Half way there!! I can’t believe we have made it to 20 weeks! It’s also crazy to think that half of my pregnancy has been on bed rest, going on 10 weeks.
After so many years of struggling with infertility I had let go of the idea and accepted the reality that I would probably never give birth to a child. Yet here we are. Baby is healthy and growing, we are picking out names and thinking of getting the room ready.
Don’t be deceived, the bump is larger than it appears.
I am finding myself trying to online shop for a few maternity items as I watch my bump grow and my body change. Which in all honesty is a little eye opening and some days hard to accept as I watch the scale move.
There have even been a few moments of slight panic as the labor, delivery and infant scene are completely new to us. Although we are not first time parents it will be our first time going through the birthing process, bringing a baby home and experiencing countless nights of interrupted sleep. Safe to say my boys have me spoiled!
Despite the first time nerves, they are completely overcome with excitement in meeting and holding this new life. I continue to find myself in awe of this amazing gift and find my mind wondering what the little face will look like.
So here’s to the next 20 weeks! Praying it will greet me with a little more sympathy than the first 20 and perhaps even have me up and walking again soon.
Girl, throw out that scale pronto! 😉 And congratulations on being halfway. I can’t imagine how emotionally frustrating bedrest must be. You are doing the most difficult thing in the world—supporting life!

Haha, I need to or at least hide it for the time being!
Cassie, Please, please just take it easy. Remember you have a VERY important job right now, even if it means bed rest. As Heather says don’t worry about the scale. It will all be worth it when your holding your new little love bug in your arms. I still pray for you and the baby. Please keep us updated. We all love you so much and don’t want to see or hear any bad news, so be a good girl and do your bed rest. You could always listen and watch the Papal coverage.
Love and God bless,

Thank you for the continued encouragement and prayers! Promise I am taking it easy. We did in fact watch Papal coverage this morning and my boys loved learning about the Pope!
