18 weeks (2 weeks ago)

Here’s a photo of me and the blueberry at 18 weeks. Except now, the blueberry is the size of a large heirloom tomato. As of yesterday, I’m 20 weeks. Half-way there! I’ve been feeling well. I’m still really tired. I had heard that you get all this energy back in your second trimester, but not so much for me–at least not yet. My friend Margie told me she didn’t start to regain energy until around week 22, so there’s still hope. Plus, I just started to feel a little baby movement in the last week or so–exciting! Tim asked me what it feels like, but it’s hard to describe.  It feels like a flutter, a snap or a pop.  Snap. Crackle. Pop.

    Everyone says it feels like popcorn popping. Funny analogy. I’m not sure if I can imagine what “popcorn popping” in my belly feels like.

    One thing is for sure, I don’t think you can call the baby a pizza belly anymore!

    Keep the posts coming. :)

    Hey Kristi, thanks for the comment! I like comments. Popcorn popping is actually a really good analogy. That’s pretty much what it feels like.
