27 Weeks Pregnant

This week I got to welcome the third trimester!

That means two trimesters down and only one left to go. What are my thoughts and feelings? I am beyond excited! In just 13 short weeks I get to welcome this little guy into the world. I love newborns and how sweet, tiny and perfect they are. I am also scared! Will I be able to handle TWO kids? Will I be able to love this little guy as much as I love Lincoln? Will Lincoln feel replaced and sad? So many emotions and feelings.

I have felt A-mazing this week! Seriously! I haven’t had a single symptom of being pregnant, besides constant kicks to the ribs and sides, not even acid-reflux or pain in the pubic bone. Maybe the honeymoon stage of the second trimester will linger a little longer. Cross my fingers!

Baby is doing good and growing wonderfully. I swear he kicks me all day long and it is starting to get a little painful but I enjoy every moment. I went to my doctor’s appointment and I am measuring right on, healthy, healthy. He is now the size of cauliflower!

Here I am. I finally went and bought a couple of new shirts and a pair of shorts. My sister-in-law gave me this maternity skirt and I love it.

26 Weeks Pregnant

I missed last week because we went to Idaho for awhile. It was great to see my family, but I don’t think I will be driving much during my pregnancy anymore. I felt great clear up until last Sunday when I played steal the flag with my family. I was doing good until I had to get someone out of jail and ran my little heart out. Of course I didn’t get caught! I am faster than my brother even pregnant. Yet, after that run I couldn’t walk anymore. I dragged myself to the house where I laid down and tried to get the pain in my pubic bone to go away. It hurt so bad! I could hardly sleep that night and every time I moved I would cry out in pain. The next day my brother, who is a Chiropractor, worked on me and I felt much better. I waddled for a few days, but at least I wasn’t fighting back tears with every movement.

I have gained another three pounds, making the total 20. I seriously cannot believe that I am six months pregnant. It is incredible! Baby is moving lots and I occasionally get a kick to the ribs. My acid reflux has been non-existent lately and I think it is because my stomach has finally popped out. I think I look bigger in real life than this picture. Probably because I am standing up straight when I usually am all sloppy posture! I finally went out and bought a new bra and oh my gosh can I breathe! I need to go buy some bigger shirts and pants. It is crazy how much prettier I feel when I wear clothes that actually fit. It would be great to say “I wore the same clothes my entire pregnancy” but let’s be honest, that would not be very flattering, even if I was only belly.
