It's been too long...

Time has flown since my last post. I missed a week of belly shots, I know, but I'm back with a new installment! I'm officially 19 weeks today and like I say everytime I put up a picture, I'm feeling big. I never thought that I would grow so rapidly, but I am and I'm still trying to come to grips with it. It is hard not to just feel fat all the time, it's a sad realization that I'm coming to. I thought that I'd feel beautiful and glow, but no... But maybe that is just Grenada. I mean, I do sweat ALL the time here, so my so called glow, could not be true. Here it really is sweat, there's no mistaking it. Maybe when I'm home for the second half of my pregnancy I'll feel more like myself. The cooler weather would help a lot, but I guess I just have to wait and see.
Speaking of, it is exactly three weeks today that we leave this Island. We'll be somewhere over the US right now...crazy thought. I can't believe that our time here is almost up, and I'm now starting to realize that I might start to miss this lifestyle/place/etc. a lot sooner then I had originally thought...maybe in about five to ten years instead of fifteen to twenty. I think that the haze will wear off sooner, get back to me in a year once I've left this place and I'll let you know how I feel then. The thoughts of being able to stay in North America for longer then a month or two is beyond what I can grasp at the moment. To say that I (and Zach) can't wait to get home right now is the understatement of the century! We are so ready for home, for Christmas, for cool weather...dare I even say freaking cold weather!! We just want to be there...period. And thinking about all that is to come in the next months after Christmas, it's overwhelming...not to mention the move to the US once the baby is born and Zach has written one of the biggest tests of his life. If we think about everything too much...well let's just say that one step at a time is the best method to go about things here!
My parents have come and gone and I think that the trip went well. They seemed to have enjoyed themselves despite the rainy days that happened while they were here. Still got in most of the beach days that they wanted, my dad even went in the ocean...for those of you who know him, that's just not like him. I'll post a few pictures of the trip the next time I post. I have to quit writing now, I'm about to fall asleep! More later...





Self taken shot...no head again!

Thanks for updating you blog. I remember the first half of pregancy just made me feel fat, but once the belly really shows its not so bad. Then you can be sure that everyone you meet will know you are prego, not just packing extra pounds. Enjoy your last few days of sun and sand before you come back to good old Abby and rain, rain and more rain.
