27 weeks

It has been a while! I can hardly believe that we are already at our 27 week mark.  Our wee girl is growing, and with her my stomach, chest, behind, and oh, just about everything else.  It can get a little depressing, but I've decided that I am not going to be vain and let it get in the way of the happiness I feel about this baby girl.
Since about week 18 or 19 I have felt great.  I was done with morning sickness at 15 weeks and was very thankful to have that behind me.  Coming down with a horrible cold was almost worse than the entire time I was nauseated, however.  Luckily that was over in a couple of weeks, though it seemed like an eternity at the time.  The worst thing I feel now is complete exhaustion.  This growing baby gig can really take a lot out of a girl! And now since my uterus is a little bigger than a basketball, it doesn't give a lot of room for anything else - including food and water.  We went in for an ultrasound a couple of weeks ago, and she was just over 2 lbs. at the time, so she is probably in the almost 3 lb. range by now.  I feel her movements constantly, and I love it! I love that she is my constant companion throughout each day.  Dave and I can't wait to meet her!
Anyway, that's my update for now.  All is well.  Yay!
