2nd Trimester Progressive Photos

My 2nd Trimester ended a couple of weeks ago. I can’t believe how quickly it flew by. They really say that you feel the greatest in the 2nd Trimester and I find that statement completely true.
Those weeks were perfectly timed with what we had going on in our lives. We bought a house and settled on April 16th.  Just 5 days before we were about to find out whether we were going to have a baby boy or baby girl. Soon after that we were busy packing up our lives and moving boxes and furniture. We finally permanently moved into our new home in mid June. We took our time moving in because we were still house sitting and pet sitting until the family came home for the summer.

We were watching this guy, Hemi (Hemingway)!

To finally get myself, and all of you, caught up with my pregnancy, I wanted to share with you my 2nd Trimester Progressive Photos.

A couple of my favorites are from Week 24 (below), when we were down in the Outer Banks for vacation and it happened to be my 30th birthday.

This last one is from Week 28- I love to brag that my hubby is a great photographer ūüôā

1st Trimester Progressive Photos

I started my “Bun in the Oven” Pinterest Board probably at least 6 months prior to getting pregnant (and it was on private setting). ¬†I was that girl that when she found out that she was pregnant, was determined to do those weekly progressive photos. ¬†Like all of those ones I had so admired on Pinterest. ¬† Wearing the same outfit, using the same background, making a cute sign stating how many weeks along I was. ¬†Maybe even stating what type of fruit my little baby was that week. ¬†But to be completely honest, it just didn’t happen, because I was just too damn tired. ¬†Plus we got stuck in this Breaking Bad schedule¬†and we ended up¬†watching¬†the entire 5 seasons in 2 months!

So here is a little flashback to my first trimester of when I thought I actually had a large “bump” that I had to hide. ¬†I look back at these and giggle at myself for thinking that. ¬† Here are my 1st Trimester progressive photos that I was able to capture with my iPhone and then the 14 week photo Russell took for our announcement.

What about you?  Were you able to take those perfect looking progressive photos that you dreamed of?
