Aaaaand, we’re back in action with the baby bump updates. And this week Max is joining in :) The biggest update for this week is that Baby #2 is now kicking nonstop, so hard some times that my belly jumps and you can see it. With my second pregnancy I feel like the baby’s movement is more frequent, which is super fun. Feeling kicks is such a precious part of pregnancy. It’s unlike anything else. Something else I’m noticing is the extreme tiredness I felt in the first trimester –it’s found its way back into my life. It’ll be mid-day and you can find me yawning while talking, ha.
I’ve begun making a few changes to our lifestyle to accommodate my growing bump, like pulling the stroller up the staircase one step at a time, instead of carrying it. Things definitely feel different this time around (bigger, hungrier, sore, and all quicker) and I’m basically on the edge of my seat, curious whether baby #2 is a little girl or little boy. In four weeks I’ll be in my final trimester and there aren’t really words to describe how that feels… aside from “that’s pretty awesome” :)
Let’s talk about clothing for a minute! I’m on the lookout for a jersey skirt sewing tutorial that will fit a baby bump. My pre-pregnancy shorts still fit me but come late-afternoon they get uncomfortable, and fast. If you know of any tutorials would you leave a link below in the comments? The skirt I’m wearing here isn’t maternity but it’s pretty stretchy in the waist therefore it’s SO VERY COMFORTABLE. I’m also searching for a couple supplemental nursing shirts and/or cardigan wraps. This time around I’ll have a cute toddler boy to keep my eyes on while nursing, so I’m looking for some extra clothing that’ll keep me covered but will give me quick/easy access. Do you have any favorite nursing pieces?
So that’s it! :) I’m really feeling great and the weeks are seriously going by lightening fast.
Oh, and PS. the cravings will not stop (what does that even mean???).
