Bumpdate: 17w2d

How Far Along: 17w2d

Weight: gained .5 of a lb as of my last appt (3/16) for a total of  +.05 lbs

Maternity Clothes: I'm still in the weird in between stage. Right now, there is no need for preggo tops...not even in the near future so it seems. I bought two new pairs of maternity jeans because none of my old maternity bottoms fit, they are all too big. (Since I lost a good amount of weight since last time) I have been wearing both pairs because they are super comfy. One is still kind of big but is better than being uncomfortable in normal pants.

Stretch Marks: Um, no

Sleep: Eh, it's better than it has been. But I still toss and turn alot and of course get up to pee!!

Movement: Yes! As of my 13th week. AND, at my u/s this past week the tech told me that my placenta is in front, which makes a cushion in between the baby and uterine wall. Which explains why I don't feel him strongly, just subtle wooshes here and there. But, he also is alot more chill than Peyton was. As soon as she started jabbing me, she didn't stop! lol

Food/Cravings: Hallelujah my food aversion is fading!! I'm almost able to eat whatever without having to really think about it. The chicken aversion is still the strongest, but there's improvement!!

Labor Signs: Um, no

Belly Button: Still a big gaping crater <>

What I miss: Sleeping NORMALLY, and not peeing all dadgum day. I am kind of sad that I won't be able to wear certain trends for the summer =/

Best Moment This Week: Finding out the gender! Peyton's going to have a little BROTHER!! Craziness!!; OH! and since it's been a few weeks since I've done one, we took Peyton to the Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom for her first time (well and I guess baby's first time too ;)) the first weekend in March and had a great time! I made it the entire day in the park and riding rides. Woohoo!

Weekly Wisdom: My motherly intuition is always wrong. lol. I kid, I kid (even though it feels that way sometimes) Really don't have anything for this week.

Baby #2 is a.......

 There is no denying. Haha.

 Our children love to show us their feet...cute little toes!!

 Wonderful 151 bpm

"Oh hello!"

Friday (3/16) we had our gender u/s. I had no feelings this time as to what baby was. And even if I did, I told everyone that I refused to say/guess because last time I just knew Peyton was a boy and I was so wrong! Even though I didn't think I had an idea, I guess I subconsciously did, because when I saw "it" (haha) and the tech said BOY, I was SO SHOCKED! lol. It was neat this go around because we brought Peyton with us. So she got to experience it with us. Even though she didn't know what was going on, it was special. I had to keep reassuring her that I was ok....I guess the tech using the wand on my belly made Peyton nervous, lol. A sweet memory for sure ♥

Now I must start training myself for a boy. This is brand new, uncharted territory people!!!
