You guys, today is a big day as we’re officially two days past the halfway mark of a pregnancy: 20 weeks. I seem to have a huge surge in energy and am soooo enjoying it, but I need to remember to slow down a couple days each week and rest while Max is napping. Even if I’m doing something simple for myself — like embroidering or writing a blog post — doing that with my feet up and at naptime is way better than sitting at the kitchen table at naptime. I feel way more rested (and ready to tackle the crazy leading up to bedtime) when my feet are off the floor. In my opinion, mopping and kitchen cleanup needs to happen when Max is awake. Naptime is my time ;)
Zack and I have been talking more and more about our goals for delivery. I had a last-minute c-section with Maxwell, and there are a few things we’d like to do differently this time around. Our families are booking airfare for their extended stays to help with baby #2, I’m starting to make mental lists of the items I loved using post-pregnancy in addition to little decorating touches while they’re here. Relatedly, the BeBand continues to be one of my favorite pregnancy items. Have you ever used one? It’s perfect for extending my non-maternity pants and shorts since I can’t zip them anymore. I have a black and white BeBand and wear it over my hips and belly.
No baby kicks to report just yet, but I keep thinking back to the first time I felt Maxwell kick (at 22 weeks). It’s definitely something we’re looking forward to :)
And that’s it! Twenty weeks, you are off to a fabulous start. I heart you and the little baby you are representing.
Outfit details: red striped tank is Old Navy (less than $6), indigo skinnies are from Target — neither are maternity. I highly recommend you add a 2-pack of BeBands to easily create a maternity wardrobe. (Affiliate links are used in this post.)
