Pregnancy #2, Weeks 15-24

Well, and just like that it’s been a month since I’ve blogged?! Holy moly guys! Life can get cray. I’m not sure how some of you blog DAILY! Anyway, here’s how the pregnancy has been going….

How far along are you? I’ll be 24 weeks this week, don’t know how that’s possible but it’s true!

Here’s what the baby has been up to according to The Bump:

  • He is the size of a cantaloupe (feels about right).
  • He responds to my voice and touch (favorite part of being pregnant).

Total weight gain/loss: It’s weird to think that I’m 24 weeks and have only gained 5 pounds, although, I’m SO not going to complain about that!!!

Sleep: Sleep hasn’t been too bad, it’s as good as pregnancy sleep can be I guess. I have crazy dreams, have to pee a ton, and my hips hurt but it’s all for a good reason 🙂

Best moment lately: Our 20 week ultrasound was the best day ever! We had my mom and Brent’s mom in the room with us and it was a really special time. Finding out this little nugget is a boy just like I’ve felt from the beginning was such an amazing experience. I’m so excited for this little man!

Miss Anything: Honestly, I miss intense workouts, not getting winded walking up stairs, and my wine!

Maternity Clothes: Oh yeah! I truly have a love for maternity pants, they make me happy.

Movement: He is a WILD man! I’m a little freaked out to think about how intense his movements will be get the further along I get, but man do I love feeling him move. He already has awake times that I can predict which is really cool.

Food Cravings: I wouldn’t say that I have any cravings really, although I could always go for sushi or Chipotle!

Anything making you sick: I’ve had a cold or two and when I’m not feeling well with the cold my morning sickness comes back, it’s lovely. But thank you Jesus I’m not sick everyday anymore.

Gender: BOY! So happy! Baby brother is going to be the perfect addition to our family.

Symptoms: Really just feeling bigger and get a little more tired than usual.

Looking forward to: I’m looking forward to the Holiday’s! We have family coming to town for Thanksgiving and this time of year is in general my favorite. Getting to share Thanksgiving and Christmas with Charlotte is so fun and thinking of getting to do this with brother too makes me giddy. Oh, and my glucose test, ha! JUST KIDDING!

How is big sister: Charlotte is already such a wonderful big sister, she prays for baby brother, and asks/talks about him often. We are getting ready to upgrade Charlotte’s bedroom furniture. She’s going to get a true big girl bedroom set so we can convert Charlotte’s bed back into a crib and move her dresser into brothers room.

This pregnancy is such a joy to me and our family. Brent and I are so excited to add a boy to our family dynamic, although, we are kinda nervous too! I realized that I don’t really know how to be a boy mom! Everything will be so different than it was with Charlotte which is cool but also a little scary. Thanks for reading this update! I’ll probably post one or two more before this little boy gets here!!

Love to you all!
