When I was documenting my pregnancy with Arden, I remember people telling me that things would probably be different the second time around...and of course I thought, "Not for me! I'll be just as diligent for the second baby."
And then it took me 19 weeks to take a single bump picture.
Yikes!!! Can I just pretend there was some kind of freak internet shut-down where I lost all of the journaling I'd done the first half of my pregnancy?!
Oh well...I'm doing it now! Something is better than nothing, right?!
Oh and did you expect me to put on some real clothes for this picture?! I contemplated it...but then I decided my yoga pants were just way too comfortable :) Just keeping it real around here, folks!
How far along: 19 weeks
Size of Baby C: 6 inches
Fruit/vegetable comparison (according to Baby Center): Heirloom Tomato
Total weight gain: 7-8lbs
Movement: It's becoming more consistent! I couldn't believe it when I first felt him move around 15 weeks...a whole 3 weeks earlier than last time. I'll take it!
Unglamorous body changes: My blue veins are a little on the scary side!! They're extra noticeable because of my fair skin--it's like a neon roadmap all over my body. In other words, I'm in desperate need of a spray tan!!!
Maternity Clothes? I started rocking the maternity tops a few weeks ago (mainly so people would suspect I was pregnant and not just oddly-shaped, ha) but I'm still wearing regular pants most of the time. Oh and my fabulous roll-down wunder unders...Erin changed my life when she introduced me to them!!!! Best purchase EVER.
Showing: I think so but a stranger probably wouldn't know yet. I'm definitely bigger than I was at this point last time though!
Food cravings: Fruit, chipins, and lemon cookies. Yes, lemon cookies...thanks for that one, Dad.
What I miss: This summer weather has got me craving a cold beer. Sometimes I just smell Chris' and that makes me feel a little better ;)
Anything making you queasy: Not anymore...finally!!! I think I turned the corner between 16-17 weeks. Hallelujah!
Milestones: Baby's senses are developing this week and he'll soon be able to hear my voice :)
Best moment this week: Seeing a healthy baby boy at our ultrasound last Wednesday and sharing the news with our family and friends. Nothing better!!!!
Looking forward to: Nursery planning! This boy thing is going to be a whole new ballgame and I'm so excited about it!
So that's that! 21 weeks to go! I probably won't post these updates every week, but I'm determined to beat the 1/19 average I've got going so far ;)
