22 Weeks

We had our 1/2 way ultrasound last Friday at 21 weeks. Everything looked good and heartbeat was strong. I don't know if knowing that things are going well changed things for me or if we just had a growth spurt, but WOW I popped out this week! I still have people telling me that I'm not really showing yet, but I think it's because I wear loose-fitting clothes and don't talk much about being pregnant. For a while it was really getting to me that people were saying that, even though I knew it was in no way a negative comment. I think I was coming from a place of fear that there was still a chance we could loose this one too. Should I be showing more? Why wasn't I? Was the pregnancy not progressing again? Why were so many people commenting on it? Instead of being a rational human being like I normally am and realizing that it's probably because I have a long torso and the baby is going to rest up and down, not out, I was reacting emotionally (couldn't possibly have been the hormones). After seeing the heartbeat again and seeing how much the baby has grown, I feel much more at ease about everything. So here's a picture of me and Baby Walsh at 22 weeks. March 1st is getting closer and closer!!!!

On a side note- a huge congratulations to our friends Gina and Kyle. They welcomed their twin girls into their family yesterday. Welcome Genevieve and Arianna, we can't wait to meet you!

Again, you look GREAT!

When most people think of a pregnant belly, they're envisioning the 9-months-pregnant size. So when they see someone at 4-6 months, it's natural to say somehting like "you're not showing much!" I know, annyoing! But to think the embryo started as the size of a poppy, yah, it's grown A LOT!

Oh, and just wait until you ARE 9'll look back and think you were "small," too!
