Kick Push

19 weeks baby ultrasound

Since I’ve hit my 23 week mark, our little baby girl has been stealing quite the spotlight. Just this past Sunday, Brian felt her kick for the very first time! Sadly, we couldn’t do our happy dance nor shout hooray since it was during the sacrament meeting at church (those church goers will never know what they’ve missed). It was quite a special moment for us. I’ve been anxiously waiting for Brian to feel her move instead of me describing it to him and Brian has been quite a patient daddy.

I sure hope to forever remember how special and magical the feeling of having a little human being grow inside of me. It’s honestly freakish, alien- like and yet so miraculous and beautiful all at the same time. It’s hard not to feel blessed and loved whenever I feel her kick which is pretty frequent lately. It’s been difficult to sit behind the desk because that’s when she constantly moves. And so, I always have to shake my knees and such to calm her down. I sure can’t wait to see her little dance moves.

I don’t have an updated baby bump photo yet so here goes some photos from my 20-21 weeks 🙂

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! Just want to do a quick update before I start making dinner…

Brian and I had the chance to visit with my in-laws in Tennessee. We brought Samson along with us for his very first road trip and it was quite a success!

I also survived my very first road trip being preggo. There were uncomfortable moments and we had enough snacks in the car to keep the baby fed. One thing I love about my father-in-law is that he is a photobug like me. Here’s a little portrait of our family taken by him:

He also helped me start my weekly belly shots. 17 weeks pregnant

This 2nd trimester is definitely my favorite part of being pregnant. Long gone are the days of throwing up and super fatigue (finally)! Since my pregnancy, I’ve been losing weight and I am glad to say that I am finally gaining some weight- never thought I’d be happy about that. My appetite has definitely increased to the point that I ALWAYS have food with me nowadays. haha

I’m hoping to be able to put up our Christmas decor this week. Have you done yours?

And this year, we get to be together again. It’s going to be a huge family reunion!!! This year, all my family living in America & all of Brian’s family (except the Desha family) will be gathered together to celebrate lots of things from Christmas, Papa’s birthday to Endownments at the temple.

I. CANNOT. WAIT.
