Baby, Wave Hello To My Friends!
This wonderful picture of our baby was taken a week ago. This time it was much more relaxed, and at some point it seemed to by sucking its thumb. (I am really looking forward to being able to say 'he' or 'she' once we find out the gender. By the way, anyone want to take a guess?)
I have been feeling so great this past week. My appetite is healthy, I have energy, and there is no sign of the nausea that had me green at the gills in the first trimester.
My next ultrasound is on April 20th, which seems like forever. And I think of the countless women before me to went through entire pregnancies without ever seeing their baby on an ultrasound screen, and am in awe of the faith they had that everything was alright. I talk to other women my age who are pregnant or have babies, and we all seem so frightened and worried. It makes me wonder if women were always this worried or if it's a new phenomenon.
I've finally stopped craving sweets, and now I mostly dream of burgers, fruit, and green coconut water.
Spring is truly in the air and slowly but surely spreading it's greenery over the land. I can't wait to share pictures of the wild garlic, creeks of melted snow, and doggies with you. At the moment my Photoshop isn't up and running, so you'll have to have a little bit of patience before I can get to regular posting again.
Sending joyful wishes your way, and thanking you for the sweet and loving comments you've left me,
xoxo country girl
