Moving Right Along

This pregnancy is moving right along pretty quickly.  It’s actually starting to make me nervous how fast the time is going by.  We’ve definitely grown since the last time I shared the belly update, at 20 weeks.

It seems like everytime I look at the calendar, I’m adding another week to my pregnancy. sends me an email every week telling me what’s new for the week in my pregnancy and according to them, my uterus is the size of a soccer ball.  Nice.

To answer a few questions I get from friends:

How am I feeling?  I actually feel great!  I think my body just handles pregnancy well.  So far.  I can still chase after the boys and since they think it’s funny to run from me, I’m running short sprints on an almost daily basis. Hey, it’s exercise, right?  :)

Do we have a name?  No, no first name yet.  We’ve only touched on the subject a couple of times and we haven’t found one we can both agree on.  Honestly, we haven’t made it a priority.  Langston and Riverson were both named just a couple of weeks before they were born.  Riverson’s middle name {Pierce} wasn’t decided on until right after he was born.  We’re procrastinators, I guess, when it comes to the “name” department.

However, her middle name was decided a LONG time ago.  Growing up, I always said if I had a little girl, I would give her my middle name, Marie.  It’s also my mom’s middle name and that makes it even more special to me.  Jeff knew it was a non-negotiable.  We didn’t even discuss it.  He just knew. :)

Do the boys know/get it yet?  No.  I tell Langston all of the time, especially when he’s banging on my belly with his hands, that there’s a baby in there.  He just laughs at me.

Feeling movements?  Oh yeah!  I’ve started to become more aware of the hiccups, which are frequent.  My belly is also starting to jump at night, with her kicks.  It’s fun to watch.

Whenever I mention my due date {August 1st} to someone, they always say, “Oh man, you have to go through the summer.”  I actually think I’d rather be pregnant in the summer and looking large on purpose instead of having to worry about looking cute/sucking in in my bathing suit.  We’ll be spending most of our time in the pool anyway, but if she was due before the summer, I probably wouldn’t have her out in the heat much, anyway.  Not to mention, I had Langston at the beginning of the summer, and I had no desire to put my post-baby body in a bathing suit that summer.

I’m good with this due date.

Of course, now that I say this, I will probably be absolutely miserable all summer. :)

      Thanks Shannon! I’m going to guess that you meant she was due August 1st or that you had her on July 4th. I HOPE??? I would hate to think you went one month past your due date!! :)

    Good point on the bathing suit pregnant vs flabby post baby belly. I’m 4 months post baby & dreading the swimsuit. Kind of wish I was pregnant again so I’d have some excuse to look “big”. There are both perks & downfalls to being pregnant in the summer!! :)

    I am a week behind you. Until recently, I could almost forget I was pregnant, but the baby kicks are strong now. I’m not scared to carry in the summer either. Everyone says the same thing to me. We shall see!

    We’ll be fine, right?!? Isn’t it crazy how each pregnancy goes by faster and faster. I think it’s because we are not sitting and counting the days like we were the first time around. :)

    Well, you look fabulous and I’m thrilled you’re doing the pics. Though I will say it seems like you JUST announced this!

    Marie is a family name in my family. I’ve always thought it was so feminine and dainty. Can’t wait to hear what ya’ll decide on!

  14. Well I admit my first thought was “Ugh summer heat” but I do get the whole looking belly big on purpose rather than feeling the need to suck it in. But I also say that knowing I spend 90% of my summer in business suits so the concept of a belly + business suit + GA heat / humidity would make me sob. You look gorgeous though!
