The Bambino - Week 18

I know pregnancy details aren't always interesting to other people, but for the sake of my own family history I thought I would write a little about this pregnancy and post a few pictures. We were successful in getting pictures of month one, three and four. I don't think I really even remember month two . . . I was either asleep or throwing up during that month. Ugh - that was rough. I have ended up feeling really great since about week 14 (please don't hate me all of you who never get that "okay" feeling). I never felt this good with Gavin - I was nauseous until the day I had him. It has been nice to get a little energy back this time and finally feel like I don't need to carry food with me at all times in case of an emergency. :) We truly have felt so much gratitude for this little boy that we have affectionately named "The Bambino."

The doctors appointments continue every other week and so far we are told that he looks healthy. Of course, we won't be totally convinced until that baby boy is in our arms and we are walking out of the hospital with him to go home. However, we have had a very optimistic and peaceful feeling about our little Bambino.

I really hate pregnancy pictures of me . . . especially since I seem to have doubled in size just by my fourth month - but I know it's fun for other people to look at laugh! SO, laugh away! :)

No laughing. You look totally cute. I love that you are wearing the same thing in all of them. I noticed that in your slide show of your pregancy with Gavin. Great idea. I'm glad you are feeling a little more energy.

I wish I could laugh, I want to cry because I NEVER looked that cute in ANY pregnancy pictures. In fact I tend to get rid of them over time. Your little guy will love seeing the pictures one day, my kids love to look at the few that we do have. Glad you are feeling better!!!

you are so adorable. i hate pictures of me without being pregnant... i relate with you, but you are too cute! thank you so much for your blog. writing is a gift that you have, and it is a gift to us that you share it with us. Today Brigg said the cutest thing... we were listening to Colbie Callet and without fail, everytime we hear "gavin's song" as they call it, and we have to watch "gavin's movie". Today it was just me and briggers at home nad we heard "gavin's song" and Brigg said, "it's Gabin's song". I thought it was the cutest thing ever!

Lindsay you look so beautiful pregnant...I know we never believe that when people tell us that....BUT you really really do! I think the last picture I took of me prego was at month 5 or 6 and then I stayed away from any and all camera's until of course everyone had them out in the hospital.
