Whaaaat?  Can I really be halfway through this pregnancy already?  I mean, technically I will hit the halfway mark tomorrow at exactly 20 weeks, but sheesh! I didn't realize how very different it would be to be pregnant for the second time.  I am still very excited, but I just don't have the time to dwell on it like I did through my first pregnancy.  There are some days that I forget about my belly until Luke kicks me, or I try to bend down to tackle Jack and my belly gets in the way.  I did manage to paint my toenails last night, and while that task is getting a little more difficult, I think I will be able to do it for a while yet. (Matt did volunteer to help though. So sweet!) 


Weight gain: I haven't stepped on a scale since my last appointment, but judging from the feel of my pants...it's gone up a bit.
Cravings: Only tacos.  I haven't actually eaten any though, because during my first tri I wanted a taco and then I got sooo sick. 
Movement: All the time! Little dude is a wiggle worm.  My youngest sister got to feel him kick on Sunday.
Gender: It's a boy!
Milestones: Halfway mark! And...not to jinx myself here...but I haven't been sick in almost TWO WEEKS!

This is the part of pregnancy that I love.  I feel pregnant, I look pregnant, I can feel the baby move, but I am no longer sick, and I don't feel like a whale just yet!

And here is the cutest part of this post...Jack started KISSING my belly.  Completely unprompted, he just walks over, lifts up my shirt and kisses 'Luke'. He also likes to sit in my lap and touch my belly lightly and say 'tickle' (I gently tickle his belly when he is sleepy before his naps, so I think he learned that from me!)


  1. you look gohr-jus. 1/2 way!

  2. I can't believe how fast pregnancy goes the second time around, it's crazy! You look great, by the way :)

  3. You look so beautiful Bekah, halfway, yahoo!! Dearest Jack, he will be a great big bro!! Love you, Oukie

  4. You are looking great! And I'm glad you're feeling better!!

  5. You do look wonderful, girl! There is a bit of color in your cheeks now that you're feeling better. :) Enjoy feeling good. Don't you just love it when those sweet big brothers kiss your belly?!? Q would do that and it was just precious. I love having a sweet, loving, tender hearted boy!

  6. You and I have almost the same due date (I'm due 10/10 with our second). I am amazed at how fast this pregnancy is going and how under the radar it is. The mention of "no dwelling" rang so true with me. It's different this second time around, but just as special and blessed! You look wonderful, too! Enjoy!

  7. You look awesome! I'm in the whaleness stage.. *sigh*
    I know what ya mean about how it just flies by, and how you don't watch each and every day. I did that the first time, and this time it just creeps up on ya!
