I am 18 weeks pregnant this week. We are praising God that I'm almost halfway through this pregnancy, and things are going so well!
I guess starting about 2-3 weeks ago, I went from being able to squeeeeeeeze into my pants to having to take my first trip to the mall in search of maternity clothes. Where did this tummy come from?! It's been a little adventure learning about and watching my growing belly!

My emotions are completely out of whack, too. I can tell, because some days I wake up and look at myself in the mirror and think, "Where did the belly go? I think it was bigger yesterday! What if something is wrong?!" Other days, my first thought when I glance at my reflection is, "Good GRIEF! Did I double in size overnight?!" Both thoughts send me into a whirlwind of emotions that ultimately always lead me back to thinking on Truth. I have to be sure that I spend time with my tall glass of OJ and my Bible every morning to walk through this season of life and keep my eyes fixed on God instead of my changing body.
It has been exciting to feel some little flutters inside, but I am even more excited for Adam to be able to feel them along with me. I can't wait for all that's to come!
