26 WEEKS PREGNANT WITH BABY #2!

Posted on March 14, 2017 in Mommy

How far along? 26 weeks!
Total weight gain: I still weigh 69kg (152lbs), so no weight gain since last weigh in at 24 weeks. It worries me a bit
because would like this baby to be bigger than Emeline was! 
Maternity clothes? Yes
Stretch marks? No
Sleep: Emeline keeps waking up at night 🙁 We almost pulled an all-nighter one night.
Best moment this week: Getting a tour of a birthing center and my nephew being born!
Miss anything? Being able to workout, so much more than I can explain.
Movement: I am feeling baby move every day. Some days he moves more than others.
Food cravings: Steak (what’s new?)
Anything making you queasy or sick: shrimp, clams, oysters, and strong cheeses
Gender: Boy
Labor signs: No
Symptoms: The extreme PGP that makes it so I can’t walk in the mornings. I have had a lot of round ligament
pain that feels like a really intense side-stitch that keeps getting stronger and stronger.
I have also been a bit moody this week and I’ve been getting tiny breakouts here and there.
Belly button in or out? In, but sometimes out. I have also been so tired.
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or moody most of the time: A bit stressed out this week and moody
Looking forward to: Warm weather
Compared to 1st pregnancy: There is so much more discomfort and pain with this pregnancy.

25 WEEKS PREGNANT WITH BABY #2!

Posted on March 6, 2017 in Mommy

How far along? 25 weeks!
Total weight gain: I didn’t weigh myself this week.
Maternity clothes? Yes
Stretch marks? No
Sleep: I can’t seem to get enough of it.
Best moment this week: Cleaning the room and seeing it clean again haha
Miss anything? Working out, my back is not really better and working out is too painful. I am extremely disappointed.
Movement: He moves a lot when I am sitting or laying down. He must be sleeping when I move. If I wake up in the middle of the night he is always extremely active. I feel nothing like it during the day.
Food cravings: Meat, I am going to buy some.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Only shrimp, clams and oysters, strong cheeses
Gender: Boy
Labor signs: No
Symptoms: PGP, heartburn, exhaustion
Belly button in or out? In, but sometimes half out.
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or moody most of the time: A bit stressed out this week
Looking forward to: Warm weather
Compared to 1st pregnancy: I never remember feeling as tired with Emeline. Yes, there were times when I was tired and I did go to bed earlier, but I am really so tired this time.

Sometimes I take these photos in the evening and sometimes I take them first thing in the morning. I want to take them in the mornings because it is most accurate, but things don’t always work out as you plan!

24 WEEKS PREGNANT WITH BABY #2!

Posted on February 26, 2017 in Mommy

We have made it to 24 weeks! Whenever I see how many weeks along I am I feel like time is going by so slowly when really pregnancy is just a blink of the eye in the grand scheme of things!

How far along? 24 weeks!
Total weight gain: 152lbs, so it looks like 17lbs gained so far. 
Maternity clothes? Yes
Stretch marks? No
Sleep: Good apart from baby keeping me awake at 6am on Saturday morning because he was having a party!
Best moment this week: The gorgeous weather. The sun was out most days!
Miss anything? MEAT! I live in a vegetarian household, meat is expensive to buy and we are trying to save for a house!
Movement: Off and on as always. I can tell it is too early for kick counts because there is no established pattern yet.
Food cravings: Beef
Anything making you queasy or sick: Only shrimp, clams and oysters
Gender: Boy
Labor signs: No
Symptoms: PGP, heartburn, frequent urination (baby sits really low).
Belly button in or out? In, but sometimes half out.
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy
Looking forward to: No more snow. We have barely had any and now the tiny bit we have it just starting to look sad.
Compared to 1st pregnancy: Emeline is still nursing and about a month or two months ago it started to hurt when she latched on. It still hurts, but only for a few seconds. I wasn’t breastfeeding during my first pregnancy obviously, but after feeling nothing while breastfeeding for so long it is weird to feel pain/discomfort again!

23 WEEKS PREGNANCY WITH BABY #2

Posted on February 19, 2017 in Mommy

This week seemed to drag on forever at the start, but now I am shocked it is already Saturday night! It was a pretty normal week for us, but there was a lot of work to be done. We also have a fully packed weekend because a good friend of mine is in town on business! I am still anxiously waiting for summer.

How far along? 23 weeks!
Total weight gain: I’ll update this tomorrow!
Maternity clothes? Yes
Stretch marks? No
Sleep: Emeline has been waking up earlier and earlier every day. This morning she woke up at 4am, so it isn’t so good on the sleep front. I am exhausted. I am dreaming a lot now. Normally I do not remember my dreams.
Best moment this week: Seeing my old friend and getting a video message from my awesome mom!
Miss anything? Rare steak
Movement: Off and on as always. This baby is mostly active in the evenings. Today I think it is a resting day for him because I have only felt two slight movements.
Food cravings: Still Thai food!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Eggs, cheese and shrimp
Gender: Boy
Labor signs: No

22 WEEKS PREGNANT WITH BABY #2

Posted on February 11, 2017 in Mommy

There must just be something about February that makes me want to just jump into April or May! I SERIOUSLY can not wait until spring and I got this crazy feeling yesterday of not being able to wait to meet this baby! I thought that this pregnancy would just pass by me while I chased after my (almost) 2 year old, but no! All of the sudden it seems like everything is moving in slow motion, winter will never end and I’ll be pregnant forever! I think it is just that the daily routine isn’t my favorite right now (I live with my family at the moment) and I feel like it is just going to be this never ending cycle of the same thing every day. Well, no point in moaning on about the little things right?! Honestly, I am happy. I have family, food, a house to live in, clothing and friendship. I hope everyone is having a good February so far!

How far along? 22 weeks!
Total weight gain: According to my non-digital scale I still weigh 147LBS! If I were to say my starting weight with this pregnancy was 135 that would be 12lbs gained!
Maternity clothes?  I started wearing my old nursing tank tops this week and I bought two maternity tops, a maternity sweater and a maternity sweatshirt this week! I also bought another pair of maternity jeans. I am hoping I will be all set for the rest of this pregnancy!
Stretch marks? No
Sleep: I a sleeping fine, but it is getting more and more difficult to share a bed with a toddler!
Best moment this week: Buying some maternity clothing that makes me feel cute and comfortable.
Miss anything? Warmer weather and having our own place.
Movement: Yes, off and on throughout the week, still no pattern yet!
Food cravings: Thai food!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Still eggs, cheese and shrimp, but I try to eat eggs anyway.
Gender: Boy
Labor signs: No
Symptoms: Intense heartburn and bloating/gas!
Belly button in or out? In, but sometimes half out.
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy and tired
Looking forward to: Being able to go outside without a jacket.
Compared to 1st pregnancy: The PGP is bad and I am not working out like I was with Emeline at 22 weeks.

 

Stay tuned for a new update next Saturday!

🙂
