Motherhood,  Second Pregnancy

Bumpdate: 6 months



How Far Along: 6 months
Feeling Physically: I feel okay most of the time. Over the last month or so I have had some hip and pelvic pain. It comes and goes but when it comes…yikes!
Feeling Mentally: Work has been slow which has allowed me to get caught up on some home to-do’s and I am feeling great watching my list get shorter and shorter

Maternity Clothes: Yes
Sleep: I have been sleeping well recently but waking still pretty tired. Asher is blessing us with great, full nights of sleep and I am afraid I might be over sleeping (good problem to have though)
Missing Anything: Still warm weather.
Food Cravings: Over the last week I have been on a big milk kick, which is weird because I don’t really like milk usually. I am also dealing with the whole hungry-but-don’t-know-what-I-want thing.
Gender: GIRL!
Labor signs: none.
Wedding rings on or off: still on.
Looking Forward to: Getting Asher’s room moved around and re-decorated.
Exercise regimen: I have been lifting pretty regularly, though lower weights than before. I have also gotten out for a few runs though my pace is slooooow.
Difference from 1st pregnancy: I feel gigantic! I notice more now just how much room I take up. I can’t imagine what I will look like in a few months. This little lady is also very mobile but her movements are lower than they were with Asher. Asher sat very high and I felt most of his movements mid belly and up but she is kicking low all. the. time.
Favorite part so far: Getting clothes for little lady and watching Asher get excited about a baby sister. He will run over and say “see bellee!” and then he will say “kiss belleee? Hug belleee!” and give my belly a kiss and a hug. I am afraid though, that little lady might be worried about her big brother because she always moves away from whatever side he is hugging on. He is such a great big brother already and I can’t wait to see them together. 

My favorite little man! I can’t believe he is almost 22 months old?!?
