You guys! I am closing in on my third trimester, I cannot comprehend that I’m finishing up my fifth month of being pregnant. Where did the time go? I know I’m going to be saying this a lot but really, where did it? I just had my 24th-week appointment and it went so well. We learned a lot and discussed how our appointments will be changing and increasing, as well as discussing more about birth plans. This is being published at 25 weeks so here’s a bump photo at 25 weeks.
It’s week 21 and I’m past the halfway point of this pregnancy. I’ve had a lot of appointments last week and they all went well. It finally hit me that time is flying by and it’s only going to go quicker. I feel like once I start noticing fall decorations in the stores, Christmas is here before I know it and for all I know, baby can be here by then. We’ve been working hard on getting the apartment ready for baby and I’m starting to feel like any time I start a new project I realize it’s either a much bigger project than I thought or now I have three more projects to do.
It’s week 18 (at least while I’m writing this post), can you believe it! There has been so much going on and I cannot believe how close I am to the midway point of this pregnancy. That’s just absurd to me. Now that I’m feeling more alive and normal I’m going to do my absolute best to do updates more often. A lot has been changing and we just had our first baby shower. Take a look at those cookies my little sister got for us, they tasted as amazing as they look!
I’ve been holding out on you all! I’m pregnant! By the time that this is published and being read, I’ll be 15 weeks. It’s a little crazy to me that I’m even writing this post and sharing this because I honestly didn’t think it would happen. Conor and I are both so happy and excited about this journey and our little one to come.
Despite entering my 4th month being pregnant, I’m still in disbelief that I’m pregnant and we’ll have a little one with us not too long after Christmas. I look at my ultrasounds and I’m just still so shocked that there’s a little baby inside growing.
When I was a child I used to lie my head down to sleep while listening to the sound of coqui. It wasn’t because I had wanderlust at the age of eight, it was because Puerto Rico was always such a huge part of my life and my happiness. We took trips back as often as we could because my great-grandparents lived there and my grandmother moved there. When we went back year after year, we created as many memories as there was sand stuck to us while leaving the beach. The memories that I have from my childhood are the memories that I recreate every single time I go back. We would go to our local beach and I would make a new friend each time, I remember once I made a friend who lived fairly close to our Colinas so we met up every single day while I was there. The people are the kindest that you will ever meet and they are also the most resilient.
Hey friends! I hope things are warming up by you, last weekend we got hit by the worst snowstorm. I haven’t filled you all in on what’s been going on around here so here’s our life currently.
