HALF WAY through my pregnancy

I am officially 20 weeks pregnant!! I am halfway through, and honestly I have mixed emotions. I LOVE being pregnant – I love my bump, how my body is changing and adapting to grow our babe, feeling babe move around, and knowing this little bean started out as big as a chia seed is now as big as a banana.

But at the same time, I can’t WAIT to meet this cutie. We’ve dreamed about the day we’ll meet the baby and see what they grow up and become in this world!!

almost 20 weeks!

The first trimester was a lot harder on me than I expected it to be. It’s not like I thought it would be no biggie – just growing a human! But it was a LOT harder on my body than I ever thought. I didn’t feel like myself from weeks 6-13. I had no energy, I felt like crap, all I wanted to do was eat and sleep. And the weirdest part was I didn’t notice I was feeling so down until week 14 hit – then BAM – I woke up one morning and felt like myself again! I had energy and cleaned the entire house!!

The second trimester has continued to have a bunch of firsts (more positive firsts, yay!) – first time I noticed my bump, first baby wiggles, first baby kicks & punches (as I write this, babe is doing their gymnastics routine in me), and of course the day we found out what gender this little peanut is (it’s a secret until baby S is born)!!! I feel like myself again, my hunger has evened out, and this bump is impossible to hide (not like I’m trying).

I can’t wait to see what the next 20 weeks brings us, and we are so excited to finish this chapter of our lives and start the next one – welcoming our wonderful little human into this wild, wild world.

Stay tuned for my next mamahood post!!
