At 18 weeks I started feeling my little biscuit moving around. I didn't feel Copeland moving until about 21 weeks so it's exciting to already have this connection. Ryan and I joke that this one might be more like me because he tends to get very excited around meal times (Copeland was busy at ALL TIMES).
At 19 weeks I finally started wearing some maternity clothes. The Tuesday before Thanksgiving I was wearing my normal wardrobe...and the Friday after I wasn't so comfortable in most of my pants. I was still able to wear some of my regular pants for awhile but I think by now I'm in maternity pants for the rest of my pregnancy. I am still wearing some non-maternity shirts and dresses but I wouldn't be surprised if that ends in the next few weeks. Strangely, I started showing much later and much more subtly with this pregnancy than last. Everyone I talk to says that they showed so early with their second pregnancies. I still hadn't reached my pre-pregnancy weight at almost 21 weeks. With Copeland I started gaining weight steadily from day one!
At 20 months, I had a visible bump. I don't have a 20 week picture but here is a 21 week and 2 day picture where my bump has now become much more visible and I definitely feel like I'm pregnant now. I have finally surpassed my pre-pregnancy weight which means I gained quite a bit in the last week! Probably has something to do with having my appetite (and sweet tooth) back!
