This was actually from week 16, I'm just too lazy to put on a bra right now to take a picture lol
Hello, everyone! I've come to the conclusion that I haven't documented this pregnancy as well as I think I should be. When I got pregnant, I thought I would be one of those future Moms who does all she possibly can to get ready for the upcoming pregnancy by reading books, staying to a strict diet, researching all of the best gadgets and equipment....But...eh, well let's just say I've been a little lax on all that hehe.
I mean, of course I have been careful. I have been making a steady list of things I need, things I already have. It's been going good. Great, actually. I've heard stories from other ladies about their pregancies, and how they went less than smoothly. This pregnancy has been going very smoothly. So smoothly, in fact, sometimes I wonder if something is just waiting to go terribly wrong...
But I'm just going to toss those worries aside and just be grateful that this little bud inside me is growing fine and nicely. There's nothing that a new Mom would want more than to have an easy pregnancy, so I'm just going to keep trucking along and counting my blessings. Here is a few extra pregnancy facts I'd like to update you guys on.
Where is baby in Development?: I'm going to be in my 20th week soon. My little one is about the size of a tomato right now, about 6 inches long. Some movements here and there, but just little flutters and pokes sometimes. Next week we will find out the gender and I feel like that's when all the preparation can really take off. I'm thinking it's going to be a boy, but we'll seeeee!
Pregnancy Symptoms?: Some back pain. Probably from sitting too long at work. I need to get up and take little strolls more often. Also, I'm waking in the middle of the night to pee almost consistently.
Maternity Clothes? Stretch Marks?: My mom generously bought me my first pair of maternity leggings last weekend, and I am praising her name for it! I looove them. I'm telling everyone I know that I should have just been buying these before. They're just so freakin' comfy. No stretch marks yet! I'd like to think that it's because of my consistent coconut butter applications, but it's probably still to come...
Food Cravings?: Oh my gosh, I feel like I'm eating every freakin' hour, but the things that I'm really craving are...Mexican Pizzas from Taco Bell and anything with avocados. This little one has been all about the Mexican food, but nothing too spicy!
That's it for now! I'm going to try to do more of these little updates. Hopefully, this can be a place where I can get all my thoughts and excitements down and really savor the whole experience. I mean, you are only pregnant for the first time once. Everything is new and fascinating right now and I want to make sure I keep track of my true feelings and emotions. I wish to have something to look back on and know how I felt and how excited I was when I have a little minion attached to me hehe.
Have a good day!
