Have you told family and friends: Everyone knows!
Miss Anything? Nah not anymore

Gender prediction: Girl!
Labor Signs: No
Belly Button in or out? In

Looking forward to: July 2nd- HURRY UP!

 Total weight gain/loss: Up a total of 6 pounds.
Maternity clothes? Yep!
Stretch marks? Nope. Well, not any new ones. The ones from Olivia are creeping back around.
Sleep: Just fine. Last night Olivia slept 12.5 hours. I'm sure that'll never happen again. When I woke up and saw the clock say 9:20 I flew out of bed because I assumed something horrible happened (naturally), and ran into her room. She was sitting in her crib talking to her bear. When she saw me she threw her arms in the air and said, "Mama!"
Best moment this week: Updating the nursery. More on that later.
Have you told family and friends: Everyone knows.
Miss Anything? Having more than one (or two) cups of coffee.
Movement: Not as active as Olivia at all. This one is very still. Last night I had to bust out my fetal Doppler because I was nervous the babe wasn't moving all day. As soon as I started, s/he started kicking and wiggling. Olivia then took the Doppler and put it on her belly. N'awww!
Food cravings: Apples and sweets. When Halloween is over ALL TREATS ARE OUT THE WINDOW! If I have half a bowl left when the last trick or treater comes then it's that little guy's lucky day, he's getting it all.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope
Have you started to show yet: Yes. Barely.
Gender prediction: At this moment I say boy but I still flip flop between them.
Labor Signs: No
Belly Button in or out? Flattening out. It stayed innie with Livi but I'm thinking I'll get an outie this time.
Wedding Rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy!
Looking forward to: My 28 week appointment (NOT!) I have to do the glucose test next week. I failed the one hour last time and had to take the 3 hour test that I later passed.


  1. I'm trying to scroll up and down to see if your bump looks any different. Clearly that'll tell me whether it's a boy or girl - haha. Your weight gain is so different this time around - that gives me hope. I gained 40 pounds with Olivia and heard people say they show faster and weighed more the second time around. You are giving me hope that whenever we decide on baby #2, I might not be a whale. Might..

    1. With Olivia I gained 50+ pounds! I swore I wouldn't do that again. This round I had bad morning sickness and just now am starting to gain weight past my starting weight. Halloween candy is not helping me though :-/
