Feeling very pregnant

I thought I would publish this post now that we have announced...

I am 5 weeks and 5 days along today. It has been almost 3 weeks since I found out that Sophia is going to be a big sister!! We are very very excited :) I found out I was pregnant super early so it's making this pregnancy drag on and on. I didn't start getting morning sickness until a couple of days ago, and then it hit hard. I never threw up when I was pregnant with Sophia but I can't say the same for this pregnancy. I can tell this one is going to be different.

I've seen these pregnancy surveys in other people's blogs before and since I didn't start my blog until after Sophia was born I thought it would be good to start now.

How far along? 5 weeks and 5 days

Is this your 1st pregnancy? Nope, my second!

Was this pregnancy planned? Yes, we were very excited about giving Sophia a sibling.

What is your due date? Estimated due date as of right now is Feburary 4th, but I haven't seen the dr yet so that could still change.

Do you want to know the sex? No, we are waiting to find out at the delivery :)
Total weight gain/loss: I've lost 4 lbs since we started trying to conceive. So -4. I gained 40 lbs with Sophia and would really like to keep it around 20 lbs this pregnancy but we'll see!
Maternity clothes? None yet, but I stay home with Sophia most of the time so I usually wear comfy clothes
Stretch marks? None yet, I still have a few very light, barely visable stretch marks from Sophia. Let's hope I get lucky this time too!
Sleep: I had to break down and buy a pregnancy pillow. I didn't have one last time with Sophia and it was miserable. I sleep much better with it now. I'm extremely tired during the day since it's still early in the first trimester. It's getting harder and harder not taking a nap during the day.
Best moment this week: Everyday has been great b/c I've been so busy with Sophia but I'm really looking forward to my first Dr's appt next week!
Movement: Way too early for now
Food cravings: Seafood and pita chips & dip

Gender: We won't find out for quite a bit longer
Labor Signs: absolutely not thank you very much

Belly Button in or out? Still in, never popped with Sophia
Wedding rings on or off? on for now, but I don't think they will last too much longer. I had to take them off around 16 weeks with Sophia.
What I miss: Coffee, diet coke, and beer
What I am looking forward to: getting a baby bump, feeling the little bean move, and hearing the heartbeat for the first time.
Weekly Wisdom: I have learned my lesson from last time, I barely exercised at all with Sophia. I won't be doing that this time. I'm very proud to say that ever since we started trying to conceive, I've been walking about 2 miles almost everyday. I'm going to try my best to keep it up!
Milestones: None yet, I'm just waiting to hear the hb and for this morning sickness to be over!!

Yay, I am so excited that I get to experience being pregnant again. I can't wait to share the news with everyone :)

Well we have an announcement...

Lino baby #2 is on the way :) I am currently a little over 10 weeks pregnant and saw our little bean for the first time last Thursday. We are so excited. Sophia is going to be a big sister!! This is part of the reason I haven't blogged in awhile. I have just had no energy whatsoever.

This pregnancy has definetely been a lot different than Sophia's. With Sophia, I had almost zero morning sickness. Well with this little bambino, I have been sick all day, every day since about 5 weeks. Nothing seems to help and I have to eat almost every hour just so I don't throw up. I am super tired and usually in bed and asleep by 9 pm. I'm so ready to be out of the 1st trimester already. It is killing me. Taking care of Sophia during the day by myself is getting harder and harder. Hopefully it will pass soon.

Rudy and I decided that we are going to let this baby's gender be a suprise. We found out with Sophia, but I really want to wait this time. I think the suprise and all the excitement leading up to the birth will be so exciting. I just hope I can hold out :)
