baby post

i always love seeing my real friends and even my blog friends (who i do not know personally but feel like we are friends. if you read blogs maybe you can relate) little and big pregnant belly's. i also like to keep track of how i looked and how i felt and not forget the hundreds of emotions and thoughts that all rush together during pregnancy.

so here you go: baby ryder number #2 at 19.5 weeks.

a few little things i don't wanna forget about baby number two:

*threw up, constant nausea, bad skin, and exhausted for first 15 weeks.

* i like to eat and trying to be healthy but what comes to mind specifically is: salsa and pretzels. pickles. popcorn with hot sauce on it. anything chick fila sells. frosted mini wheat cereal. lots of water with limes. ice cream (from kline's is the best and almost eating it daily. uh-oh.). greek salads. frozen grapes and blueberries. i do eat protein and veggies.

*hate coffee for the first 15 weeks and then i am good to go again. but only decaf.

*this pregnancy has been nearly identical to ava's...sick for a little bit and then basically feel like myself just a little larger.

*more anxious for labor and delivery than with ava b/c know i know what is coming.

*i will be wearing leggings basically for the next 4-5 months. don't judge.

*i am finally beginning to feel our little one move inside me. not a lot but enough know he/she is there.

*ava loves to talk to my belly and yesterday told me she was going to teach the baby to dance.
ah, i love that.

*hey little baby...your daddy is obsessed with you. get ready. he can't wait to meet you.

baby gender will be revealed next week tuesday. can. not. wait.


  1. Ahh that little bump is precious! Can't wait to hear what you're having!

  2. YOU LOOK SO BEAUTIFUL and I seriously can't wait for TUESDAY!!!

  3. Libby,

    I started reading your blog about a year ago. I started at the beginning and feel as if we are friends, even though as you said above, I don't know you at all. I love reading about your family and how you adjust to everything that has happened. I was especially excited to find out about your second pregnancy. We are actually pregnant at the same time and I think are almost the same as far as due dates. I will be 20 weeks tomorrow. I love seeing baby bumps, even as small as yours! Good luck at your appointment and I am rooting for you and your family from Newnan, Georgia.

    ps I'm having a boy, I cheated, I'm an ultrasound technician so I looked early.

  4. You look wonderful! Can't wait to find out what it is!

  5. Dear Libby,
    Thanks for sharing your picture, and you look great.
    I loved being pregnant. I felt like a blessed participant in a tremendous miracle.
    Love, Tracy

  6. You are glowing with your baby bump well on the way! What a joyous time for you and your family. I know you're savoring Every Single Moment!

  7. Libby,

    Not to repeat everything Michelle said above, but I have been reading your blog for awhile now as well and it has been a big encouragement to me. I am also pregnant (with my first!) and I think we are due days apart! I will be 20 weeks on Monday and we just found out today that it's a boy! Anyway, I look forward to reading your updates and being able to follow your pregnancy journey!


  8. Love the baby bump Libby!! Wish we lived closer to you and could go through pregnancy together. Sydney, our little girl, is due Halloween - I would imagine baby Ryder number 2 and little Sydney would be great friends and Ava could teach them both to dance. She is going to be a great big sister! Love and miss you!!!

  9. oh i love pregnant Libby!!! you look beautiful as always Libby. Everyone here is waiting anxiously to see what little one will be! Also I cannot wait to see you guys next weekend!
