20 weeks


Oh sweet, third child; growing beautifully amidst the palaver of busy life. I'm 20 weeks pregnant and feeling incredibly well, albeit a bit tired.

Daniel and I spoke about this baby for a long while before we decided that the time was right. And only now, halfway through the pregnancy, does it feel real. We keep remembering what's to come: labour (!), the first glance, naming, sibling love (and rivalry?), baby breath, kisses, sleeplessness, breastfeeding, copious nappy changes, adjustment, transition, new beginnings. For now I'm relishing in my swelling belly and the constant, energetic kicks. There is new life and it never ceases to amaze.

We constantly wonder; is it a boy or a girl? What do you think?

I'm wearing this dress most days because comfort is priority

  1. Do you plan to find out the sex Jodi? I am 16 weeks with our third child - we have a boy and a girl already. I didn't find out with my first and we found out because of a necessary ultrasound with the second around the midway mark. After finding out with my daughter, I felt a bit like I'd cheated myself of that moment when they are born and announce their own selves to the world. I think I'd like #3 to surprise us :-)

  7. Pregnancy really suits you, you look so at peace. I thought you were having a boy after you mentioned that Che likes the name Tintin! I'm wrong almost always though. I loved having a surprise, i'm so thankful that i waited, the surprise is just too delicious although from the moment i realised I was pregnant i just knew that i was having a girl.

  10. I have been wrong about the various sexes of all 4 of my children (haha) so I'm pretty useless at guessing. However...Happy Half-way! Enjoy every moment - the baby kicks, the dreamy dress, the wondering …everything!

  11. Looking so lovely Jodi! I'm four weeks behind you and just beginning to feel those fluttery movements. I feel like this one is a girl (but in all my dreams I'm surrounded by wavy haired boys!) Magical...

  12. Wow, you look just lovely. It's amazing how fast this time flies. (Did I really just type that, because it usually irritates me to no end to have people say that :) Glad to hear you are feeling well.

  14. I find pregnancy so fascinating and beautiful. It never ceases to amaze me, what a wonder the human body is. I loved everything about pregnancy, and I have convinced myself, the birth too! Again, the wonder of the human body!
    You look positively glowing and your dress super comfortable.
    Is it a boy, is it a girl.....we will look forward to hearing! x
