Well, hello there again!
We have had a busy and fun past few weeks. We had our anatomy ultrasound at 20 weeks which went amazing. I am thrilled to have had a better experience this time around. Our little babe was so relaxed I had to get up and move around to get him to turn over so we could see all of his organs. But he ended up cooperating and yes, we found out we are having a healthy baby BOY! As soon as the tech revealed the gender Joren jumped and shouted “YES!” and I’ll never forget his reaction. We revealed the exciting news to our family the following weekend with a spooky gender reveal party!
This past month has been relatively uneventful symptom wise – which I’ll take! I am feeling the golden second trimester, which I am hoping will last and maybe follow through into the third 😉 I can hope!
I am feeling normal pregnancy symptoms: mild backaches, out of breath, trouble sleeping. But as baby continues to grow I am feeling his movements get stronger!
TOTAL WEIGHT GAIN: 11lbs
THE BELLY: Is clearly growing!
WHAT I’M WEARING: If I am at home you can find me in leggings or comfy sweats. If I am out and about I will wear maternity jeans. I have collected quite a few maternity tops that I love, especially from Old Navy and Pink Blush Maternity.
When we found out we were having a baby boy I put in an order with Swap.com for some baby onesies and sleepers. I just couldn’t help myself…I did the same thing with Juliette! It is my favorite website to buy baby clothes because you can’t beat the prices.
We also chose a forest/camping/adventure theme for his nursery. I have had so much fun brainstorming/pinteresting and I have started to pick things up here and there! I cannot wait to see everything come together.
CURRENT FEELINGS: Happy and in love with our little boy already!
SLEEP: Pregnancy insomnia has really been affecting me lately. I will be wide awake, tossing and turning with my mind going nonstop. I never feel rested, either.
HIGHLIGHT OF THE MONTH: Definitely our 20 week ultrasound where we found out we are having a BOY and revealing it to our families at our spooky gender reveal party!
LOW OF THE MONTH: None, thankfully!
OBSESSING OVER: When I ask Juliette where baby brother is she points/hugs/kisses my belly! It’s the sweetest thing! We bought her a book about becoming a big sister and she seems to love it because she asks us to read it to her often.
MISS ANYTHING?: Cold deli sandwiches!
FOOD CRAVINGS + AVERSIONS: No aversions but my sweet tooth has been out of control!
LOOKING FORWARD TO: Enjoying the holiday season with our family! This is the first one that I will be sporting a bump!
