Twenty-Seven


I'm 27 weeks along today. The waddle has started. And my belly has conveniently become a nice little shelf perfect for propping books and checking my iPhone. I find myself listening to my body more and more, resting a lot, putting my feet up, and sleeping as much as possible. I'm making a baby in there! It's magical. I forget that I've done this three times before. Because it really does feel like the very first time.

  1. You look very cute. I'm finding that not only did my pregnancy with Aisling feel like the very first time, but it feels like I'm a mom for the first time too.

  3. Very cute.
    I love the pregnant waddle.

    She'll be here before we all know it!

  4. That "shelf" sure comes in handy sometimes. Matt makes fun of me when I use my prego belly to prop things, but you might as well make use of it. :-)

    You're looking great.

  5. Ah, I remember those days all too well. I was so bad about leaving crumbs on my "shelf" after I'd eaten. Everyone knew what I had for lunch.

    And it became more and more difficult to gauge the proper distance between my ever growing belly and cupboards or doors that I'd inadvertently swing open and knock my baby with. He turned out okay though.

    You look too cute. Love the apple.

  8. At the time I was pregnant with Joel we had a chihuahua named Cocoa, and Cocoa loved to curl up on top of the "shelf". He would give me quite a look when Joel moved a lot

  22. I love your preggy clothes. I'm having the toughest time myself finding things that fit, as I seem to have gone down a size or two since being pregnant last.

    I dont think I ever noticed before how you're exactly 1 week ahead of me.

    ReplyDelete
  23. The best part of pregnancy! And you look lovely.

    ReplyDelete
  24. You are so beautiful! You could also call it a tray table.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Technically, it is the first time you're doing this! You're making a girl this time! ;D You look awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  26. You wear pregnancy so well. Love the apple on your belly. Cute shot.

  27. Such a cute picture! I got into a bad habit of proping my arm up on my belly and now almost a year and a half later I find myself still doing it. Not so cute when there isn't a baby in there.

    ReplyDelete
  28. you look so beautiful! we took a picture of a cup balance on my belly a few weeks ago...hahah!

    ReplyDelete
  29. 27 weeks already? Where does the time go? It may not seem like it to you (you know, since you're the one carrying the baby and all) but it's going by fast!

    Apparently you have a fruit shelf there too! HA!
    Cute as always Steph!

  30. I just read your story about Noah and am blown away... I am a pediatric oncology nurse and used to work at CMH in Chicago. What a great hospital and I am so glad to hear that you found someone who would LISTEN to you there! I also have a son named Noah, so your "Noah's Story" headline caught my eye.

    I hope that he is still doing well and am so thrilled that you were able to find help for such a debilitating condition - Isn't it amazing how powerful our motherly intuition is!

  31. YEAH!!! You look fantastic! It almost makes me miss being pregnant. Almost. It does make me miss all the great parts - just not the tired, sore back and having to go through labor part.

    (BTW - this is Janice talking not Susan. I am just logged in as Sue and I am too lazy to log out just to leave this comment. Night!)

  32. I love that dress. I also love the stage in pregnancy with the waddle. Pregnant ladies are just a joy to everyone. I just loved that everywhere I went people would just smile. Especially when I had the other kids in tow. Oh how I miss it....and pray I get to have the fourth.

    ReplyDelete
  33. 27 weeks! Wow! It is so exciting to follow along in this beautiful journey. Big prayers for the little girl....

  36. Too funny! I miss having a shelf on my body.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Ha! My belly used to make a nice little table for snacking in bed (as long as it was nothing hot). I kind of missed it when Suzi came out!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I hope I'm as cute and stylish as you, Lord willing there's a next time!

    ReplyDelete

  40. Love the apple resting on your belly. Hmmm . . . that's what I'll be looking for next time I run into you. LOL!

  41. Steph - you look absolutely adorable! I love the way that you're sharing this experience. I look so forward to your posts. I do agree with you...my second pregnancy did feel like a first and when my 2nd son was born he was so different than my first one that in some ways I felt like a first-time mom. How funny-I just read the same comment from Peanut Butter and Jelly boats!!! :-)

  46. That's so sweet. Probably b/c you're creating sugar and spice this time around. Whole new ballgame.

    Love the shelf!!

    Happy Weekend!

  47. Don't you love being pregnant? I LOVED being pregnant! I'm so jealous of your ability to breastfeed. I really struggled, but I'm praying next time will be a success!

    ReplyDelete
  48. You look gorgeous!

    I still have that book I promised you, and I promise promise I'll get it in the mail next week.

    You can use your blog posts as reminders.

  49. If only everyone saw their fourth pregnancy as beautifully as you do. I only dream at this point of a third or fourth and if it does come to pass I hope to remember your words. Magical, truly magical.
