14 Weeks - First Trimseter Update - Baby Number Two!

Well wow! Here we are, back to some maternity updates for the blog for baby number two. Still haven't really wrapped my mind around that. You see, this baby was kind of a surprise. I talk all about it in my YouTube video so I don't want to rehash here, but let's just say I am really fertile! haha Trevor and I have always wanted to have our children close together. We had talked about having our kids 18 months to 2 years apart, so this does fit into our plan nicely. This pregnancy so far has been a night and day compared to Ella's. I was incredibly sick the past few months, throwing up multiple times a days every day. Thankfully as I have entered the second trimester it has been so much better! I also haven't put on any weight, which by this time with Ella I had already gained about 10 pounds. My circumstances are just so different now, where I am able to be so much more active because I am not chained to a desk all day and being temped by donuts and eating out with co-workers haha I decided to fill out the little questionnaire I did with Ella's update and I plan to do the occasional video update as well on my YouTube channel. 

How far along: I am 14 weeks and 5 days!

How big is baby: The size of a Lemon :)

Weight Gain: I go into more detail about this in my YouTube video, but I haven't put on any weight. I keep fluctuating back and forth a pound. This pregnancy is already so different from Ella! haha It is so strange to see my tummy pop out but not see any weight gain on the scale!

Maternity clothes: I am still in my regular clothes! 

Stretch marks: No new ones!

Sleep: Thankfully so far no issues! I am still early enough along this hasn't been a problem yet.

Craving: Exactly what I craved last time I was pregnant haha I have been craving peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and cereal (Life, Grape Nut Flakes, Oatmeal Squares, Honey Bunches of Oats, and Special K Vanilla Almond.) Mac N Cheese, of course!

Feeling: Excited :) The first few months I was so sick and busy I hardly registered that I was pregnant, but now that my energy is coming back and I am feeling better and I have a little bump, I have been thinking about baby number two a lot more. I can't wait to see what he or she is like and watch them with Ella. Hearing the heart beat and seeing the ultrasound is always crazy, there is a little life in there! The body really is an amazing thing, and these little ones really are miracles. Trevor and I are thrilled that our family is growing. I just want to get all our kids here as soon as possible! I want my whole family together :) haha


  1. That's so exciting! I feel ya on being terrified. We always joke tha if my husband looks at me funny I get pregnant, but I forget my birth control sometimes and even if it's a few hours off we literally don't have sex the whole month. Haha I have nursed both my babies and my doctor told me after having both that nursing is not birth control cause you actually can ovulate while nursing, even before your period starts. So I've always been so careful just because i know I'm fertile, we also want our kids spread out a little hence the FEAR of getting pregnant.
    So awesome that you guys were able to time that perfectly, even if it was somewhat not on purpose. ;) can't wait to see the updates. Can you imagine Ella with a brother? Oh goodness, that would be so cute.

  2. Congrats! You look amazing, girl <3
