How big is baby? About 3 inches long. About the size of a pea pod. One ounce.
How is baby developing this week? Baby has tiny fingerprints!!
How I'm changing: I went to a conference for Moms this weekend and it was the first time I sat there, thinking about my kids, being a Mom, and the future, and it really hit me that I'm a mother to TWO. It's pretty scary and also really special too. I always knew we'd want another kid, and now that it's growing inside of me, it was just really cool to start shifting my brain from thinking of "Ok, so as Landon grows up" to "Ok so as both my children grow up". Going from using singular to plural. :)
What I'm eating: Breakfasts are oats with honey, blueberries, flaked coconut and a banana. Plus an English muffin w/pb. (YUM!) I've also had an occasional bowl of cereal too instead. Lunch has been heated up Boar's Head chicken deli meat on 1 piece of Ezekiel bread with swiss cheese, spicy mustard and bread and butter pickles. (YUM!) Plus a side salad with kale, cut up mandarin oranges, sliced almonds and olive oil drizzled for dressing. I'm sick of salads at lunch though now. I need a change. Snacks are fruit, Cliff bars, hard boiled eggs w/salt and pepper, and mugs of cereal (especially at night after dinner). Dinner is still pretty normal. I can't do BBQ. I'm craving fried chicken and bacon and had both of those cravings this weekend! I had chicken tenders and French fries for the first time in a LONG time and I had bacon on a sandwich. I felt like a rebel. Ha!
What I'm NOT eating: BBQ and really strong onion flavored things
How I'm feeling: This week was a rough one. I got my 2nd ever migraine on Wednesday night. I had taken Landon on a walk around the neighborhood (his request to take our dog...how do I say no). It was in the afternoon and in the 80s. It was hot and we were out there a while because we went to the playground after. After, I was wiped out and had a headache. I was feeling kind of sick to my stomach and by the time it was bed time, my headache had turned into a migraine. I woke up and it hadn't gone away. Luckily, my doctor called me in some medicine and Ben was able to take a long lunch break. I took the meds, which knocked me out, and napped for a couple hours. I woke up to no more migraine, but still a dull headache. I laid low the rest of the day and woke up the next morning feeling back to normal. Whew. The only other migraine I've had was when I was pregnant with Landon. I feel really nauseous looking at my phone or the computer too. I've had more headaches this week (the heat definitely makes it worse) and I've been hoping the nausea will subside but unfortunately it hasn't.
How my workouts are: I didn't get any workouts in other than the 1 walk that caused the migraine. Ha.
Thoughts this week: Feeling more peace about whatever gender it is. In the beginning the idea of having a girl scared the crap out of me. Mostly because boy is what I know and seems easy and comfortable. I immediately started praying through that and I'm continuing to, and starting to notice more peace about either one.
Highlights this week: Hello 2nd trimester!!!!! I'm excited to feel the baby.....come on baby movement!!!
Bump details: It's so much bigger than with Landon. I was looking back at 13 week pictures with Landon and laughed. I should upload a picture for next week to compare. It's really itchy too so I'm lathering in cocoa butter before bed each night. When I lay on my back I can feel my uterus...so crazy.
Facts this week:
- Maternity pants are my friend
- I just want to sleep all day
- I've been getting pretty bad heartburn after eating something spicy
- When I ask Landon where the baby is, he points at my belly and pulls up my shirt to see. :) If I ask him if it's a boy or girl or a brother or sister, the answer is always different. This week it was girl.
