Waiting For November

Why are we waiting for November?
Guess What?
We're Pregnant!
So Braden can become a big brother! 

Yay! I've been just itching to tell everyone, but the old fashioned gal in me wanted to wait for the comfort of getting to the 2nd trimester like we did last time...except...I'm showing already. Like, last week, definitely looking pregnant, showing! So today I am 9 weeks. Last time I told family and friends at 12 weeks and let everyone else just kind of find out. I announced it on Facebook at 17 weeks.

This time around I was so happy to be able to tell my mom right away. I tested really early and found out February 17th, only about 3 weeks along! Jay had a hockey game that night so I took pictures of my test and texted them to my eBFF Marie. She was thrilled for me and I was so excited to have someone to share the news with! I put this cute shirt on Braden in the morning and that's how I told Jay and Braden at the same time and there were hugs and kisses all around!
Best Big Bro
Pregnant With Baby #2
We told Jay's parents a couple of weeks later and then I've told all the people I told early last time. I've definitely felt a lot different with this pregnancy.
  • more easily nauseous, but not getting sick (praise God)
  • showing early
  • breaking out
  • having to shave more often (too much? Sorry, my blog!)
All these symptoms have lead me to have very strong vibes that Squishy is a girl. Yup, I've named "it" Squishy. Why? Because right now we call Braden "Squirt" sometimes, the little sea turtle from Finding Nemo, as in "let's see what Squirt does!" And Squishy? Cuz I love Ellen and this:

I know Dory calls Squishy a "him" but I could be wrong...! Even though I wasn't with Braden. I knew Braden was a boy from this early on last time too and I was right. So I guess we'll see. We'll be Team Green again and won't find out the sex at the anatomy scan at 19ish weeks! It's just more fun that way!
4 Weeks Pregnant
Instead of doing my biweekly belly pictures like I did last time, I've decided to do a Pinterest inspired monthly picture and then just do weekly cell phone pictures. Sorry, Squishy...you already have second pregnancy/second child syndrome. I care about you just as much but just already admit I don't have the energy to keep up with as much as I did with Braden!

And see, I'm already 9 weeks, did my 8 week picture...and haven't had time to edit it yet! I will get that one up here soon enough! And this is what I mean about showing early, this is me last week in Vegas, right at 8 weeks!

Well, that's about all for now! I'm so happy I am able to share this with you all!

    1. Oh thanks, Amanda! But you didn't even know you were pregnant with Gavin until 18 weeks...does that count? ;) I guess only time will tell, I still have girl vibes, even before the symptoms started!

  10. OH my gosh, congrats!! Um, I totally teared up.....geeze! :)

  11. Yay, congratulations officially :) So excited for you, sweetie! I'd consider being team green sometime, but my hubby couldn't stand not knowing. Ha! Will you do a gender neutral nursery or wait until squishy is born to do some of the decorating?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Thanks, Katie! Team Green just works for us...plus I know too many people who have been told the WRONG gender on their anatomy scan not to find out but a few weeks before the baby was born! Oops! We are keeping the will-be-nursery it's current color, a tannish-beige and then accent it with girl or boy colors and the theme will be owls!

  25. Congrats!!! I'm 13 weeks and it is def. different this time around. I'm nauseous but not puking, I'm always hungry, that kind of thing. I also still haven't started my monthly belly pictures. I'll get to it... eventually. It's just harder this time being pregnant AND chasing a toddler around haha.

    And I just realized that once again we're gonna have ours about a month apart too just like Braden and Tristan. I'm due October 6th hahaha. Crazy!

    Good luck!

    ReplyDelete
  26. CRAZY!! I just wanted to let you know; not only are our boys a week apart - our seconds will also be a week apart but that's not all - we BOTH got a positive on the SAME day!!

    BIG Congratulations!!
