21 Weeks

How far along: 21 weeks 4 day
Total weight gain/loss: I'm estimating (hoping) around 5 lbs.  I have officially hit the GIVE ME ALL YOUR SWEETS phase and get weighed on Friday at my 22 week appointment, so as long as it's 9 or below, I'll be happy!
Sleep: Not great, but what are you gonna do? I officially wake up everyday at 3:30 am to pee. AT LEAST
Best moment this week: Has nothing to do with baby and everything to do with the fact that I had my iphone in my pocket when I went in Emma's pool with her and officially got a free one to replace it, which took much effort.  THANKS GRANT from APPLE!
Movement: This little boy NEVER STOPS MOVING.  It's a love/hate relationship.  I'm just hoping he's not getting me ready for what is to come when he comes out. 
Food cravings: SWEETS!
Labor Signs: nope.
Belly Button in or out: innie, but it's not too deep these days.
What I miss: Wine to help me relax after a stressful day!
What I am looking forward to: Looking forward to…

Gender Reveal

How far along: 20 weeks 2 days Total weight gain/loss: 3 - 5  lbs, which when I looked back to pregnancy #1, I had gained 12 lbs by this time, so I'd say I'm doing better.  The cake and junk food I ate yesterday probably didn't help, but a little splurge here and there is necessary! Sleep:  Eh...I wake up about 2-4 times a night to pee or because of restlessness.  It's not so bad though.  As long as Emma is sleeping through the night, I'll take it! Best moment this week: Finding out were are having a....................BOY! Yes ladies and gentlemen, a little man will be added to our family.  We are beyond thrilled.  DH may be a tiny bit happier than me, but we are so excited to grow our family . Movement: He's a mover, even more so than Emma I think. I feel him all the time.  Not a great deal on the outside yet, but definitely on the inside all day long. Food cravings: Not really. Labor Signs: nope. Belly Button in or out: innie, but I did notice it isn't as deep …

Best moment this week: Meeting Lindsay's second baby boy. - Pic Below  I also enjoyed mother's day and DH got me an hour and a half pre-natal massage, as well as a lovely card :)  I also got pampered all day!

Surprise Mini Vacay

You know when your DH says "wanna do something crazy?" normally you're like oh goodness.

Friday DH said that exact phrase but my response was actually "YES".  I went into this knowing I could completely veto any idea, but what came out of his mouth was pure genius!!!

"We're gonna go to the beach tomorrow"

ummmmmmmmmmmmmm YES PLEASE!  

So Saturday morning we woke up, over packed way too much and forgot some essentials (like normal), but it was the BEST TIME!

We played on the beach, walked the boardwalk, ate food that was bad for us, HAD ICE CREAM!, and even got scopes :)

Emma liked playing in the sand.  You have to watch out, or she'll eat it, but I was very happy with the response.  Pool time wasn't a complete success, but the 5 screaming splashing kids in the tiny indoor pool didn't help either!

here are some pics of our little family's got me really excited for Beach Week 2014! (82 days away)

yes, that's me…

Appointment Update

Just about 18 weeks....

Today was my appointment at 8:30 am this morning. Met a doctor I don't remember meeting yet, but loved her like I love all the other ones :)   We heard the babies heartbeat and it was about 145 bpm.   It was very strong and very loud. Even the doctor said "they aren't shy". Which made me feel amazing!

Total weight gain/loss: 0 lbs.  I actually lost 2 pounds from my last appt. which I was extremely happy about, but not too surprised since food isn't as fun to eat as it was the first time around.  Doctor said she wasn't worried since I hadn't lost all baby weight from #1.  So technically I am 10 lbs. up from my pre Emma weight.  I also think I can stop the Maternity Clothes option, becuase it's just a YES from here on out. Sleep: Sleep as been good.   I haven't been waking up to anything or anyone, which I can only imagine won't last forever. Thank you Emma for finally feeling better!!!! Best moment this week: Knowing Emma is …
