23 week bump

Just like all the others, this week just seemed to fly by. Monday was pretty exciting for me, we had our routine monthly check up with the doctor and then I sat in a chair for hours on end getting my hair done. Gotta love having super long thick hair. Since I got pregnant, I’ve had the opposite thing happen to my hair than most pregnant woman … it is all falling out. Which fortunately I have some to spare, but still … it needed some TLC. So that is exactly what my sister did. We ended up cutting 6 inches from the length and another 4 inches in some areas for layers. I absolutely LOVE the way it feels now, a healthy cut is always a good thing. I didn’t want to do anything too drastic while pregnant, I’ve read some horror stories so it is still long and doesn’t look much different but just feeling healthier was good enough for me.

Yesterday I was scheduled to photograph my friend Tifani’s promo pictures for her newly designed website and blog appearing shortly, and right before we were about to get started … she locked her keys in her car. So in between waiting for the tow truck and her portraits, we decided to snap a few of the 23 week bump, real quick. It is hard to tell how much bigger you’re getting every week when it’s your own body … I feel pretty much the same these days that I did a few weeks ago but seeing it in photos … it is definitely getting bigger. I think next week I’ll try my darndest to find a tighter shirt so you all can see the actual ‘true’ bump verses these flowy shirts I’ve been living in. I’m slowly transitioning from maxis 24-7 to leggings and boots with a flowy top. I bought this shirt at anthropolgie this week and am in love with it! So comfortable and will definitely work when I’m not pregnant as well. Finding cute pieces that fit is getting harder and harder these days. That is for sure.

Best moment this week:
I felt thee biggest kick/role last night actually and it actually scared me because I wasn’t paying attention. I was sitting and watching tv and just had my hand on my belly and out of no where this huge kick/role hit my hand and freaked me out. But then I couldn’t stop smiling! It was seriously a hand or foot reaching out quite a ways haha.
