22.5 Weeks

Here I am at 22.5 weeks pregnant.  (Excuse Obama jabbering on in the background.)  Several people have remarked in the past couple of days how much my tummy seems to have grown, and I completely agree.  There is definitely and absolutely no hiding that I am pregnant now.

This past week or so has been great, pregnancy-wise.  It is the least anxious I've been since I found out I was knocked up, in early December.  I rented from a website a fetal heart monitor, so every morning and night I can find Lil' A's heartbeat and rest assured that she is still thriving and growing.  Now I'm wondering why I didn't rent one earlier, as it has significantly decreased my anxiety.  I love it!

I've also felt her movements start to get stronger and increase in frequency, and a few days ago, Brandon was even able to feel her kick for the first time.  It was awesome, we totally had A Moment.  :)

...I'm just going to try to enjoy these next few weeks, as I know that when the 3rd timester begins, I'll have a whole new slew (rhyming: two points!) of things to complain about, which includes, but is not limited to: frequency of urination (if that's possible), back pain (it gets bad), an increase in hormones, and yo' mama.

I look pretty happy though, right?  I am.  :)
