As many of you know, I have been super lax about doing a weekly bumpdate (sorry!). I have been so busy with Cam, changing jobs, and being exhausted that I just haven’t had much time or energy to relish this pregnancy. I know that sounds horrible, but it’s definitely been an adjustment!
I think being a mom of 2 is going to be a huge adjustment for all of us. Cam can be a total mama’s boy sometimes, so it’s hard to think of how things are going to be when I am trying to nurse or care for the new babe. I know it’s do-able, but will just take some time to get used to.
As stated before, I was extremely sick with Cam and had been sick with this pregnancy until about 16 (ish) weeks. The struggle is real, people! For those of you who never get sick during your pregnancies- count your blessings! For those of you that do, I have complete respect for you. It’s rough. Now that we are (hopefully) passed that point, here are some bumpdates!
//how many weeks? 18 ish
//cravings? cheeseburgers, salty foods, and finally Dr. Pepper again (my forever addiction). I laugh at the people who crave fruits and veggies
//food aversions? any kind of BBQ meat. Mark literally wants to stab his eyes out (it’s his fave)
//belly button in or out? it’s def starting to poke out, as I expected!
//gender? we don’t know! we both want another boy, but are blessed either way!
//strange dreams? yes. very vivid dream last night of a cricket jumping at me and into my hair. if you know me, you know I hate any and all bugs. TERRIFYING.
//movements? yes. feeling from inside and outside already! loves to move at night.
//is Cam excited? I laughed at this question. He literally has no idea what is going on. When I say baby, he says “Duke” (our dog) and smiles, soooo ??? Probably not.
