26 Weeks [Round Two]

We had, what will probably be, our last ultrasound yesterday.
It was at a different doctor’s office so the machine was a little bit more high tech,
which made it more fun, and we got a few more pictures of the little nugget.
The common consensus from everyone is that it is a boy.
I tend to go back and forth, depending on the day, which makes it fun.
However, I always call the baby a “he”… I’m not sure why, but it’s just a habit now.

When Kenley saw this picture she immediately said “baby”, which I thought was interesting.


We got good news from the doctor yesterday and I have been cleared to resume activities!
I’m not sure how much activity I’m going to be wanting to do over the next 14 weeks,
but I’m planning on resuming prenatal yoga classes, at the very least.



I cannot believe how much I’ve popped out in the last three weeks!
I knew I felt bigger, but wow!

I got to partake in my one hour glucose test today which was thrilling.
Crossing my fingers that I pass with flying colors!

At this point, I’m just trying to make it to August when my class is over (one more week!),
so I probably won’t update until we hit our third trimester.
I’m not even sure how that is possible, but we’re just a few weeks shy at this point.
I promise I will be sharing our nursery progress & inspiration soon…hopefully.
Thanks for hanging in there with me.

25 Weeks [Round Two]

I can’t believe it’s been three weeks since my last update.
A lot has happened. The short rundown is that we celebrated the
4th of July, our 5 year anniversary, and went on vacation!

There were also a slew of doctor’s appointments and ultrasounds in there too.
Each day I am realizing more and more that the whole “every pregnancy is different
saying is absolutely, positively true. From the surprise of getting pregnant,
to the weird pregnancy symptoms and random cravings.
On top of that, I have been seeing a lot of my doctor, more than last time,
but we’ve also gotten to see more of little baby G2 in the process,
which I am not complaining about!

Here are some shots of our last ultrasound at 23 weeks, including our first 4D ultrasound!





Upon seeing the pictures, my mom swears it’s a boy because he/she looks just like my brother.
Again, it’s still killing people that we don’t know, but you will be happy to know that
I stood very strong during our last ultrasound…especially since it was just me!
I willingly looked away each time she told me that she was moving towards the lower half of the body.
At this point, I am determined not to find out. It’s getting fun!

Overall, this second trimester has been going well… going FAST, but going well.
At first, 25 weeks doesn’t sound that bad, but last night it dawned on me that we
only have 15 weeks left… which caused a little big of anxiety.
I am feeling good, most of the time, but also starting to feel very large.
Very. large.
I know that I still have a long way to go, but this past week I have felt ginormous.

The progress in the nursery and the baby name department has stalled.
I have been teaching a class for the past 4 weeks, which has been a lot,
so a lot of other projects around the house have stalled too. I only have two more
weeks of class and one long to-do list started for the month of August.
I am hoping to post some of our nursery inspiration then.

Hopefully I’ll be back next week with some evidence of my growing belly,
I’ve been slacking in that department!

19 Weeks {Round 2}

We were able to see baby G2 yesterday at our 19 week ultrasound!
I could sit there for hours and just watch baby move around in there.
We got some good pictures and everything with baby looks great!



We went into the ultrasound planning to not find out the gender,
and even after a minor freak out on my part, we stayed strong.
Greg made a good point that it would be silly to make a last minute decision
in the moment that we may regret later. If we decide later to find out, then ok,
but we were not going to find out yesterday. Decision made. Shew!
Turns out, baby was in on it too. Our doctor doesn’t even know
because the little booger’s legs were crossed the entire time.
As of now, there is no risk of anyone mistakenly revealing the gender to us.



I am feeling so good right now and I am so thankful for that.
No food aversions at all… actually quite the opposite. I will eat anything and everything in sight and I have no problem doing so.
I am off the juice kick and have still been chugging water because the “dying of thirst” continues.
I have minor aches and pains here or there,
but overall, I’m really loving the second trimester, just like last time.
I appreciate all the comments and “welcomes” to the yoga community
and I am happy to say that I’ve been to two Hatha mix classes since my last post that I really enjoyed.
Unfortunately, I’ve been put on pelvic rest, low activity & no lifting, etc.
for at least 5-6 weeks, so yoga (and many, many other activities) are off the table.
Major bummer.
