The line has been drawn

On my belly that is. Tonight we took my parents to Okawa for some Japanese Hibachi and sushi to remember my Grandpa who passed away 23 years ago. I still am not used to Bug moving so much. It still freaks me put when I am eating and he sucker punches me. It's like a weird tickle. In any case, after Bug had feasted I went home and started getting ready for bed. For the first time I really noticed how big bug's getting. Part of that noticing was string straight at my brand new Linea Nigra. I swear it wasn't there this morning when I showered.

I am constantly impressed with pregnancy. It is so different than what I had expected and yet exactly what I thought it would be. No amount of planning or preparation can help a woman to understand fully what this journey is like. I can only say I have been blessed with the health and pregnancy I have been given. I'm really grateful for the mild morning sickness sans puking and feeling great except for pretty tired. I'm blessed that I have low blood pressure and low blood sugar instead of the dangerous highs. If only I could get rid of feeling like an air heady space cadet everything would be perfect but I'll deal. In 19 weeks I should be better than normal with my little Bug in my arms. I can't think of any living person more perfect to sacrifice for.

I'm not the only one

Little Bug,

Today, at 17 days 6 weeks, you gave me the best late Mother's day gift ever...you finally let your Daddy feel you move. It was the tiniest kick but it brought a smile to his face that warmed my heart. I'm so excited to share you with everyone else. Up till now it's just been you and me (ok, sometimes puppy Betsy smuggles on my belly to listen and feel you too) but now Daddy knows you're in there wiggling and stretching too.

I'm sure it was your way of saying "Thanks Dad!" for the delicious ribeye, steamed broccoli, mushroom risotto -and a piece of a lemon bar we had been craving. Well sweet little bug, thanks for the surprise. Everyday brings us a little closer to seeing your cute little face.
