• thinking that my belly feels bigger and more taut this time around; more like a “ball” than in my last two pregnancies
  • feeling so amazed at the amount of activity from baby in the last few days
  • feeling grateful every day for the amount of help and work my husband is doing around the house lately


  • knitting up many little caps
  • thinking that seven more weeks sounds infinitely long…and incredibly short
  • looking back at past pregnancy pictures, and realizing I already have a bigger belly now than I did at 40 weeks with the last one!
