On Saturday I’ll be 20 weeks pregnant…and this is my first “bump update” post. As you can tell, I’m doing a realllllly fantastic job documenting this pregnancy…(insert gritted teeth emoji). I was feeling a little guilty about it recently, but then I realized that I could only think of one particular picture of my mom when she was pregnant with me. And do I feel cheated? Is my life somehow incomplete because of it?
And I doubt this kid will either! Phew!
That being said, I did get my act together yesterday to take a bump picture…so you’d better believe I’m going to share it! Something’s better than nothing, right?!?
Per usual, my long torso has taken over and hidden our little heirloom tomato away. Strangers don’t know I’m pregnant unless Nash lifts up my shirt and says “where mommy’s baby?” Because that happened once at Target. Yep. I also feel like the style has changed since I was pregnant with Nash. I’m wearing more loose, flowy tops than form-fitting maternity wear…therefore, the bump is usually hidden. One of these days though, I’ll look more pregnant and less “bloated”. Or maybe just both 😉
We got to see our little lady at the anatomy scan yesterday and it was wonderful. I think I could have 20 kids and that ultrasound would never lose its magic. I go through so much of the day not really thinking about the baby, that it totally blew my mind to see her moving around and resting with her hand on her forehead, just like our other kids do. Golly…babies are such a miracle!
I told Arden that I’d have some pictures of the baby to show her when I picked her up from school yesterday. And of course, that’s the first thing she asked about when I saw her (she doesn’t forget anything!) She was so excited about this little profile picture that she asked for tape so she could hang it up in her room. Later I found another one taped to the mirror in my closet. Oh that girl…
Now that the gender has been double-confirmed, I want to start getting serious about the nursery. Of course that means moving Nash into the guest room, which I’m feeling a little bit sappy about right now. I mean, he’s still my baby for 20 more weeks!
Anyway, I’ve only bought one thing for the nursery so far. But it’s a good one…
I’m hoping to do a shiplap accent wall, with this unicorn over the crib. I just need to convince Chris of all of it–since he’s my handyman and all. But seriously, when is shiplap NOT a good idea?!?
Well I think that’s all the baby updates I have for now! I promise not to go another 20 weeks before another one! I think… 😉
