22 weeks

Hello! So I am now 22 weeks. I have been sick for the last couple of weeks, I blame it on my first graders who refuse to cover their mouths while coughing! Oh well, I guess I better get used to it! I had a mild freak out after not getting a good nights rest for the 5th night in a row. I cried I yelled at Derek, I threatened to quit my job and school, but I am better now. Derek wants me to quit my job. But, I have the easiest job ever and I only work around 15 hours a week. So I have decided to just do it until I literally can't. Plus I love the people I work with, so I would miss the relationships. I am fine as long as I DO NOT get sick again. It was miserable. I already am breathing heavier because of being pregnant. Adding not being able to breathe out of my nose was horrible. I was always out of breath and it was not fun. I am still coughing, but besides that I am doing great. I can feel Benjamin pretty much all the time now, which is really cool. Derek felt him last week and thought that was cool. Last night he was able to feel one hard kick and then he could feel him rolling around. he kept say, "dang he is getting big". It was super fun. Derek also likes to remind me of my ever growing belly. Which I love. Being pregnant is amazing and I love the stares and I also the the belly rubs people give. Maybe I will get sick of it, but for now I am loving it. I have my monthly check up this Thursday. I am excited to hear the heartbeat again. I love going to the doctor because it means I am that much closer to meeting my little man!!!

Oh, you look so cute. Glad you are feeling better. Sounds like Derek is getting into feeling Benji. BTW your hair looks very nice with the layers in the front. Derek's a good guy...tell him I said so. Love you and can't hardly stand being away from you right now.
