Can you believe I am halfway through my pregnancy ?! I can’t. I filmed a 20 week update for those of you who watched my Finding Out I’m Pregnant After Miscarriage video and are curious as to how things are going. You can watch the new video here.
In the video I mostly talk about how I have been feeling the past 20 weeks. I talk symptoms, how I got over my fear of another miscarriage, and my feelings towards changing body. You can also find a summary of the update below. For those of you uninterested in the video, just know my pregnancy is progressing well and baby and I are both healthy. Only another 20 weeks to go!
I would say that I am pretty lucky when it comes to experiencing pregnancy symptoms. I wouldn’t really say that I have experienced much “morning sickness”, just a little bit of nausea if I hadn’t ate in a while. The main symptom was just that I was so tired! I could barely keep my eyes open for the first 14 weeks! Luckily, that seems to have gone away and I have my energy back. For a while there I forgot what it was like to have energy to do anything. Lastly, I have been experiencing lower back pain from what seems like the moment baby was conceived. Some days I wake up in pain, but typically it is made worse by being on my feet for a long period of time. A heating pad works wonders at soothing my aching back after a long day.

My Changing Body
The one thing that I hadn’t expected during pregnancy was having a hard time adjusting to my changing body. I can’t help but think that I look strange when I look at myself in the mirror and I’ve spent a lot of my time hiding behind baggy clothes. I definitely expected that I would be one of those women who love showing off their bump – but so far that has not been the case. But I am working towards that point!
Thanks for taking the time to read my update! I’ve been working on a lot of content for you guys in the near future – beauty, baby, and travel related! Between two jobs and full time school I haven’t been able to prioritize Kassie’s Korner as much as I would’ve liked over the past couple of months. One of my goals is to change that – so stay tuned 🙂 xox
