Last night, I was laying in bed trying to sleep. My mind was racing about all sorts of things, like it usually does if I don't read before turning off the light. Cory was asleep beside me (already!) and the dog was snoring on the floor.
Then... all of a sudden, the baby decides it's circus time... not bed time! Holy acrobatics, batman! I laid there and literally laughed out loud at how crazy the movements were. It wasn't just a little bump here and there. It was like cartwheels and jumping jacks!
I can't believe Cory didn't wake up! I'm pretty sure the whole bed was shaking with my laughter!!
Anyway, once the excitement died down... I started thinking again. Except this time, I was thinking... Holy Crap... that's a BABY INSIDE ME... MOVING!
And... I only have 4 months until I have a baby in my arms!!
And... sometimes baby's come early! It could be less than 4 months!
And... I don't have ANYTHING ready!
But then I also thought... WOW. What a blessing! I'm a mom. Right now... I am a mom. No matter that it is still growing inside of me... that baby is there and no matter what happens... I'll always be a mom. It's just incredible! I guess I haven't really let it sink in. (I think it's still sinking in).
So... here I am at 23.5 weeks.
It's funny because when I look down at myself, I don't feel very big. However, when I see a picture of myself... I feel like I look huge! But it is what it is! And I am trying really hard to eat good (since my last appointment)... and I'm praying that all continues to go well!
Next appointment... Oct. 28th. Then I'll only have 3 months left! AHH! :)
