A review of my second trimester and my bump pictures, I wasn't as good as I planned at taking weekly bump pictures but it is still fun to see how my bump has progressed this trimester!
Getting to 14 weeks is exciting, it is the point when the first trimester is done and enter the second trimester. Although I don't get morning sickness (seriously so blessed) it is a relief to get past the first trimester, with the risk of miscarriage.
At 16 weeks we were able to get the ultrasound that showed us our baby GIRL! It was a fun week and I was in shock for days over the news.
At 19 weeks it was Mother's Day, of course Jonas was not cooperating with pictures so we didn't end up getting a good bump picture. (More on my previous post about Mother's Day)
Hitting the half-way mark is so exciting! We celebrated by having the 20-week ultrasound, we saw that baby girl is doing great and ahead in development and growth just like her brother. By this point I have also gathered quite the collection of bows, but it's okay because they're on sale.
At this point I have gone far past the standard nesting instinct, our whole house is clean and organized (with labels from my new label maker as evidence). And this is my pregnancy cycle: emotional, tired, back aches, emotional, hungry. Baby girl has also become quite the mover, since I've gone through this before I'm a lot more aware of her movements and it's fun to realize when she's moving around and the placement of her kicks.
Hitting 27 weeks means I have arrived at the end of my second trimester, this pregnancy has gone by so fast! I literally can't believe it is July, I feel like I'm gonna blink and it'll be my due date. I feel like I haven't done much to prepare for baby girls arrival, besides clean the house and buy bows, so I guess that'll be my focus this trimester. Of course this will be a little harder because in order to achieve anything I first need to get over my discomforts and exhaustion.
(I find the above picture comical because the classic Rexburg wind made it hard to get good pictures)
Although I feel anxious, I am happy to be entering the last part of my pregnancy healthy!
