[[ Month One with Baby Two ]]

Well, we’re actually  a little bit father along than one month now. We’ll pretend I posted this back in May. But we weren’t quite ready to share the news with the world… so I’ve had this sitting in my drafts for awhile. But here I am to catch you up over the next few days. Seeing all those adorable pregnancy blogs out there and looking back on my pregnancy with Mitchell, I didn’t keep track of anything. Besides a foggy memory here and there about what it was like… and a few cell phone belly selfies and some sonogram pictures, I didn’t write a single thing down. Now I wish I would have, so I’m not going to make that mistake again! All you people out there that think the pregnancy updates are annoying and completely uninterested, I really won’t be offended. All you others, read on. I know it’s a little unrealistic to expect myself to do weekly updates like all you others out there, so here’s my stab at monthly updates. Boy, do I wish I would have done this with Mitchell!

How far along: One Month! Our official due date is January 11th, 2015!

Size of the baby: A tiny little poppy seed 🙂

Total weight gain: None [Yet]

Maternity clothes? Nope, still buried in a tub in the garage.

Sleep: The same… only thing stopping me is a three month old puppy who wakes up more than my three month old ever did!

Best moment of the month: Finding out we were expecting! I was actually unwrapping my Moe’s burrito onto my plate [pregnant girl foreshadowing maybe?] when Steve checked the test, and came out with a smile on his face. I knew he knew better than to play a joke on me like that, but I had to see for myself. There is was plain as day… P.r.e.g.n.a.n.t. Then we sat on the couch, watched TV, and ate burritos. Guess it hadn’t quite sunk in yet. I did ask Steve if he was excited though, and he so eloquently replied, “Yea I’m glad I knocked you up!”

Miss anything? Not yet.

Movement: Not yet.

Food cravings: Besides the usual sweet cravings, nope. But that’s pretty standard for me to crave food so who really knows if it’s even pregnancy related 🙂

Anything making you queasy or sick: I’m crossing my fingers this is going to go like the last go round and we skip the morning sickness stage all together!

Labor signs: Way to early.

Symptoms: I should have realized I was pregnant when my inlaws were visiting and I had to pee. All the time. So much that I had to make us stop during an hour long drive two different occasions. I’m surprised no one figured it out then! Oh and the three giant pimples on my chin. That was another sign I overlooked.

Belly Button in or out? IN.

Wedding rings on or off? ON! Again, hopefully this time the belly button stays in and the wedding rings stay on! These are certainly some pregnancy symptoms I don’t mind going without.

Happy or Moody? Pretty much over the clouds right now! Mitchell completely fills my life with joy and I look at my family every single day and wonder what I did for God to give me such a beautiful life. And now we’re adding another? Blessed ❤

Looking forward to: Spending the rest of the night on Pinterest pinning baby things!

Not sure if you can tell – but Mitchell is holding up one finger there… I’m gonna say it’s for ONE month! [And not because we’ve been practicing for his first birthday!] 😉

  1. I know! I see everyone else's and I should have done it with my first, but I didn't start blogging until he was born! She will really love that someday! I'll have to check out Mixbook 🙂
