27 weeks along! Apparently I am carrying high, I had no idea how you tell if it's high or low but someone told me it was high because I can't breathe! Like every time I lay down, it feels like the wind got knocked out of me because I guess baby girl's favorite resting spot is right on top of my lungs haha.

She kicks all day, everyday! Sometimes she rests her foot or hand or something on the wall of my stomach and when I touch it, she moves really quick and it's my favorite part so far. Because it's like just that constant reminder that she is in there!! Just growing and getting ready to get out and be here. I have 13 weeks to go which is so short but soooo long at the same time! I finally stopped getting sick all the time officially!! Pretty much just when I eat red sauce is when I don't feel that great. It's not enough to keep me away from pizza, though. (yet)

So the other day someone told me I looked HUGE and that it looked like I was about to pop. I replied with "ha I have 3 more months so..." then she told me I looked like I could pop TONIGHT! I am sure she meant no harm but holy cow I ran to Jason and cried because, "I'mmmmmm faaaattttt!!!" PSA- NEVER tell that to a pregnant woman ever, guys!! I've been having a hard time reminding myself that weight gain is from pregnancy, but it's still a concept I have yet to be totally cool with. It's hard to be gaining weight and there's nothing I can really be doing about it. I've never weighed this much in my entire life and it just gets kind of hard sometimes! Jason is always saying "you are not FAT you are PREGNANT! You are supposed to be gaining weight!!" So I'm working on not thinking I'm "fat" and just being like "it's all for the baby, it's good weight!!" Moral is- always tell pregnant people they look awesome and NEVER tell them how huge they look because then it's just a reminder of something I do not want to be focusing on aka gaining weight.

In other news, we are in California right now!! Just waiting for the clouds to move along so we can go to the beach in a little bit and enjoy or last trip before baby comes! I've been documenting it on snapchat a little so if you're into California snaps, feel free to add me- kahandace

  2. I was just talking to my sister about this today, my other sister is like 8 months pregnant and I guess she is crying all the time because everyone's making comments to her like that! How fricking rude! YOU LOOK BEAUTIFUL!!! Do not ever, ever ever use the F word. It's not allowed. Especially not pregnant. There's no way you could grow a human without some extra LOVE on ya. LOVE is the new word, ok? You're perfect so stop it! HAVE FUN and I cannot wait to hear about California!! xo

    1. THANK YOU!!!! Seriously though it's just so weird gaining weight sooooo quickly and so much at once!! But obviously it will be worth it, just hard to focus on the fact that it's a baby in there and not 10lb of donuts (...usually)

  3. Girl, you DO look great! People just aren't thinking when they make comments like that.

    On a happy note - you are so close to meeting her! Only 13 more weeks - it will fly by!

  5. Woah! She popped up out of no wear! It helps that you are itty bitty and ALL baby. People are so insensitive! lol When I had two weeks to go, we went out to dinner and sat at the bar while we waited for our name to be called. The bar tender was SO freaked out with how pregnant I was. He looked disgusted and kept asking me questions. It was kind of hilarious. He literally thought my water was going to break all over his bar stool. You know what, I secretly wish it would have. (;

  6. I've been loving your snaps of California girl, driving through the clouds looked so intense and scary! OMG I can't believe someone had the actual nerve to say you were huge!!! I feel like you just barely popped that little bump of yours! You are such a skinny minnie and that little babe is cooking perfectly in there so you just ignore those haters :)!

    1. Thank you!! Driving through the cloud was cool but it kept getting thicker! And you are so nice, oh my gosh! Her comment just totally caught me off guard and pregnancy hormones did not make it any better!

  7. Rude lady! I'm really short so Sophie started poking out a lot sooner than normal, at about the same time you are now, my doctor told me that there was no more going up, that Sophie would be forced to grow out (meaning my belly started expanding rapidly to accommodate the child that could no longer fit upwards). My waist expanded to twice its size when I was pregnant.

    1. We are like the same size I think so I bet that is how I will be, too! Baby doesn't have much more room in there so the only way is out! You look like you've never had a baby so hoping I can look like you once she is out :)

  8. I really don't get why people say that! I feel like 99% of the time when someone tells a pregnant woman she's 'about to pop' they are still like months away. So I think no one should say it ever. EVER. I personally think you look great! And definitely not 9 months pregnant, and definitely NOT FAT and just like a healthy pregnant lady!

    1. hahah yesss so true!! Like I've never heard someone say it to someone who is 9 months, it's always when they're like 6 months or something. and thank you!!! I sure hope so, that comment and my hormones made a badddd combo

  12. You look great! I feel like I'm carrying a bit high as there is little to no space between my ribs + stomach when I sit down. I have to lean back...haha.

    1. I'm the same way! And when I lay down, she just sits on my lungs haha You look so cute, just read your post about second trimester musings and I love your dress!!

  13. Girl, Jason is right, you need to be gaining weight when you're with baby so don't let it get you down. You look good & healthy & you want to be getting bigger cuz that means your baby girl is getting bigger & healthy. It's a good thing, my dear, it really is. Big hugs!

    Have some good ol' Cali fun! :)

    1. Thank youuuuu!!! You are so right, she is growing big and strong and I need to focus on THAT instead of other dumb things. :)

  14. Girl, you look beautiful! I'm having a hard time adjusting to the whole "gaining weight thing" too. I'm only 17 weeks right now, but I'm getting bigger everyday it seems. I just have to remind myself that I have to gain "weight" for my baby to be healthy! It's definitely an adjustment when we, as women, have basically been told our whole lives to be skinny. Sometimes people don't think before they speak (especially to us pregnant girls). I'm having a hard time trying to be nice about it.. Whoops haha.

    1. Thank you!!! You are right, it's all for the baby and it is healthy and totally fine! You look so cute though, too :) But I feel your struggle, it's such an adjustment gaining weight so fast. Just have to keep reminding ourselves it is GOOD!!!
