18 weeks (Not much of a bump yet. Sorry.)
The new pregnancy symptom I'm having is getting hungry in the middle of the night. I of course wake up in the middle of the night to use the restroom (I'm used to that now) but then I have a hard time falling back asleep because my tummy is growling. Last night I had this problem for the second time so at 3am I was on the couch eating a small bowl of Frosted Mini Wheats. I think it's weird. I have never known anyone to do this. I have only seen this in movies (What a Girl Wants is the one the comes to mind). Anyway, I think I'll start eating a snack a few hours before bed to try to prevent this strange activity.
I went to the doctor last Thursday, well the doctor's office (didn't end up seeing the doctor because he was at the hospital doing surgery). Honestly I don't think an appointment every 4 weeks is necessary. I did get to hear our girl's heartbeat again though. I love getting to hear her fast little heartbeat! It assures me that she is in there and is healthy. The nurse checked my weight and blood pressure and I am in good shape too. :) I'm really excited for the 20 week ultra sound in a week and a half! It's always so fun to see her growing, developing, and moving inside me!
It is so amazing and such a miracle that this little girl is growing inside of me! All my life when people have asked what I want to be when I grow up I've always said "I want to be a mom" (My calling is in the primary and on Sunday we filled out questionnaires with the kids that asked what we want to be when we grow up and I found myself putting the same thing... which I will be and forever be starting in June! haha!) What a wonderful gift God has given us to have the power to create life! I am so grateful for this child that God has given to Nick and I!
Oh, and why don't groceries stores have pregnancy parking. I know I'm not that pregnant yet but I'm just saying it might be a good idea especially in the winter when there is snow and ice on the ground.
