This time around moving has seemed pretty stressful. I don't know if it's because we really didn't do much packing before hand or if it's because I've felt like there is this huge deadline approaching and we have to get everything done RIGHT NOW. Either way, we go to bed every night utterly exhausted. I still feel like there is so much to do and not enough time to get it all done. I think Tim finally hit a wall though, so we are taking a quick weekend vacation with some friends. We aren't going far, just a few hours away to take a break and relax a bit.
On another note, my pregnancy has become more noticeable and I'm starting to show more. The top of my belly has definitely rounded out. Going into this pregnancy I was almost ashamed to be pregnant while obese. I was sad to think that I wouldn't be able to take maternity pictures or that I wouldn't really show. The more into this pregnancy I get, the more I love my body and what it's capable of. It's true that most strangers looking at me probably won't recognize that I'm expecting but when I look in the mirror I can tell. And I smile every time at how amazing it is. This is not my ideal body, but for the first time in my life I truly feel like a woman. And there's love there for this body where there hadn't been before.
I've even started to feel the baby kick more often. It's such a sweet and amazing thing to experience those little flutters. It's also a relief to know that she's in there and moving around. I like the reassurance that feeling her kick provides. We're 26 weeks now which means only 14 more weeks to go. It's going by so fast and before you know it I'll be holding my daughter in my arms. I never thought I'd be able to experience that and my excitement grows every day. I know Tim is just as impatient to meet her. He's going to make such an amazing daddy.
