For those looking for a pregnancy update, I thought it might be about time! I am currently 23 weeks pregnant and we had an ultrasound just 3 weeks ago. We found out the gender for our 4th and most likely last child but have decided to keep it a secret. My husband has a very sarcastic sense of humor so he has loved teasing and taunting those that are extra curious to find out. I still have about a month left of the 2nd trimester so I’m doing good right now. Usually, the second trimester goes really easily for me with very minimal complaints. I do find my self tossing back and forth all night long, but at least I am still getting sleep despite the turns. I do feel a lot more tired overall and often find myself falling asleep by 9 o’clock, but that probably has to do with chasing around 3 other kids all day long! My belly button hasn’t quite popped yet, but it’s just a few weeks away, I think!
Being pregnant always makes me think of all the “what ifs” of life. We often hear about traditional nesting like pulling out the baby clothes and organizing and tidying the house from top to bottom but for me – I always start feeling like I need to prepare more long term needs. We use pregnancy as a time to update our will and ensure each child is accounted for and we are still happy with the arrangements we had thought up in the past.
What steps do you take to prepare for a new child? I’m hoping to actually get around to making some freezer meals this time around!

awww congratulations and best wishes! I knew the sex of my last 2 kids too but my ex didnt want to know and didnt want anyone else to know before him so I had to keep it secret all to myself and I DID! : ) I had to laugh about your belly button popping, pregnancy belly buttons remind me of the turkey done timers that pop when the turkey is done haha Yvonne Woodstock [email protected]

I know you are much further along now and I hope things are going good. I'm pregnant too (with my 3rd) and sometimes it's a killer. I hardly blog anymore because I am so tired (not as tired as my first trimester!) Keep up the good work and thanks for all you share!

Enjoy the second trimester as long as you can! I know when I was pregnant with my son, the first trimester was filled with nausea and cravings and sore breasts, and the third trimester was filled with fatigue, moodiness, an achy back, and insomnia, but the second trimester I felt GREAT! Enjoy this time!
