Baby Bump and a Little About Pregnancy

Here's my 15, almost 16 week baby bump! It's definitely getting bigger.
So far, I have loved being pregnant. Other than a lot of fatigue, it's been a fairly easy pregnancy. Here are a few things that I love about pregnancy and a few things that I could do without.

Love It
1. Knowing my belly is sticking out and totally not caring
2. Wearing stretchy pants that don't ever feel too tight
3. Feeling those first little flutters (I can't wait to feel kicks and see movement!)
4. Having an excuse to take a nap everyday and going to bed at 8:00 without feeling guilty
5. Finally having a reason to browse the baby section at Target
6. Seeing Kevin's face light up when he touches or looks at my baby bump (He loves my pregnant belly and that makes me feel so beautiful.)
7. Knowing there is life growing inside of me
8. The pregnancy glow
9. Talking about baby names with Kevin
10. Knowing my baby is with me wherever I go

Could Do Without It
1.Getting car sickness very easily
2. Not being able to sleep at night because of constant congestion (Apparently pregnant women frequently suffer from stuffy noses.)
3. Always having to pee (especially in the middle of the night)
4. Constantly worrying about the baby and having very bizarre dreams that something is wrong
5. Being incredibly sensitive to strong smells

One More Week!!

One week from today I will be waking up in my grandfather's house and will get to spend an entire week with my parents, brother, sister, and other family members! I am sooooo excited. Here are a few things I am most looking forward to this Christmas.

1. Having my mom see and feel my baby bump
2. Making homemade cinnamon rolls on Christmas morning
3. Laying around all week, watching Christmas movies, and doing a whole lot of nothing
4. Seeing family members I haven't seen in 2 years
5. Watching everyone open the Christmas gifts Kevin and I have bought them
6. Spending my first Christmas with Kevin as a married couple
7. Eating lots of yummy food on Christmas day
8. Watching and laughing at old home movies like we do every Christmas

Just one more week! Merry Christmas everybody! :)
