Growing Baby 2-24 weeks!

We were 24 weeks last Thursday, July 7.

Little man is still growing big and strong, we are slowly but surely getting the house in order (still SO much to do), and I'm trying my best to keep up with an active toddler in this crazy summer heat!

Growing Baby 2-23 Weeks

Ok, so we were 23 weeks on June 29. Mom fail. It's just so much harder to sit down and write this out after chasing a 2.5 year old around all day.

A photo will have to do for this week.

Growing Baby 2- 22 Weeks!

Of course this post is late. They're always late this time around. Sorry, Baby M. I promise I love you just as much as Sawyer.

We were 22 weeks last Thursday. We had our anatomy scan ultrasound last Tuesday. We already knew we were having a boy, but the anataomy ultrasound is a little more in depth than just that. They looked at his brain and heart, measured his bones, and looked at all his other organs to make sure everything looks good. The tech said that little man looks pretty perfect, which was a big relief!

I still don't feel him as much as I did Sawyer. I'm not sure if it's because I spend my days chasing a toddler around and I'm not paying attention or maybe he just likes to snooze all day. He's most active at night, right when I try to lie down to go to sleep. Finding a comfortable position in which to sleep is challenging. He hates for me to lie on either side and will kick me over and over until I move. Lying on my stomach isn't an option, which sucks because I"m usually a stomach sleeper. Lying on my back is super uncomfortable as well, so I usually end up half on my side and half on my back, propped up with pillows. Super fun.

The nesting bug hit me last week and I felt like I had to do all. the. things. Sawyer and I cleaned out the garage and I went through 8 totes of his baby clothes and purged half of them. I cleaned out closets, deep cleaned bathrooms and the kitchen, and started on Sawyer's room. Poor David spent his weekend building furniture and lugging around heavy things for me. I'm pretty sure that he was glad to go back to work today! There is still so much to do, but I have to remind myself to take it easy and that I can't do it all at once.

Growing Baby 2- 21 Weeks!

21 weeks this week! It's crazy how fast these weeks are going.

I feel like at this point when I was pregnant with Sawyer, I had started getting things ready for him. I had the nursery planned and had bought furniture. We haven't done anything for this kiddo yet. I still have to finish Sawyer's room from when we moved! So much to do and so little time.

We've been at the beach this week, which has been so nice. We are staying on Anna Maria Island and it is by far the best beach I have ever been to. It's been so nice to get a break from everything back home. Sawyer LOVES the ocean and the beach. He is pretty fearless when it comes to water, which is exciting and terrifying for me. It's hard to believe that when we come back next year, we will have 2 little ones in tow.

I'm definitely feeling the aches and pains of pregnancy a lot earlier this time around. It's already getting uncomfortable/painful to lift and carry Sawyer and my energy level is so low. I'm in bed most nights by 9 because I can't keep my eyes open. I'd probably go to bed earlier than that if Sawyer would let me!

We have our next ultrasound on Tuesday and I can't wait to see how big this little man has gotten!

Growing Baby 2- 20 Weeks!

It's getting harder and harder to write these updates every week. Chasing a toddler and keeping up with everything else usually takes priority and by the time Sawyer is asleep, I'm ready to crash too!

I took this picture on time last week, but am just now posting.

Here we are at 20 weeks! It's so crazy that we are halfway through this pregnancy.

I wrote last week that I had to go to triage for headaches. I ended up back there last Wednesday because the headaches just wouldn't stop. They gave me more fluids and meds and thankfully my blood pressure stayed down. The headaches actually lasted until a few days ago, which was scary and frustrating. They're still not sure what caused them, but hopefully they are gone for good now!

Growing Baby 2- 19 Weeks!

Maybe one of these weeks I'll actually post an update on time. It's just a lot harder with a crazy 2.5 year old running around! We are 19 weeks (19 weeks, 5 days technically).

This pregnancy has definitely been harder on me than my first. Last Friday, I spent the day with what I thought was an awful sinus headache. I tried to tough it out, but it just kept getting worse. Saturday I went to the pharmacy and got some sinus meds and spent the day in bed. Sunday brought a little relief, but by Monday it was so much worse. I went in and my blood pressure was elevated (153/67). Since mine is usually on the low side, that was concerning. But baby boy was fine, so they gave me some meds for my headache and I was able to rest for a bit. I'm feeling better today. It's still there a little, but it's nowhere near what it was.

We leave for the beach this Saturday, so hopefully a week away from all the stress, etc will do us all some good! I can't wait to get away with my family and enjoy some time by the ocean! We haven't been to the beach since Sawyer was 9 months old, so I'm excited to see his reactions to it.

I'm starting to feel more little kicks these days, which is always really comforting. We think we've decided on a name for this little man, so we're pretty excited about that as well! I can't believe that this pregnancy is almost half way over!

Growing Baby 2- 18 Weeks!

We are 18 weeks this week! That means only 2 more weeks and we will be halfway through this pregnancy. That seems so crazy. Wasn't it just yesterday that I was sick all day, every day?

There's not much to report. Aside from being so sick earlier on, this pregnancy has been pretty uneventful. Half the time I forget I'm even pregnant. I'm looking forward to figuring out what I want to do with his nursery (and finishing Sawyer's big boy room!), finalizing his name, and hopefully feeling him move some more. I felt a few tiny little kicks this week, but that's been it.
