We're in Month 6! I totally thought that meant I was in my third trimester, but apparently that's not until week 28.
Louie seems to have a schedule already: lots of movement from 6-8pm and from 5-7am everyday. I'm hoping he sticks to this schedule, but we all know babies do what they want cuz, you know, they rule. Right now, I'm trying my hardest to stay as active as I can since I'll probably be gaining weight rather quickly in the next few months. By active, I really mean just getting my 10,000 steps in on my FitBit. I've totally been slacking and barely making 5,000 a day (bad lazy!). Plus, stretching and my yoga DVD should probably be thrown in the mix.
I got a bit self-conscious this past week when I met two expecting mothers that were already in their 34th week, but were much smaller than I am. I know it's ridiculous to compare myself to other women, especially now, but sometimes I just can't help it. I've never been a skinny-mini kind of gal to begin with, so it's silly to think I would be now. Hey, as long as Louie and I are feeling healthy, that's all that matters, right?
As strange and vain as it may seem, doing outfit posts actually make me feel better. Yeah, my hips are wider, but they should be! Child-bearin' hips! Then I see Louie slowly growing, and well, that's all kinds of cool. I have no idea how our bodies do it, seriously. I'm not doing anything, it's all science. Still, here it is: proof that lil' Lou is getting ready for the world and I love it. It's all about enjoying your own individual pregnancy, and appreciating your own unique journey with your child. You'd think by my second pregnancy, I'd know that by now! Haha!
