Halfway Done! (20wks)

Today marks the halfway point in my pregnancy! I am excited that I have made it this far with relatively few problems (both my husband and I continually note and comment on how blessed we have been with this pregnancy). It is amazing how much I seem to already be falling in love with our baby, even though he or she is not even 1 pound and is still forming inside of me. I can't even begin to imagine the amazing love that Nick and I are going to have for this child when they come into the world. I am excited and nervous for the birth all at the same time...especially now that it is about 5 months away. I took a halfway picture today to mark the 20 week occasion and can definitely see that I have my "bump" now. I wonder what people think when they see me strolling on campus or in the store. I am young (only 21) so part of me thinks they are judging me so I try and flash my wedding ring as much as possible hehe. In reality though, I don't care what they are thinking because I am very excited to have this baby and know that Nano is going to be loved SO much by all of his/her family when he/she gets here.

I don't remember if I put this is my previous post so I will mention it again. I am going for the "big" ultrasound with Nick and my mom this Thursday and am really excited! I will definitely be posting new pictures of Nano on here after that appointment.

I'm going to get back to homework now. I am done on Friday and can't wait one bit! Only some journals, a meeting with my student teaching instructor, a CHDV graduation party/ceremony, two 2 page papers for an online nutrition class, and a final for my infant/toddler curriculum class and I am DONE! I don't know what I am going to do with all my free time LOL. Actually, I do know I am going to get better at cleaning the house, planning meals, and hanging out with friends more. I am also planning on reading...for pleasure...! :)

Til next time (probably Thursday night),
