Baby M 2.0 Update- Week 16

Two posts in one day! Does that some what make up for my lack of posts lately?
I figured I’d better hurry and post my week 16 update since I am in week 17 now. 

How far along? 16 weeks
Total weight gain: 4 lbs
Maternity clothes? Not really. I did wear some maternity shorts this week but I really don’t have to yet. I just wanted to be comfortable while hiking and walking around the zoo with my family while they were in town.
Stretch marks?
Not new ones… just the ones from Miss P. 😛
Sleep: Sleeping rather well. I’ve had a few rough nights due to my congestion.  

Best moment this week: Celebrating Miss P’s first birthday and spending time with my family. I can’t believe my baby girl is 1!

Miss Anything? Breathing normally

Movement: I
am pretty sure I am feeling the baby. It isn’t a lot and it is only
when I am in certain positions but when I feel it, holy cow, I think
this baby may hurt me when it is bigger! lol
Food cravings: Not really which is no surprise because I really didn’t crave anything with P either. 
Anything making you queasy or sick: Still
when I get really congested and can’t breathe it makes me sick. Other
than that, it is when I let too much time pass between snacks or meals.
Gender: Don’t know yet. Hopefully find out June 26th if baby cooperates!
Labor Signs: Hope not! 
Belly Button (in or out): In

Wedding Rings (on or off): On
Symptoms: Morning sickness- though I think it is FINALLY going away and Congestion! BLAH! I did have a little sciatic nerve pain a few days as well since I was on my feet party prepping, cleaning, and walking around places with my family so much.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Pretty happy.
Looking forward to: Getting outside more now that it is finally warm and pretty out. P got a fun little pool for her birthday so I am looking forward to seeing her play in that for the first time.

Week 15 Baby M 2.0 Update

I have not been on the computer in days hence the no posts. 
Thought I would jump on for a second to write a Baby M 2.0 post while I eat a little snack in between cleaning and creating things for P’s 1st birthday. 

How far along? 15 weeks
Total weight gain: 4 lbs
Maternity clothes? nope
Stretch marks?
Not new ones… just the ones from Miss P. 😛
Sleep: Sleeping rather well. I’ve had a few rough nights due to my congestion.  

Best moment this week: Hearing Baby M’s heartbeat at my appt. Friday. 150 is looking good.

Miss Anything? The feeling of NOT being nauseous!

Movement: I am pretty sure I am feeling the baby. It isn’t a lot and it is only when I am in certain positions but when I feel it, holy cow, I think this baby may hurt me when it is bigger! lol
Food cravings: Nope- just still trying to eat and not get nauseous.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Still when I get really congested and can’t breathe it makes me sick. Other than that, it is when I let too much time pass between snacks or meals.
Gender: Don’t know yet.
Labor Signs: Hope not! 
Belly Button (in or out): In

Wedding Rings (on or off): On
Symptoms: Morning sickness and Congestion! BLAH!
Happy or Moody most of the time: Pretty happy.
Looking forward to: P’s 1st birthday on Friday! I can’t believe she is one!! My family arrives that day as well so it will be great to see them and celebrate Miss P on Saturday at her party.

Hello Week 14 and HELLO second Trimester! 

 
How far along? 14 weeks
Total weight gain: 1.5 lbs
Maternity clothes? nope
Stretch marks?
Not new ones… just the ones from Miss P. 😛
Sleep: Sleeping great so far! 

Best moment this week: Celebrating my first Mother’s Day and watching Miss P trying to walk more and more. 
Miss Anything? The feeling of NOT being nauseous!

Movement: Nope, not yet. But there have been a few times that I feel a sharp something or other depending on how my belly is positioned and think… baby?!
Food cravings: Not really craving anything yet. If I can eat any food, and a complete meal- that’s a success! 
Anything making you queasy or sick: I have been feeling sick after most of my dinners lately no matter what I eat. When I get congestion, I want to be sick. And still the occasional feeling of just my hair on my neck makes me feel sick. 
Gender: Don’t know yet.
Labor Signs: Hope not! 
Belly Button (in or out): In

Wedding Rings (on or off): On
Symptoms: Morning sickness and Congestion! BLAH! And a day ago, my sciatic nerve bugged me for a little bit but luckily that went away. 
Happy or Moody most of the time: Pretty happy.
Looking forward to: I have a doctor’s appt. on Friday so looking forward to hearing that little heartbeat again!

Baby M 2.0 Pregnancy Update: Beginning through Week 13

I am officially out of the first trimester, thank goodness! 
I am truly hoping that the morning sickness will be on its way out REALLY soon too. 
I have been slightly better the past 2 days, well until the evening hits, so maybe that is a good sign. 
I thought I better start my pregnancy update posts now as well. 
I took weekly pictures with Miss P and I’ve been doing it with this baby as well.
I’ll do a little recap of the past weeks and then do a normal update post for this week tomorrow.
I feel like I started popping immediately with this baby. No surprise really since you do normally show faster with your second child and I figured it would be fast since I got pregnant so soon after Miss P.

I felt great and had a lot of energy in the beginning, which was strange for me since 3 days after I found out I was pregnant with P I was sick as a dog! 
Morning sickness didn’t really hit me until I was about 7 1/2 weeks pregnant. Of course Travis made some comment about me not being sick yet and then the next morning I got sick. I think he jinxed me! lol 
I have been sick but not nearly as much as I was with P. I’ve gagged numerous times and have no idea how I haven’t actually gotten sick. But I was nauseous 24/7.
On my worst sickness days, I would literally have to block P into our family room area while I laid on the couch all day watching her play. Poor girl! 
The one thing that totally sucks is even before I knew I was pregnant, I started getting congested and that is still here! What stinks, is as soon as I start feeling like I can’t breathe, I start to gag. SO NOT FUN! And getting sick when you can’t breathe is definitely not fun! 
Body wise though, I’ve have felt great. No pain. With P, I was already hurting in week 10. 
These weeks, morning sickness was still here. 
As you can see, in some of my pics I look super rough- no make up, hair up off neck- otherwise I would want to be sick just feeling it touch my neck, and super comfy clothes. I can’t stand the pressure of jeans on my belly when I don’t feel good. I’ve pretty much LIVED in comfy clothes these past few weeks. Poor Travis gets so excited when he sees me in jeans and if I put make up on– that’s a HUGE treat! lol 
Congestion is still around. Hate it and unfortunately from what I’ve heard and read, it won’t be going any where until after this baby comes out. BLAH!
Body still feels pretty good. I did start having a few aches at the end of week 12 and in week 13 in my pelvic area but only on my right side. Guess that side just needed a little more stretching. lol 
Weight wise- I’ve barely gained. 
I weighed myself right after I found out I was pregnant. When I went in for my first appt. at 8 wks where I turn in paper work and they take my vitals, I gained 2 lbs but by my first real appt. at 10 wks, I had lost those 2 lbs. I guess even though I haven’t been sick too much, it is still keeping the weight off, that and the constant nausea makes it hard to eat. 
I think I have gained about 1 lb. and a half back since my last appt. That is just going on my scale at home so whose knows by the doctor’s scale. 
I think that pretty much sums up that last few weeks. 
Tomorrow I will do my normally weekly update post for this week.

{Feature Friday} #111

Perhaps it’s because morning sickness is still lingering or that I’ve been planning P’s birthday party, but this week has flown by. 
And since Friday is here, it is time for another Feature Friday post!
