Total Weight Gain/Loss: ??? Not sure, probably not much. This kiddo isn't hungry and doesn't like for me to eat anything! Acid reflux is killing me! Maybe I'm growing a monkey or some other hairy being... ;)
Maternity Clothes: Oh yes! Baby P2.0 made me super chunky really fast. :)
Best Moment This Week: I would say the best moment was spending a few days finally getting my classroom set up. Baby P2.0 is trying to get it together and help me to get things in order.
Gender: ? We should find out soon! We have no preference, but Lucy really wants a "sister". We are trying to tell her that it could be boy, but she is very adamant about wanting a sister.
Movement: I've been feeling Baby P2.0 for a few weeks now, maybe since 12 weeks or so. I think I'm feeling Baby P2.0 sooner because I know what it is I'm actually feeling.
Food Cravings: Nah, but with this one I'm having to eat smaller meals more frequently.
Aversions: The brushing of the teeth - again. I can't take it. Also, some smells are getting to me. ugh...
What I Miss: Comfortable sleep and being able to eat without chasing it with tums. I miss energy and not feeling tired all.the.time. I don't think I felt this tired with Lucy, but then again I wasn't chasing a 3 year old around and preparing to start my teaching career! :)
Sleep: Propped up on lots of pillows and multiple potty breaks during the night.
What I'm Looking Forward To: Changing hospitals and dr offices. My doc moved to uab and I was going to give it a try. B U T uab is awful. The only good thing about my experience there has been my dr. And we all know they aren't present the whole time during birth and sometimes aren't even on call when baby comes. They scheduled out my appointments for the remainder of my pregnancy, but most of my appointments were with the nurse - and NO offense to nurses at all. They are my favorite people!! Nurse Shea delivered Lucy! Several family members are nurses, so I respect them so much. But, when I go to see my dr, I want to see her. This is what I'm paying for (and believe me, we are p a y i n g for this kiddo!)
Baby's Size: About the size of a nectarine.
Lucy's Announcement about Her New Baby!
First Ultrasound! - 9 Weeks
And Baby P2.0 - We love you. We are over the moon excited for you to be joining our family. Things are very different this time around, just because our lives our different. This article explains it so well, but the last part is my favorite. Here it is: 15. LovabilityThe first child: Brought the most powerful of all love into my life for the first time.
The next one: Brought the most powerful of all love into my life for the first time, again. (My apologies if the sentiment makes you throw up in your mouth, that is just the way it is.)
