Almost 5 months! My belly is more noticeable to strangers now, I get asked "when are you due?" more times a day than I can count. (more on the weekends when I'm in my regular clothes, it's still hard to tell when I'm in my scrubs...) And I secretly LOVE it :) I get to feel her so much more now.
It is amazing. Stu felt her for the first time last Sunday, it was such a precious moment. We were just waking up after our Sunday nap and baby girl decided she was going to have a little party in my tummy. She was kicking harder than ever so I thought Stu might be able to feel her if she kept it up. It took about ten minutes, but she finally gave us a good, HARD kick! Stu looked at me all excited and asked, "was that her???" and when I nodded, all he could say was, "I felt her, I felt her! I felt our baby girl!" over and over. It was so sweet, I couldn't help but tear up. He's such a cute daddy. He's so sweet to me too, I get spoiled rotten! Anytime I have a long day of work, Stuey makes me sit and rest and asks me what he can do to start prepping for dinner. He's getting to be quite the cook! He gives me daily foot rubs and always makes sure I'm comfy in bed surrounded by my millions of pillows. He's even brought me lunch at work, just to make sure I'm eating right. So sweet. And since we're on the topic of food... All I want to eat lately are bean and cheese burritos. (tia rosa's bean burro smothered with their green sauce is just HEAVEN) And fruit. And anything sweet. This little girl has an interesting appetite! I've been noticing lots of changes in myself within the last couple weeks: increasing weight, bigger pant size, lack of energy... all I know is that all of it is completely worth it. I am loving every part of being pregnant, even my swollen knees and cankles... so glamorous, I know. It's easy when I know that it's all for this precious little baby girl. So excited for the next four months!

Look at that 22 week belly!
