Mommy Monday {Baby #2 Edition}

Well, here I am again. I've really been slacking on my blogging. And I really have no excuses. I just haven't felt inspired by anything recently, but now... we are expecting baby #2! Plus, one of my New Year's Resolutions is to blog more. I really feel like blogging is a good outlet for me. It's helped me through some of the darkest times.

So, here's to Mommy Monday {Baby #2 Edition} and more frequent blog posts!

How far along?  13 weeks, 4 days.. Hello, Second Trimester!
Total weight gain/measurements: I'm up 3 lbs so far, but I really haven't been paying too close attention to the scale {considering that is still currently packed in our basement}. 
Maternity clothes: Not yet, however this entire last week I have spent in stretchy pants and sweatshirts {ahh the gloriousness of Christmas break}. We shall see how my work clothes fit me tomorrow!
Stretch marks: None to report and hoping to keep it that way. I'm lathering my belly in Burt's Bee's Mama Bee. I'm attempting to do the same things I did with Lennon because I only got stretch marks on my bum with her. 
Sleep: This last week has been extremely refreshing in the sleep department. I've been doing pretty well as far as sleep goes, but my energy level definitely starts to depreciate in the afternoon. 
Exercise: I have been trying to be much more active this pregnancy. I just don't have enough energy to do anything when I get home during the week, but on the weekends I've been continuing to do my Beachbody On Demand. It's so convenient to just have it on my TV. I don't even have to leave my house and I just do it while Lennon is napping. It's perfect! 
Best moment this week: Being on Christmas break and being able to spend an entire week with Lennon. I miss spending my days with her. 
Miss anything? Feeling normal. This first trimester has been HORRIBLE. ALL. DAY. EVERY. DAY. Nausea. It has not let up and I am still get bouts of it some days. 
Movement: No baby movements yet, although I cannot wait to start feeling her kick!
Food cravings: These have been very similar to my first pregnancy. Orange Juice, Cuties, Strawberries, Granny Smith Apples, QDoba, Lemon Ice, Tomatoes with Salt {I literally ate a plate with four of them yesterday}. 
Anything making you queasy or sick? I really haven't been doing well with leftovers, which I usually am all about. I eat something for one meal and just can't seem to want to eat it again. 
Gender: Girl #2!
Labor signs: No and let's keep it that way!
Belly button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or moody most of the time: I seem to be pretty happy for the most part. However, if I'm not feeling well I can be pretty moody. 
Looking forward to: The weekend. Going back to work after a break is just a bummer. 

Until next time!
