prego pic update and stuff

16 weeks. Almost halfway there! I am definitely enjoying pregnancy so far. Especially since my doctor gave me some nausea medicine. That has helped immensely. I have really enjoyed following the development of the baby week by week. The process is so completely amazing!

I've been a little homesick lately. Homesick for family and just for the northeast part of the country where I grew up. I feel like Nashville tries really hard to have a fall season but it just doesn't even come close to the falls of PA and MD. Then there's the whole baby thing. Something I would love to be sharing with family and as much as we try through pictures it just isn't the same. I never thought I would be one of those people who had to live near family. I mean, I love my family, but growing up I never had a problem with going away for a while and experiencing new things. The longer we live here, though, I wonder. The difference between when I was growing up and now is, I always went back. We go and visit when we can now, but I'm finding it's not nearly enough!

Josh and I are going to check out the midwife wing at the Vanderbilt Hospital on Tuesday. I already know what I want my birthing process to be like, which makes me think we will be switching our care to a midwife even before we've talked to them, but I am trying not to make up my mind before weighing both options fully.

I feel like this post is all over the place, but, it's my blog, so it's okay, right? =)
