Some random thoughts from the second part of the second trimester (Weeks 21-27 weeks) (Find the first part here)

  • Starting around week 20-21 I am definitely feeling baby kicks!  Usually pretty sporatic though.
  • Beginning of week 22 and the kicks are becoming more regular and more at a time.  Still nothing hard enough that could be felt from the outside though.
  • We started planning/working on the nursery!
  • We also started making a registry. I feel like I change my mind about things every other day, but hopefully it will be solidified soon!
  • I thought I was so lucky not to have any pregnancy related digestion issues.  And then that luck changed.  I still think it isn’t as bad as it could be, but Tums (the minty ones) have come in handy a few times.   The indigestion seems to be its worst when I’m going to bed, especially if it’s after I eat chocolate or fried things. Boo! (don’t worry, I’m still eating chocolate, just not quite as much, and not in the evenings)
  • We finished our baby registry! It actually was more difficult to do than I thought it would be.  I guess I didn’t realize that there were 800 options for so many things, and so many things that seem like they are optional but of course someone swears by them.
  • Week 23 I’m starting to feel kicks from the outside on occasion.  She is definitely more active at certain times of day.
  • I’ve been trying my best not to buy too many things yet, but I’ve been on a bit of a clothing buying spree since we found out it is a girl.  Really it is because we sell some super adorable things where I work.  Oh, and a friend recently introduced me to BabyGap…and their sales make things much more reasonable priced!  But I’m not buying pretty much anything in newborn/tiny sizes – there is a bunch of that on my registry, and they just grow out of things so quickly early on, I don’t want to spend a lot of money on adorable things that they will probably only wear once.
  • We emptied out the room and started painting the nursery! Well, I should say, my dad and husband started painting the nursery.  I’m trying to keep it simple, and so far so good. I totally failed to take “before” photos though, oops! (Nursery update post coming soon!)
  • I may be the only person in the world who is actually kind of happy that my feet got a bit wider and fatter with pregnancy.  Some of my shoes fit better!
