Stripes, dots and bows! Is this a trend in my wardrobe? It seems to be. It’s not particularly on purpose but I must be drawn to them.
These photos are me at 22 weeks. But today it’s 25. That’s just crazy! I’m really starting to pop! Isn’t pregnancy like a roller coaster? You’re excited after standing in line so long. You go up, you want to throw-up going down. Then up you go again. Then into the station and that’s the 2nd trimester. Then you are all aches and pains.
If I could suggest anything for some relief, get a prenatal massage. They use a pregnancy pillow that’s pretty amazing. It will be one of the best things you can do for yourself. It’s little bit of 60 minute heaven! Your baby will want you to do this.
I am a very little person with a baby that seems to have no room! Get a body pillow. My ligaments and pregnancy backaches have been complaining painfully. No sleep and really grumpy in the morning. But now thanks to to a body pillow from a sympathetic friend, I am sleeping better.
This little boy moves all day long, his sharp tiny heels and elbows are always trying to poke out of my belly. Is this going to be daddy’s soccer buddy? Sometimes I wonder what he’s doing in there, aerobics? Lunges? Dancing? Either way, he’s always letting me know he’s there and I love it. I can feel my heart grow five sizes bigger as he continues to develop. I can’t wait to meet him. I am lucky he sleeps when I sleep, but who knows how long that will last! Pregnancy is hard. But I guess we wouldn’t appreciate those little tiny babies unless it was work. And I’m told we quickly forget our pain and suffering once we see the sparkle in our babies eyes.
Am I going to be tempted to dress this baby in stripes and dots too?
