30 Weeks Pregnant

We’re about 30 weeks in, with two and a half months left till Baby Girl gets right here. And I think it’s protected to say that the “sweet spot” I was in final time is loooong gone. It was beautiful whilst it lasted, gang! We’ve got aches, we’ve got pains, we’ve got a little waddle beginning to create that I’m fighting as fiercely as I can. 😉 But so far infant is nonetheless healthful and I’m nonetheless going to the fitness center so I’m counting those as key wins. Here’s some a lot more. xoxo


EATING literally just watermelon for dinner.

DRINKING like a camel. Do camels drink a lot? Maybe I just feel like a camel due to the fact I have a big hump in my middle.

READING welllllll NOT any child books. And I just sort of realized that perhaps I should do a small refresher on newborn stuff like sleep training and breastfeeding. I really feel pretty confident in most of the stuff that I don’t forget with Henry, but I’m confident that there are information that we forgot in our newborn stupor.

WANTING my body back. I’m so grateful (SO SO BLESSED) to be capable to carry this baby and that she’s on the way, but I definitely feel the toll that a second baby is taking on my physique. It’s uncomfortable bordering on painful at times and I’m truly feeling the strain of carrying around 20 extra pounds. My tailbone aches, my feet are so tender in the mornings I can’t walk properly, and my ligaments are stretching in methods that they just didn’t last time. Ouch.

SLEEPING is annoying. Can we just leave it at that?

WEARING the same maternity garments more than and more than because I refuse to get any a lot more. We can make it ten a lot more weeks in what we have, for crying out loud!

FEELING so excited for the fall, for a little maternity leave, and to just snuggle up and focus on family members toward the end of the year.

LOVING my husband and every single tiny factor he does to try to help our loved ones via a actually crazy season! Pregnancy, renovation, parenting a toddler — we are in the deep finish correct now and he is keeping us all afloat.

Beautiful Certainly

24 Weeks Pregnant

25 weeks and we are fiiiiinally in a sweet spot! I’m not sick, I’m not massive but, my energy is up a little bit, and we’re getting factors prepared for Baby #2. Let’s get into it! xoxo


EATING so considerably breakfast and barely any dinner. I get to the end of the day and meals is just so not fascinating.

DRINKING buckets of ice water but only if the ice is crushed. Do not bother me with that cubed stuff. Ugh.

READING Dan Brown novels at the gym. Due to the fact I’m classy and cultured like that. 😉

WANTING to soak up each and every moment we have with Henry while he’s nonetheless our only tiny nugget.

SLEEPING fairly properly! We’ll revisit this 1 in a handful of weeks — that is when it got difficult last time about. I do wake up every time I have to roll over due to the fact rolling more than now requires a very certain sequence of movements to get the tummy from 1 side to the other.

WEARING my hair up since who cares about performing hair when you are pregnant?!

FEELING SO GRATEFUL that the nausea is gone. Truly, it was beginning to mess with my head. After so numerous months of becoming sick you just neglect what it’s like to feel… not sick. Just standard. I’m so thankful for every single standard-feeling moment when I do not feel something at all.

LOVING looking back at old pictures of Henry and getting excited to do the tiny baby point once again.

Lovely Certainly
