24 weeks

Last week was a busy one. I was finishing up school, looking forward to spring break and Josh and my little getaway over the next few days. Josh surprised me for my birthday with a few days away to the beach as a last trip with just the two of us (at least for a long while). I am really looking forward to just being able to relax and have nothing to do. It should be just what we both need.

I had a doctors appointment last week. It went well. The heart beat is strong and our little boy is growing right on schedule. The doctor was a little concerned about my condition and ordered some extra blood tests. I will go to the hospital when we get back from our trip to take those. I am sure everything will be fine, she just wanted to make sure I am responding correctly to the medication I am taking.

The baby has really been active! He gave Josh a good show last night kicking really hard for about a half an hour. I was glad, because he seems to always do that when Josh is not around to feel him. It was fun to sit there and get excited together every time the little one moved and kicked. It was nice to share that together, to talk about the future and this little boy we will soon meet. It is so hard to imagine a little person in there, but I am getting more use to the idea. I am excited to know him and figure out what kind of kid he is going to be. Mostly just to kiss his little face and hold him close and smell his tiny little peach fuzz head.

Don't get me wrong, I am still terrified by the whole prospect of being a mom, especially when I think about the fact that this kid has to come out of me....some how. But I am also trying to find joy and excitement in the things Josh and I will get to experience.

For those of you wanting a sickness update. I am still nauseous pretty much every day, but not all day any more and not as violently as before...so yay I guess.
