big news!

Happy 2015!  Life has been crazy and to add to the craziness, I am beyond thrilled to say that we are expecting #2!!!  I love this little peanut so much already!


Baby E2 is due at the end of June so I am already 16 weeks as I am typing this.  I wanted my kids to be close together in age so this puts Emerson and this baby 23 months apart.  I also want to document my pregnancy just like the last one because I keep looking at my old post now that I am pregnant with my second.  I have to say everything feels different this time.  I have heard people say that is because they think we are having a boy and I have also heard people say it is because of my age...depressing.  The first trimester was ROUGH.  I had nausea almost every afternoon/ evening and was just miserable.  I got sick probably every other day and getting sick at work just flat out sucks.  I was beyond bipolar with food and ate mostly bread and fries.  I would buy something for lunch, take one bite, and toss it out.  I was annoying myself.  It was the hardest in the evening because I didn't have the energy to play with Emerson like I wanted to.  Then Emerson got sick...she got sick a few times and missed all together about a week of school.  Taking care of your sick child when you feel like ass is a joke.  She wasn't sleeping, so no one was sleeping and had bronchitis and then the stomach bug twice....or it made her sick and then came back four days later?  She gave the bug to me so that day was hell.  I cried a lot in December just trying to manage it all - taking care of Emerson, working, taking care of myself, trying to make myself eat and keep it down, plus trying to Christmas shop.  I know I sound like a complainer (well because I am - ask Matt), I just didn't have that bad of a time with my first pregnancy.  I didn't feel well, but I didn't feel miserable plus I had the luxury of coming home from work to just nap.  You can't do that with a toddler.  Thankfully, my husband is awesome and pitched in a ton.  He really is the best guy a girl could ask for.  Plus the sickness is over!  I feel normal again and can enjoy this pregnancy!  The best thing I can really say so far is that the baby is looking healthy and normal at this point which is beyond exciting.   I just can't wait to find out the gender!

15 Weeks!  


Total weight gain:  +2-3.  This was all gained week 5 of my pregnancy before I started feeling bad and then it has been up and down ever since.  I am surprised it isn't higher because I am not being healthy yet.  Fries are my jam.
Maternity clothes:  Umm yes.  Maternity jeans are my favorite.  I still haven’t told work so I am trying to wear just big tops and sweaters rights now.  Basically trying to pull off a moo-moo with pants.  Classy.
Stretch marks:  nope
Sleep:  Actually not bad.  Emerson has been sleeping so we all have been sleeping. Now that I have typed that out she will wake up ready to party at 3.
Best moment this week:  NYE with our friends.  Love my people.
Miss anything?  Yes – being able to eat like a normal person.  I have been much sicker this go around and have to think before I eat anything “will this make me sick?”.  I would love to be able to eat things with tomatoes again….especially salads.  Sometimes I live on the edge and eat them anyways.  This usually has me full of regret hours later.
Movement:  not yet!
Food cravings:  sushi and since I can’t have sushi, Matt has been making me rolls that just have cream cheese and avocado.  And just like last pregnancy, half and half tea, and Jersey Mikes #9 which I get and just microwave but I would like it cold.
Anything making you queasy or sick?  Coffee, bbq (I actually haven’t liked it since my last pregnancy) anything made from a tomatoes with the exception of ketchup, mint things, and even sadly enough chocolate.  Those are the constant ones.  I have a few that hit me day by day.  I feel so bipolar with food.
Gender:  We find out the end of January….can’t wait!
Symptoms:  Nausea and reflux
Happy or Moody:  Emotional?  I cried the other day just thinking about the end of the year and how lucky I am for this baby, our new home, and that my family and friends are all healthy.  Like ugly cried in the car.
Looking forward to:  Finding out the gender and moving!



16 Weeks!



Sorry for the lame selfie at work!  Matt has been working long hours and I keep forgetting to take these.  

Total weight gain: +4
Maternity clothes:  I can still wear most of my clothes, but prefer the comfort of maternity clothes.  Elastic waistbands are the best.
Stretch marks:  I thought I was getting some, but have been putting on stretch mark lotion almost 3 times a day. 
Sleep:  Mostly great…I would love to sleep in past 6 just one morning, but that is part of being a parent!
Miss Anything?  My morning runs.  It is just too cold.
Movement:  Still nothing….can’t wait though!
Food cravings:  Sugar cookies which contributed to my weight gain this week!
Anything making you queasy or sick?  I still avoid coffee, bbq, and tomatoes.  Unlike last week, I am so much better with food.  I am eating dinner again so that is good.  So glad the nausea is behind me.
Gender:  I am not having any gender dreams like I did last time so I can’t wait to officially find out.  Not sure if I mentioned on here, but the nub theory said it was a girl.
Symptoms:  Sleepy…not like I was last month, but I could nap every day and go to bed at 8.
Happy or Moody:  All over the place.  We are trying to buy a house and I was really excited about it and then we found out something expensive is wrong with it and might walk away from the deal.  Such an emotional roller-coaster.
Looking forward to:  Either buying this house, or walking away.  I don’t like being in limbo.
