Second Trimester: Weeks 24-27

Right now, I am 28 weeks pregnant! I am in my third trimester with my sweet little girl.

I can honestly say that my second trimester was amazing! My first trimester was kind of hard with nausea and fatigue but my second trimester had barely any of that! My second trimester was filled with joy and love. I really know why they call it the "honeymoon phase" of pregnancy. It was magical.

Week 27
I am so thankful that I've made it this far with barely any issues. This little girl is loved more and more each day! Below is a recap of weeks 24-27.


Week 24:
Finishing up my battle with acute bronchitis. Thankful that it didn't come with a high fever and that it required no medication for me to get better. I got better from a lot of rest, fluids and patience. The entire week I was able to feel my little girl wiggle all around as I rested on the couch. We spent a lot of quality time together this week!




Week 25:
This was such an exciting week, and quite possibly my favorite week of pregnancy! We registered for our baby shower and got our crib set up in the nursery! I can't keep myself out of the nursery this week. I go in and look at the crib every morning and every night before I go to bed. My husband and I catch each other doing this often and we just laugh. It is so heart warming to know that we are feeling the same excitement and love for this baby girl!


Week 27

Week 26:
Good week overall. Flipping from side to side in the middle of the night is getting harder. I can only sleep on each side for about an hour before needing to flip because of sore hips.
I experienced my first bout of Braxton Hicks contractions this week, as well. Or so I think. Not painful, just uncomfortable for a little while one day this week.
At the end of this week, we got some maternity photos done. My mom took the photos for us. That was a special day, and I love each photo we got!


Week 27

Week 27:
This was a magical week! Another one of my favorite weeks!
I spotted the first kicks from the outside at the beginning of this week and I had my first baby shower at the end of this week! It was so special! I can honestly say the shower was perfect.
On a funny note, I also woke up at 2 a.m. one morning this week, craving scalloped potatoes. I layed in bed for way too long just thinking about eating the potatoes my mom use to make.
