This is probably the third time I've tried to post something this week..but nothing interesting seems to be going on so I stop before I really get started. I still have nothing terribly interesting to say, so I won't be offended if you stop reading now :)
The weather has been warming up for sure, and with summer in WV apparently comes thunderstorms and rain in general, forecasted 4 out of 7 days of the week. I don't mind the rain and storms, I do mind the humidity. I think I have decided that I do honestly prefer a 120ºF blast of heat walking out the front door to 80ºF+86% humidity, but I will just have to get used to it again. Zeke and I have been needing to take our walks earlier in the day to try and beat the heat, but I'll tell ya what, walking 2 miles at 86% humidity..it doesn't matter WHAT time of day you walk, you will still think you're about to melt into a puddle by the end of it.
Humidity and I in the summers have never really gotten along, this one being no different. When it's warm/hot out, my hands have always swollen some when I exercise (aka go on walks or hike), and as a result this summer, I've had to put on a place-holder ring a size bigger then my wedding bands for sake of comfort. When I'm inside in AC, we have no problems..but it gets annoying to change rings all the time, so Jesse has okay'd the use of this other band for the time being :P
Other wonderful changes I am noticing..with Lily growing, I am starting to get more uncomfortable doing normal, every day tasks. Mainly bending over, but when I do, she kindly reminds me she is in there and I really shouldn't be bending over quickly anymore. I'll tell ya what though, you bend over quickly to reach down and grab something like you're used to with a growing baby inside? Apparently makes me feel like I'm going to throw up. I think with her growing, she is starting to put pressure on my internal organs, which is not comfortable either, because my appetite is slowing down (some) and I sometimes just really feel uncomfortable in my stomach area. Oh the joys of pregnancy :)
Overall, things are moving along well, I think. I'm kind of starting to notice different movements, mostly the difference between her just stretching out and an actual kick. I'm going up to Findlay this weekend for a friend's wedding, and then going on to a week at camp from there. And I have the real glucose test to look forward to when I get home! Woohoo..
