I cannot even fathom that I am that I am six months pregnant! It seems so crazy that there are only 16 weeks to go (or less!) until our babe is here. I remember when I was 16 weeks and had 24 to go and felt it was going to be an eternity. Since finding out we are having a baby girl, and being able to shop and begin designing her nursery, I have felt it is going much quicker than before.
Getting to feel her move more, and kick, makes this feel even more real than ever. I cannot believe there is this beautiful miracle growing inside of me. We feel so incredibly blessed. I don’t want to wish away this indescribable experience being pregnant, but at the same time I just cannot wait to hold her in my arms and see her sweet face for the first time.
How far along: 24 weeks.
Baby is the size of: an ear of corn.
Maternity clothes: I am able to fit most of my clothing still and I shop lots in normal clothes and just get a size up for the bump. I do wear a few maternity jeans, and use my most fav thing, a belly band, to still be able to wear my normal pants and jeans as well!
Sleep: Has been feeling more uncomfortable and interrupted. I have to go to the washroom about two times during the night, and sometimes it wakes me up and I can’t fall back to sleep for a while as baby girl is kicking and moving a ton.
Movement: Baby girl is moving so so so much. It is amazing getting to feel how active she is and sharing that with my hubby, fam and friends! I love to sit and watch my tummy move on the outside too as she kicks, it is so surreal!
Best moment of the week: Had my last doc appt with my family doc and was told all is well. We also got to hear witty’s heartbeat which is always as amazing as it was hearing it for the first time. I get so emotional every time!
Miss anything: Nothing really.. I maybe miss not being so tired all the time!
Food cravings: The same old Arby’s curly fries! Such an odd one, but so so good.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Not overly, I feel pretty lucky. The odd time certain foods and smells have made me nauseous, like anything seafood Joel eats I feel I could die when I smell it – but that is normal for me anyways because I hate seafood, it just is way worse now!
Have you started to show yet: Most definitely! I am loving this baby bump.
Labor signs: None.
Belly button in or out: It is in the middle… not as in as it used to be but definitely not out!
Wedding rings on or off: On.
Happy or moody most of the time: I have good days and bad days. I think between the hustle and bustle of holidays and how busy and tiring it all was (and fun obvs!) I have been more moody. I just need to catch up on some sleep and slow down a bit 😉 but overall happy as can be.
Looking forward to: Getting more of babies nursery items, like her Restoration Hardware crib and bedding, in the mail to start her nursery. I have slowly been collecting things but I can’t wait to put it all together.
