My world

When we are together, I am the happiest I have ever been. Yesterday I was thinking how much my desire to be around Ashton has increased, especially since I became pregnant. I'm sure it has a lot to do with evolution and how women want to keep their man around, but I have never, ever felt this kind of love before. It really is so hard to explain the depth of this feeling in words. I look at him and see everything good; what a close to perfect man is-he is. From his work ethic to his morals, to how amazing he treats me and cares for me. I am so thankful for him... it brings tears to my eyes when I think about what our life is becoming.

Second Trimester

As I progress through this pregnancy I wonder how my body will respond. I have read numerous articles about stretch marks and as far as I have come to understand, it is largely a genetic predisposition on whether or not you will get stretch marks. Apparently keeping your skin hydrated with something with a base of either cocoa butter or shea butter helps too, so I am doing both! My mother didn't get any stretch marks from any of her 3 babies, so here's hoping!
