Well folks, I’m 21 weeks pregnant.
The weeks are starting to fly by.
Picture one of those day calendars you keep on your desk that have fun cartoons on them or whatever… and see the pages being torn off faster and faster and FASTER! That is exactly what feels like is happening. It’s a little freaky as I know December will be here before you know it.
I’ve Been at Births
The past two weeks have been hectic, tiring, beautiful and inspiring. I helped my friend give birth at home to a healthy boy, then my doula client had a beautiful natural childbirth at the hospital and to top it off I was witness to an awesome hospital VBAC.
Postpartum Wake Up Call
I have seen all these mamas postpartum – two second time moms and one first time mom. I am reminded how tough (or not!) postpartum can be.
Mentally, I keep asking myself, “Are you ready for this, Lindsey?”.
Newborns are no joke, y’all. They require mothers to put their own lives on hold, sleep deprivation is inevitable, and engorged boobs are only cool to husbands.
However, having been there before, I think the transition won’t be so dramatic. The maiden has already died, you know?
Gender Reveal Photos
If you missed it, last week we found out what type of baby we are having. You know, boy or girl, not martian or human. Check out our gender reveal photos we had done!
If you are interested in seeing the live action video of me finding out we’re having a girl, below is a video. We had a blast finding out this way and recommend it to everyone!
21 Weeks Pregnant Ultrasound
Here are some ultrasound pictures of baby girl. The first one is a fun profile shot which shows her spine and skull.
The second one is THE photo… you know, the crotch shot? What made the gender reveal photoshoot possible?
