I am not kidding when I say the weeks are flying by. It’s hard to believe we’re almost halfway through this pregnancy!
See the bump?
No? Maybe from this angle…
I know it doesn’t look like much but trust me, it’s there.
I’ve already noticed some funny differences from my first pregnancy to this one. For instance, during my first pregnancy, I couldn’t wait to wear maternity clothes and actually started wearing them way sooner than I needed to. This time? I’m resisting them for all they’re worth. Well, tops that is. I have succumbed to the wonderfully stretchy waistband of maternity pants. But when it comes to dresses and tops, I’m still trying to wear tops that are “regular tops” but just happen to have room for my expanding belly. The top in the photo above? I found it at the Ann Taylor Factory Outlet last Friday for just $7.50. Sweet! It will make a great nursing tank too.
Other differences? Not obsessing over every single little twinge or strange feeling. I felt like a nervous wreck during my first pregnancy. This time around, I’m feeling much more laid back! Maybe that means this baby will be laid back too? A mom can hope.
My biggest pregnancy frustration so far? Doctor’s offices. Mine specifically. I absolutely LOVED my OB in St Petersburg and wish she could deliver this baby too. But driving an hour while in labor probably won’t sound like such a keen idea down the road so I’m in the process of finding a new OB in my new town. The problem? Paperwork. It has been a paperwork nightmare to get my file transferred down from the old office. I think we might have gotten it figured out today. Keeping my fingers crossed!
Weight Gained: No idea. My scale is in storage.
Current Cravings: Sweet tea! Oh and Chick-fil-A milkshakes. Too bad we don’t have a Chick-fil-A in my new town…
Favorite Workout: This prenatal yoga video. It has been doing wonders for my hips!
Sleep Habits: In bed around 10pm, up around 6:30am with the Mini Athlete. I’m requiring a minimum of 8 hours of sleep a night right now!
For those of you who have had more than one pregnancy – were your pregnancies pretty different or fairly similar experiences?
