I guess I didn't know that this whole pregnancy thing was going to take over my life the way it has. I mean, obviously I knew my life was going to change, but I thought I'd still have lots of things to talk about other than the little stowaway holding me hostage.
But honestly, it's hard to think of anything else lately. My body is not mine anymore, my stomach continues to grow, and I'm not in control of very much. I finally decided to take a picture this weekend after a stranger asked when I was due. I figured I must look pregnant enough that I don't just look fat anymore. I sent my sister the picture first and she said that I definitely look pregnant.
So far, I've only gained 1 pound. I had gained 3, but then I lost 2 so I'm back to 1. Some people have asked whether that's ok considering I'm already halfway through the pregnancy. My doctor has said that it's fine that I haven't gained weight because I started with too much weight as it was. My body is well equipped to handle the baby and the baby is growing right on schedule. Last week at our 20 week scan, the baby was 12 ounces which was right where it should be.
And let me tell you, that baby was cute. If you saw my instagram, you saw that I thought maybe the baby was starting to get nervous about his/her parents. I mean, it can hear our voices now... and it probably thinks we're prettty crazy.

I CAN GO TO PARIS!!!!!!!!!!!!
