I finally had the energy to start my week to week baby bump posts. This pregnancy compared to my first, is completely different. My first trimester I spent lots of time trying to take naps and gain my strength to actually do something productive. No motivation whatsoever with baby #2. I’m starting to feel much better now. I’m still doing my yoga from time to time and trying to fit in a 2 mile walk everyday. It’s been really hot in LA so the past week I’ve been a hermit. I’m getting back into the routine again. Here is my first baby bump photo with baby #2!
Total weight gain/loss: Gained 10 lbs total
Exercise: Mommy and Me yoga and walks around the neighborhood. I include lunges and squats throughout the walk.
Maternity clothes: None yet!
Sleep: I am so exhausted with baby #2 compared to my first born. I go to bed at 9-9:30pm and wake up with the worst allergies ever.
Best moment this week: Getting some of my energy back.
Tim’s best moment this week: “Corina’s fatigue and irritation with me and her nausea is getting better.”
Miss Anything: That’s easy…. BOOZE
Movement: none yet.
Food cravings: besides my top fav, I’ve been throwing down lots of gold fish puffs!! Ugh, so delish and addicting. Just as good as Cheeto Puffs! Lots of cold watermelon (I can eat a whole one in a day), pineapple, cupcakes, ruffles with french onion dip, and bacon.
Anything making you queasy or sick: The smell of anything cooked in a crockpot. Yuck.
Have you started to show yet: big and fast.
Belly Button in or out? In
Happy or Moody most of the time: Most of the time I try to keep my patience with a toddler running around. My hormones kick in every now and then, but then I pull myself together after the scream. Haha!
Looking forward to: Getting a new car!!! We need a bigger automobile to fit two munchkins. My current sports car is the size of a peanut. It’s annoying.
Difficulties: Very very tired by the end of the day. Sometimes I lose my energy around 10am. It sucks. Allergies- sneezing and stuffy nose. I am also finding it difficult to give Liam baths. Usually Tim is around after work to takeover. It’s helps tremendously.
Fun Fact: Baby #2 is about 4 inches long and weighs about 2.5 ounces.
