baby #2 | 13 weeks

How Far Along13 weeks, 2 days! Officially in the 2nd trimester!

Size of the BabyBaby W is the size of a peach! 

Symptoms/Sleep: I have started the dreaded waking up in the middle of the night to pee. Some nights it is really hard to fall back to sleep, other nights I fall back to sleep just fine.   

I met with the maternal fetal medicine physician this week and I absolutely adore him. Dr. Kramer said that he does not think the SCB is going to reabsorb, which is a bummer. He said that I will be seeing more bleeding but we don't know when. It is basically a ticking time bomb. I am to call him with any spotting and to go see him immediately with any bleeding. I have another appointment in a few weeks to check on the bleed to make sure it isn't getting any bigger.  On the upside, the SCB isn't impeding the baby's growth at all which is reassuring. In fact, at my appointment we were measuring 12 weeks 6 days as opposed to 12 weeks 4 days. The baby looks perfect and is thriving which is definitely reassuring. 

Bump/Weight Gain: I am still not quite bumping and the above picture is a little bit deceiving. I feel really good though about how much weight I have gained and it has been much easier this time around... so far anyways! 

Cravings/Aversions: Aversions are in full force this week.  The idea of a burger still makes my stomach turn. The idea of dinner is really hard to stomach most nights. Baked potatoes are everything. I haven't been able to enjoy Dr. Pepper in It just doesn't taste right, but I have been drinking hot apple cider like it's going out of style. I have been craving fruit, particularly cantaloupe and watermelon. I have been craving pollo saltado from this little hole in the wall Peruvian place and will probably get it at some point in the next week. 

Gender Predictions: We know :)  We are going to share with our families in the next couple days and then we'll share on here next week!

Big Sister: She is a total character. We finally picked up some paint to paint her room and we are all so excited. Natalie's face totally lit up when the man at Lowe's showed her the lid of the paint container.  She keeps asking B when it will be time to paint.  We have some big plans for her big girl room and I am so excited to see it all come together! 

Miss Anything: At lunch today, the waitress asked if she could get us a drink and a margarita sounded divine; however, Texas Roadhouse has some really amazing sweet tea so that softened the blow.  I also miss sleeping through the night. 

Best Moment: Finding out gender :)

Can't Wait For: I cannot wait to put the kiddos rooms together. Slowly but surely I have been getting things out of #2s room and closet in preparation for it to be someone's room. I am also pretty excited about some sister dates I have coming up :) Lunch dates with my sister are one of my favorite things and we don't get to do them nearly enough even though we really don't live/work far from each other. OH! I am also excited to see Mr. Jon in the next couple weeks. We got him a pretty kick ass present and it came in and I am utterly in love with how it turned out! Jeez... so much to look forward to!
