Baby J #2:Second Trimester Bumpdate!

How Far Along? 28 weeks.... second trimester is done! So crazy, time is flying!

Size of Baby: A large eggplant!

Gender: BABY BOY!

Weight Gain: + 13 lbs

Maternity Clothes: Already getting to the stage where I hate clothes. All my maternity pants are sagging and falling off by the end of the day and I just don't like any of my shirts. Leggings for the win! :)

Nursery: We've begun to clear out/organize our spare room which will turn into baby boy's nursery, now it's time to decorate! :)

Movement: SO MUCH MOVEMENT! This baby moves WAY more than Siena ever did, which is crazy to me! It is almost all day every day!

Symptoms: I have felt pretty good thus far, but as time moves on I am starting to be exhausted again and doing everyday tasks makes me so tired. I just found out that my iron is low so maybe that could be contributing to it as well. I also have gestational diabetes this time around, which is a bummer, but so far it has been controlled just by changing my diet up to make sure I eat more frequently (knock on wood it stays that way!)
Sleep: Still sleeping pretty good at night.... except for getting up to pee a hundred million times per night! 

Cravings: I have been craving COLD MILK all the time, definitely the craving of the pregnancy!

What I Miss: Not giving myself a finger prick 4 times a day! 

Best Moment This Trimester: Finding out we were having a baby boy! We found out at a little gender reveal party along with both of our families which made it so much fun and exciting! I had been thinking it was a boy and this time I was right!

Looking Forward To: Meeting our babe, enjoying a few adult beverages again, wearing my regular clothes, and seeing Siena become a big sister!
