Oh Baby TWO!

We are so extremely excited to share that we are expecting our second child around July 8th!! I'm currently 14 weeks and out of the first trimester so I thought this would be the perfect week to come out of online hiding and start weekly updates.

How far along? 14 weeks

Total weight gain/loss: I don't think that I've gained more than maybe a pound so far. I'm really trying to keep to as clean and healthy a diet as possible this time around since I gained a lot when pregnant with Hadley and it wasn't fun to lose it once she was here.

Maternity clothes? All of my regular pants still fit but BARELY! I have bought one pair of maternity skinny jeans since all of my pants and jeans from when I was pregnant with Hadley are too big since I was heavier. I will likely need to start wearing them full time really soon since the buttons on my regular jeans/pants are just hitting in a really uncomfortable spot right now.

Stretch marks? No new ones but Hadley gave me quite a few so I'm by no means genetically lucky that way. 

Symptoms:  I am feeling pretty good. Nausea is slowly improving but car sickness is still in full force. It's totally worth it to live with any symptoms though so no complaints here.

Sleep: I have been waking up at 3:30 a.m. nearly every morning and struggling to fall back asleep. I hope to get a maternity Snoogle pillow soon.

Best moment this week:
Announcing our pregnancy to friends and family both in person and then on Facebook. It's so nice to not have to keep a secret anymore!!

Have you told family and friends: Yes!

Miss Anything? Not yet :)

Movement: Not yet

Food cravings: Indian, Chik-fil-A, pizza

Anything making you queasy or sick: Raw meat is not my friend right now and potato chips are seriously gag worthy.

Have you started to show yet:  My stomach continues to fluctuate in size. I still have days where I don't think that I look pregnant at all and other days I say to myself, wow, this belly really IS growing. 

Baby is a: ??? We will find out in February!

Belly Button in or out? Still in.

Wedding rings on or off? On

Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy!

Looking forward to: Our anatomy scan when I'm 20 weeks. We continue to pray for a healthy baby.

I'm working on getting a weekly picture with Hadley but she doesn't always want to cooperate so we will have some tearful shots and that's completely okay. We will laugh about it when she's older. ;)
