18 1/2 weeks in...

I'm starting to show...As you can see.

About a week ago I felt the baby move for the first time! It felt like something flicked me with their finger inside me belly! I was really amazing. Since then I have felt the baby move several times. Not at consistent times yet though. About three days ago I felt the baby move so I put my hand on my belly and 2 seconds later I felt the baby move on the inside and the outside!!! It was sooo cool! We are going for an ultrasound on May 5th and there, if the baby shows itself, we will see what we are having! I'll keep you updated!!!

The journey begins....13 weeks

Well...I'm pregnant!!
I'm so thankful that God has blessed me and Tucker with this gift. You see... back in September I was pregnant and had a miscarriage at 7 weeks. Even though this is super common it wasn't easy for me to handle. God taught me a lot about trusting Him and His timing and from that I feel even more thankful for this new life I carry. Lord, let me be the mother you want me to be! Let this child be healthy bring glory to Your name and Your Kingdom!

As for the pregnancy...So far things have been going good. I'm lucky I guess because most people I talk to say that they were really sick when they were pregnant and I've really only been nauseous and tired. Thank the Lord I'm not throwing up!

As for the superficial aspect...I've worked out my whole life to not get fat and now I'm addicted to exercise so I guess that's sorta a good thing. However, pray that I won't be ridiculous about my body image as I get bigger..and bigger...and bigger!!!

updates will continue!

St John

Our trip to St John was one of the most amazing trips I've ever been on! I've never been more relaxed in my life! This is a place I would sell all I have and move to without thinking twice and as far as we found out lots of people have done that!

St John is beautiful!

In one of the information packages it says that there is one ass for every ten people!!! Hilarious! I'm sure they're right because we saw a ton of donkeys!!!

Uncle Tucker and Marshall!

yeah, awesome!

An Aloe plant!

We ate two evenings at skinny legs because they have the most amazing hamburgers!!!

The beach wore him out!

The end of our hike at drunk bay.

On the way to drunk bay!

There were a ton of these rock people at drunk bay. This one I made! I guess they named it drunk bay because drunk people found it entertaining to make rock people! I'm not really sure though!

This is at Salt Pond bay. I'm not sure what is in this shell but it was really slimy.
