Growing Baby 2- 26 Weeks!

We were 26 weeks on July 20th.

This week was a rough one all the way around. My body is starting to really hurt. My ribs, my back, and my hips are killing me. It's getting harder to breathe and it's even worse when I'm chasing Sawyer around in the crazy summer heat. I'm waking up every night around 3:30/4 and I'm usually not able to fall back to sleep. I'm having crazy calf spasms as well, which basically feels like someone is ripping my calf off.

Because of the lack of sleep and how uncomfortable I am, plus my stress level with all the things that need to be done, my patience with Sawyer wears thin easily and then I feel awful. I have a few weeks off from teaching now and hopefully I'll be able to rest for a bit.

Growing Baby 2- 25 Weeks

We were 25 weeks on July 13. Baby M, I'm really on the ball with these blog posts.

You are moving more and more these days. Or at least I'm noticing it more, which must mean you're getting bigger! You keep me awake all night long, which I hope isn't an indication of how you will be once you're here! Although I'm not sure that anyone could be worse than your brother when it comes to sleeping.

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!
