Baby 2, Pregnancy Updates

Dear Baby #2–7 Weeks

Dear Baby,

You’ve started to make your presence a little more over the past week. Extreme exhaustion has set it. I pretty much need to get over the idea of doing any thinking or work after 3:00 as I’m just so tired I can’t think. I rarely nap as it messes up my sleep pattern for the evening, but I need to rest nearly everyday when I get home from work. I don’t always sleep, but need to lie down and close my eyes for 20 minutes. On Sunday we drove home from the Wisconsin Dells and after unpacking a little, we laid down and I had the most devine nap of my life. I was OUT for a three solid hours. And it was amazing. Regardless of how much I sleep, I never wake up refreshed am always craving a nap.

Another fun pregnancy symptom is the amount of trips I make to the bathroom. I pee at least twice as much as I used to. Knock on wood, but I haven’t had any nausea or sickness yet. For the most part, I haven’t had any food aversions or cravings like I did with your sister. Most food doesn’t sound appetizing in general but I’m still eating everything. I also feel larger than I did with your sister. I’m not sure if it is because I weigh a couple pounds more than I did when I first got pregnant with Lexi or if things are advancing faster as this is time around, or if I’m just going to gain more weight this time around (although I really hope not, but doubtful I will be that lucky). I have a feeling I’m going to gain twice as much with you as I did with Lexi. Another difference this time around is acne. My face stayed relatively clear throughout my whole pregnancy and already, I’ve had several pimples.

Daddy and I have our appointment next week to see how your doing and make sure you’re still growing.

Other events that have happened in the last week, we spent 4 days in Wisconsin Dells and had a great time. Hopefully, we’ll head back in several years when you’re a little older and can enjoy the fun and entertainment of the water parks.

Stay safe in there little one,

Love, Mama
