how time flies... (yes I am standing in a bathroom to take this picture but the lighting was lovely!)
(me at 17 weeks)
The other night (around 3:30am) I was tossing and turning trying to stay asleep and just hoping, hoping, hoping that my full and somewhat painful bladder would somehow disappear if I could just get in the right position when all of a sudden upon turning on my side I felt what I thought was bugs crawling on me, as I aroused myself from my sleepy state of being- I realized that the sensation wasn't on the outside of my belly but inside and those "bugs" just happened to be my baby wide awake (I think we may have a night owl on our hands!) and moving around. As I sat there for a little while, enjoying the feeling of life inside me, it was emotional to say the least and made me realize that it's all worth it- all of it!!
