18 weeks and counting!

Last night we hit a milestone! Larry was able to feel the baby move for the first time. Baby's movements are starting to get much stronger. Which is a peaceful feeling for me. I like knowing things are going on in there and baby is growing and getting stronger! I know Larry loves feeling the baby move to. I know it is our 5th child but I don't think it will ever get old. Other things that have been going on is the crazy dreams. I usually have weird dreams when I am pregnant. With most pregnancies I remember them being related to pregnancy, this time they are very random. I always wake up wondering what they heck was that all about. For example I have had dreams about going back to the prom, only I am still the me I am now including being pregnant with my 5th child! Last night it was a dream about King Kong destroying this giant building we were in. After he left a Sister in our ward (I don't know if she would like me to use her name?) was trying to have an Easter Egg hunt for all the kids in the building that was falling apart! That is to name a few that I have had in the last few weeks. There are many more! Usually every night I have crazy dreams. In the past I have had dreams that I was pregnant with a litter of Kittens... I don't know anything about dream analysis but I think they might have fun with me now.

I weight myself and haven't gained any weight as of yet. All my weight is kind of shifting around though. My skin is starting that is starting to clear up. But I have a lot of those spots that can come with pregnancy. I don't know the real name for them. But I look like I have giant clusters of freckles on my for head. I am trying to be a good sport about it and know that it is or should be temporary. So hopefully they will go away after baby comes. Not wait for 18 months like they did when I had Hayden. At least they are in a less embarrassing place this time. When I had Hayden they were on my upper lip so it looked like I had a mustache! I really hated it and was ready to look into skin bleaching when they finally went away. The things we do to get babies into our homes! Good thing they are worth it!

I am starting to get some energy back. I can make it through the day with out having to have a nap. They help but I don't feel like I am going to die if I don't. I am ready for bed in the evening though. Which also means I am often able to get more things done in a day. Like yesterday I swept, and mopped my floor, along with cleaning up the living room, ran errands in the morning, and got a ton of stuff done for primary. Tuesday I was able to totally clean the bathroom (as in toilets, tub, sinks and floors),and the living room! A few weeks ago I would have barely made it through one of those with out being very very tired. I remember one day I got the living room picked up and vacuumed and then I had to leave the vacuum out for the rest of the day because I was to tired to put it away. Anyway I am feeling good and technically for me I am basically half way! Yeah! Sorry another post with no pictures! Maybe later today I can think of something cute to post!
