39 Week Bumpdate

Image
Y'all, it is so weird doing a 39 week bumpdate post! Since I had Rory at 38 weeks and 4 days, this is the longest I've been pregnant.


How Far Along: 39 weeks and 2 days

Due Date: 4/14/18 but my c-section is scheduled for 4/11/18! 2 DAYS until she is here!!!

Baby is the Size of: a watermelon! Baby #2 should weigh 7 lbs and measure 19-22" long. I had my last ultrasound at 33 weeks and 4 days where Rhylan was weighing 5 lbs 8 oz. The high risk Dr is thinking she'll weigh between 8 1/2- 8 3/4 lbs when born.. I'm going to say she is going to be 8 lbs 2 oz and 22" long at birth.

Weight Gain: 43 lbs.

Symptoms: Nausea, vomiting ("controlled" by Diclegis and Promethazine), MOODY, emotional, fatigue, Depression, super EXHAUSTED, lower back/ tailbone pain, acid reflux ("controlled" by Pepcid- I take this twice a day and am having issues with heartburn and acid reflux again), cramping, pelvic pain/ pubic bone pain, pregnancy brain, braxton hicks, pressu…

Easter Weekend Recap

Image
I seriously can't believe this was Rory's 2nd Easter! It goes by so fast y'all! And we totally hit a parenting fail. We were going to dye eggs this year but had like no time in our schedule. We picked up an egg dying kit Friday night and when we went to dye the eggs Sunday morning, we realized we had no vinegar. Sooo egg dying will have to wait until next year.

   Oh yea and good thing we didn't take her to see the Easter Bunny. He showed up at the grocery store Friday night and she was NOT a fan.

   Anyways, so our Easter festivities started Saturday with an Easter egg hunt and late lunch at my aunt's house. A lot of my cousins and family were there with their kids and it was so much fun. It is especially awesome b/c a lot of the kids are so close in age. The older ones are close in age and then all of the younger ones are too. And what is even more fun is all of the younger ones are girls and my 2nd little girl will be added to the bunch in 1 week (or less if …

What's in My 1 Year Old's Easter Basket

Image
I can't believe it is not only almost the end of March but almost Easter!!! I still need to buy some plastic eggs (b/c why not?) and an egg dye kit for us to try to squeeze in some time to dye eggs with Rory this weekend.

   Anywho... I'm sure there are so many of you out there that are wondering what the heck you put in a 1 year old's Easter basket. Whether it be for your own kid, your niece/ nephew, grandchild, or whoever, I'm going to let you in on what we put in Rory's Easter basket. By the way, can you believe this is Rory's SECOND Easter?!!! Like how?!

   So I've been storing Rory's Easter presents in Rhylan's room and waited for her to go to bed so that I could finally put it together last night. She definitely got a little extra this year. I think I kind of wanted to spoil her a little extra since this will be her last Easter as an only child (unless Rhylan comes early).

    Oh and that beautiful Easter basket is actually the Easter basket…

Baby is the Size of: a winter melon! Baby #2 should weigh 6.5 lbs and measure 19-22" long. I had my last ultrasound at 33 weeks and 4 days where Rhylan was weighing 5 lbs 8 oz.

36 Week Bumpdate

Image
How Far Along: 36 weeks and 2 days

Due Date: 4/14/18 but my c-section is scheduled for 4/11/18! But I would love for her to come tomorrow b/c tomorrow is the first day of spring and Rory was born on the first day of winter. How cool would it be to have a baby born on the first day of winter and one born on the first day of spring?!

Baby is the Size of: a large cantaloupe! Baby #2 should weigh 6 lbs and measure 19-22" long. I had my last ultrasound at 33 weeks and 4 days where Rhylan was weighing 5 lbs 8 oz. The high risk Dr is thinking she'll weigh between 8 1/2- 8 3/4 lbs when born and that I'll give birth between 38- 39 weeks like last time (I'll be 38 weeks on March 31st- that is this month!!!). I'm going to say she is going to be 8 lbs 2 oz and 22" long at birth.

Weight Gain: 38 lbs. The number "38" isn't so bad... it is the fact that I now weigh what I weighed when I gave birth to Rory. I have to keep reminding myself that I started out this p…

First Pregnancy Compared to Second Pregnancy

Wow look at me- 3 blog posts in 1 week, who is this woman???

   So I decided to write a blog post comparing my pregnancies b/c as they say, "Each pregnancy is different". I seriously want to roll my eyes when Drs say that when I bring up something different about this pregnancy. I'm also a hypocrite b/c I've said this to a lot of women on my pregnancy app. I am 35 weeks and 4 days (4 weeks exactly from my c-section date!!!), so obviously there will be a few more things I haven't been able to compare yet but these are some comparisons as of right now.

1. Positive Pregnancy Test
First Pregnancy: Around 5 weeks? But then again, we weren't really trying per se, so I wasn't anxiously testing.

Second Pregnancy: I started feeling nauseous and different around 3 weeks and started testing. I would get very faint positive lines but thought my eyes were fooling me or that they could be control lines. I got my first definite positive (with the words and everything)…
