I don't have very many pregnancy updates to share right now, just this picture and some general life updates.
Gabriel's accident happened last Friday. I don't believe, even for one second, that was only 6 days ago. It has been one of those situations where I'm not quite sure what is happening to time. Friday feels like an eternity ago, yet also only like yesterday. It's been one of those situations where I want life to slow down and speed up all at the same time. I don't have very much else to say about this, except that I'm so glad that I am a part of a loving, and supportive family, where we look out for each other and can come running when it is needed.
I read a quote this week from Martin Luther King Jr. and I have decided it fits well with how I feel about this situation: "Darkness cannot drive out darkness: Only light can do that." I need to stay positive and let the good in life drive out the bad.
Today is the first day since Friday, I'm not going to the hospital, and that is because it took Jordan 2 hours and 10 minutes to get to work this morning, a drive which usually only takes 25-30 minutes. The roads are sheets of ice. This has been the strangest winter. (And to top it off it's 61 degrees in Castle Rock right now.)
My belly keeps getting bigger, and I keep getting more and more uncomfortable, but I guess this is only the beginning (well, technically middle) of my uncomfortability. I can't believe I'm 2 days away from halfway. And I am happy to report that I haven't been nearly as sick lately, which makes life SOOOO much better. I think I've started to feel baby move, but it's such a new feeling I'm always unsure if I actually am. Belly button is still in but likes to pop out a little bit every night. Wedding ring is still on and still no real food cravings. We found out the gender last Thursday so be looking for a post about this in the upcoming future!
