THAT BEING SAID, I never chronicled my pregnancy with Abigail in depth and boy, do I wish that I had! This is a super exciting time for us and I would be absolutely remiss to not document every single milestone of this little nugget’s life so far.
Abigail was my fabulous photographer for my 9 week photoshoot 😉 I’m rocking my PSI Acupressure Bands that I scored at Target for $3! Woop!
Weight Gain |
Eh, this is a smidge tricky because when I first weighed myself we had been doing the no carb diet bit for a few weeks. I also think there is a 2-3 lb discrepancy between my at home scale and the Dr. scale….so that being said, I think I’m up a couple lbs thanks to the reincorporation of breads, zero working out, and multiple things swelling/bloating.
Starting weight for this pregnancy: 130 lbs
The bloat. Oof, it’s hangin out there.
So weird but it totally works. It helps me think up what might sound good without listing the actual food.
Size of baby |
Grape. Green Olive.
.9 inches .07 oz
I’m still wearing all of my regular clothes! I’m super glad that’s still working out for me. I hope I can stretch that out as long as possible(I sold ALL of my maternity clothes over a year ago)
I’d been starting to think boy, just because I haven’t been vomiting like I was with Abigail. But then baby’s heartbeat was identical to Abigail’s, so that got me thinking maybe there is another little girl in there. We’ll have to see 🙂
Let’s see. I cried during a preview for an American Girl movie before one of Abigail’s shows. Yes. A preview. I was all, “Yeah McKenna! You don’t have to do this life alone!” I cried during the national anthem of game one of the World Series. I cried during our ultrasound early this week. I cried over lunch one day because I waited a really, really long time for my general tso’s chicken to be delivered. And then once it was it was some nasty WEIRD general tso, y’all. It had like big chunks of bell pepper and onion? I swear it smelled like salsa. Why would it smell like salsa?? Anyway. That was worth a big ol cry.
Nothing else yet though 🙂
Nothing yet! We probably won’t start on decorating until spring, but I am brainstorming creative ways to organize and relocate everything that is currently inside bedroom #3/future nursery.
Just the other day, I noticed that he moved his coffee pot out to the garage so that I wouldn’t have to smell his coffee. He didn’t ask. He just did it. (To prove that there is FOR SURE a little bebeh in there sucking out my life, I haven’t had Starbucks or a homemade latte in weeks. I even had two free drink rewards that almost expired and I had to give them to Jim to use instead! Crazy!)
His/her little face is looking right at us and you can see those little arm and leg nubbins! Totally mind blowing that a baby the size of an olive looks so much like a person already. Heartbeat was 185, just like big sister. Abigail’s heart rate was in the 180’s too.
The illustrious 2nd Trimester 😉 Where legend has it sickness traditionally stops and energy levels return. We’ll see!
