Pregnancy is good

The last few months have incited a lot of change for us. For those that don't know, I am 5 months pregnant and apparently I finally look pregnant instead of just gaining weight or sporting a "bloated belly" as I have heard it described. Of course, I love the comments that, "Hey, pregnancy looks good on you!" What pregnant woman doesn't like to hear that? And I have a wonderful husband who constantly reminds me how beautiful he finds me.

It has been funny to watch people's behavior though. At work people walk by me and as they say hello their eyes go from my face to my belly back to my face, unsure if they should say anything. And at church people are still wary of saying anything in case they are wrong. The last few weeks I have begun to understand what women feel when they are prego. I feel like suddenly my abs disappeared one day and I have a hard time getting out of the sofa, and I'm not even that big, or at the end of my work day my tail bone hurts, sleeping is getting to be a challenge, and I'm in the lovely transitionary period where most maternity clothes are still a little too big, but my regular clothes are getting too small. However, despite all of these new things, we are simply blessed that this baby is growing healthy and strong.


  1. Hi Brenda, this is Miri, one of Trevor's cousins. I haven't met you yet, but I found your blog through another cousin of ours and have been lurking on it for a few months now. I thought it was about time to let you know, especially because I wanted to say congratulations on the baby! I don't know when we'll be in Mesa next but I'm excited to meet you when we do. :)

  2. Pregnant! Karl and I had no idea. I am so happy for you two, you guys will make great parents. I don't know when we will be back to AZ, but I can't wait until I see your little baby! Babies are so much fun, you will love it.

  3. Wow Brenda! I am so excited for you! So, have you had an ultrasound yet? Are you going to find out the baby's gender? Well, my baby girl, Julia, is 2 months old now. She is so cute. Anyways, I hope you are doing well!
