Pregnancy Update ~ 19 Weeks

I am currently 19 weeks pregnant, and everything is going GREAT so far.  The sickness and nausea of those first few months wasn't all that bad, and I'm glad to be able to say that now I feel very good!  I am glad to be almost at the half-way point of the pregnancy, and the anxiety I felt in those early weeks is now ebbing away; though ultimately we know everything is in the Lord's hands.  Being 19 weeks along in the pregnancy, now means that my tummy is getting to be pretty big, which I love!  I am a notorious belly stroker/rubber/patter!   

One big difference that I've noticed in this pregnancy, is how much energy I have!  Though I am exhausted tired at the end of each day, it is nice to not need a 1-2 hour nap everyday, like in my previous pregnancies.  We do have a much better diet this time around, so that is obviously helping me to feel nourished and healthier. I have also been able to source a great prenatal vitamin, along with fermented cod liver oil, which I think has made a huge difference in how much energy I have.  With a growing family to care for, I am thankful for every extra ounce of energy I can get! 

All the kids are extremely excited about the new baby!  Amy would like another sister, Dylan would definitely like a brother this time around, as he feels as though he has enough sisters at this stage!  When we asked Miss Meg what she would like, she stated that she would like...a man with a beard!  She really has a "thing" for beards right now, and even thinks she has one herself!  That girl is a riot!
