23 weeks: Belly Photos Included

I've been reminded that I'm doing TERRIBLY at posting pictures of my belly.  Well, there is one simple reason for that.  I'm also awful at taking them!  For some reason, the weeks just pass by too quickly to sneak in one quick picture of my ever-growing bump and a certain 19-month-old is keeping me on my toes! 

Also, I just don't feel as cute this time around.  I haven't gained any more weight than I did the first time around and my bump probably looks about the same, but it just feels different.  My maternity clothes seem to look funny now and I never have the time or energy to do my hair and make-up like I did the 1st time. 

This is Paisley's belly bump for comparison to now- I think it's VERY similiar.
Current Pregnancy!  Up to a 12 pound weight gain after a rapid gain this past week...
And Paisley in utero.

Notice that I'm too lazy to even tape the sheet up this time.  :)
Anyways, I still feel great and I still adore being pregnant.  The movement is always going to be my favorite and this little one does LOTS of it.  :)  Just really excited to see this sweet little baby and know who's been growing in my belly so rapidly!!!


  1. You talk about being lazy- I've been reading on my phone lately and have been too lazy to actually get on the computer to comment. I've been following your latest pregnancy drama and thinking of you- so sorry! Hope the rest of the way is smooth sailing. Also, you look adorable!

  2. You look gorgeous! And, yes, very similar to how you carried Paisley! I'm so excited to see pictures of this little one:). Oh, and it's not lazy - I had Jax when I was pregnant with Addy so I did very little in the way of getting dressed, fancy photo sessions, etc, lol! It is what it is!

  3. I think you look great friend! I feel like I didn't feel quite as cute either my second pregnancy so I totally understand. And I'm totally impressed you let Paisley dye 4 dozen eggs. I let E dye 3...I'm obviously not as brave as you. :)

  4. Not to be like staring at your boobs or anything but your boobs looked bigger with paisley :) Adorable bellies!!!! I really should have taken more belly pics and posted them!! :(

  5. You look great, I'm surprised how similar they look, I thought the second would be bigger!!

  6. Super cute baby bump!!

    Re: coconut oil -- if you use it in a smoothie (or anything cold) melt it in the microwave, then while blending the smoothie pour in the oil quickly. Otherwise it gets chunky and gross as it resolidifies! But it really works!
