As of a week and a half ago I have two girls. It’s pretty amazing. 

I’ll be slowly coming back to tumblr over the next few weeks. I say slowly because I had a repeat c-section and can’t work out for four more weeks and I’m currently building my fairly non-existent milk supply so dieting is off the table. 

Lucky for me I was very mindful this pregnancy and started it at 173.3, got up to 190, and as of yesterday I weighed 169.3.  I lost weight while pregnant. I think growing an almost nine pound baby helped. 

So I’m back. Just slowly. :)

9 weeks & 4 days left

I have 9 weeks and 4 days left, if not less until baby girl #2 gets here. I am so excited.  I had Squishy almost four weeks early so I’m not counting on making it until my c-section date.

I cannot wait to exercise again. I’m only four pounds over pre pregnancy weight but I’m ready to go back to working out.

I’m looking forward to running and starting to lift heavier. I’m looking forward to not getting round ligament pains everytime I walk. I’m looking forward towards blogging again. I’m looking forward to getting a good nights sleep because I can sleep on my belly again. Most of all I’m looking forward to snuggling two little ones instead of one.

It’s a….

GIRL!!

Sorry I’ve been MIA lovelies.  We were all sick for Thanksgiving and then life has just been insanely hectic and I’ve been exhausted.  My belly is already so much bigger than it was with Squishy and it’s a lot lower (I blame my c-section).  Plus our bed needs to be replaced so I’m not sleeping great. 

BUT, we had our ultrasound last week and we’re having another little girl!  I’m so excited to give Squishy a sister and I love, love that they’ll be less than a year apart!  I had to share with tumblr because we’re actually keeping it a secret from our family and friends.  Just because we want to have something special for the three of us for now.  It’s also hilarious because everyone is so sure that we’re having a boy.  Nope, not this time.  Maybe next time.

She’s also measuring big already and her head is a full week ahead.  Squishy has a big noggin too so I guess that’s just how we make them.  She’s also already head down but it doesn’t really matter as I’ll be having another c-section anyway. 

Weight gain has been good so far as well.  I’m still below pre-pregnancy weight and have only gained back about four pounds of what I lost early on.  As long as I gain less than a pound a week for the remaining time I should walk out of the hospital at the same weight I was when I got pregnant.  A definite plus.

Only other news is that if anyone wants to place a Scentsy order, either through me or someone else, today is the last day I’d recommend doing it.  Orders should make it in time for Christmas if ordered today but I can’t guarantee anything due to the craziness of UPS these last few weeks.

It’s hubby and my third anniversary. Actually it’s our 7th and 5th too.  We met Halloween 2006 (I was a 50’s housewife and he was a soldier).  We started dating November 1st 2008. We were married today in 2010. 
Now we have one and an almost kid, 3 dogs, 1 cat, 11 chickens, and 4 fish. Plus our own home. I’m a stay at home mama (largely) and he recently got a job with a very well known company that pays more than we could ever hope for. Yup, feeling very blessed. 
Pictures from wedding, the day after Squishy was born,  and last weeks trip to Disneyland.

This would be my 17 month old Squishy!  I love the pure toddler glee.  Melts my heart.  Can’t wait until there are two goobers running around.

14 weeks and 4 days with baby burrito today. 
Had a minor scare yesterday with a lovely trip to the ER but thankfully it was nothing. See with Squishy I started leaking amniotic fluid at 36 weeks. It wasn’t much though so I waited three days before going in. By then I was leaking so long that they had to induce because the risk of infection was high. 
Yesterday I felt like I was leaking. The same little bit as with Squishy. So I decided better safe than sorry. Thankfully no leaking though and a lovely heartbeat. 
I have only 24 weeks to go based on when they’ll schedule a repeat c-section.  Yay!   
In other news I have my first appointment with the actual doc tomorrow and I’m ready to get yelled at. I’ve been continuing to lose weight and am down 6.4 pounds at this point. The weightloss is very much not intentional and I am eating. It just keeps falling off. We shall see.

Baby burrito is looking great!  I was a little nervous going into the ultrasound today as I’ve now lost 5 pounds and I still haven’t stopped losing so I was a bit worried that he/she would be a little small. NOPE! Measuring three days ahead just like I did with Squishy. 
Apparently my body just wants to make sure I don’t gain much. I’ll take it  27 weeks to go.

Did you have a period before your missed period? It sounds confusing but what I mean is you conceived, had a period, and then had your missed period. I’m freaking out because I just ended my first period since the last time I had sex and I’ve been throwing up every night for the past week. I just…

I am kind of in the same boat. I had a period and then my next one came like 20 days later and it wasn’t like a period, really light no cramps, Although I have thought I was pregnant since before the first period, my boobs were really sore, I started throwing up sweet tea which is my favorite drink, I can barely sleep at night, etc. I have a lot of the symptoms but I have taken pregnancy tests and got both answers. I got a negative, a positive, and then a negative. 

I have to go to the doctor and have a blood test done tomorrow because the pee tests are inconclusive.

All I can say is go to the doctor. The best way is to have them diagnose it. I have no faith in home pregnancy tests.

I’ve taken 3 tests and 2 came up positive and one came up negative, but that was a few months ago. So I know it was the tests being faulty.

This time, I’m not so sure. I’m throwing up like crazy every night around the same time and my stomach feels like someone’s grabbing and twisting it.

I would love to just go to the doctor but I don’t have insurance. :/

Do you have any planned parenthoods or a county health clinic? I believe pregnancy tests are free at most establishments like that. I had to wait until I got enroll in TriCare that’s why I am going in tomorrow.

There’s a health clinic, but it’s $15 for a test. Not a blood test, just a pee stick.
I’m probably just going to have to pay out of pocket. It’s gonna be a lot for a blood test though..

You can get pregnancy tests for less than that a Walgreen’s/CVS/Walmart type place. I would talk to the health clinic. They usually have programs for people who are in certain income brackets that help offset the cost. It looks like they are about $75-$100 for a blood test.

I’ll give it another week or so and I’m I’m still feeling sickish, I’ll go get a blood test. I just really don’t want to worry Sean. He’s got so much going on right now already

Yeah. Make sure it’s not just a bug.

Not to butt in but if that period was light it could have been implantation bleeding.

Some, not all, women have implantation bleeding that occurs as the egg nuzzles into the uterine lining. It’s typically lighter than a regular period though. :)

Goodbye purple turned pink hair. I hope to see you again when baby burrito emerges. In the meantime back to easy to upkeep brown. As close to my natural shade as I could get. 
Got ballsy and cut/dyed it myself. It’ll need a touch up in a week or so because some pink is shining through but it did the same thing last time I was pregnant when I had it done at the salon. My hair apparently really wants to be pink or purple. Haircut is passable. Not fantastic but better than it was and it’ll grow. :)

Preach it NPH. Squishy loves her babies but she also loves to play with trucks while making car sounds and she loves balls and kicking and throwing them.
