8 weeks with baby #2

How far along: 8 weeks

How big is baby: a Kidney Bean. baby center's info on baby growth at 8 weeks

Weight gain/loss: Holding steady at -4 lbs gained.

Stretch marks: None yet this time. But, I'm sure they'll come.

Sleep: Vivid dreams started already leaving me feeling unrested when I wake. Frequent peeing (5-7 times no joke) doesn't help. 

Diet/Cravings/Aversions: Averse to just about everything.

Movement: None yet. I felt Cole earlier than the average woman does at 12 weeks. I was a lot thinner then tho but I've also had a kid already and know what to look for so it could go either way. 

What I'm worrying about: Not much. I already have a hard bulge under my c-section scar so I'm feeling more confident that this baby is going to stick. 

What I'm loving: Feeling that hard bulge.

Symptoms: Nausea. Extreme fatigue. Still off of my prenatal vitamins for the time being. 

What I'm looking forward to: telling everyone and the second trimester

Best moment of the week: pretty bleak around here lately. :( 


About Me

My photo
I'm a new wife and an even newer mom. I have a secret dream to be super-mom. I love to craft, cook, dance and fill my life with as many adventures as possible. I'm slightly crunchy granola but enjoy a good steak. I'm right brained and type B (with some type A tendencies). I thrive best when I get to use my creative juices. I dabble in photography and party planning. I play piano and have a dream to learn the cello. I want to make the most of this one, short life I find myself living.

About This Blog

This blog was originally intended to be a personal journal of my pregnancy journey and all that that entails--shared with only a few close family members. It was a way for me to keep them posted on all things baby and occasionally post a picture of my growing torso so they could see the progress. After several posts, I started to get hooked on other blogs and became motivated to attempt to do more with mine. We'll see how it goes....
