22 weeks

* This is getting out of control it's either what I wear or I need to slow down on the food.  Can't wait until this is over!

Nothing great happened this week just a couple of freak outs. My iPhone died for 4 days and I lost everything. We lost the house wanted in Scotch plains & Josh seems like he is going to nearly have a breakdown. Everything with the baby looks good so far.

21 weeks it's a girl!!

** Can I look anymore horrible?? Josh is already getting sick of taking these pictures.  Sounds hard 1 picture a week he must be exausted.

It's a girl!!! We are really happy Londyn is getting a sister. I knew all along it was a girl I guess it's women intuition. We are having a hard time agreeing on a name. Last time we loved Londyn and both agreed it seemed so much easier. I'm sure in the next 4 months we will have something. I hope!

How far along? 21   weeks

Total weight gain: 141 looks like I'm gaining 2 pounds a month which I don't think is that bad
Maternity clothes? I just ordered a shirt waiting for it to arrive in the mail. It's hard to take these pictures with different outfits. 
Sleeping: waking up in the middle of the night to pee
Best moment this week: finding out we are having another girl
Miss Anything? Nothing this week
Movement: just a little bit
Food cravings: not really that hungry lately
Anything making you queasy or sick:  No

20 weeks!!!! Halfway there!!!!

* The best part of this picture is how Londyn is so cute!!! She messed up what I wrote which was 1/2 halfway there!!!

Half way there!!!!! I can't believe how much faster the second time around goes. I'm 5 months already wow 20 weeks. I'm feeling good which is surprising because I did know I hate being pregnant. 4 more weeks until I get tested for gestational diabetes which I think I have because my head has been killing me, same symptoms as last time. This week I've been pretty stressed out. We are very close to selling our house and just thinking of it stresses me out. Then I have days imagining us in a different place starting new and I think we'll be really happy.  I went shopping for Londyn 2nd birthday this past weekend & had so much fun doing it. I really hope we will be around in our house  in 1 month to celebrate. Either way I'll just move it to Veronica's & not stress over something I can't change. 

How far along? 20!!   weeks
Size of baby: 6 1/2 inches banana 
Weight of baby: 10 1/2 ounces 
Baby progress: swallowing now.  Hope tastes good little one 
Total weight gain: I'll find out next week I don't feel much bigger
Maternity clothes? I'm in need of some summer clothes. I don't feel like spending money but I don't think I have a choice. I went into motherhood this past weekend & everything looked old farty. I'm pregnant not a old looking housewife. 
Sleeping: sure 
Best moment this week: turning 20 weeks
Miss Anything? Booze again

19 weeks

* well here we go again wearing black you can't see much.  BUT I am huge that's all you need to know --- Londyn thinks so too

This week I was in so much pain.  I'm back on the meds to try and get rid of this bacteria.  I thought my doctor said she can't keep pumping me with meds & then she said it was ok.  My stomach feels like there is a fire in it.  Not to be gross but it also gives me the runs.  Dr Brown called and said my magnesium was normal and my potassium was normal.  Perfect! So I've just been not feeling good and tired.
