Baby on Board!!

Sorry I haven't posted in a while. Excited to say that my husband, Steven, and I are expecting our first baby together!! We are so anxious to meet our bundle of joy. So much to do and not enough time it seems.

Being pregnant is a beautiful thing. My sister had my niece, Londyn, last year in October and I was overseas and missed her birth but luckily I will have my sister by my side when my baby is born. I had to realize that being pregnant means I can't do what I use to. Sad as it seems. As much as I want to get on the volleyball court I can't and that hurts a little, but I know once its over it will all be worth it.  Here is a picture of me by the pool three days ago.

 22 weeks

Below is the picture of my sister 4 days before giving birth to my niece Londyn.

I honestly just amazes me how the human body knows exactly what to do and when to do it. Like I stated before pregnancy is a beautiful thing. Before I got pregnant I thought everything would be easy. I stand corrected its great being pregnant but it is also a struggle to maintain a healthy diet as well as exercise regularly without causing injury to myself and my unborn child.

All the wonders of motherhood has already started and my baby isn't even here yet. I find myself at Babies R Us a lot. It's comforting to be around other pregnant women. Not to mention seeing all the different toys, devices, electronics, baby clothes and all. I fall in love every time I walk in. I have 3 more months to go. I go into 23 weeks on Sunday. It's going by so fast and I can not wait for December to get here it's going to be great.

I have so much to write about but I cant wait to meet my baby. Then it's back to the sport I love. Until next time. :)
