. . . for Lauren and Lauren: Half Way

February 26, 2013

Half Way

top: shade clothing    scarf: gap    pants: target   boots: dsw

It's hard to believe that we are half way through!  I am enjoying being pregnant SO much more the last few weeks than the beginning.  Due to our complications at the start, lots of nauseousness, and unfortunately letting fear control a lot of my daily feelings, I can't say that I have loved being pregnant.  While I daily woke up and thanked God for this miracle it was a struggle for me to feel at peace and trust that everything was going to work out.  


Looking forward to: 

*Finding out and sharing our baby's gender with our families and friends! (and of course all of you)

*Feelings lots more baby kicks.  The past week I have loved every single little movement and am blown away that there is a real baby in there moving all around! 

*Working on a baby name.  We have a few of each that we love. I don't know how you actually pick one!

*Starting baby's nursery.  Of course I have ideas, and have for quite awhile.  I can't wait to start buying and making things! 

I'm thankful that I've taken weekly pictures, as it's fun to see this belly grow over time!
Here's a look at weeks 13 - 20. 


Hope you are having a good week!

Beautiful! I loved being pregnant. Part of me is actually sad that I won't be doing it again. Oh well, at least I can live vicariously through you. :)

Suzanne Bruce said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

you are so lucky to be pregnant now.. Target has the cutest maternity clothes all on clearance!!! I'd have another baby just for the clothes.. right?

Suzanne Bruce said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

But then one day I'd have a 17 year old... EEEEKKKK!!!! never mind...

Tiffany said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Wow!! Halfway finished! That's so great!

I never loved being pregnant either, but once I started feeling my babies move, it was easier to enjoy. =) I loved to sit in bed in the evenings, read a book with my hand on my belly and feel kicks and rolls and flutters. I can't wait to find out what you're having!!

Priscila@mommode said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

You are the cutest preggers EVER! Love that sweet bump. Congratulations on being halfway there...keep soaking up each precious moment! It all goes by too quickly...and while it's amazing to meet your little one, it's also super special (as you know) to carry him or her. Blessings, blessings. You look SO great, Katie!

Kristin said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I like the pants. Not overpowering, but better than basic black or blue.

Picking a name would be the hardest part. Can't wait to hear all about it!

Carly said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates
