Gender: To be determined. Our 20 week ultrasound is scheduled for October 23rd, and I cannot wait to find out if Taylor's prediction is true! (She's certain it's a baby see-ter.)
Maternity Clothes: Not gonna lie, I've been wearing my maternity shorts/capris for a couple of weeks now. They're so much more comfy than attempting to wear my regular shorts using the hair tie trick. Plus, I might as well get some use out of them now since the majority of this pregnancy will be during the winter months.
Sleep: Even though I'm exhausted by the end of the day, I cannot seem to get comfortable at night. My body pillow isn't cutting it this time around and getting up to pee 4 times a night doesn't help either. Everything seems to be months ahead of schedule this time around, but I hear that's normal so I'm just trying to roll with it.
Best Moment This Week: Taylor loving all over my belly! The daily hugs (and raspberries) are so sweet. I can't wait to see this girl as a big sister.
Miss Anything: The weather has been stellar lately and I wish I had the energy to take Tay on walks or to the park in the evenings, but it's everything I can do just to cook dinner and bathe the tot before I collapse on the couch.
Movement: No baby movement, but I am experiencing all kinds of cramping. My doc assures me it's normal and is just a side effect of pregnancy no. 2.
Cravings: Anything breakfast-related - a bagel smothered in cream cheese with a large glass of OJ, waffles with fresh fruit and a giant dollop of whipped cream, sausage/egg/cheese breakfast sandwiches. Oh, and french fries. Always.
Sickness: Bleh...yes. Ready for this constant nausea sensation to GO. AWAY. Hoping I'm close to the finish line with this one....
Looking Forward To: The second trimester!! I remember waking up on the first day of Week 13 feeling like a totally different person when I was pregnant with Taylor. Really hoping that's the case again! Also looking forward to cooler temps and all things FALL! You'd better believe I already have fall scents wafting around our entire house. It smells like a yummy pumpkin paradise and makes me crave a Caramel Apple Spice like nobody's business!
And because it's too adorable not to share, a little love from big sis...
