Hi Friends! It’s been ages and I've been wondering when I would finally have the drive to start the blog back up. One of my favorite things to do is make a fresh cup of coffee, sit down and get lost in writing about our life adventures... so I don’t' know why I stopped? Anyways…
So much has happened but lets start with the biggest and most exciting...
WE ARE PREGNANT! Baby is due October 17th and we are over the moon! This little one will complete our family! I cam so excited to have a fall baby, October is my favorite month plus Phil, Camden and I are all born in the Spring/early Summer so it will be nice to have a gap in celebrating birthdays $$$$
Currently, I am 14 weeks and oh so happy to be in the second trimester, as the last couple months have been brutal! Quite the opposite as my first pregnancy, I have been extremely tired and just plain sick. Thankfully, I have been feeling a little less like a cranky zombie and more like a human this week! Woohoo!
Camden is so excited to be a big brother! He has already told me he will help with daiper changes and feedings lol. Some days he talks about how much he loves his baby brother and how they are going to play trucks and some days he says he loves his baby sister soo... I suppose that means he would be happy with either!
The smell of my spice cabinet makes me dry heave, so no thank you.
Meat. Ugh, I cook it for the boys but it’s a battle to not throw up now.
Beer? Uh, this is a weird one for me since I am (was) a wine and cocktails kind of gal. The smell of beer literally makes my mouth water!
Raw Oysters... another thing I can't have (basically I am torturing myself with my cravings)
Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches
Pickles (cliché pregnancy craving but OMG… GIMMIE ALL THE PICKLES!)
My sleep has been all over the place. Some nights I sleep perfectly and others I literally go crazy laying there waiting for the alarm to go off. I have been using my Himalayan salt lamp, which has helped calm my anxiety and turn off my brain.
My pre-pregnancy weight was much more healthier than with Camden. I was 97 lbs. at my first appointment with him, but this time around I came in at 112 lbs. and have gained 1 pound so far. Lets hope I don’t gain FIFTY FREAKING POUNDS again!
How I Have Been Feeling?
Moods are pretty consistent with random bursts of psycho. I think I have just been too tired to be a total psycho soo that’s cool. LOL
The tears have just started and mostly because I can’t stand that Camden is growing up so fast. I have been watching old videos of him on my phone and I just sob. Like full blown tears streaming down my face and dripping on absolutely everything.
I am a little uncomfortable with my body right now, which I expected. I am starting to get a little bump, which only really fits in high-waisted yoga pants or stuffed under a skirt or dress. Bump also looks like it could be beer belly so I have been embracing allll the flowy shirts!
I did not expect to feel baby until at least 18/20 weeks but at 13 weeks I started feeling little flutters. I went in for an ultrasound and asked about it. Was it just tummy toots or is that my little baby? Apparently, it is totally possible to feel baby as early as 12 weeks with your second baby. So yea, I can already feel my little bean bouncing around.
Boy or Girl?
We will find out May 21!
I haven’t bought much for baby yet, as we have so much leftover from Camden but I am sure that will change soon. I love baby shopping!
Thank you for reading and more blog posts will be coming soon! I have so much to update you all on!
