So, I am a bad pregnant lady because I have not been documenting the belly growth very well! I have heard from several of you ladies that you want to see the belly! Well, I shall show you today.
I am frustrated at myself for not taking weekly pictures. I really wanted to….but got busy and forgot. Really there is nothing to take pictures of in the early weeks anyway right?!
Here I am at a church event…..i’m pregnant but have no idea yet!!!! That is so fun looking back on pictures where Eleanor was sneakily growing inside of me!
So you can’t see my belly in this pic…..but we were on a camping trip in early September and I had no idea I was pregnant! I was very suspicious though. I was late and felt really awful. We found out the day after our camping trip! :)
So yeah….I didn’t take a belly pic until about 16 weeks! lol! Here I am on my birthday (nov. 28th) 16 weeks pregnant. Of course Maddie had to be in the picture. She always does. :) There was some definite roundness going on but not full on belly.
I took this in the bathroom at church one morning! It was about 17 weeks. Please note: It is rather hard to take a cell phone bathroom picture while not making a weird face. I have yet to master this! So my apologies.
I took this one in the bathroom at work! ha! I was about 18 weeks. And I was so excited cause I really looked pregnant in this picture!!!!! I texted this picture to Tim after I took it and he said he looked at it all day. :)
Here I am on Christmas day about 19 weeks. It’s hard to tell in this picture since I wore black. But the belly is there for sure!
Alright….another bathroom pic at work at about 20 weeks. I like these types of shirts with the side ruching cause they make my belly look round. (this is probably one of the only times in my life i will say that! haha!)
Bathroom work picture at 22 weeks (which is this week!) so you are now all up to date! This week has been a game changer for the belly. I woke up Monday and felt like it looked wayyyyy bigger! They say it just happens like that. It’s so funny.
Random Pregnancy Thoughts:
(since I have been bad & haven’t done weekly updates!)
*The first trimester wasn’t too shabby. I was only sick until about week 10….and I was able to hold back on the throwing up part! I was super nauseous though. And all I wanted to do was sleep! That part was soooooo crazy! I would come home from work and CRASH on the couch. I felt like a lazy bum.
*I really have not had any food aversions. I hated salad for a few weeks….but that was it.
*I haven’t craved anything except pizza! Give me pizza….lots of it!!!!!!!!!! :o)
*However, I did buy a jar of dill pickles to eat as a snack. Husband gave me a weird look like “here come the cravings”. But I don’t think it was a craving. It just sounded like a yummy snack. I dunno!
*I have not missed anything at all. Expect maybe drinking route 44’s from sonic and eating cookie dough ice cream! But that is it. Oh and maybe sleeping on my tummy. That was sad to give up. But I would do anything or Eleanor!
*The ultrasound was the most amazing thing of my life!!!!!!!!!!!!! Geez I could not stop crying! The ultrasound tech kept asking me if I was ok. It was just so incredible to see our baby girl on that screen after all these years. I can’t describe the feeling. But I couldn't stop the water works.
*Humidifier…..I LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
*I keep trying to like the bella band. But it really annoys me since I go to the bathroom all.the.time! I feel like I never have it in a good position and I’m always messing with it. I should just be allowed to wear sweats everyday.
*Mr. Tim is the most amazing pregnancy husband in the world! The man keeps me calm and sane. He does everything in his power to make me feel comfy and happy. He is so very precious.
*Speaking of Mr. Tim….he has started having us go in Eleanor’s room to pray for her everyday. It is such a special time! Cue the water works again. Oh I’ll just say it….I CRY ALL THE TIME! There, I said it.
*Being honest…..I am deathly afraid of taking the glucose test. I’m afraid of the test and scared of having GD.
I will end the pregnancy update there for now!
Consider yourself up-to-date!!!!!!!
