Beer Baby Two: 28 Weeks

Beer Baby Two: 28 Weeks

Well, the third trimester is here to stay! I can’t believe it sometimes – this little lady will be joining us in just about 3 months! How far along? 28 Weeks Size of baby: About 14.8 Inches and 2.2 pounds – a large eggplant General Thoughts/Feelings/Mood: I generally feel okay. I’m starting to swell a little bit at the end of the day (but oddly, usually only my left ankle), and I definitely can’t do everything I used to do. Stairs are not my friend and make me winded if I do them too fast. I’m almost to the point…

Beer Baby Two: 25 Weeks

Beer Baby Two: 25 Weeks

I feel like the moment I started doing pregnancy updates on this little one, I knew this was going to happen – totally inconsistent updates. While with Abbie I documented (almost) every week, this little girl is not getting the same treatment. (Sorry, baby girl – I promise I love you just as much, but your big sister keeps me busy.) Anyway, I’m popping in today with a quick update on this babe at 25 weeks! How far along? 25 Weeks Size of baby: About 13.6 inches and 1.5 pounds – a large cucumber! General Thoughts/Feelings/Mood: Everyone keeps asking me…

Beer Baby Two: 20 Weeks!

Beer Baby Two: 20 Weeks!

A little over halfway there! To be honest, I wanted to post this right at 20 weeks, but life got in the way. So 20 weeks, 5 days it is! I also did not get a chance to take the traditional bump photo… so looking down at the bump it is. How far along? 20 Weeks, 5 days Size of baby: About 10 Inches and 10.6 ounces – a banana! General Thoughts/Feelings/Mood: I’m partially in disbelief that I’m halfway through this pregnancy, and partially in disbelief that there is still SO far to go. Most days I feel okay, but…

Beer Baby Two: 18 Weeks!

Beer Baby Two: 18 Weeks!

Hello there, 18 Weeks!   How far along? 18 Weeks! Size of baby: About 5.6 Inches and 6.7 ounces – a sweet potato! General Thoughts/Feelings/Mood: I really feel pretty normal for the most part. I did get my first stranger asking when I’m due the other day, so that was definitely an indicator that I look pregnant. Also, people are constantly asking me how I’m feeling, as if they’re expecting me to say I feel awful or something. I know they mean well…. but it gets annoying. Food Aversions: Nothing and everything. Just nothing sounds good. Food Cravings: Same as above. I will…

Beer Baby Two: 16 Weeks!

Why, hello there, 16 weeks! I’m so happy to see you!   How far along? 16 Weeks! Size of baby: About 4.6 Inches and 3.5 ounces – an avocado! General Thoughts/Feelings/Mood: I really feel fairly normal. I do get out of breath more easily, and I’m hungry more often, but that’s about it. Food Aversions: Fish of any kind sounds pretty awful right now. Food Cravings: Give me all the carbs. Health/Fitness: I feel okay. I’ve mostly been getting all my steps in and am maintaining close to the same weight for the past few weeks. Doc Appointments: I don’t…

It’s a….

It’s a….

Last chance to guess! Thanks to the new blood test, we were able to find out early just who our new little family member is, and Abbie sort of cooperated with some fun photos for me. and we are having… a sweet baby GIRL! I would have been happy no matter what, but I’m so thrilled that Abbie is going to have a sister! I love having sisters (I have three of them) and it’s something I really wanted for her – there’s nothing like a sister. Plus, reusing all of Abbie’s adorable clothes? And matching sister outfits??? Come on.…

Basically almost nothing tastes good, but nothing…

A Little About Baby Two!

A Little About Baby Two!

Thank you for all your well wishes yesterday! I’ve hated keeping this secret and I’m so glad it’s all out in the open now! I thought I’d give a quick update today on my pregnancy and how it’s progressing thus far and try to answer your questions? How far along are you? What’s your due date? I am 12 weeks, 5 days as of today, and my due date is October 27. Abbie was 9 days late, so if this kiddo is anything like her, there’s a good chance I’ll go into November. Was it planned? Everyone hates this question,…
