When you’re pregnant, you check yourself out in the mirror. A lot. It’s not because you’re so much more vain than you were pre-pregnancy. It’s not because you want to look at your outfit twelve times a day. It’s because you’re waiting for that magical moment when your belly pops. That moment when you go from looking like you might’ve gained a few pounds to actually looking pregnant. And for this mama, it happened this week.
Once you really look pregnant, you start to really feel pregnant. I’m realizing that next week, this baby is already halfway cooked – how crazy is that? It’s so strange, because I felt like getting to twenty weeks when I was pregnant with Ricky took FOREVER. And this time it’s gone by in the blink of an eye. We’ve literally done nothing to prepare for baby yet.
Now, don’t get me wrong. Twenty weeks is certainly a long time to get our stuff together. But if they go by as fast as the first half of this pregnancy has gone, we certainly are going to need to get focused. When I was pregnant with Ricky, we didn’t really start getting organized til the third trimester…so I guess we’re really not that far behind?
Hmmm…my logic is telling me that we’re fine. My mommy hormones are telling me to kick my butt into gear.
Tell me in the comments: when did you start preparing for baby number two?
