Baby Stella and What it’s like to be Pregnant Again – Log #2 {24 weeks}

Here we are for log #2! I am around 6 months pregnant now and counting down the weeks (OK, minutes) until I am due. I will be 100% honest and say I am not a pleasant pregnant person. I am much more excited to meet our baby boy and experience all things newborn versus carrying this weight around!

Cravings: Still loving red grapes and lately I’ve been SO thirsty. I love the large teas from Quick Trip. I am limiting caffeine just to be safe, but not completely cutting it out like I did with Abrielle. I also love cherry limeades and soft pretzels.

Movement: This boy has been on the move since 16 weeks. He particularly likes to dance on my bladder at night and at the most inopportune times.

Measurements: My OB said he’s on track to be about the same weight as Abrielle was – close to 7 lbs.  I sure hope so! Much respect to all the amazing women out there who carry larger babies and twins.  Fingers crossed for 2 weeks early like my first as well. She was healthy at 6 lbs, 5 oz and it was healthier for my body too.

The Ugh Factor: I hate to complain because I know so many women struggle with fertility and it’s a blessing to carry my own baby.  But, I will say I am constantly exhausted with nagging back and hip pain. I haven’t had a restful sleep in months due to constant bathroom breaks and aches. Even when I really just want to lay on the couch, I am most comfortable when active and mowing the lawn! Thank goodness for another summer pregnancy! I mowed every week when pregnant with Abrielle, up until literally the day I went into labor. Can you guess what I will be doing the weekend of July 20? LOL!

Big sister: While she has plenty of terrible 2 meltdowns, her sweet soul brings me to happy tears. She is going to be such a great big sister. She’s been in awe of her best friend Maddie’s newborn sibling. She includes her baby brother in her prayers and likes to kiss my stomach.

Photo shoots: I am still offering photo sessions but I am sure I will slow it down as we get closer to July.  Then the goal is to be back in action later in the Fall for the busy season!

Abrielle is keeping Abby’s memory alive.

Remington and Stella wrestle like this any chance they can. She’s definitely keeping him young.
