Team blue/pink/green: 💙💙💙
Upcoming appointments: We just had our 20 week ultrasound yesterday! Hubby was thrilled he could be there too and we were just over the moon after seeing our baby boy!💙 Next appointment won’t be until the new year!
How are you feeling? Overall I feel (cautiously) good! I think I’ve finally hit that 2nd trimester sweet spot where I have more energy, more appetite, and I feel like I can soak it in an enjoy the little miracle I’m growing! And I have to admit, I have never felt more sexy and feminine than I do right now! My curves, my filling breasts, my rounding baby belly— it all just makes me feel so divinely feminine, so empowered and amazed at what my body can do! 🥰
Rants/raves: I’ve had so many positives this past week! One rant I do have though is about our house that we’re building— at this point we’re really not sure it’ll be done before the baby arrives. I’m trying to mentally and physically prepare now for bringing the baby home to our condo before making the big move.
Questions: Has anyone moved homes either late pregnancy or with a newborn? Which do you think would be easier?
@monstera13 @shlecks @dinomeetsjedi Good luck at all of your ultrasounds tomorrow! It’s so incredible to see how much they’ve grown in such a short time!❤️ So excited to see all of our babies growing in the ultrasound thread!
@aloha_mama Not sure if this will offer the same support you’re looking for, but I’ve used an SI belt that I got before becoming pregnant, when I first began having terrible SI joint dysfunction. It was only about $27 from Amazon and it’s held up great! Everything always seems more expensive when it’s charged through insurance, and my guess is you’d be able to find a pretty good quality one on Amazon that’ll last you a while. The one our pelvic floor therapist recommends is the Serola SI belt, which I think is around $50.
@missa_lyssa Happy birthday! That cake sounds amazing and I might need to steal the recipe for my birthday this year!!
@dinomeetsjedi So exciting that she’s starting to move so consistently! My anxiety levels have plummeted since I’ve started feeling him kick consistently. I feel like he’s just reassuring me, “I’m okay Mama!” It’s nice to have that piece of mind and so exciting to have that reminder that there’s an actual human growing in there!
