20ish weeks!


Half way, half way! This pregnancy has been flying by and I haven’t been very good at documenting it So for journaling sake, a quick update on pregnancy with baby #2! 

Gender: GIRL! Haha, such a funny, crazy turn of events! Though after hearing some crazy stories from friends in similar situations, I think I want a third opinion ;)  Ha!

Feeling: Good. Second trimester is my favorite. I still have some round ligament pain (never had that with E!) and sciatica, but neither have been terrible as of late (I’m totally jinxing it, huh?)

Craving: Eggs, beans, cheese, and bagels. So random! Oh, and I guess ice cream could be added to the list. But does it really count if I always crave that, pregnant or not? :) I still tend to avoid cooking chicken, or meat in general, unless it’s in the crock pot…outside. :)

Other random things to note: That nesting stage has kicked in and brought along the intense need to rearrange every room upstairs. ;) I still have one or two pairs of non-maternity jeans that fit and I’m trying to stretch those as long as I can. I switched to maternity pants so early with Ellie and I hated wearing them by the end, haha. Pregnancy brain is in full swing and causes all kinds of trouble (I forget everything!)

IMG_6960 Awkward pose for me, but I was dying laughing when Ellie jumped in the shot and exclaimed “It’s meeee! I here!” Because no photo is complete without our little E :)


  1. I love this spontaneous capture, it's so adorable!

    My Mom told me the doctors told her I was a boy. I still laugh about it.

  2. I can't believe you're still so tiny! Your little bump is just adorable. :) And that Ellie–what a goof! She makes me giggle. :)

  3. Haha, I think I want a third opinion also!! :) Well, either way he / she will be a much loved arrival. Love that sweet Ellie girl and her cute personality. And you!!?? You look amazing!!! You are so tiny!! Keep eating ice cream - and cheese, eggs, etc!! Love you all so much xoxoxoxo

  4. Ahh! You look great!! Congrats on 20 weeks!! :)

  5. That last photo is perfect! I read your post a few days ago and freaked out (we found out we were having a boy when I was 15 weeks). We got a second confirmation that he is indeed a boy just today but it's still just crazy!

  6. You are tiny mama!! I love the picture with Ellie.. Anytime I take my bump picture with her awake, she is sure to join for at least a few. I hope everything keeps going well for you!

  7. Teeny tiny! You look so adorable. I would be wanting a third opinion too after hearing both boy and then girl haha!
