My Belly is Growing!

Well, I'm officially at the point in my pregnancy when people start to question my due date. They'll ask when I'm due, I say November, they say "really? It's not sooner because you are so big!" Seriously people. That is not something you say to a pregnant woman!! But, I just gotta roll with it right? It happened when I was pregnant with Lily too. I just get big and I think I make big babies. Even though Lily was 3 1/2 weeks early, she still weighed 7 lbs! Just think what she would've been had I gone to term with her! I'm also at the point where it hurts to bend over to do anything-whether it's putting on my shoes, putting on Lily's shoes, picking up toys, etc. And I can't see my feet when I stand up straight and look down. I've been having braxton-hicks contractions like crazy. I was freaked out at first, but my doctor said it's completely normal to be feeling them this early, especially since it's my second pregnancy. And sleeping is hard already! It's too soon for this! I toss and turn all night and by morning my back is killing me. But, the best part about being pregnant is feeling this boy move! I'm not sure if it's just him or if all boys are like this, but he is so active. Way more active than Lily was. It's non-stop movement from him. Whether I'm just sitting around, or eating, driving in my car, and even sleeping, he is moving! I do love it! And with all of these things I'm still SO THANKFUL to be pregnant and I can't wait to meet our son!

Me and baby boy at 20 weeks-actually, I think this was taken at 21 weeks because we forgot to take a picture the week before!

And at 24 weeks-this was taken last week! Ok, do you see how HUGE I am in just 3 weeks time?!! Crazy. This is gonna be a big boy.....and that makes me kinda scared! But God's in control! :)

Yay Fun! I love the moving part too! Sometimes I wish I was getting the big comments. Instead I get..."You are already 25 weeks?? You are so small!!" That just makes me think my baby isn't growing enough!! Come on people can't you keep your growth comments to yourself? Haha :) You look great by the way! I think pregnancy is cute no matter what.
