29 Weeks // Thoughts on Pregnancy

Last week we got some of the very best news! This week the semester officially ended and we didn't have to eat dinner with the Monster, so it's been a good week too.  Technically, I'll be 30 weeks Monday so I'm a bit behind, but it has made it's way onto the blog regardless so I deserve a high five.


I've been thinking a lot this week about what pregnancy is to different people. To some it is sweet and beautiful and to others? It is awful, painful, and an overall difficult nine months.  I think I fall somewhere in the middle.  I am by no means Michelle Dugar.  I do not love pregnant and wish I could be pregnant all the time, but I also do not hate it.  I have had an easy pregnancy thus far and I am very, very thankful for that.  I did not experience vomiting (morning sickness) and I haven't been extremely tired, so I consider myself lucky.  I think that if my experiences so far hadn't been so calm and easy, I would despise pregnancy a bit more.  It really hit me this week how long it takes to grow a baby.  Being pregnant for 9 months is a very long time.  It's essentially 9 months of feeling like an alien.  I can totally get why those who hate pregnancy do.  I absolutely love feeling my little guy kick and move around, I love that I get to grow him and I love that I get to birth him.  I also love that I only have to feel this heavy for 11 more weeks.  


I've gained 13 pounds so far.  Well as of last week anyway.  It's been so hot this week --- aka --- icecream has been my bff.  Really nervous about this next weigh-in.
