This past weekend felt like another milestone. I hit the 18 week mark of my pregnancy, and I can truly say the nausea is mostly gone. The past week has felt the most “normal” of my entire pregnancy. I’ve been able to work, grocery shop, see friends and family and go on fun dates again with Nick. At 18 weeks I am loving: apple juice boxes, Kraft Mac ‘n Cheese, and breakfast egg/sausage/cheese bagel sandwiches Nick has been making for me. I feel like I am constantly eating. If I do not eat, the nausea comes over me like the plague of death so I’m being very disciplined about shoving my face almost every single 45 minutes. ANYthing to avoid that awful nausea! This stage of pregnancy has been sweet. Beginning to see and feel little flutters of our baby has drawn me closer to this little life. The other morning I was singing worship songs in the shower to our baby along with my ipod and became a puddle. It can hear my heartbeat and murmurs of my voice! Let’s just say I couldn’t make it through one song without being completely choked up as I thought about getting to tell my future son or daughter about the grace and mercy of Jesus. I pray there would never be a day in this baby’s life that he or she could not remember Jesus being their Lord and savior, redeemer and sweetest friend. I guess its all beginning to feel a lot more “real” that we’re having a baby. Only 1 more week until we get to find out if we’re having a girl or boy! I can hardly wait.
