T was a little upset that I was going to be leaving him for a couple of days, but I was glad to get to spend some time with other women. He did just fine without me! There were about 40 of us this year, which is 10 more than last year. At night, the dining hall was filled with lots of laughter and cheerful voices, mine included! It was really good for me because some of the things that were talked about really hit home in certain areas of my life that I'm struggling with. Prayer was the "theme," of the gathering this year. Anyways, I won't get all sentimental on ya'll, but it was a good time and a refresher for me when it comes to prayer and the Lord! :)
So, going into the gathering, me, my best friend, and our Pastor's wife were the only ones who knew I was expecting. However, leaving the event, all 40 women knew. Someone spilled the beans I don't know who it was yet but it is on longer a surprise! Oh and did I mention that pregnancy was the topic of conversation the whole weekend after everyone found out. Everywhere I turned there were women talking about their experiences and giving advice. I was a little overwhelmed, but it feels good know that more people know.
So with that, I can start blogging about it! Yay!
This is me at 19 weeks along today
People can't believe I'm 19 weeks along and hardly showing at all. I asked my doctor about it and he said because I had such a lean stomach, (I was flattered because I don't think my stomach is very lean) that I wouldn't start to really show until around 26 weeks. I go back to the doctor on the 7th of November and he said that he would order an ultrasound so we can find out what it is! :) I can't wait!
And in other news....
This one is like having a little kid around. Since he barely has any hair, I let Cooter sleep in the house with us. He does pretty good for the most part and gets up about every hour and half to be let out. My mom said it's good practice... Haha! Except for last night of course, I wasn't feeling very good and slept through his whining. It wouldn't have been so bad except that T put him on the bed so guess what, I'm washing bedding today. Let's see, I have shoes missing, and socks, and holes in the bottoms on my pajama pants where he stands that and pulls on my pant leg in the morning. I try putting him outside but Spur just mauls him and is way to rough. T says it's good for him but I feel bad for him because Spur won't even let him walk, he just runs him over and knocks him down.
Button and Cooter at my parents house. She is very protective of him. :)
Well I suppose, I have fall decorating to do today, so ya'll have a great week!
