Second Trimester: Weeks 24 - 27 | Baby #2

Right now, I am 28 weeks pregnancy and doing so well! I can't believe I am in my third trimester with sweet baby #2! The second trimester was truly incredible. The honeymoon stage of pregnancy did not disappoint! 

I can't tell you how many times in these past couple months my husband has stopped me in my tracks to help me with something I probably shouldn't be doing while pregnant (like carrying loads of laundry down two flights of stairs). All because I felt so normal during my second trimester that I would sometimes forget that I'm pregnant! Now that I'm in the third trimester, and baby girl is getting much larger, there are no more moments of "forgetting that I'm pregnant" these days. 

Week 24: 
- Nick was able to come to another appointment with me (a luxury in a pandemic) 
- During my sonogram, baby girl kept her hands by her face, it was so sweet


Week 25:
- Heartburn is visiting after meals during the day, causing mild discomfort
- Still able to get a good amount of sleep with only a trip or two to the bathroom
- Craving homemade food from my childhood at Nana's 
(Salisbury Steaks + Mashed Potatoes on repeat)


Week 26:
- Bump is growing
- Rolling from side to side at night is just starting to become a challenge
- Kicks are getting stronger (and sometimes a little painful)


Week 27:
- I can't believe I'm in the third trimester already!
- Tying my shoes is starting to get harder
- Nursery is very close to being finished (just need baseboards & decor)


I can't believe I'll only be posting 3 more recaps like this before baby girl arrives! I am so in love with her already.
