somewhere between 3 and 4 months

I'll tell you the difference between my third pregnancy and my first two. I have no idea how far along I am right at this moment. Justin reminded me the other day we should take a picture of my belly for the new baby and I had to roll around in my head how pregnant I was already.

I know I'm pregnant enough that I can't get any of the buttons done on my shorts or any zippers pulled up on my jeans. My belly band usage is in full force now. I know I am pregnant enough that I don't feel nauseous much any longer; only when I'm crazy hungry. I'm pregnant enough to need some of the back relief exercises I use as well as the little wedge pillow at night. I'm up every few hours at night to pee. My real maternity clothes still kind of hang on me. That's how pregnant I am right now.

I have a four month check up sometime in the first week of May and Bella's birthday is this Friday. That's as close as I'm going to get to pinpointing how far along this pregnancy is! My lack of following the days one by one doesn't in any way reflect my excitement level for this new baby. In fact, I love thinking about the little bundle in there without counting the days. I've got other stuff to count down to right now.

I love baby bumps! Do you know what you're having yet?! I so loved being pregnant and tracked every week, but I probably won't be that way with the next one haha

You look so adorable! I must admit, I am glad to see you have a bump at that stage....Nathan's office mate is 5.5 months along and still wearing normal clothes...I was with you sister! Glad you are feeling good -:)

You look great! I think pregnancy goes by so much faster when there are other things to think about.

You look so good! From the back, I bet you can't even tell that you are pregnant.

I was the same way with #3...completely lost track of the days and weeks and before I knew it, 9 months were up and there he was.
You look super cute Sara!!!!

I definitely lost track of time with this third pregnancy. With the first two I knew exactly how many weeks & days I was. But this time around I haven't kept track! Now I'm 4 weeks away and paying attention to the countdown! You look fabulous!!
