{Bump Dates #2} 12 weeks

**I'm a bit behind on the pregnancy updates this time around.  I have been keeping track of everything, just haven't gotten around to posting it. I'm hoping to keep up with everything for this baby, just as I did with AG**

Week 12

Size: Passion Fruit 

Gender: Hubs and I think it's another girl. 

Movement: Nothing yet. 

Sleep: Crazy dreams.  Some nights are more comfortable than others, thankful for my preggo pillow.  

Cravings: Salad, ice cold drinks (lemonade)

Aversions: S

Symptoms: Exhausted all the time and sick all morning.  I've been hugging the toilet every morning since 6 weeks.  Hopefully there is an end in sight! Also back pain.  I have a feeling it's due to a recent workout, nonetheless it's still a pain!

What I Miss: Wine.  Especially after toddler tantrum filled days!

What I'm Looking Forward To: Our ultrasound next week along with NT testing. 

Best Moment This Week: Seeing AG give kisses to my belly and watching her love on her own baby dolls.  

Thoughts: It's still surreal being pregnant.  Time is going by much faster this time. The beginning was very rough.  From week 6 up until this point I've been very sick.  Most days have been spent on the couch, all day long.  It's been rough taking care of AG, I feel extremely guilty that I can't be the mom I'm used to being to her. Thankfully, around the middle of the 11th week it started becoming better in the afternoon.  Mornings are still rough. I don't do anything for the first 2 hours I'm up. I'm hoping this won't be the case my entire pregnancy.

Oh I hope you start feeling better soon! I didn't feel good most of my first pregnancy (the "pains" kept changing) and that's my biggest fear the next time around. It's hard to take care of a toddler while feeling horrible on a regular basis. Try not to feel too guilty and take all the help you can.

I felt bad for my daughter during my first tri. There were many TV days. You just have to do what you can to survive!

Caroline said...

If it's another girl, my boys and your girls can just get married.

I'm so happy for you Leah! And I'm so glad you're starting to feel more like yourself. I was super sick with Owen and it was rough. i was just so unhapppy because I always always always felt gross. I'm sure AG is going to be a great big sis!!

Meredith said...

haha, I like Caroline's comment. How cute would that be. You look great!

Candace said...

Yay a preggo pic finally! Would love for you to have another girl! xoxo

Ashleigh said...

I did not know you were expecting again! Congrats mamma... I am excited for you all :)

Mateya said...

So sorry to hear you've been feeling so crappy! Hopefully it lets up soon!

AG is going to be such a little mama to her baby brother/ fun!

I always missed wine too. Toddler days are tough and are tougher without wine!

Charlotte said...

I hear you on keeping up with the toddler, but the great thing is she already has a wonderful foundation of learning and love built, and she won't remember this very short time that mommy needs to rest! At least, that's what I tell myself when I'm just too tired for another tea party!
