Hey everyone! LONG time, no see in this space. I’m back though with exciting news! I am pregnant with BABY #2, and we are thrilled!
I did a fun little Q&A last time with Mila, so wanted to do it for this baby too!
How far along? 13 weeks!
Due date? February 14th – Valentine’s Day 2021! We tried really hard to not have another November baby because all of our birthdays are in that month, and LOTS of our family too.
Size of our baby? Baby is the size of a jalapeño or a lemon right now! 2.91 inches – so tiny!
Food Cravings? Oh my gosh, I’ve had SO many cravings this time which I didn’t with Mila. Coke floats (& I’m not a huge ice cream person), anything salty, anything with lime and Tajin, virgin micheladas/chiltons, Julio’s salsa, Sour cream, Rosa’s fajitas
Food aversions? Chicken – It’s so hard too because it makes it hard to eat healthier and not pack on the pounds! lol
Pregnancy Symptoms? This trimester has been a lot tougher than the last go round with Mila. I had headaches for 2-3 weeks nonstop and HORRIBLE congestion. It made me a little paranoid during the times we’re living in now. That finally went away, but then came the nausea mostly in the last week. I tend to get nauseous around the middle of the day like 3 p.m. Also, SO EXHAUSTED.
Sleeping? I’m not a great sleeper to begin with, so the nightly potty breaks have made it worse. I haven’t gotten too uncomfortable yet, and we finally upgraded to a king sized bed, so it’s SO much better.
Will we find out the gender? We are actually finding out TONIGHT! I’m so excited! We really wanted to have a big gender reveal party like we did last time with all our family and friends, but for obvious reasons, we can’t this time. We decided to do our own with just Kalep, Mila and I then surprise our families tomorrow evening.
When did we find out we were pregnant? I found out SO early on this time like at 4 weeks which makes it even harder to keep a secret and I’m always so paranoid to hit the 12 week mark. It also happened so quickly this time because we thought we wouldn’t get pregnant until fall/winter because it took us so long with Mila.
Gender? I keep going back and forth on what I think baby #2 is. I did the ring trick and it says BOY and it was correct with Mila. A lot of the “myths” or “wives tales” point to Boy but the heart rate was also a little higher which is typical for girls, so we’ll see! Kalep is the last “Warden”, so we would love a boy and to have a pair of boy and girl, but I always wanted a sister so Mila would love a sister too. Guess we’ll see!
Bump? I’m not sure if it’s a bump or a food baby from everything I’ve been eating, but I think it’s finally starting to form a little bump…kind of.
How does Mila feel about it? She doesn’t fully understand, but her baby cousin was just born last week, and she LOVES her. We were worried about how she’d react to a new baby in the family, but she has done great. She was a little scared at first, but didn’t want to leave her side after a while. I think she thinks Lenny is a little doll, and just wants to take care of her. Hoping she’s the same with little brother or sister! Anytime I tell her I have a baby in my tummy, she asks if my tummy hurts (lol!)
That covers it for now! Hope you have a great Wednesday!
