Baby Sunshine #2

I'm pregnant with baby number two! This news is both exciting and utterly terrifying. For awhile there I was content with having just the one. However, there were times I felt so guilty that Joaquin wouldn't have a sibling to grow up with. I am very close to my brother and couldn't imagine my life without him.... if you would've asked me 20 years ago I would've said I hated him but I think that's normal of a sister brother relationship, right? Nonetheless, Hubby convinced me to have another so here I am, 4 months pregnant with an already round and obvious baby bump.

How far along: 19 weeksGender: Don't know and won't be finding out....again
Weight gain: Not sure yet but at the end of my first trimester, doc said I lost one pound. Whoo hoo!
Maternity clothes: Yes and yes! I am all about the Maternity clothes. I LOVE my Jessica Simpson jeans at the moment. 
Sleep: Sleep is finally improving a tad. For weeks, I woke up around 3 in the morning for no reason at all. I didn't have to pee, I didn't feel a kick, nothing! I was just wide away for a while. Annoying. 
Best moment this month: Going to my big ultrasound to see the baby. 
Worst moment this month: Going to my big ultrasound to see the baby but baby wasn't cooperating and they couldn't take the right pictures. ::le sigh:: On the bright side, I might have to go back to try again which means I get to see baby again!
Miss anything: Sushi
Movement: Finally started feeling movement this week and it's been amazing. I love feeling the flutters and little love kicks. 
Cravings: Onion rings, oranges, cheeseburgers. 
Looking forward to: Getting a good picture of baby.

My next post will be about my concerns with Baby #2 on the way. I have a lot of anxiety about postpartum depression and reliving the hard times I had the first time around. See you next time, friends!


  1. Yay!!! Congratulations! I have been having the exact same thoughts as you had. We had always just planned on one, but lately I've had a bit of an itch for another and I wonder if I'm doing the right thing by Everdeen if she is an only child...I know whatever we decide will be the right decision, but sometimes my brain gets so confused! haha! I'm so very happy for you and this new adventure!

  2. Yay for baby #2 update! I too have been waking up at 3am for no reason... Le sigh...

  3. Congratulations on your second baby. You are glowing already!


I want to know what you really I do! Leave a comment, question, or just a hello. It'll make me SMILE!
