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 19-23

Yikes! It has been way too long since I officially posted an update on the little munchkin steadily growing inside of me. The most exciting thing that has happened in the last few weeks, pregnancy related or not, was having our second ultrasound. I know that it is becoming quite popular to hold off on finding out the sex of baby until birth. Some mamas state that it helped to motivate them during labor, others are simply excited about the anticipation. I... 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! Remember when I mentioned in my week 16 post that I was having vivid dreams about feeling the baby kick on the outside of my belly? As it turns out, I might NOT have been dreaming, because on week 17 day 3 we started feeling the baby kick on the outside of my belly! All day I kept thinking to myself some... Read More

Pregnancy update: 16 weeks

I appologize in advance for the pics in this post, I completely forgot to have Allan take an official week 16 belly pic. What you see are the best photos that I have from dyeing Easter eggs on Friday. I caught a little cold this week. I believe I had the same virus that caused Matthew’s bout with croup. 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

Welcome to week 15, my little one! When I look in the mirror I feel like I look very pregnant. 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

13 Weeks

Welcome to the last week of the first trimester! I would like to put together an update of my first trimester soon, I just need to find the time to sort through all of our pics and find good belly shots to share, as I didn’t start taking purposeful pics of my belly until this week. This week I can feel my energy levels increasing and nausea subsiding. We spent part of week 13 in Gulf Shores, Alabama, visiting my mother- and father-in-law, who... Read More
