Maternity Monday: 17-18 Weeks

#MaternityMonday #thelovelygeek

AKA the size of a sweet potato or artichoke. Rocking my Three29 shirt since I celebrated my two year anniversary this past week. #18weeks #babybump #bumpwatch #secondtrimester

This past week I spent most of my time working out the details for our gender reveal party. I sent out the invites this morning (keeping it really small, close family and friends), and I’m really proud of how the cover photo for the event turned out. ๐Ÿค—

We have it scheduled for the end of the month because of certain family members being in town. And for those who can’t make it we’ll do a Facebook Live of the reveal.

Summer came in full force this week, so I had to pick up a new swim suit since my other ones don’t fit me anymore. I got a super cute one from Target and it even makes the baby bump flattering. It’s not maternity or plus size, but it fits loosely enough that I think it will hold me over through the summer season.

Yesterday (Father’s Day) was bittersweet because it would have been my original due date. Even though I am pregnant again, I still can’t shake would could have been with the first one. A few days prior, I woke up from a dream (damn those vivid pregnancy dreams) where I started bleeding. It felt so real, and I think it had to do with the lingering anxiety around my original due date coming up.

The good news is a few days later I had another dream where my baby was a girl; she had dark hair with blue eyes and we dressed her up as Wonder Woman for Halloween. ๐Ÿคฃ   Definitely more positive than the first one!

Aside from the dreams and my clothes gradually not fitting, I’m feeling pretty good. Tired as per usual and feeling a lot of movement from baby! It’s such a crazy cool feeling!
