16 Weeks | Our Little Avocado | Baby T #2

16 weeks
How far along: 16 weeks
How big is baby? Avocado
Symptoms: This past week was better nausea wise with the Vitamin B6 & unisom daily. Granted I had some early nights & a unisom hangover one morning but better than feeling terrible! Pelvic pain from even light jogging or if I walk too much - luckily rest heals it pretty quickly.
Maternity clothes: Yes
Sleep: Sleep is still good - and not waking up to pee most nights (probably coincides with the Unisom nights)
Miss anything: Being able to get in the orange zone at OTF
Movement: Pretty darn sure I’m feeling movement when I’m relaxing/laying down. Hunter curled up with me one day and had his head below my belly & baby was moving a lot (or at least I think)
Anything making you queasy or sick: Meh, still working out - but I’m powering through!
Have you started to show yet: Yep
Labor signs: None
Belly button in or out: In
Wedding rings on or off: On
Mood? Pretty happy for the most part
Feeling boy or girl? Boy? I don’t know!
Looking forward to: 2 days off this week & getting a massage and facial - yes please!
Best moment of this week: Had fun hosting Rachel’s shower! It was an exhausting day but so fun!! Also, our 16 week appointment. No ultrasound but Dr. C found the heartbeat & said that it must be naptime because she didn’t hear any kicks so we asked what that sounded like & she said whooshing or almost a double heartbeat or weird rhythm. When we find the heartbeat at home Eli is almost always around and the baby is apparently going nuts because we always hear those weird noises but didn’t know what they were. Not sure if the baby is excited or scared of Eli haha. Heartbeat was 148 BPM.

15 Weeks | Our Little Orange | Baby T #2

15 weeks
How far along: 15 weeks
How big is baby? Orange
Symptoms: Sooo this has been the worst week yet for symptoms. Nausea is back - including actual vomiting - this is not supposed to happen in the 2nd tri! Will someone tell my body?? Now trying Unisom + Vitamin B6 to see if I can kick this. Headaches are back. Pelvis pain comes if I push myself too hard on the treadmill.
Maternity clothes: Yuup
Sleep: Sleep is pretty good this week - especially the nights I took Unisom!
Miss anything: Not randomly gagging & throwing up :)
Movement: I think I’ve felt movement on & off. We rented a doppler & Justin is able to find the baby’s heartbeat super fast. Although the baby seems to “run” away when it hears Eli - HA!
Food cravings: Still loving sour pickles & takis. Also got back on the HEB Limon chip train
Anything making you queasy or sick: Working out...I felt so nauseous at everyone of my workouts this week & also about an hour after eating dinner. I actually got sick 3 times this week :(
Have you started to show yet: Yep
Labor signs: None
Belly button in or out: In
Wedding rings on or off: On
Mood? A little bit of a roller coaster
Feeling boy or girl? Girl...refer to being queasy or sick above
Looking forward to: Hosting Rachel’s baby shower for baby Aiden!
Best moment of this week: Had so many fun family dates this weekend! Dinner @ BJs followed by a little shopping & Tiff’s Treats. Saturday Costco run (maybe not as fun) + a trip to the Domain for gelato & Sprinkles cupcakes! A relaxing Sunday purging some stuff to make room for this baby!

14 Weeks | Our Little Peach | Baby T #2

14 weeks
How far along: 14 weeks
How big is baby? Peach
Symptoms: For the most part I felt better this past week. Monday night was the worst I’ve felt my whole pregnancy so far. Made it 13w6d before throwing up in the middle of OrangeTheory at exactly 14w...Don’t worry - I finished my workout and burned the most calories there since getting pregnant haha. Headaches are back - yipee! NOT
Maternity clothes: Yes - especially bottoms. Got a lot of new shorts this week.
Sleep: Sleep is okay for the most part. Getting up multiple times per night to pee (I inevitably end up drinking a bunch of water right before bed...fail)
Miss anything: Just feeling normal - although I’d probably have to go back to 2013 for my body to truly feel “normal”
Movement: I think I’ve felt some movement this week but not 100% positive
Food cravings: Takis craving is back but even more so craving pickles - the more sour the better!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Working out...I felt so nauseous at everyone of my workouts this week
Have you started to show yet: Yep
Labor signs: None
Belly button in or out: In
Wedding rings on or off: On
Mood? Pretty emotional...feelings hurt pretty easily
Feeling boy or girl? Boy because of my cravings haha
Looking forward to: A low key week & weekend compared to this last week...I just need a break. The countdown to Disney is on!
Best moment of this week: Spending time with LeeAnn this weekend! It’s been way too long since we’ve spent more than like 2 hours together! Now I need to make a trip to Houston before this baby comes so I can finally see her new place!

13 Weeks | Our Little Lemon | Baby T #2

13 weeks
How far along: 13 weeks
How big is baby? Lemon
Symptoms: I’ll have a few good days & think yay...1st tri ailments are over! & then BAM another day of feeling crappy. Had some morning cramping this week which made working out a no-go. Fell asleep with Eli a few nights so that exhaustion is still come & go. About 30 mins-an hour after eating I end up feeling BLAH - tums are becoming my best friend (even though it’s not really heartburn, more like unsettled stomach)
Maternity clothes: Yes - I got a TON of used maternity clothes (including some long sleeved stuff) this week - excited to have some more variety
Sleep: Some days I end up exhausted & some days I’m fine - it’s a gamble!
Miss anything: Having more energy to workout...still this - or not feeling nauseous/crampy in the am causing me to skip.
Movement: Not yet
Food cravings: I went light on the takis this week - progress! New craving this week: sour candy - ugh
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nothing in particular
Have you started to show yet: Yep
Labor signs: None
Belly button in or out: In
Wedding rings on or off: On
Mood? Up & down this week
Feeling boy or girl? Girl...but then I think about last time & think it’s probably just a boy fooling us again! haha
Looking forward to: LeeAnn’s visit this weekend...I haven’t seen her in forever, or for more than a few hours at a time so this is a special treat!!
Best moment of this week: Had a date night with friends on Friday night - always nice to get away for a few hours AND had a family date on Sunday...best of both worlds!

12 Weeks | Our Little Plum | Baby T #2

12 weeks

How far along: 12 weeks
How big is baby? Plum
Symptoms: Another rough week...nausea and exhaustion continue. Not specifically from pregnancy but I was having costochondritis chest pain almost all week - making it hard to move & sleep. Luckily by the end of the week it had resolved. Also, still taking it easy after hurting my pelvis running at OTF last week (need to take it slower)
Maternity clothes: Yes - although still wearing regular tops (and maternity tops)
Sleep: Pretty tired again this week. Early bedtimes & weekend naps are a must! [same]
Miss anything: Having more energy to workout
Movement: Not yet
Food cravings: Still takis - I really hope this morphs into something healthy soon! haha
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nothing in particular
Have you started to show yet: Yep
Labor signs: None
Belly button in or out: In
Wedding rings on or off: On
Mood? Happy
Feeling boy or girl? Girl
Looking forward to: A relaxing weekend! Date night with friends on Friday and then NO PLANS! Woohoo! Maybe work on cleaning out the nursery closet.
Best moment of this week: When trying to find the baby’s heartbeat on the doppler, Eli either wants to do it on me (where he basically just puts the jelly into my belly button with the wand...ew!) or do it on himself. It’s so dang cute to watch him! Wasn’t able to find the heartbeat yet but excited when E can finally hear it! Also...we had an ultrasound at 12w1d & the baby was measuring 12w4d. The heartbeat was 165 BPM. Baby was moving SO DANG MUCH! I think we might have another busy body aka Eli on our hands...uh oh! Love seeing that little peanut on the screen!!
