I love having my first pregnancy documented here. You know how they say you forget the pain of labor? Well, that’s bullshit because I remember ev-e-ry second of that. What I am blurry on is the pregnancy specifics of what happened at what week/month. So, having the weekly surveys from last pregnancy is a godsend and really fun to look back on.
That said….check me out when I was 14 weeks pregnant with baby #1
What a difference….::deep sigh::
How Far Along? (9/28/13) – 14 weeks 2 days according to last period // Measuring at 15 weeks ! 25 (ish) weeks to go!
Symptoms: Nausea is back, but not as bad as before. Still super tired and getting very emotional. I feel like I didn’t start getting this emotional until around the halfway point with my first pregnancy. My boobies hurt bigtime and my belly is super itchy too. Oh yeah, and I can’t poop to save my life.
Total Weight Gain/Loss: 2 lbs gained so far!! Little bunny is about 3-4 inches and weighs about an ounce while being the size of a tangerine…allegedly. I feel like my arms and legs are getting skinnier while my belly gets bigger. Same thing felt like it was happening last pregnancy too.
Maternity Clothes: Ummm….I need some preggo panties asap. Otherwise, still in my normal pants and big blousey shirts. I have one maternity shirt that I’m wearing…only because it’s the only one not packed away right now.
Stretch Marks: Using my Bio Oil to avoid getting any this pregnancy. Pray for me!
Sleep: I’m not sleeping so well. I wake up to pee too much. Plus I’m already sleeping lightly ever since Roey was born.
Food Cravings: Spicy, flavorful stuff, huge glasses of OJ, pad thai w/ lots of limes, everything bagels with cream cheese and tomatoes. I really love salt. And now that I’m writing this…I’m hungry again.
Best Moment This Week: Doctor appointment, hearing the heartbeat and skyping via sonogram!! This little bunny refused to show us the goods! The ultrasound tech took her guess but said it’s not a firm answer. I can’t believe how much this one was moving around. Rohan was active and always messing with the ultrasound techs too. I found out that I’m measuring 5 days ahead but for now my EDD is staying the same. Also found out that I need to eat more and chug a gallon of water a day, I had no blood to give!
Movement: Well, the child is definitely doing gymnastics in there, but I have yet to feel it. I know I’m in for it once I do. I’ve got another karate master on my hands jut like Rohan was.
Belly Button In Or Out? Oh please, this thing has been halfway out since conception.
What I Miss: POOPING!
What I Am Looking Forward To: Feeling the movement. 6 weeks when we get our anatomy scan and find out the gender.
Weekly Wisdom: Don’t secretly hate your husband for not being as excited about baby #2 as he was for baby #1. And don’t hate him for not pampering you like he did with baby #1, especially if he can’t walk. LOL.
Any advice for me at this stage in my second pregnancy?
