Guys, we’re officially at 8 months! Wahoo! This last month has seriously flown by and I can only hope the next two months go the same. I’ve seriously been feeling a lot better which makes me almost forget how miserable the first half was… almost ha.
The only pregnancy symptoms I’ve had these days are heartburn and getting out of breath. I swear I feel like I’m in great shape and then I walk up a hill and start panting ha. Oh well! I’ll take that over nausea any day. I’ve also started having a few Braxton hicks contractions lately which are pretty weird. I don’t really notice them unless I’m physically feeling my belly or looking at it. Everything just tightens up for a few seconds and then goes away so nothing painful.
I did also have my first stint of swelling while on vacation in California. I had stood all day in heels on Saturday and then sat all Sunday in the heat at the Charger game but I was still shocked when I got home that night and my left ankle had transformed into a donut.

Besides that everything has been going great! I’m officially up 12.8 lbs. since loosing 3 in the first trimester. I’m sure my two weeks of binge eating .. I mean vacation.. helped me pack on some pounds!
Here are some of the pictures from the last 4 weeks:
