I can’t believe we're pretty much half way to meeting our sweet little baby Serpe!! I’m currently 22 weeks along, and besides some occasional ligament and pelvic pain I’m feeling great. In the past few weeks we've had our 20-week anatomy scan, as well as an additional ultrasound on the heart, and our midwife has confirmed everything looks great
My pregnancy thus far has been pretty similar to my first
With my first pregnancy I found that I was pretty calm, and this time I feel even more at ease. When others find out it’s my second pregnancy it seems like they feel the same. I went for a prenatal massage, and when the masseuse discovered it was my second go, she breathed a sigh of relief, because I "know how it goes”, and it’s true! Something about doing this a second time makes you feel like it’s routine and you’ve been doing it your whole life LOL. I think what helps keeps me sane is staying active. With Stella I worked out until the week before my due date, and I plan to do the same now. I'm currently doing prenatal yoga, and pilates. It's the perfect mama break!
What’s a bit strange for me is that by this time during my first pregnancy the nursery was in progress, the baby registry had been started, and I was buying cute little outfits every other day. This pregnancy, since we’re currently living with my parents, there is no nursery to decorate and we pretty much have everything we need from Stella, including a ton of neutral outfits
Although I do have some anxieties about how Stella will adjust to being a big sister, I am REALLY looking forward to newborn snuggles, and getting settled into a life with TWO babes!!!
