Pregnancy Update: Weeks 24-25

Every week passes by quicker than the last. I can’t believe that in a few short months I will be holding our little one in my arms! Baby Peters is grown like a weed, which is exciting, but a bit concerning, as well. Today I met with my midwife for my routine 26-28 week appointment and I am still measuring ahead of schedule… 4 weeks ahead to be exact. Throughout my pregnancy I have been measuring about 1-2 weeks ahead, which is very normal... Read More

Pregnancy Update: Weeks 17 & 18

I have fallen behind on posting my pregnancy updates and decided to combine weeks 17 and 18 into one post, as today is the last day of week 18!

Honestly, it hasn’t been that bad, it’s simply annoying to feel just slightly off. I have been having very vivid dreams this week,... Read More

Pregnancy update: 15 weeks

Although, having been through this before, I know that this is nothing compared to how I will look and feel come August! My maternity clothes are starting to fit properly, or at least not completely hang off of my body like I am a little girl playing dress up with her mommy’s clothes. I like to feel put together and am just starting to feel like I... Read More

Pregnancy update: 14 weeks

The weeks are flying by! Every day I can feel the bond with my baby increasing in strength. During my first trimester there were times when it was easy to forget for a moment (or a couple hours) that I was pregnant. However, now it has become more of a¬†full-time job. When I look in the mirror, the woman looking back me is definitely pregnant. My pre-pregnancy clothes are too tight or short to wear comfortably and I am beginning to fit into more... Read More
