A quick update on how #2 and I are doing, with a little inspiration from Joanna and Victoria. 😉
*How far along?: 21 weeks today
*Total weight gain: About 6 pounds
*How big is baby?: The size of a banana, approx 10.5 inches and 12.7 oz
*Sleep?: Still waking up a couple times each night, but it’s only a minor inconvenience
*Best moment this week?: My big girl’s pool party with some of her classmates from last year. It was so cute to see them all together again (even if it’s only been 2 weeks), and really showed that I need to suck it up and register her for a SafeStart swim program instead of Parent/Child classes. The other kids are MUCH better swimmers!
*Movement?: Every night, and a few random flutters during the day.
*Food cravings?: Always carbs. First trimester was baked potatoes, and now it’s bagels. I can’t remember the last time I ate this many bagels…
*Stretchmarks?: Nothing new 😉
*Labor signs?: Negatory
*Belly button in or out?: Still in!
*What I miss: The ability to go out AND get things done at home. It seems like I have to choose one over the other thanks to fatigue. 🙁
*Complaints: Nothing big, I’m just a lil whiny about the general downside of pregnancy. Back pain, fatigue, not being able to pick up and carry my daughter as often as she’d like.
*What I’m looking forward to: Our Disney weekend! We’ll be staying at Animal Kingdom Lodge. SO excited to have a Savanna view room so the animals can come visit us. 😀
*Nursery Progress: None. I just figured out a new layout for their room (the girls have to share), and now I need to get organizing and shopping for either a crib for #2 or a big girl bed for #1.
*What items do you still need to buy for baby?: Everything. I can re-use a lot from my older daughter, but there are a few things that either can’t be re-used, can’t be shared, or are just better options than what I did the first time around. That will get sorted out in the coming weeks as well.
