So….I don’t really want to go backwards in my pregnancy, but your bump is making me miss the golden days of the second tri. My baby dropped this week, and while I am happy to be able to breathe again…I sort of feel like I have a bowling ball in my pelvis!

Haha and I can’t wait to see what a bowling ball feels like!

Ohhh you’re gonna regret saying that lol. At the end its uncomfortable to sit or stand, it won’t be long and you’ll be looking back wondering where all the time went.

Woooo! Hooray for half way there- as slow as it goes in the moment- it goes fast doesn’t it?! I hear I’ll be singing a different song in August. :)
My tummy is changing daily now- everyone at work noticed how pregnant I looked yesterday. Your bump looks great! :) Congrats again, I send love to you and your little one on being half way through the journey to meeting that little one!

I remember taking my twenty week pic and thinking, “Man, I really look pregnant!!!” You’ll be amazed at how quickly you’ll grow in the next 5 or 6 weeks…you’ll have a bowling ball before you know it!

I can’t believe you’re already halfway! It’s going to fast to me (from the sidelines…haha!)

Cute cloth play food….just adorable!

I’m obsessed with those animal hats from Baby Gap. I love that whole line of clothes, too!

Waw, 20 weeks already! You look SO good!

YAY for halfway there!! My good friend just found out she’s pregnant and I sent her to your blog!! :)

I just wanted to comment on the “halfway there – or less… hopefully not more”. I think it’s important to remember that 40 weeks is just the average gestational period and that plenty of babies need to “cook” longer until 42 weeks (or sometimes even longer). While it is definitely not “convenient” to carry a big belly around for an extra couple of weeks it is important to remember that babies still do a lot of important growing in that last month or so. I think advocating for patient acceptance of the baby’s own timeline in terms of delivery is really important. Just my two cents. (My first was born at 39.5 weeks and my second was born at almost 41 weeks and I thought I was going to go crazy waiting but in the end he needed that long in the belly and I’m happy I didn’t push him to come out earlier.)

I know ;) But I still hope that I won’t have to be induced.

18 kate April 14, 2012 at 1:57 pm

When would your OB induce? I hope not before at least 41.5 weeks. I would refuse to be induced before 42 weeks.

19 KERF April 14, 2012 at 2:00 pm

I’m not sure yet, but I think the current medical practice is not to go past 42 weeks at my office

Hi again Kath! Just wanted to let you know I’m still getting automatic sound from a Resolve ad without hovering over it. The XBox as is working properly, there is no sound until I hover the mouse over it.
Just thought I’d let you know!

Thanks Sarah. I know the team is on it- although sadly maybe not until Monday AM :(

22 Becca April 14, 2012 at 12:44 pm

Same here. Both ads start up as soon as the page is loaded. Rather noisy.

Reply

23 KERF April 14, 2012 at 1:24 pm

I know, I’m sorry – on it

24 Steph April 14, 2012 at 7:12 pm

hurray for old computers without sufficient plug-ins for the ads to load! haha

25 Molly @ RDexposed April 14, 2012 at 2:08 pm

Love the play vegetables!

26 Anne April 14, 2012 at 9:29 pm

Most first-timers DO go over 40 weeks. I went to 42w3d even though I tried every natural induction in the book. The average pregnancy for a first-time mom is 41w3d!

I can relate to the feelin’ rounder part :) My belly seems huge for almost 18 or so weeks.

I cannot believe how “flat” your belly still is at 20 weeks – all that working out is really making a difference, I’m sure. I love the belly shots and I love following along. I can’t wait to read your updates when the baby is born.

Lookin’ good!!!

Youre going to be SO happy that you’ve worked out throughout your entire pregnancy…I did the same and it helped with the labour (you need abs to push! Lol!) and I bounced back right after the delivery..literally! (the nurse told me not to tell anyone that my stomach was flat right after the delivery!!!) Is it genes or was it the working out???! I’m praying it’s Iike that the second time around!

31 Antonia @ healthinspirations April 15, 2012 at 9:24 am

Congrats…can’t believe how fast time has flown already. You look absolutely amazing. Love those vegetables in the nursery. I can already tell that your baby is going to be a very healthy little boy :)

Where’d you get those veggies? They’re awesome.
