Let the Bumpdates begin! 13 weeks with 10, 12 & 13 week pictures)

I haven't been doing my weekly bumpdates with baby # 2, and I just went through and saw Adeline's bumpdates, even though the pictures aren't there (I am going to try and remedy that) I love reading them. I decided I don't want this baby or myself to get deprived of that opportunity to come back and read these.

Plus one of the reasons I didn't want to do bumpdates is because I am 20 some pounds heavier than I was with Adeline. But I need to learn to love myself and my body just the way I am.

10 weeks pregnant
12 weeks

13 weeks

Onto my 13 week Bumpdate! :)

How far along: 13 weeks
How big is baby: As long as a pea pod
 Total weight gain: 2 lbs
Maternity clothes:  Ever since having Adeline jeans have never fit me right, so I moved to maternity jeans right away, and wondered why I just didn't stay in them after having Adeline! however I do have a pair of jeans that always was a bit bigger on me, that I can still wear, they are just getting tight in the belly now. 
Best moment of the week:  My husband saying we can do the gender ultrasound at a 3d imaging place in about 3 weeks!!! Due to insurance issues we have to wait until January (when I will be about 24 weeks) to do the 20 week ultrasound. A friend told me about this place that does gender reveal ultrasounds for $100! That is $400 cheaper than the hospital! He agreed that we could do that so I will be setting up the appointment tomorrow! wooohoo!! 
Food cravings: pablos. So far this pregnancy I have been craving big hearty meals.  
Food aversions: nothing. 
Symptoms: some cramping (which I assume is just my body growing) and my boobs are sore (and growing (- I don't need them to grow. haha)!) Other than that I am feeling fabulous! 
Movement: none yet
Gender: hopefully only a few more weeks!
What I’m looking forward to: My growing belly, finding out gender, feeling movement! 
What I miss: nothing. I LOVE LOVE LOVE knowing there is a little baby in my belly!! It is just the most amazing thing ever!
Next appt: I need to call and schedule it. But in about 4 weeks.

Lately- and some exciting news!

First things first! We are so excited!!! 

Adeline was "stuck" so I had to take a picture before I rescued her. hehe.

I totally think this baby is going to be a boy, because so far (in my 12 weeks of pregnancy) I have been craving meals, feasts. I dream of thanksgiving and big hearty meals. Like this one, I made at 11 PM. With Adeline I craved sweets. With Adeline I also craved milk and pickles, NOT this pregnancy. 

I also joined a MOPS group at our church! We just had our first meeting, and I am really excited for this year! 

During my morning (all day) sickness days, we had snack in our bed, she is just too cute not to share this picture. 

She loves to play outside! I love how this picture captures her movements when walking/running. 

 You can't really tell, but she fell down our deck stairs and has a goose egg on her forehead. However, this photo captures her beauty so nicely. :)

Here is baby # 2!! They changed my due date to April 26th based on baby's measurements, fine by me.  I am planning on this baby being a May baby. Because I remember when I was 39 weeks with Adeline I would wake up heart broken I hadn't gone into labor while I was asleep, and I really don't want to do that to myself again. We don't have a nickname for this baby yet. Adeline was named "ice" because I thought it was funny, "ice berg" :) Nothing has stuck yet. 

Adeline is really serious about her bath time playing. :) Believe it or not, she really was having a blast!  

 I will be doing bumpdates! Maybe starting this week. ;)

This morning I got to spend the morning with my husband (and daughter- obviously) running errands.. let me tell you, it was fabulous!

My morning started off a little stressful,  we were getting ready to leave the house I just got the "time crunch" stress.

As time went on we both just had more and more fun together! He has been working  a lot of hours, he is currently starting  transitioning into a new career and so he is working two jobs right now. Soon he will be working 70 hours a week. 7 days a week. 10 hours a day. I am a little sad, but I know it is temporary and it is a step in the right direction for our family.

 It may be a baby step, but it's a step!

Today we talked, we joked, we planned, we dreamed, we opened our hearts to one another. (swoon)


Our 5th wedding anniversary is coming up in August and we are going "up north" as us Minnesotans call it! :) It is a few hours north of where we live. I can't wait!  We will be staying in a little cottage for a few days. They have lots of daily activities and Adeline being 1.5 years will be able to enjoy it this year so much more than she did when she was 6 months old. :) I am so excited! Just to have a few days to get away, enjoy the lake, get away from the daily hustle and bustle is going to be awesome! I am not sure if they have internet, and I know they don't have cable. I hope to be able to read every night and just relax and enjoy our family being together! Porkchop, our english bulldog, will be joining us too! He sleeps about 18 hours a day, so he will be happy as a clam if we take him on two walks a day, and then some peace to sleep!

Look what I have!

I am so excited! I got 3 cucumbers from my garden today! AND I have tons of growing tomatoes! And I have 1 green pepper gowing!!! WOOOOHOO!! That is like a total success! Well much more successful than my previous attempts. :)

I am so excited! Maybe next year I will try having chickens!

Well... I may not be ready for that yet.

Look at that weird cucumber in the middle! It was on the ground growing, so maybe its like... SUPER INFUSED with nutrients... or something..
