12 weeks {baby g #2}

First, I want to say how excited we are to be expecting baby #2!  We have prayed so much for this little one, and are just over the moon excited! :)

There's a little discrepancy on my due date this time around.  According to my calculations, my due date is July 8, but both of the ultra sounds I have had show the Baby G #2 is measuring about a week behind.  The doctor moved my due date to July 15, so I'll just go with it.  This baby will come when he or she is ready, right?! :)

I'm going to try my *best* to journal about my pregnancy every 2 weeks again.  I love going through the updates from my pregnancy with Kason, so I know I want to do it again with this baby. I'm sure they won't be on time, due to being a little busier this time around.  

Anyways...I was 12 weeks on Monday (see, already a week behind.:))! 

Pregnancy Updates:

Baby G's size: Baby G #2 is about the size of a plum. 

My size: I haven't weighed myself recently.  At my first appt. at 8 weeks I weighed 114, and at my next appt. I weighed 112, so I lost a couple of pounds.  No worries, I did the same thing with all packs on in the end!  In terms of my's huge.  I think my 12 week belly compares with my 17 week belly with Kason.  It's crrrrazy how much more quickly you start to show the second time around!

Movement: Believe it or not, I have felt a few little flutters.  SO COOL!

Most excited thing: This pregnancy has been SO much different thus far.  Finding out that we were pregnant with Kason was exciting, but SO unexpected.  We were in shock for a couple of weeks. :)  With this babe, we were trying, so I was ecstatic when I saw that plus sign on the pregnancy test.  Probably the most exciting thing thus far is already feeling flutters.  I thought I was crazy, and that it was too early, but the more I read the more I realized that you feel your second baby much earlier.  It's such a neat feeling.  I can't wait to feel those little kicks in a few months!

Most annoying thing:  Probably just the tiredness.  I wouldn't even say annoying, but I am 10 times more tired than I was with Kason.   I know it's because I'm chasing a toddler around, but man, it's exhausting.  I feel bad because I know I can't do as much with Kason because I get so worn out, but it will pass!  I can't imagine how it would be if I was still working full time.  Yikes!  On another skin is broken out like a girl going through puberty.  Also highly annoying.

Cravings: Weird, because I rarely have healthy cravings, but I'm craving salad like nobody's business.

Sickness:  NAUSEA!  UGH!  With Kason, I would get sick a few times during the night and be done with it.  With this baby I am nauseous ALL day and rarely get sick.  I would much rather just throw up and get it over with.  I know it won't last, and I'm thankful for it even though it's annoying.  I know that means that the pregnancy is progressing just like it should.  

Next appointment: I go back to the doctor on the 17th of this month.  The same day I sign Kason up for pre-school..big day!  I'll be 14 weeks at that appointment, so the following appointment will be another ultrasound and the big gender reveal! :)

And a little comparison. . . 


  1. AHHH! So excited for you!!! PS - I have some SERIOUS baby fever :)
