Well I have had a busy couple of weeks and have been away from the blog. Perhaps I will blog about it, maybe not. Either way it is time for a Bumpdate.


Well I’m at 21 weeks now, so over half way! I am excited to be past the half way mark, but on the other hand… there is still soooo much time to go. As you can see from the picture I have rounded out a lot. It now feels like I have swallowed a basketball and it is getting uncomfortable to sit, walk.. pretty much do anything. I am still having a lot of braxton hicks, but not as many painful ones, so my belly is pretty hard on a regular basis.

My hip pain is getting much worse and now includes pelvic pain as well. I recently shot a wedding and the day after I could barely move. I am not sure how I am going to manage the 2 or 3 other weddings I need to shoot this year plus all my other bookings. I have not loaded my schedule.. but I am caught between being in a lot of pain but still having to earn money. It is a crappy situation, but I will just have to push threw it.

On a more positive note, I went to my 20 week ultrasound and got to see the baby. All was good, but it sure looks cramped in there. I swear this baby looks bigger than the other 3, but the tech said it is the right side for the age. I did find out the sex, but my husband is still holding out on not finding out. He told me he is doing it to smite me. He asked me not to find out, but I said I wanted to find out so I could plan bedrooms and clothes. So he decided he didn’t wanted to know.. so now I can’t plan bedrooms or do anything that would give the sex away. Oh well. That means all of you out there need to wait until it arrives to find out what we are having.

Luckily we have both a girl name and boy name agreed upon, at least for now. If it is a boy it will be Maximus. If it is a girl it will be Amelia. However we still have a few months to go, so this could change.

Other than that, not much to report pregnancy wise.
