Sorry I'm just now getting around to posting my 18 week belly pic. I took this picture on Sunday and I feel like I've grown even a bit more since then. Which is totally wild that my belly is gonna keep getting bigger. Thankfully, it will gradually be getting bigger. I think I might be a little taken back if I woke up one morning and all of a sudden my belly was huge. Again, all in the Lord's perfect design of giving us women 9 months to prepare for this incredibly miracle of having a baby.
Not too many other new changes as far as my pregnancy goes. I have definitely noticed the increase in my appetite. Current cravings include: lots of fruit, cinnamon raisin bagels, pickles, and root beer. I know that's totally random but what can I say? I'm pregnant people!
I'm just getting over a little cold I had this week. I worked the nursery at church a couple of Sundays ago, and every time I volunteer, within a week I get a cold. I truly love all of the kids I get to hang out with during that hour and a half, but Josh doesn't want me getting sick every other month either.
Also in this weeks news, I just finished the sixth book of the Harry Potter Series. I fell asleep crying last night. At first, Josh was laughing at me but then realized I was really sad and we talked about it and is still helping me deal, and reminding me it's just a book. But I've become emotionally attached to the characters in this story and feel like I'm one of their best friends. One more book to go. I'm a little hesitant to start it because I know it's the last book but anxious to read what happens. Josh's parents are coming into town for the weekend, so I'll probably start it sometime next week.
Just a week from tomorrow and we get to find out if we're having a boy or a girl! Looks like the majority is voting for us to have a girl. And that is what most people have been telling Josh and I. I guess we'll see next week!
