This is the fun part!

My partner and I found the one boy's name we agree on with our first, so if we have a boy, I have no clue what we'll name him! I like River, Tucker, and Kai.

I still stand by kegels, but thanks for the reminder about squats!! My legs have somehow felt weaker the past couple of weeks, so it seems doubly important to make sure muscle strength is still up.

Good for you! What a great attitude.

With my first pregnancy, I remember feeling really in awe of everything my body was going through. I think maybe I was/am romanticizing it a bit! I'm trying to...

Not quite yet, but I feel like I could. The bloating makes it feel like the baby is much bigger than it actually is. I'd be happy in yoga pants for the next 9 months or so :smile:
