20 wks and an anniversary!

Half way there! I can't believe we've made it this far!
I took a belly pic this morning and I think in the last 2 weeks my belly has EXPLODED ;-) The difference between 18 and 20 week pics is HUGE! (go back and look if you don't believe me:




I'm feeling mostly fantastic these days. After Friday's GREAT appt, it's a like a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders. I know there are still things that could be wrong with Olive and I know things could happen between now and October, but for now I know that my little girl is perfect, healthy and safe. And that makes me happy.

We also celebrated our 5th anniversary over the weekend (Saturday) and I have to say I married the most wonderful man on earth. There really wasn't anything all that great about the day, but Batman just makes me happy. I love being married to him. We didn't really do the gift thing this year since we are trying to get out of debt (hopefully before Olive comes along, but if not, soon after), but we've decided over the next few months to save up for a new blender. It's not really romantic, but it's something we have both wanted for a while now and using the beehive blender we have now is just NOT cutting it LOL. Who would have thought that I would be happy not getting diamonds? Certainly NOT me!
Needless to say, it's been a wonderful 5 years. Ya, we've had our ups and downs, but who doesn't? He's the love of my life and I couldn't be happier to be his friend, lover, mother of his child, and wife. I just hope the next 5 years are as happy as the first 5! :)

You look wonderful, I hope that the next 20wks will be just as uneventful as the first. October will be here before you know it.
