BUMPDATE // Baby #2 // 11 Weeks

HOW FAR ALONG// 11 weeks

BABY SIZE// About the size of a fig.


Well I thought things were looking up at 10 weeks but this week the naseau and sour stomach came back with a vengeance!! Wow this stuff is rough for sure! There have been many tears shed.

MATERNITY CLOTHES// Maternity jeans wouldn't stay up on my booty so I went back to my jeans with the rubberband trick and loose shirts. I just look like I've had too many biscuits right now and I'm not ready for maternity tops.

SLEEP// Sleep has been great for the most part except when I feel super bad.


GENDER// will find out 20 weeks


feeling good enough to be able to keep up with Finley and enjoy us doing things. This has been one of the hardest things for me being sick like this. 


 Last Wednesday was my official 11 weeks and I was so sick I hardly didn't make it thru the workout, we had to change some things, and I left without doing cardio. I came home and went back to bed.

EMOTIONS// up and down just depending on how I've been feeling

DREAMS// none that I can remember

HUBBY'S THOUGHTS// He's been so amazing taking care of me and Finley!

3 AMIGAS THOUGHTS// Kyli is all over me and Mara and Kyli are loving all over Fin... or maybe its the other way around. I've had to watch Finley this week with their licking and her putting her face all over them!


Well this has nothing to do with being pregnant but Shane and I did get out for a date Friday. It had been a long time and I was pretty sick and couldn't wait to get home, but it was nice having that time with him.

BUMPDATE // Baby #2 // 9 & 10 Weeks

HOW FAR ALONG// 9 weeks

BABY SIZE// about the size of a grape

The last two weeks have been very challenging. I've been very nauseous off and on (with Finley I was only nauseous at night and I would go to bed and wake up ready to go for the most part), there have been times when I've felt like I have a virus and my stomach is very sour. I have gagged on my toothbrush, water, (I threw this up in Shane's truck on the way to our first appt. I think nerves were related to that as well), and even bread if you can believe that. When I first found out I was pregnant I was eating good and when all the nausea kicked in, I've eaten things from fruit, to french fries and milkshakes, to nothing but saltine crackers. The only good meal I've had in a couple weeks is a salad and spaghetti squash. Saltines and gingerale or Sprite Zero are my BFF right now.


None except my shorts


I have slept well except I have woken up from 5-7ish AM sick.


GENDER// We don't know yet.


I feel like I was just feeing back to normal when I found out. I do miss energy and I would love to not be nauseous with this nasty bloated, sour feeling in my stomach.


I had signed up with my trainer again and we work out every Wednesday. I've done a few days of t25 and a couple days by myself at the gym. When I start getting hot I feel like I'm going to vomit and feel bad all over again so I feel like its pointless. I did do the saddlebag video once and that REALLY got my blood pumping and I was SORE.


When I found out, it completely explained a part of my phsycoticness. (If that's not a word I just made it up) I don't feel like I've been excited because I've felt so sick. If I can just be completely honest, this was a huge surprise and I was very comfortable where we were as a family. So it's just taken me a little bit for the shock to wear off and realize, we are doing this!!

DREAMS// Only a few crazy ones.


3 AMIGAS THOUGHTS// I'm sure they would love a little more attention.


Monday 9.26 I felt the best I had in awhile. Shane says that I did entirely way too much and it set me back. I just felt the best I had in days and was ready to get stuff done! 
I realize Finley is only 1 but one morning I was sitting on the couch and she was standing up on the floor facing me... she lifted my shirt and patted my belly. I just about lost it. Maybe it feels different to her?? Or maybe it was just God saying everything is going to be OK.


HOW FAR ALONG// 10 weeks

BABY SIZE// kumquat


I felt so much better this week! I wasn't near as nauseous and I had a little bit of energy.


Just my shorts still. I've tried wearing maternity jeans and they slide down so I went back to my regular jeans with the rubberband trick.


Mostly great.


GENDER// Will find out about 20 weeks


Feeling 100% -- being able to work out great, sour/nauseous feeling being all the way gone.


I've been able to walk the yard and do lunges with Finley in her stroller.  A little bit of t25 and Wednesdays with my trainer.


I feel like I've been great for the most part.. a few teary moments but good.


I don't remember any.


Hubby is just trying to get thru the rest of baseball season!


Kyli has been very clingy and the pups have been loving all over Finley and Finley loving all over them!


I'm honestly so busy that sometimes I forget I'm pregnant except for my expanding waistline and my nausea. I guess that happens when you are running after a 1 year old, working, and keeping up with everything else in your life.

My post on social media was captioned,

"Things you can do to make sure you get pregnant"
these are true events

1. Start separating newborn "toys" from toddler toys.

2. Buy all products you need in preparation for what you think is Aunt Flo coming to see you.

3. In the middle of the night, when your kid refuses to sleep, tell your husband you are NEVER doing this again. (Should've learned my lesson the first time)

4. The next day, box up your maternity clothes.

5. Visit Georgia's newborn (my dear high school friend) in the hospital and when you arrive, announce to her you are NOT pregnant this time. (When I went to see her second, I was about 2 or 3 weeks and didn't know it)

6. Sell a huge baby item.

7. Drink the water. (3 of my friends who were pregnant with me the first time are pregnant again)

All joking aside, we are praying for a healthy baby and feel blessed. I'm actually due May 3rd.. they changed my date.
I'm not going to lie, I've been a little overwhelmed and had some freak out moments. But God knows what He's doing. I just wonder what He was doing while He watched me pack my maternity clothes.
