The Joys of Pregnancy
A couple of weeks ago, I was told by a friend that I needed to post some updated pregnancy photos. So, this is me at about 20 weeks pregnant (I am actually 21 weeks now).
Although I no longer have morning sickness (unless I go too long without eating), I have been experiencing some other unwelcome pregnancy cons. Including some not so wonderful varicose veins in my right leg, along with some rather unfriendly pregnancy acne. Seriously, I don't think I have ever had acne this bad...and I've forgotten how awful it can make you feel. (if anyone knows of any safe remedies I could try, please share :)
But, I am grateful that these are the least of my worries, because I know that things could definitely be worse. When I had my first baby, I had even more pregnancy issues... and I'll admit, that there were days when I would do the whole "pitty party" thing, knowing that my body would never go back to normal.
But when my 1st baby was finally born, I realized that everything I went through was well worth it (and now I need to remind myself of that once again!)
By the way, if you happen to be looking for some fun baby/toddler birthday ideas you should check out my friend Amber's blog...I LOVE the ombre cake she designed!
