Well I am now 20 weeks and officially halfway through this pregnancy. I'm feeling much better as far a nausea and appetite are concerned but now I'm starting to get uncomfortable. I'm eating like crazy...I feel hungry constantly. But I've still only gained 7 pounds! I officially can not sleep unless I have a pillow between my legs and under my belly. My belly is just starting to get in the way at work. Fitting between the seats and squeezing around people is challenging. Also our jumpseats reek havoc on my back...they are so uncomfortable. I find myself standing most of the time and then of course my feet hurt. Only 14 more weeks of work....hopefully I can make it that long with out having to do light duty.

Speaking of work I'm on reserve this month which is a big bummer. Going from 19 days off to 10 is an adjustment. This week was my first block of five days in a row. I sat at the airport for the first day. The second day I got a 3 day trip and yesterday the sent me home and I have home reserve today. I don't think they will call since it's my last day....keeping my fingers crossed. So far it hasn't been bad. I've only worked three days unless you count the first day when I spent all day sitting at the airport playing on facebook and watching House...hehe. This should be the only month on reserve because it looks like I'll go back to a regular line next month! God has really taken care of me through all of this. It was really stressful for me to not have control of my schedule again...especially being pregnant. But so far so good. I've tried to keep a positive attitude about it and Philip has been really encouraging and supportive as usual.

We are still debating on a name but it looks like Sarah Elizabeth may have won out. I can't seem to find any other biblical names ending in "ah" that I like. Really I haven't found any other names that don't end in "ah" that I like either. I saw a friend of mine at the airport the other name and she mentioned that she had a cousin named Sarah Elizabeth and for short they called her Sarabeth. I really fell in love with's so cute. So unless something else comes along that we like better Sarah is it!
