All I have to say is.. Thank god for Instagram and iPhones
or else this poor second baby would have even less documentation
of his existence.
Total Weight Gained?: No idea. I'll get back to you.
Maternity Clothes: Heck yes. Elastic waist bands fo-eva. No, seriously.
Sleep: Like the dead. Actually, that's a lie. I just wanted to say that. I live in a constant state of exhaustion so falling asleep is no trouble at all. You know, after I've gotten myself into a comfortable position. Which alone, takes roughly thirty to forty minutes. Once I'm asleep, I usually stay this way until getting up to pee around 3am. And then? I might as well be up for the day. I've been having the hardest time falling back to sleep after waking up at that ungodly hour.
Best Moment of the Week? Well.. The Husband first felt the baby from the outside on January 31st, so that was pretty cool and worthy of documentation.
Movement? All the time. M2 is ridiculously active in the early evenings and right before bedtime. He also loves to move around after snacks and when loud music is played!
Food Craving? Salt and peppered avocados, guacamole, Mexican. Fruity sour candy.
Food aversions: Whatever sounds good at the moment works for me. No real aversions this time around.
Morning sickness? Has been replaced by the world's worst case of flaming heartburn. With Carter, I had heartburn my entire pregnancy but was able to keep it at bay with Tums. This time? No dice. It's so painful. So much that I have plans to ask for an Rx to help quall the volcano in my esophagus at my next doctor's appointment.
Gender? C's going to have a little BROTHER!
Labor Signs? Braxton Hicks have started rearing their ugly head about week 21. Those suckers are such a pain in the ass.
Belly Button? Out. Like way, way out. And never going back.
What I miss? Non-pregnant clothes. Being skinny. Seriously. The Husband and I went to see The Vow in theaters right before Valentine's Day and if you've seen it, you'll understand what I'm about to say. Post-Accident Rachel McAdams? Might as well have been shopping in my closet. The cropped skinnies? The cardigans, the blazers and the tailored button downs? The flats and loafers? Gah. I miss my old clothes. I didn't start feeling like this until closer to the end with Carter but as it seems, everything rears its ugly head just a little bit earlier the second time around.
What I'm looking forward to: Cleaning out the office, ordering M2's bedding, working on C's Big Boy room and beginning the nursery details!
