19 weeks

So, weekly belly shots might be a little ambitious. How about every so often belly shots?


The bangs are being grown out. Thank you to the wise previously pregnant with bangs ladies who pointed out that NOW would be the time to grow them when my hair is growing approximately 1/4″ per day. (As evidenced by v. long hair above, that desperately needs to be cut.)

I can’t put my finger on it, except to say that I just feel it more this time. Last time I breezed through pregnancy with nary a twinge until the very end. This time it’s slightly more of a slog. But perhaps my expectations weren’t realistic and this is just normal.

Lots of tiny baby kickings already! It’s true! You really do feel the kicks much earlier the second time around. It’s pretty fun.

And Dashie is going through a particularly happy and excited phase right now. I mean, he’s always been a pretty happy guy, but he’s pushing even his limits. It’s adorable. And he loves his Ostheimer animals, btw. The giraffe makes a perfect tunnel for one of his little trains.

    You are so beautiful… and one of those women who’s “all belly,” I see! (I hope I’m like that, one day…)

    I just found out my VERY best friend is pregnant (with her first child!); it’s so exciting! I’ve been smiling ever since I got the phone call with the news! I’m still a little surprised, amazed, in awe. YAY for babies! xoxo.

    You look so cute and I love the bangs. I’m so glad you enjoyed your time in Austin last week. My hubby and I moved to Austin 3.5 years ago and feel blessed with our decision. It’s truly a magically alive and unique city.

    utterly gorgeous. i think that the bangs look incredible, but, I couldn’t keep up with the trims, so you might be onto something with growing them out while pregnant.

    and that is a great shirt – looks sooo comfortable, but damn that’s pricey.

  17. Jamie said on January 31, 2012

    I agree with Celia…girl! It really seems that girls give you that pregnant feeling more than boys do. And GENIUS to that little tidbit about growing your bangs. Maybe I will give long(ish) hair a try next time around.

    Hi! I came across your blog in a pregnant google search and is it weird to ask where you got your top?? I really like it as a maternity top and those are hard to find!
    You are super cute by the way : )
