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]

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

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!!

4 Weeks | Our Little Poppy Seed | Baby T #2

I have a lot of blogging to catch up on here. Life has just been...well, life...crazy! Since I've last posted we've gone on a Canada/New England cruise, spent New Years Eve in San Francisco (our last trip as a family of 3), Eli's first trip to DisneyLand, celebrated our anniversary in Vegas, took a girls trip for my 30th & went on a California Coast Disney cruise! Oh, and numerous house projects in between - as well as jumping into my little EVER side business! All of this while raising our little firecracker toddler & going through infertility treatments. To say it's been busy, emotional, crazy would be an understatement. I'll hopefully be able to blog about all of these experiences so I can look back on them later (but first I need to get the pictures off of my camera haha) but I figured documenting baby T #2 was a good place to start!

The day we found out we were pregnant! {No bump picture this week}

Best moment of this week: Finding out we were pregnant on our Disney cruise the morning of our stop in San Fran...how’s that for some Disney magic (on the Disney Wonder)?! Ha
