17 & 18 Week Bumpdates

Okay, I swear that I'm trying to make the time to blog... but these past few weeks have been even crazier than usual :/ Like I always say, *hopefully* things will slow down soon, but who knows if that will happen... ugh, too busy! Anyway, I wanted to make it a point to get both this and Jacksie's next update written this week and figured I'd start with my bumpdate because it would be shorter and easier, ha! Here is what S.B.B. and I have been up to the last two weeks.
Sorry... making the bed, cleaning the mirror, and picking things up was just too much to ask!  
How far along: 16 weeks, 4 days

Total Weight Gain/Loss: I had a regular doctor's appointment last week and weighed in at 149, bringing me to a 12 lb. weight gain. 

Maternity clothes: I splurged on a few maxi skirts (pictured) and am kicking myself for not doing it sooner! They are so comfortable and forgiving... I was told by many that I'd gain faster/show earlier with this second baby and they weren't kidding!

Stretch marks: Nada.

Sleep: Eh... I still get up at least once a night to use the restroom and have about a 50/50 chance of immediately falling back asleep... we FINALLY got Jax back into his own bed at night too which has been a comfortable blessing for all! (More room = happy mamma!)

Best moment last week: It has actually been a very bittersweet week. My amazing 96-year-old Great Aunt Millie (who only lives a few blocks away from us) was given a few days to live so we've been over there daily entertaining her (with Mr. Personality, Jax) and visiting. The initial diagnosis was a week and a half ago and she's still going strong -- and still as feisty as ever -- so we've been enjoying this special time with her. 

Movement: Not really... but I can feel those weird little hardening/softening of the uterus contractions a few times a day so it's easier to tell where he is. 

Food cravings/aversions: Aside from fruit, no real cravings... we've just been overeating!! (My parents have been staying the night at Millie's this week and we go out/order in almost every night.)

Gender: BOY!!!

Labor signs: No, thank goodness!

Belly button - in or out? In. 

What I miss: Being ahead on work... ha! 

What I am looking forward to: Mom and I leave for Vegas early Thursday morning :D

15 & 16 Week Bumpdates

I'm about a week and a half late posting my 15 week bumpdate... and about 1/2 week late posting my 16 week bumpdate... so I figured I would just combine the two into one rockin' post! We spent all of last week visiting Brandon's extended family in Bismarck and since returning home, we have been busy cleaning and slowing preparing our house to sell (more on that later). Anyway, it's been an eventful couple of weeks here, so let's get bumpin'!

Please ignore my face and note the adorable sleeping toddler and kitty in the background!
How far along: 16 weeks, 4 days

Total Weight Gain/Loss: I had my 16 week checkup on Friday and weighed in at 147 (which is 10+ lbs from my pre-pregnancy weight)... I am almost 94% sure that a lot of that weight gain came from all the delicious foods we ate in Bismarck... 

Maternity clothes: No, but everything continues to feel tighter and tighter. 

Stretch marks: Nope.

Sleep: I was shocked by how well I slept in Bismarck! Brandon, Jax, and I all shared a full-size bed and honestly, it's the best I've slept in months! (I think we were so exhausted by the end of each day that we all crashed hard.) Now that we're home, I'm sleeping okay and am maybe getting up to use the restroom once or twice a night. 

Best moment last week: Finding out that S.B.B. is a BOY!!! Brandon's sweet aunt threw us a gender reveal during a family get together so we could all find out together -- it was so fun! Full post coming soon :)

Movement: There have been a few times now where I've thought I felt a kick, but I'm pretty sure it was just gas bubbles. (Sorry for the TMI, but if you've ever been pregnant, you know exactly what I'm talking about!) 

Food cravings/aversions: No aversions this week, but I'm finally begging to crave veggies again (mainly in the form of relish trays with lots of ranch dressing)! 

Gender: BOY!!!

Labor signs: No and hopefully it stays that way for another 22 weeks or so! 

Belly button - in or out? In. 

What I miss: The North Dakota bunch.

What I am looking forward to: Mom's and my big Vegas getaway in a few weeks!
