Rosy Pink Cheeks

One of the things I have loved about pregnancy are my new rosy pink cheeks. 

They really came into being around Week 12, probably, although that's just a guess.  I forget how they first arrived, since it's been gradual.  They just kind of crept up and surprised me one day.  :)

If I've gone for too long without eating or have pushed myself too long without rest, they disappear.  It's a great visual reminder of how I'm treating myself when I look in the mirror.

And if I've made the mistake of losing them due to negligence, a short stay on the couch or bite of something yummy will bring the pink back within minutes. 

Thank you, dear God, for my new rosy pink cheeks.  I hope they stay with me after the baby is born!
