Baby Stuff // 13

Pregnant woman with hand on stomach

I can’t believe I’m about to say this but we are officially halfway through this pregnancy, dudes! Time is fuh-lying, despite how much this little nugget is giving me a run for my money. And speaking of which, who’s up for a little overshare of a pregnancy update? Remember when I used to do Baby Stuff updates with Henry? We left off with him at #12 so I just decided to pick it up at #13, even though this is baby number two. I’m in a chatty mood today so let’s go.

WEEK 20.

EATING allllll of the carbs. And the fruit. But definitely not meat. Uggggh.

DRINKING La Croix like my life depends upon it. And obviously plain water too. But seriously why didn’t I think of La Croix with my last pregnancy?! It’s saving me from mind-numbing boredom when it comes to my beverage selection. Although I would be lying if I didn’t tell you that I’ve craved a beer every. single. day. of this pregnancy. Corona Light, please.

READING absolutely nothing about babies! Suck it, baby books! This ain’t my first rodeo.

WANTING just for one day to feel perfectly well. This adorable child has been giving me persistent nausea since day one. Like, all day. With Henry it went away at about 14 weeks and here we are at week 20, still woozy. It’s admittedly waaaaaay better (I was on anti-nausea meds for a while and have been able to stop them completely), but there are still times of day when I just need to lay down for a sec.

SLEEPING is starting to get challenging. I forgot this about last time but for some reason when I go to bed my nose plugs. So there’s a lot of mouth breathing going on. Super sexy, right?

WEARING dresses and only dresses and more dresses please. Maternity pants are a JOKE.

FEELING like I have NO EARTHLY IDEA how we’re going to manage two kids and two jobs. Ryan keeps saying, “I know it’ll work.” And every time he says that about something he’s right. But he’s a little more laid back than I am. I like to have a plan and there is no way to know what to even plan for right now!

LOVING the kicks. Ah, the kicks make it all worth it. This little nugget is like Henry; he liked to kick me around in the morning before I got out of bed. I had forgotten until the other day I was waking up and feeling these little flicks in my tummy. It was like the kiddo was saying good morning.

  1. Aw, so sweet to hear how things are going with baby #2! My baby #2 is turning FOUR today… I have no earthly idea how that happened and it makes me want to kiss him to death and cry all at the same time. Hope you start having less nausea soon, that’s. the. worst.

    1. thanks doll! I can’t believe your baby is FOUR! sending the happiest birthday wishes to your little one! ????

  2. Can you give us some good dress ideas? I’m currently 15 wks, and I hate shopping… But would love to get some dresses for summer. Thanks!

    1. Hey Erin! I’m usually a fan of shopping, but definitely not for maternity clothes. I do most of my maternity shopping online, and I think pretty much all of my maternity dresses right now are from Pink Blush! They have lots of pretty styles and you can usually find some great prices. Hope you find something you love! http://www.pinkblushmaternity.com/

  3. I’m six months along and my nose got crazy stuffy at night too until I got a humidifier! It works wonders. Now all I have to worry about is finding a comfortable position with this big belly!

    1. Thanks for the tip—I’ll definitely be purchasing a humidifier now. ? and good luck finding the perfect sleeping position! xo

      1. Before you turn around your youngest will be 18. My “baby” just did and is off to college soon.
