As weeks go by…

Wow… I remember taking weekly pictures of myself when I was pregnant with Addie and posting them with the phrase: Week x, Baby is the size of a lime, avocado, watermelon (JK)…

Now… I just try to take a picture within the right week. It’s never the actual date (does it gross you out that I know we conceived New Years Eve?) of the week, but I’m always close- and, as a seasoned second born, I know this is just gonna have to be good enough for Millie.

What IS really cool, is that this pregnancy is a bit more documented than Addie’s because I have this blog which reignited my passion for writing and squelches my desire to over-share… so, for those who are wondering where the heck the belly pics are, here’s a bit of sisterly combat already starting in the womb: Weeks by Sister!

The sisters are belly for belly early on...

Here, they begin to express their differences. Addie stayed rather low, while Millie moved up into the vital organs.

...and there she is! Halfway there and Miss Camille Thea's incubator is far larger than Miss Adelaide's!

I love being pregnant… even if I cannot breathe well and the impending summer is looming over my already sweaty body like a threat. I’m excited for sisters. I’m blessed to have more children. Bring it on third trimester! This mama is ready!

How was your body different each pregnancy?

    My second was so much higher as well. The pregnancies were night and day as my second was significantly larger (and still is by comparison) than my first.
    But, overall, I was fortunate enough to truly enjoy pregnancy and embrace the amazing ability MY body had to host this amazing little being soon to come. His and her spirit lifted me – even through the aches pains and two very hot sweaty summers (both babies born in Oct and Nov)!
    Keep on rocking on!

  2. one of your belly pics had a different tatoo– a leaf, and I was staring at it trying to figure out how it got changed. It wasn’t until 5 minutes later that I figured out it is the other side.

    I need a cup of coffee obviously!

    You have one cute belly – and an even cuter baby playing around in there. She must love swimming :)

  3. SUPER cute! It’s nice to have these pictures when you look back. Especially to see how each pregnancy is different.

  4. I love belly pictures. Each of my pregnancies were so different. There was nothing the same in any of them except I was sick.

  7. I was so good about belly pics my first two pregnancies, now I’m 36 weeks with my third and only have one photo! I wish I took more, I guess I could take one now every week until the end. Lord knows I’m still getting bigger! You’re lucky to have such wonderful keepsakes!

  9. What an adorable belly – throughout both pregnancies! I guess this throws out the theory that you only carry differently for different genders. :) This makes me miss being pregnant!

  11. I had to giggle that you mentioned when you knew when you conceived. I know 2 out of three of my kids too, they were both conceived on a holiday also LOL.
