest days for me, I guess I am partying too hard on the weekends and it catches up to me. :) On Sunday afternoon we had to go finish deep-cleaning our apt. I was literally on my hands & knees for a couple of hours cleaning, so that might have pushed me over the edge.

One other thing that has surprised me during pregnancy is my messed-up sleep patterns. I frequently find myself awake from 1-3 am or 4-6 am. Now I have heard that this is God's way of preparing for you for being up at all hours with an infant - and I think that is great - I just did not expect it to start in month TWO of my pregnancy! So that's kind of a bummer that I am not getting good sleep most nights, but hey - I guess I'm ready for anything!
All in all, I am starting to feel much better and am hopefully passed most of the yuckiness of the first tri and I am so thankful for that!
So, there's really not much to show here - but here is the little belly I have started!
Here's my 1st prediction - that it's a girl - because I am just kind of getting - splat - all around my midde and not the nice neat little bubble-shape that boys seem to bring. But we have to wait until September to find out - I CAN"T wait!!
