This is a picture from Week 21. As you can tell, I'd gotten quite bit bigger! By this point the stomach aches and pains had pretty much gone away and I was feeling little Elmo begin to kick and move around inside my belly. At this point I definitely felt pregnant and not just fat. Yeah!
This is from Week 23. Again, it's hard to believe that I still have so far to go with my pregnancy. I look (and feel) huge already! One of the things that I've noticed with this enormous belly is that it is difficult to lean over the sink to do dishes. Scott is going to have to take over that duty soon (trust me, I'm not complaining too much!). Little Elmo is kicking quite a bit lately and Scott and I can finally feel him from the outside. I can actually see my belly move sometimes when Elmo's really active. It's fun to think about our little peanut moving around in there!
We are in Week 24 now, just a couple of weeks away from the third trimester. The time has really flown by! We have another check-up this week along with the dreaded glucose testing. Yuck! I'm not looking forward to that but oh well -- what can you do. Wish me luck!
