halfway – then and now
I’m now 20 weeks and 3 days pregnant, which is just over halfway through this pregnancy (I actually had Holden at 39 weeks, so I could technically be more than halfway, but you get me).
Here’s a then-and-now shot so you can see how my belly is progressing this time around.
I don’t know if I mentioned before, but I used The Belly Book: A Nine-Month Journal for You and Your Growing Belly during my first pregnancy and I bought myself another one for this pregnancy because I’ve found it to be a great tool to record the weekly happenings of being knocked up.
Looking back on my first pregnancy, I can see that I was just starting to feel the baby move at 20 weeks, my belly had just started to pop out and my gums were bleeding like I was Dracula.
This time around, I feel the baby move pretty regularly, the belly has been out for quite a while and my gums are relatively blood-free.
During my first pregnancy, I took a photo every week with the fruit or vegetable that represented the baby’s size that week. I’m totally slacking on that this time around, but in case you’re wondering… the baby is a banana this week!
And yes, I had my 20-week ultrasound today. Yes, I found out the sex of the baby. No, I’m not telling you what it is yet; you’ll have to wait until Sunday!
