Jeremy and I have been traveling for awhile now. We left Ohio on December 12th for graduation at BYU-Idaho. We were in Utah for Jeremy's cousins' wedding, then we went to California. I would post pictures of our trip to the Logan Temple, Salt Lake Temple Square, and the sunset on the beach in California, but I lost my camera the first trip the beach. Sad day. I wasn't all that upset that I lost the camera. I just wish I could have those pictures from our trip.
Jeremy and I spent Christmas with his family in California. It is quite different seeing palm trees with Christmas lights on them. It was really weird seeing Christmas lights and no snow on the ground. Actually some people did have 'snow' on their yard. I told Jeremy if we ever live in a place that doesn't snow, we will put that cotton stuff all over our yard to make it look like snow. :)
We were able to go to the beach a few times and enjoy its beauty. We did not get in the water to swim. We did have a bonfire on the beach one night and roasted hot dogs and marshmallows. It was so pretty. The waves were really loud, the moon was full, and it was fun to sit and talk. Jeremy suggested that we just touch the water with our hands to say that I touched the west coast water. Well the wave came and I couldn't run back fast enough, so I got wet. Thank goodness I rolled up my pants. The water was freezing!
How Far Along: Today I am 32.5 weeks along.
Cravings: I still haven't had any cravings. I just eat about every hour or so.
Feeling: I am feeling pretty good, considering I have spent 50+ hours in a car in the past three weeks. I have had some good days and bad days.
I know I have been super blessed to be feeling well throughout this whole pregnancy. I was never really sick. I only got nauseous and light headed when I didn't get enough water or eat frequently.
Best Part of being pregnant right now: I love feeling the baby move. She is much bigger now and she is pretty active and so I can sit and others can watch her too. Never fails that when I say she is moving and everyone looks, she gets 'shy' and stops moving!
Worst Part of being pregnant right now: Just the other day I started getting really bad lower back pain. I don't think my back has ever hurt this bad. Yeah, I have always had back problems (it helps that my dad is a chiropractor to put me back together). But lately it has hurt. Walking it off helps and not being in one position for too long. I can't stand, sit, lay down, or walk for long periods of time. Jeremy has learned to just let me cry about it and be patient.
Sleep: Oh how I love naps! Jeremy asked me the other day how I lasted through student teaching not being able to take a nap every day. I think it was because my body knew that I couldn't take a nap and so I just pushed through every day. Now I can sleep. a lot.
