Some stuff

I think I've "popped." I can feel the baby kicking quite a bit, and I'm starting to feel bumps - as in baby parts sticking out. Kind of interesting. I've been really enjoying wearing some cute maternity tops and even my one pair of maternity pants. And I'm starting to look more pregnant than fat. That's a happy thing. :)

Tonight we had a short-notice baby shower for Sarah. We did some moving around, invited as many people as we could think of, and ended up with a great little party. She's due in 2 months and her birthday was 2 days ago. She had some mission friends, some singles ward friends, relatives on both sides. It was great.

I got all the advancements for scouts ready ahead of time (with a LOT of help from Sue and Jolene who did all the inputting) so I could skip the pack meeting. I separated out all the awards by boy and by den, and I think I'm going to do that again next month. It was VERY convenient and it will make giving them out at the meetings way easier. I love organization!

I'm starving. Pregnancy is an interesting phenomenon. I can eat a tiny meal, but then I'm hungry again an hour or two later. And if I don't eat then I feel sick. I don't want to gain so much with this pregnancy (gained 54 pounds with Felix) because I felt totally bloated for months afterward. blech.

So far, though, this pregnancy has been kind to me. She's an active little bugger, but I feel pretty good. Uncomfortable, sure, but not really that bad. It's some good times...

Can you husband feel the baby kicking yet? I have been able to feel the baby kick for a while, and I love it. I must say the 2nd trimester really is a great period of the pregnancy. I look pregnant not just fat, and I can feel the lil'one and I can still get some things done around the house. :)

COngrats again on the lil'one to come!

Not kicking, but he can feel when she's pushing out because parts of my belly will be hard instead of mushy. That's fun. :)

And congrats to you too!
