As I slide through to 21 weeks this week, I had a few moments of panic knowing that I am over the half way mark. Sounds a little silly right? To think about how quickly these first 21 weeks have gone, brings me to the realization that the next will fly by equally if not faster. There’s so much to do before her arrival! Nursery, shower, registry, classes… anyone else feeling this way?
As far as how I am feeling… honestly amazing! If everyday of this pregnancy was like the second trimester, sign me up for 10 children. If it stays this good and we have a great baby, I can see myself wanting another one sooner than later. I am also loving the fact that I no longer look just bloated or fat but PREGNANT. Hallelujah! Embracing the bump all the way over here! See below for a full update.
