My Baby Bump (16 weeks) And Other Fall Fun

Things are calming down around here! I feel "normal" again, and am hitting that second trimester energy surge (only a month late :).

This is Bug and I dancing to some bluegrass at the NC State Fair.

And here's my 16 week pic, although I'm actually 17 weeks today. I am much bigger this time around. My belly wasn't this big at 30 weeks with Bug! But, I LOVE looking pregnant. I think pregnant women are incredibly beautiful, and think it's really sad that so many women feel "fat" and are sensitive about belly comments. I never feel better about my body than when I'm pregnant!

Yes, that is our super-cool 1972 Chevy Malibu. It was my husband's grandfather's and it is really fun to ride in, although I don't trust the seatbelts with our carseat. It's a hot car, though, and that's said by someone who usually could care less about cars.

Time to go enjoy the cool(er) NC weather, although it will still be in the 80's this week! At least we're done with 100+ weather!


  1. I was bigger the second time around too! But a LOT healthier! You look great. Cute blog. :)

  2. You look beautiful! And congratulations to you - such exciting times! (I got bigger faster the second time around, too.)

    Thank you for your lovely comments on my blog recently. I so appreciate you saying that my cesarean sounded like one of those necessary cases - really happy to hear that. I feel that is true and feel very blessed.

    Take care and keep in touch. I'm excited to check back on you often!


  3. me too! (bigger the 2nd time, love the gourgeousness of pregnant ladies, and never feel better about my body than i do when i am pregnant!) congratulations, lovely mama!
