Bump Date | 28 Weeks with Baby No. Two

I decided to document our pregnancy as a way to get all my feelings and emotions out and to later look and remember this beautiful time in our lives while noticing the differences and similarities with our first pregnancy. I hope you enjoy if you decide to follow along on this life changing journey.

We are officially in the third trimester!! Almost at the finish line so I decided it was yet time again to start doing my bump dates in a weekly format as once my third trimester is over, I will be too busy figuring out life as a mom to a newborn and a toddler. Along with sharing my updates on this ever growing baby bump, I may also include my third trimester style within these weekly updates if and when I find the energy to actually get dressed. You are also more then welcomed to follow me on Instagram as I am on there daily.

As I mentioned in my second trimester update, my energy level didn't completely return and in fact it started slowly dwindling again. I am constantly tired but sciatic nerve pain keeps me awake late into the night. I have tried to start a similar bedtime routine like I had when I was pregnant with Sophia and sometimes that seems to help. I also plan to start doing about 30 minutes of Yoga during the day to see if that kind of helps. When I was pregnant with Sophia, Yoga stretches were apart of my bedtime routine but I think I would benefit having it as part of a mid-day routine this time around while Sophia is napping.


At this point with my first pregnancy, we took a Bradley Method Class but decided this time to just review our workbook and practice everything we learned last year. So hopefully the combination and re-adding yoga into my routine and practicing relaxing and breathing techniques will help me sleep better while also preparing me for birth. Which, scary thought!! You would think once you gave birth, you know what it is all about so you'll do fine the next time but Sophia's birth was full of interventions due to Preeclampsia and God-willing, this birth will happen the way the Lord intended and that is scary because I don't know what to expect. It's nerve wrecking to think about and that's when I just try to not think about it too much and focus on holding that sweet little babe once he has arrived and seeing Sophia's reaction to meeting her baby brother. She is too little to really understand or to even prepare her so I know it will be a major adjustment for all of us and praying the Lord will guide Anthony and I with patience as we each learn our new routine with another baby in tow.
