My twenties weeks in my pregnancy! Not quite the halfway mark. (My theory is you find out your pregnant at 4 weeks +/- pregnant so halfway between 4 and 40 is 22 weeks pregnant - get that?) But who's counting?
I still have a LOOOOOONNNNNNG way. No light at the end of the tunnel yet. I feel GREAT. Best pregnancy yet. Though I'm starting to feel a little more full. And fluffy. I know, weird. That's the best word I have to describe it. You body changes so much in the second and third trimester. Your blood volume doubles. You gain (or regain) assets all over the place. I'm just starting to feel it all.
I think I'm starting to show a little. Not quite enough where people want to ask me yet (no one has the nerve yet). But a little birdie snapped off a "bump photo" the other day while she was supposed to be snapping Olivia.
This is after a big lunch. And I think my back is arched quite a bit. But still...the beginnings of a hump. Though in the other pictures of me that day.....notta. So the bump comes and goes as it pleases.
But hopefully this shirt will clear things up for some.
The bag boy at Publix got a kick out of it the other day. And then proceeded to ask me if it really was true. Um...hello!? Why would I wear it if wasn't true!? I'm hoping my workout class will get the message. We're all workout "buddies" but not friends enough for the pregnancy to come up in conversation. And I'm sure I'm looking a bit rounder to them....and wondered why I don't lay on my stomach anymore. But I kinda want them to know so they don't think I'm a wuss since I'm not pounding it out quite as hard anymore. I swear, I think it's something about the doubling blood volume that makes it SO much harder to keep a cardio workout up. But I'm still trying...and that counts, right?
One more thing. I'm really looking forward (I say that now) to the all the
But don't worry, I'm sure I'll let you know all the insane comments I'm getting! And the creative responses I give...HA! One of the wonderful perks of pregnancy!
