15 weeks!

This week marks 15 weeks! Thats when I started taking belly shots last time!

So here is the comparison! I am WAY bigger this time.

I also looked much better last time :(

Not sure if its the stress of having a toddler or if its that my hair despoeratley needs to be cut,

or perhaps I need to splurge and spend $$ on quality skin care and make up like I used

to in my pre mommy days?

Or is it just that this little ducky is a girl and she's stealing all my beauty! LOL

I am going to start with the survey I did during my last pregnant, I want things to be "fair" after all! I will only do this once a month or so!

How far along? 15 weeks

Total Weight Gain? I am still fluctuating between the same 3 lbs I was pre pregnancy!

Maternity Clothes? YES everything! A few regualr shirts but pants are all maternity now!

Stretch Marks? Just lots of leftovers from Logan!

Sleep? Just OK. I wake every 4 hrs to pee and my school/work/toddler are more disruptive then the pregnancy is!

Best Moment this week? Feeling a STRONG thump from ducky!

Movement? A lot more and stronger everyday! Still moslty flutters but the odd bigger movement too now!

Food Cravings? pickles, fruit juice, pizza

Gender? I'm thinking girl, but maybe thats being hopeful we will be thrilled with

either and are team green as of now!

Labour Signs? None!

Belly Button? No change!

I miss the most? wine and travelling!

What am I looking forward to the most? Hearing ducky's heartbeat on Friday!

Milestones? happily in 2nd tri!

14 weeks & the zoo

I'm 14 weeks this week! I'm still feeling pretty good, but have had a nasty cold/cough

thats kicking my butt!

I haven't gained any weight this far and I continue to have no morning sickness!

I have an appetite but try to keep it somewhat healthy. I do strongly believe

that you should indulge during pergnancy tho!

I have felt baby move a few times already! Just the little flutters, but it excites me so much. I started to feel it just around 13 weeks, it seems early but I'm sure that was it!

Here I am this week at 14 weeks, next week I will include a comparison picture from

my pregnancy with L, I didn't even start until 15 weeks!

Despite the craziness of my life I am REALLY going to try and post a bit more regularly

to document things just as well for ducky as I did for L.

Dear Ducky, Mommy loves you so much already. From the moment I knew you were coming I knoew you would make our lives so much richer. You have an amazing big brother who is already so excited to meet you! We can't wait till Spring until we get to find out if your a brother or a sister, Daddy and L think your a girl, mommy really isn't sure these days! Please stay strong and safe in there! May God Bless you sweet baby, xoxox Mama

And nw the zoo! In Septmeber *I think* while it was still warm we made it to the zoo!

We decided to buy a membership so I hope we make it again very soon!

Mr. Logan still has the capability of sleeping anywhere! Just like his mama!

My boys! I love them so much!
Mama's boy, we were waiting for the Polar Bears, but I think it was too warm for them!

2nd trimester!

Do you see that sweet smile!? God I love this boy.
He is the highlight of every day.
He's talking so much now, we can have real conversations which is fun!
Except he's been telling some stories! When you ask him who made the mess in his
playroom (as you can see above!) he says it was daddy or the kitty! Stinker.
He's a lot of fun these days, and just a joy.
Of course we have trying moments, but for the most part he is very well behaved.
I am officially in my 2nd trimester today! So I guess its time I shared some details....
I found out I was pregnant in early August, I have a few early posts I wrote and saved that I will put up soon, I wanted to have records of notes to this baby like I did L.
After a few early scares and repeared ultrasounds (I had a cyst as I did with Logan). We saw that
all was well and we had another little one on the way!
The day after I found out I had Logan bring Les a new book to read it was titled
"I'm a big brother!" Les was surprised and very excited!
I have been tired, but remember I am working close to full time hours, in school and a mama of a very active 2 year old. My mom and Les have been huge helps!
Other then fatigue I have been feeling pretty good, some heartburn and occasional nausea, but NOTHING like when I was pregnant last time! I'm not complaining trust me!
My due date is April 17th, my stats final is April 18th, haha its ok you can laugh.
I'm just trusting it will all work out, I am going to talk to the professor and see when teh earliest date I can write is, and cross my fingers that baby stays in and my blood pressure stays down until after that date! GO ahead, say it, I'm crazy....
As with Logan, we are team green, for now I'm referring to baby as ducky, since when I ask L what's in mommy's belly he says its a ducky in there! He may be dissapointed come spring!
Have you heard you show earlier with your second!?...
This is me at 12 weeks 1 day
Here I am at 13 weeks 3 days!
I haven't gained any weight but I've defintely got a bump!

Logan has something to share....

Apple Picking!

I love the fall!! I'm sorry if any readers still exsist! Our life is officially totally crazy.
School seems to be going well, I am overwhelmed and even a little surprised with the amount
of work that it entails! I am not dumb tho (as I feared) and while I am surviving on a shockingly small amount of sleep I am doing well (I think!).
Les and I are still working on finding the right balance but we are trying.
The house is suffering, Thank God for my mom, she is such a huge help to us!
Its Fall, the weather here has been perfect. I love milkd jean and sweater weather!
We went apple picking last weekend. I am DETERMINED to still have quality family time!
This means most nights I am up till 2am or late doing school work, and I'm up by 8 (5:30 if its a work day!) to get our day going!
I'm tired but all is going very well! I promise to try and update more often!
Here is our little family! Makes my heart swell!
Logan loved up every second of it!
The apples were delicious I'm hoping to find time to bake later today!
He looks so grown up in this photo, it kills me!
With my friends little one!
Train Ride!
Hay Pile Climbing. He would love country living! Too bad mama's not cut out for it!
