The Halfway Point

The Halfway Point

20 weeks down, 20 (or so) more to go! I can't believe that I am halfway through my pregnancy! My belly is now undeniable, though if you ask my mother, she'll say I just look like I've eaten too much cabbage. Though it's still quite small, I'm loving wearing tighter tops to show it off. [...]

My experience was not the worst case scenario. Sure, there was some puking, lots of napping, and a [...]
