11 Weeks with Baby #2!

11 Weeks! 

I feel so incredibly blessed to be pregnant again. I love being pregnant and really enjoyed it last time around. So far, it's been a fairly low key pregnancy. I've had the usual nausea, exhaustion, insomnia type stuff but it's all worth it. With this one, I found out I was pregnant very early on. I think right around 4 weeks! When I took the test I was shocked it was positive but so excited! 
The first trimester is always scary and I pray constantly that this little baby is growing and thriving each and every day. Once you lose a baby that fear is always there but we saw our little one dancing around at 8 weeks and heard the heartbeat then! Still, it is SO hard to wait each month to hear it again and get some reassurance.

How Far Long? 11 Weeks, 4 Days
Size of Baby? About the size of a Lime

Total Weight Gain? Oh gosh, I haven't even gone there yet this time around...

Maternity Clothes? Sometimes. Definitely popped out quicker this time though!

Sleep? Insomnia most nights. And having to get up to pee at least once.

Dont know yet- thinking girl though! :)

Best Moment This Week? People that dont "know" I'm pregnant are being able to tell now by looking at me. :o) So fun.

Food Cravings? Food has been hard. This week has been chef salads though.

Food Aversions? 
Iced Coffee for sure. I can't quite figure out what sounds good ever yet. And when I do make or get something, sometimes it doesnt taste good. Lol!

What I'm Looking Forward To: Hearing babies heartbeat

Emotions: Just like last time around my patience has faded. And I can't mask how I'm feeling very well. Whatever I'm feeling, it shows! I do however, cry easier at movies, songs, etc.

Symptoms: Tired most of the time, by mid afternoon I am toast. Not sleeping well at night isnt helping that. I had some round ligament pain one day this week that was weird and uncomfortable. Peeing a lot.

WEEKS 4-10
SYMPTOMS: Nausea, tiredness, sore boobs, trouble eating, indigestion, insomnia

Positive test about 4 weeks!

Ultrasound confirmation at 8 weeks.

Jack's 2nd Birthday!

I can't believe you are two years old my little crazy Mr. Jack! You are my world and I cannot even put into words how much I love you and how blessed I am to be your mommy.  Daddy and I both love you so much!!!

  •  You weigh 28 lbs
  • You're in Size 2T Clothes
  • Size 5 diapers
  • You're in size 7 almost 8 shoes
  • You've started to potty train- love to pee outside. If you are naked you will go stand on a stool and pee in the toilet all by yourself! You have no interest in going #2 on the potty though...
  • Everything is "Me" (as in me do it) right now
  • You hate getting dressed and anytime we are outside you want your clothes off
  • You talk a lot now and other people are starting to understand much of what you are saying. (or yelling mostly, haha!) Saying a lot of two word phrases. 
  • You know the number 2 very well. Mostly from mommy counting to 3 before you get in trouble. Now when I say 1 you say 2. Ha!
  • Your favorite show right now is Bubble Guppies still (which you can say oh so adorably!)
  • You finally gave up your nighttime bottle right after your second birthday!
  • The binky might be a bigger problem.... one I am not quite ready to tackle yet!
  • You are still a mama's boy and super clingy to me. But most of the time I dont mind. :o)
  • You love your grandparents. You ask to see them everyday.
  • You take one nap at 1:30 now. On occasion you will fall asleep early or take two naps, but not very often.
  • Sleep from about 8:30/9:00-7:30/8:00.  Not too bad!
