It's been a while...

It's been a long time since the last blog. I was traveling around all summer and got back to FL a couple weeks ago and have been super busy since. I think I will be that way until the baby comes...well...after too, I'm sure.
We went to the doctor on August 5th, the day after we got back to Florida. At this appointment we got to hear the baby's heartbeat again (Cory for the first time in person) and I got a blood test done to check for Spina Bifida and Downs Syndrome. I got a call this week saying that the bloodwork came back fine and everything looks great! We have an ultrasound scheduled for this Wednesday (August 20th). I am sooooo excited to see the baby again! I am now 19 weeks pregnant and we haven't seen the baby since our 9 week appointment! I am so excited to see how he/she has changed. It doesn't even seem real that the pictures that I see in books of a baby at 19 weeks is like the baby that is growing inside of me. I can't wait to actually see him/her!
Overall I have been feeling really well. I still get real tired sometimes and have gotten some headaches and have been having trouble sleeping due to my back hurting (and all the trips to the bathroom), but overall, I can't complain! I can't believe that the pregnancy is about half over. Time is really flying.
Here is a picture of me at 19 weeks...
While I'm posting pictures, here are some others from this summer...
