Healthy Pregnancy 2 – 39 Weeks

healthy pregnancy 2 Jun 15, 2017

How far along? 39 Weeks

Baby Size: A pumpkin

Weight gain: Holding steady at 35.5lbs

Maternity clothes? I mostly wear one pair of maternity jeans at this point since they are the only pair that don’t roll down or feel too constricting. By about 4:00 I am ready to quit pants all together though. Anyone else go through this?

Belly Button in or out? Out

Best moment this week: We got to tour the hospital, and we filled out all of the paper work where the baby will be born. It’s a really nice hospital and it’s comforting knowing that we have done all the leg work for when baby is ready to roll in. Now we wait!

Miss Anything? Still missing that quality sleep. I never had many issues sleeping with our first. In fact, I think I slept better during that entire pregnancy than I have in my entire life. Between peeing every hour, regardless of when I stop drinking liquids, and having a cold now, I’m lucky to sleep 2 or 3 hours straight. I will probably get MORE sleep with...

Healthy Pregnancy 2 – 38 Weeks

healthy pregnancy 2 Jun 08, 2017

How far along? 38 Weeks

Baby Size: A winter melon

Weight gain: 35.5lbs

Maternity clothes? I have one pair of maternity jeans that I wear pretty much all the time, and about four shirts I circulate. Most of my maternity shirts are too short on me!

Belly Button in or out? Out

Best moment this week: Seeing big brother walk around and sleeping with his baby. Hopefully this is a sign that he will tolerate baby brother…

Miss Anything? Quality sleep. This week has been a rough week of sleep between 34932 pee breaks every night and thinking about all of the stuff I want to get done.

Movement: He seems to be especially active when I am driving. Seems safe.

Food cravings: All the fruit. Continued. Nectarines, pineapple, oranges, strawberries, and mangos.

Gender: Boy #2!

Looking forward to: Feeling somewhat organized for the baby. He will eventually bunk with big brother, but to begin with he will be in our room. Right now is dresser...

Healthy Pregnancy 2 – 36 Weeks

healthy pregnancy 2 May 25, 2017

How far along? 36 Weeks

Baby Size: A papaya

Weight gain: No scale this week either, but at least 32.5.

Maternity clothes? I was all about shorts and dresses the last few days, but since it is cooler here, I’ll be rocking some severe mom jeans that have a maternity waist, with my husband’s sweatshirts.

Belly Button in or out? Out

Best moment this week: Finally arriving to our new home and seeing where baby will be living.

Miss Anything? My legs have been really tired lately when I do weighted workouts or anything besides walking/running. I’m sure it is just the extra weight, but I am missing my legs not feeling so tired all the time.

Movement: He has been quite active this week, especially when I am driving.

Food cravings: All the fruit.

Gender: Boy #2!

Looking forward to: Getting started on setting up the baby’s half of the room with his big brother.

Healthy Pregnancy 2 – 35 Weeks

healthy pregnancy 2 May 18, 2017

How far along? 35 Weeks

Baby Size: A pineapple

Weight gain: No scale this week or next week due to travel, but at least 32.5.

Maternity clothes? It’s finally been warm enough to wear dresses, so that’s pretty much been my staple.

Belly Button in or out? Out

Best moment this week: Normally I workout in the morning, which lulls baby to sleep for a few hours. Yesterday, I didn’t workout until the evening and I could feel him kicking ALL DAY waiting for me to rock him to sleep.

Miss Anything? Breathing. This baby is huge (or so it seems!) and everything is so squished. I am looking forward to breathing air again. A whole lung full!

Movement: He’s so squirmy!

Food cravings: La Croix.

Gender: Boy #2!

Looking forward to: Breathing. Also, organizing everything for the baby in our new home.

Traveling So Late In Pregnancy

We are finally moving, and we are road tripping out to our new home. This is a two day (/10 day...

Healthy Pregnancy 2 - 34 Weeks

healthy pregnancy 2 May 11, 2017

How far along? 34 Weeks

Baby Size: A butternut squash

Weight gain: 32.5lbs

Maternity clothes? I’m busting out of all my maternity clothes. Baggy PJs, workout clothes, and dresses for the win!

Belly Button in or out? Out

Best moment this week: Big brother saying “Hooray!” when we tell him he’s going to be a big brother. Even though he doesn’t really understand it, and he is repeating it from a book we read to him, it is super cute.

Miss Anything? Tolerating water. I remember this with our first born as well – I just can’t stand the taste of water. I have an electrolyte water everyday, and enjoy some La Croix, but in order to be sufficiently hydrated I need to be drinking regular water as well, and it’s a struggle right now.

Movement: So much movement, especially at night and after lunch. He has a lot of jumping around to do and I can feel him all over my belly. It’s not as centralized as my...

Healthy Pregnancy 2 - 33 Weeks

healthy pregnancy 2 May 04, 2017

How far along? 33 Weeks

Baby Size: A pineapple!

Weight gain: 28lbs

Maternity clothes? I think my maternity clothes are getting too small. All of my shirts are too short on me now. Looking forward to warmer weather so I just wear my dresses.

Belly Button in or out? Out

Best moment this week: Pat getting to feel a ton of movement recently.

Miss Anything? Not feeling like a whale. Getting in and out of bed to pee 600x per night proves to be quite a task. As does getting up and down from the ground or off the couch. This big belly definitely limits my mobility!

Movement: He is super active now and gives me some good wallops while I’m driving.

Food cravings: Oranges and mangos. All day everyday.

Gender: Boy #2!

Looking forward to: Getting all settled in with our new doctor and seeing where baby will be born.
