We are 19 weeks and 3 days today! It's hard to believe that this pregnancy is almost halfway over. My stomach is definitely growing. It's weird because it seems like at the end of the day my stomach is HUGE and I think things like, "Are we sure there's just one baby in there?" or "Oh-my-goodness…if I'm this big already, I am going to be GIGANTIC by 36 weeks!" Then I will wake up in the morning (or on one of my frequent trips to the potty in the middle of the night) and look at my belly in the mirror and it looks normal. It looks pregnant but there's just a little pooch instead of half of a basketball protruding from my gut. I know that your digestive system slows way down when you're pregnant so a lot of the bigness is from bloating I guess. Here's a picture at 19 weeks.
Don't you just love the Summer Olympics? I have been so tired every morning from staying up late watching them (side note: late to me is anytime after 10:00 PM)! Michael Phelps is killing it and I love watching him because he is so genuinely excited, hard working, and doesn't come across as conceited. I love it when humble people do really well! And Shawn Johnson from the US Girls Gymnastic team is my favorite little cutie! When Collin and I are watching the games and she comes on, I am always making comments like, "She's so adorable…I just want to squeeze her!" Ha! I'm not normally a huge TV watcher but I really enjoy the summer Olympics. Hope everyone has a great weekend. Only 3 days until we find out what Baby Day is!
