3rd month! Moving right along!

Merry late Christmas and a very happy New Year! It doesn't look like it, but I'm starting to show!  I'm excited!  It's always fun to start looking pregnant (why yes stranger, I am a cute pregnant lady, and thanks for your congrats!)- a nicer symptom than being tired, nauseated, or in pain.

How far along? 14 weeks- woot!  Pretty sure all the websites now say I'm done with the 1st trimester.
Baby's size? 
A peach!- about 3.5 inch, almost 1.5 oz. Wow! Baby#2 has grown a lot in the last month!

Maternity clothes? Yep!  And officially today I had to do the hairtie trick with my regular pants (clean from the dryer, so they're a little tight)- getting excited to show a little bump!
Sleep: Mostly good- I'm waking up more often to get comfy, but at least I'm asleep most of the night.

Best moment(s) this past month: Spending Christmas (and extended holiday :o) in Iowa!  It's been so fun watching Simon bond with the other grandkids and how much he's growing!  It makes Nathan and I miss having a baby- good thing I'm cooking baby #2! :o)

Miss Anything? Having energy and food sounding good.  I haven't thrown up in weeks (thank you magical meds from my OBGYN!), but nothing really sounds good still.  I just grab food that doesn't make me gag thinking about it and eat it without thinking about it.

Movement: Nope.

Anything making you queasy or sick: Rice and spicy stuff.  Blah!
Cravings: Bagel bites and oreos today! Hooray for New Years Eve treats and snacks!

Labor Signs: Nope.

Gender: Not until 20 week appt.

Symptoms: My hips are hurting more when I sit or lay on the ground for a long time
Belly Button in or out? In- hopefully for many many months!

Wedding rings on or off? On! 
Happy or Moody most of the time: Feeling a lot better this month- really felt the love when we announced the baby, so thank you people of my life!
Looking forward to: California family trip coming up!  We're still debating on doing a date to Disneyland or take Simon for his first trip.

Month 2!


Yay!  We're moving right along and close to telling everyone!  I want to do a cute Christmas card to announce to extended family (immediates already know) and close friends, but we'll see if that actually happens...

How far along? About 9-10 weeks
Baby's size? 
A cherry or prune- about 1 inch, almost .1 oz, wow that's small!

Maternity clothes? Yes, but I still fit into my regular pants- wahoo!
Sleep: Pretty good, no real trouble except for some scary dreams.

Best moment(s) this past month: Spending Thanksgiving with my family was pretty great, especially how much fun Simon had being spoiled by all of them!  He learned a new word- "num-nums" which he used to get more cookies.  It happened very often... who can resist such a cutie begging for "num-nums"??

Miss Anything? Not feeling queasy!  Whenever it's time to eat, nothing sounds good.  And when something sounds good, there is still a good chance it won't stay down :-/

Movement: Not this month, but "they" say (books, internets, doctors) that after the first baby you can start feeling as early as 13 weeks- yay!  That's soon!

Anything making you queasy or sick: Brushing my teeth is just impossible!  Pretty much veggies, most meats, sometimes milk and dairy. And definitely anything that I've already thrown up, which list is getting pretty big...

Cravings: Breakfast sandwiches.  Like an English muffin with Canadian bacon and cheese like my Uncle Scott makes... yum!

Labor Signs: Nope, way too early still.

Gender: We don't know yet, though Nathan and I keep using male pronouns (e.g. he, him).  Although since I'm much more sick this time, I'm kinda hoping it's a girl like the wivestales say!

Symptoms: Tired, super nauseated, sometimes my hips feel out of place.
Belly Button in or out? In!

Wedding rings on or off? On!
Happy or Moody most of the time: Moody- lots of stabby and super sad feels. :o(  Working on getting that a little better, but any prayers or happy thoughts are appreciated!
Looking forward to: Christmas!  Just can't wait to visit more family- it's just so fun showing off Simon's new tricks to family!  Also hoping we can introduce snow to him!

Month 1

 Here we go again! 

I'm pregnant with baby #2!  Hooray!  The internets say my due date is probably around June 30, but we'll see what the doctor says at my first appt next month. 

This time around, I'm going to be a little less ambitious with a post each week.  Instead, I'll just be doing a post each month.  Get excited people- it's going to be a fun ride!

How far along? About 5 weeks- I'll know for sure when I have my first drs appt in November.
Baby's size? 
A peppercorn!  About 0.05 inches and 0.04 oz.  So tiny!

Maternity clothes? Yep- confession, I still wore some of the pregnancy pants the month before I found out I was pregnant again. Didn't quite get back to my pre- pregnancy size and some weeks I run out of pants :-/
Sleep: Mostly good, some nights are hard.

Best moment(s) this past month: Finding out I was pregnant!

Miss Anything? Gooey eggs!  It was the hardest to give up last time too... :o(

Movement: Maybe?  Thought I felt a flutter, but I probably was just having hopeful feels since the baby's still so very small.

Anything making you queasy or sick: Brushing teeth is getting harder.

Cravings: Pizza Rolls! Though it might be because I'm on a health challenge... :o)

Labor Signs: Nope

Gender: TBD.

Symptoms: More tired.
Belly Button in or out? In!

Wedding rings on or off? On! But my hands never went back to their regular size from the first pregnancy, so I had to get them resized.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy!
Looking forward to: Hearing the baby's heart beat next month!  And Thanksgiving!
