The Joys of Pregnancy...

The Joys of Pregnancy...
  • Waking up with leg cramps
  • Waking up in the middle of the night to pee
  • Not being able to get comfortable no matter where you sit
  • Feet and Legs getting extremely tired just from standing up for a little while
  • Feet getting really hot and swelling up like balloons
  • Being HOT all the time
  • Having a hard time getting up out of bed because you feel so heavy
  • Feeling like you have to pick up your belly when laying on your side because it's so heavy
  • Having your bladder used as a trampoline
  • Stressing about money and being prepared for when the baby comes
  • Having every ache and pain be "normal"
  • Feeling like you are eating way too much but not being able to control yourself
  • Not being able to shave your legs as easily as a big belly in the way
  • Not being able to reach my toes to paint them even though they need it
  • Not being able to get comfortable at work no matter what you do
  • Not fitting into any of your clothes anymore
The REAL Joys of Pregnancy...
  • Knowing that you are growing a miracle inside of you
  • Knowing that even after all the aches and pains, it will all be worth it
  • Knowing that there is a real human inside of you
  • Feeling the baby kick and move around
  • Seeing and hearing the baby's heartbeat
  • Seeing your baby grow and get stronger with every ultrasound
  • Knowing that your baby is developing perfectly
  • Knowing that you will soon get to hold that precious child in your arms
  • Feeling the joys and fears of parenting
  • Decorating and getting the baby's room ready
  • Seeing other babies and thinking that I will have one in a few months
  • Looking in the mirror and enjoying your belly because it's not just's a baby!
  • Watching your husband's face light up when he gets to feel the baby move for the first time
  • Knowing that your baby is healthy
  • Imagining what life will be like in a few months
There really are ups and downs to pregnancy...but just knowing that little Bethanie will be here before we know it excites me beyond belief. :)
"I'm so excited and I just can't hide it!!" That's how I feel. LOL
