Blessed...

So after the stomach flu for 36+ hours - I'm happy to report that I'm alive and well. So is baby. We had a baby appointment this afternoon & heard the heartbeat again. My doctor said all is well for baby. As for me - I'll be fine too. The good news is I haven't gained any weight yet in my pregnancy & as you'll see in a picture below - I am showing...so I guess baby is using up some of my 'extra'. :)

I was blessed to have my sister & the girls come down yesterday afternoon to take care of me. Laura arrived & started helping with laundry, sorting my clothes that don't fit & making room for ones that do (thank you Beth!! I LOVE them!!), changing sheets, disinfecting the house, cleaning the litter box, going grocery shopping - etc. THANK YOU LAURA!!!

And I was very happy today that she was able to accompany me to my baby doctor appointment - I think she enjoyed that opportunity too. So fun. All is well.

Around 5:00 I got a call from my SIL that they were coming through town & were stopping for dinner - we went to meet them & for the first time ever, I got to have all of my nieces & nephews in one location! That was so fun for me. We had a great dinner (thank you Jeff for switching dinners with me-fickle pregnant lady) & then snapped a few photos before we left.

All in all my week is shaping up quiet nicely - I'm very thankful. And very blessed.

Me at 13 1/2 weeks (no - it didn't use to stick out that far - I promise)... :)

Look at that cute little growing belly!! While I am glad that the pregnancy and newborn stage is done with in my life, I do have to say it is such a fun and exciting thing to experience! Glad you are feeling better and look at that, you've entered the "good" trimester!!

you are so stinkin' cute! Love the baby bump! I was wondering why you weren't at small group and the post explains it all. Hope you are feeling much better!

Oh goodness, this took me back to when I was pregnant and you said to keep sending pictures because it was hard being so far away!! And now it's me ... I'm already missing you so and I can't imagine when the baby is actually here. I might have to kidnap you! ;). So happy that even if you don't feel your best, baby is good and growing :). Loves!

I love the baby belly! Can I touch it next time I see you? I used to LOVE it when people touched my belly, I loved to show it off ;)

Oh yuck, I'm so sorry you had the flu, that is horrible, especially when you're pregnant. Glad you're feeling better and love the picture. I need to take more this time around. Not "showing" yet though.
