17 weeks pregnant with baby 3 feels so unreal. This time with the girls we were finding out that there were two sweet little girls growing inside me! We know for sure that this baby is just ONE, but we won't find out the gender until the end of August and I'm seriously itching to find out!
I've started to feel more like myself again lately, thank God. I've struggled so much trying to manage my crazy pregnancy hormones and nasty sickness while working, owning a shop, and most importantly, mothering two wild almost two year olds. It has been the challenge of my life and I'm so grateful that Kyle has not only taken on more responsibilities but supported me and my crazy emotions. This pregnancy has been fogged with the pregnancy blues, but I'm grateful to say that I can feel it start to lift. I have more energy lately, I'm not throwing up nearly as much, and I'm starting to feel little babe wiggle and play in my tummy which is always the best of the best feeling ever!
This time I feel like my belly is super low! I don't remember having such a hard time finding clothes to wear with the twins, even at the end when I was MASSIVE. As soon as I hit 10 weeks with this baby I've felt uncomfortable in basically all of my pants, including all my yoga pants (which I wore last time all the way through!). It's so crazy how each pregnancy is so different, this one has been night and day from the last, which makes me really think it's a boy!
We haven't really done much to prepare for this baby yet. I think at 17 weeks last go around I was already packing my hospital bag hehe. This time I feel really confident in my roll as a mother and in my ability to bring this baby into the world. We plan on doing things differently with this baby, I'm hoping to keep them in our room in the bassinette for quite a while. I'm dreaming of waking up for night time feeds and just nursing in bed, and tucking them back into the bassinette when they're done. It was so much more complicated with the twins, so I'm really hoping to just go with the flow with this baby and enjoy the ride.
That's all I can think of for now, I'm so grateful to have these photos by my sister in law to remember this crazy journey! I'm hoping to keep posting more updates, but the next one might not be until the gender reveal!!! Can't wait!
