This week (week 18) has, without a doubt, been the best so far. It has officially been 7 days since I have been sick in the morning, and I will never again take for granted being able to get out of bed without throwing up for 20 minutes straight. I feel and look pregnant now as well. I have made it past the awkward stage of looking like I ate a few too many hot dogs and not being able to button any of my pants to actually having an obvious belly bump. Complete strangers smile at me, hold open doors, and ask me when my due date is. I have had about 15 people that I don’t know (all women, thankfully) put their hands on my belly and tell me what a miracle it is to bring a baby into the world. I have heard so many women say they don’t like it when strangers touch their baby bump, but I really don’t mind. I’m just as in awe of having this little life inside of me as everyone else!
TheBump.com is keeping a countdown until we get to meet our angel. 150 more days until she or he makes their appearance (if they aren’t as stubborn as I was… I was almost two weeks late! 😉 )
