14 Week Bumpdate: Baby No. 2


14 Weeks Pregnant Chalkboard Picture

How far along:  14 Weeks
Total weight gain: Scale says 0. My pants lead me to believe that’s a lie.
Stretch marks: Nope. I did have a scare one afternoon, so now I’m slathering on my Belly Balm every morning!
Movement: Yes! I have been feeling little flutters for the past two weeks. Baby was SUPER active in our ultrasound last week, so I’m not surprised.
Mood: Overall, very happy and excited. But, also moody at some point each day. Could be the hormones… could be my bossy toddler.
Food cravings: Cereal. Pizza. Pita Pit. Fountain Cherry Pepsi. You know. The basics. 
Gender: So far, this pregnancy has been almost identical to Blaire’s. And baby has had a heart rate over 160 each time, so according to the wive’s tails, that means girl. But our doctor doesn’t do gender scans until 20 weeks! :(
Sleep: It is a little better than it was during weeks 7 through 11. I was so restless I had to get out my maternity pillow. But, Blaire has since stolen it away to her bed.  Getting out of bed to pee multiple times each night is already pretty annoying… I’d also bribe my toddler with anything if she’d let me sleep in over the weekend. 
Highlight of the Week: Hitting the clearance maternity clothing jackpot at Old Navy! 
Miss Anything: Drinking as much coffee as I want to… #caffeine
Symptoms: Nausea. Every day. Hip and back pain. 
Looking forward to: Less “morning” sickness and finding out baby’s gender!

    Pregnancy is so excited! You look wonderful. And finding maternity clothes on clearance must have been AWESOME! Maternity clothes can be rather expensive!

    Yay congratulations! I’m not sure about that wives tale as I was totally convinced I was having a boy and then to find out we are having our third girl! Congratulations mama and I hope the morning sickness subsides soon, it’s the worse!

    xo, Nicole

    You look super cute!! Love your pregnancy update. I completely understand the headaches. I had the same thing from about week 9 to week 16. I hear ya on missing coffee. I’m excited to have full caffeinated coffee sometime soon. :)

    Too cute! I need to start a bump series, almost 20 weeks and no documentation yet :)

  • ice cream outside with two of my favorite people. when it’s only 70° outside you can actually eat your ice cream without it melting all over us... and by us I mean them. 👆🏻👆🏻 #blaireandben

  • Well we don’t have a Nordstrom near us, but we do have an Aldi. Most of their summer items are on clearance and we scored this sweet pool for $7. Winner, winner. 🦄☀️ #blaireandben

  • This summer hasn’t really felt like summer yet. 🤨 So when we have an 85° day we make the most out of it with a trip to the pool! How’d you spend your Sunday Funday? #blaireandben
  • another day, another doctors appointment for someone in our crew. today it’s Ben. he was up overnight saying his ear hurt — a double ear infection for him. luckily the kid loves taking medicine and hasn’t let his ears get him down! as long as he’s up moving around they’re fine, but the second he lays down... 😭😭😭. hoping our poor buddy is feeling better tomorrow. do you feel like you need a frequent flier card for your pediatrician? just me? okay. #blaireandben #itsfinewerefine

  • When your brother is getting big but you still want to hold him... you gotta pinch his butt because he’s so wiggly. 😂😬😍 #blaireandben •

  • It is definitely bittersweet to leave the house where we brought both of these babies home. But we are excited for our next chapter as a family of five! #rainbowbaby #blaireandben

  • Last night was our first night in the new house. 👏🏻 We still have lots of stuff to bring from the old house and then lots of cleaning over there before the final walk through and closing next Monday. Then we can focus on getting this house unpacked and organized. But first, I would like a nap. 😴 #blaireandben #happilytristahome
  • Happy Halloween! 🎃 👻 #blaireandben

  • This sums up our Sunday. After driving around like crazy people to go to three parties yesterday, today was lazy and included movies, popcorn, long naps, quick trick or treat at the mall and then spaghetti pizza. And I might be eating my kids candy on the couch right now. 😍 How was your weekend? #blaireandben
  • Childhood... drinking a frosty in your teepee. what. a. life. We had a slow weekend. Literally vegged out at home 95% of the time and it was marvelous.  #blaireandben
