I hope that you all have had a restful and blessed Thanksgiving! We were able to make a trip a few hours North and joined up with family to celebrate and enjoy time together. I'll spatter some photo memories in this update ... to keep you interested and let you know how things are progressing ;)
How far along? I'll be 26 Weeks in the mornin' :)
What's baby up to?
Our baby has sweet eyelashes now, and the Lord is crafting his or her eyes, which will soon start to open.
Maternity clothes? Wearing proudly :) Liking my "belly band" which helps give me the confidence I need to bend over to pick up my son without sharing skin with the world.
Sleep? I'm a great sleeper. Yes. -- but my bladder is not. My husband = the best. He hangs with Marshall and allows me to catch a few more winks when possible, because he's wonderful.
Best moment this week? Family time together -- time. ahhh. my greatest love language = quality time :) I've had the best few days! I'll give you some visual aids ... watching the sun rise over the ocean, finding pretty shells, reading books, cooking, eating, talking ... joy!
Symptoms? Ouch. my back :( I gained quick pounds this month which knocked me a bit out of whack. I've been doing some simple exercises and stretches along with PanAway essential oil -- which helps... but nerve pain is mean. I looked back on my midwife file from the first time around and was surprised to see that my back pain began at 15 weeks then. So I count myself #thankful. but pained none-the-less. #worthit
Food cravings? I like to eat. yep. Thanks, thanksgiving :)

Gender? Still waiting until our next ultrasound -- sorry for the torture, guys!
Labor signs? nope, I'm glad for that!
|"Ready go to beach, Mama" ... catch phrase of Thanksgiving|
What I miss? Feeling totally "me" and pain free. But hey, I'm still having a great life!
What I'm looking forward to? The sweet interactions yet to come between baby and Marsh :) Seeing my husband snuggle with a tiny one again ... and holding that little darling for the first time!
Comment Below, because I'd love to know:: What were some highlights of your Thanksgiving?
