10 Weeks

I'm scared to even say it, but I think I'm starting to feel a little bit better. On Saturday I felt like I actually had energy and went to Costco. Little miss Audrina has been testing us big time the last two weeks, it can be exhausting. She is refusing to nap, you think she would be tired when 8PM rolls around but nope, she fights us then too. 

I was excited to go out for breakfast with Derek and Audrina yesterday but after waiting 20 minutes for a table, Audrina threw a huge fit when it was finally our turn and we had to leave. I was little mortified at her tantrum in the middle of a packed restaurant but I quickly picked her up, apologized, and ran out. Ugh, I really wanted breakfast too. Don't mess with a pregnant lady who wants eggs benedict haha ;-) But really, I need to be more patient with her and understand that she's just learning her boundaries and this is all normal.  

How far along: 10 weeks!!

Size of baby: Kumquat 

Total weight gain: Still haven't stepped on the scale, I'm not sure if I want to.

Movement: No movement yet.

Sleep: Pretty good. We are battling bedtime issues with Audrina so I'm not getting any time for myself in the evenings to relax. I keep reminding myself this is a phase.

What I miss: Cooking dinner every night. 

Cravings: Cutie oranges, some sweets like chocolate chip cookies and cake, soft pretzels and anything slushy. 

Labor Signs: N/A

Maternity clothes: I got the BEST maternity work slacks from Gap last week. They are still pretty darn big but they are long which is impossible to find for a tall girl like me.

Best moments this week: By far yesterday was the best moment of the week. Even though Audrina didn't nap, I got a 3 hour nap (thanks hubby), went to the park, did the laundry, got some house stuff done and not to mention it was 65 degrees outside and beautiful!

8 weeks

On December 17th, 2014 we found out that we are expecting again! If this sounds familiar it’s because I found out around the exact same time that I was pregnant with Audrina. I had no real symptoms and Derek and I had only been trying for a few months so that came as a total shock. We are really excited that Audrina will soon have a little brother or sister. I know she will be an amazing sister.

How far along: 8 weeks!!

Size of baby: The size of a kidney bean – is constantly moving and shifting, though I still can’t feel it.

Total weight gain: I haven’t stepped on the scale but I would say at least a few.

Movement: No movement yet.

Sleep: Eh, it's okay. I'm waking up 1-2 times each night to use the potty and I’m SO tired in the morning that I have to drag myself out of bed.

What I miss: Feeling good and having lots of energy to play with Audrina. I’ve been really sick this pregnancy, even since 5 weeks. I have constant all day sickness and extreme fatigue.

Cravings: Strawberries and fresh fruit sound appealing. Besides that, nothing sounds good.

Labor Signs: N/A

Maternity clothes: Nothing yet, I’m in the awkward phase where I just look really bloated.

Best moments this week: Watching the Seahawks win against the Carolina Panthers!
