(baby #2) 30 weeks

Thursday, September 25, 2014

People have been commenting on how much baby (and my belly) have been growing in the last few days.  10 more weeks- that seems so soon!  It's time to order the crib and pick out paint colors, and dig out and clean off the baby stuff that's thrown everywhere!  

This week Carter picked out an elephant lovey that he will bring to the baby in the hospital and I used restraint to not order a bunch of other things from Restoration Hardware Baby.

I'm researching all kinds of trains and trying to figure out some big brother gifts for Carter too.

We've made it half way through Christian's trip to India, mostly thanks to my mom who's made me dinner every night and picked up Carter from daycare most days.  

No big pregnancy symptoms-just some heartburn and exhaustion.  For the last few weeks I can't get enough dessert- ice cream, cookies, peanut butter cups...whatever!

And lots of thoughts on baby names- we're having a tough time deciding and agreeing on the perfect name.  Who knew how easy it was the first time!

(baby #2) 28ish weeks

pic taken last week (9/10)
Ever since closing on our house and starting school taking bump pics and keeping track of my pregnancy has been non-existent!  These last few weeks have been just about survival (as you can see from this pic taken at 6am before school).

Here's the latest bumpdate:

Last week was stressful between a few meetings, some challenging students and back to school night  and that just about took everything out of me.  The next few days I felt like I'd run a marathon- my legs were sore and my body ached.  It was a tough few days.

This week (29 weeks)  I felt a little better and the soreness went away but i'm still super exhausted.  I can definitely tell when I've done too much (like everyday for the last month).  I'm not good at sitting around and not getting things done although I'm really trying to do less.  I go to bed around 9:30ish and sleeping ok (up once to use the bathroom and sometimes have a hard time getting back to sleep).

This week I pulled out a bunch of maternity clothes from my last pregnancy and thankfully the weather is turning cooler so I have more options!

Baby boy moves like crazy and at my last dr appt she said his head is down and all was well!
