I'm finding it hard to believe that I am actually a full 7 months along at this point. We've been going to childbirth classes and I've been steadily getting bigger and bigger, but it still seems like I haven't been pregnant very long.
I could complain about how hard it can be to sleep at night, or how stretched out my stomach feels or the heartburn (oh the heartburn!!!), but the truth is, I actually feel more beautiful than I think I've let myself feel in a long time. Does that sound weird?
As Josh can attest I am frequently heard saying that I feel huge, but in truth it's more like I feel like "I swallowed a watermelon whole" rather than "I feel fat" cause I don't. I feel like I look good. Like I am healthier and happier than I've been in a long while.
When I was working at home I always felt like I had a bit of the blues (lets face it, I love NSN, but the job became a daily torture by the time I finally got to leave), but now that I'm tired and I have weird physical symptoms, I feel great. I'm looking forward to the future, even though it is as uncertain as it has ever been. I have a job, for the upcoming year and a house and a wonderful husband who could not be more caring or attentive... I know I had these things before, but I am enjoying and appreciating them more than I thought was possible.
I had Josh take this picture on Sunday. I'm wearing a dress my fabulous sister-in-law sent me from Korea. Heena has impeccable taste and I regret that we live so far away because I think that we could be close friends if we had the opportunity to live closer. Just another hting to appreciate in my life.
