Hi friends. Even though I forgot to take a belly shot this week I thought I’d still share with you what has been going on since entering the 2nd trimester.

Size of the baby: Lemon – about 3 1/2 inches long!

Total Weight Gain: About 2-3 pounds

Gender: We will be finding out on August 21st! I can’t wait!

Maternity Clothes: I really need to get myself some new pants. I tried to find a pair of maternity shorts for the summer but my bump is so small and I’m already petite to begin with so they were all too big on me. I’m at a loss at what to wear because everything is getting too tight but I’m worried I’m not going to be able to find maternity clothes that fit me yet!

Sleep: Oh gosh, sleep. Sleep is either a hit or miss for me. I always wake up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom and sometimes I can’t go back to sleep for another hour or two. Those days are always the worst but other than that it’s been okay. I’m adjusting to sleeping on my sides and back, which is not fun.

Missing: Hmm I don’t really drink to begin with so I’m definitely not missing alcohol or anything. I do miss being able to stomach coffee as much as I used to. I’m just not in the mood for it like I used to be. It actually hurts my stomach a lot of the time now too. Womp Womp. Actually the one thing I really do miss is being able to eat my meat red. I love burgers and steaks medium-rare so I’m really missing that lately.

Craving: I’m going to have to start writing these down. I’d say this week I craved chips with queso a lot.

Symptoms: Peeing a lot lol. A growing appetite. Lower back pain when laying on my back. Upset stomach sometimes.

Exercise: I haven’t mentioned this on the blog yet but we finally moved into our new apartment so I’ve been keeping very busy unpacking everything so it’s been like a workout every day. After I’m done unpacking I’m planning on starting to do some YouTube prenatal workouts like prenatal yoga or something like that.

Tommy is: Getting more and more excited about the baby as time goes on.

Looking Forward To: Our beach vacation/babymoon next month and finding out the gender!!

Best Moments: Definitely moving into our new apartment and visiting my cousin and his kids in Maryland. His kids are 7 and 4 and they made both Tommy and I even more excited for the baby. It was so fun playing with them all weekend.

    So sorry you’re experiencing pregnancy insomnia too! In my first trimester I would regularly wake to use the bathroom and then not be able to sleep for an hour or more. It’s not fun. I hope it passes for you soon, mine has let up a little, but we’ll see if that holds! Have you tried ThredUp or Swap for maternity clothes? They’re both online thrift stores and I’ve found maternity clothes there. I’m not as petite as I was in high school, but they may have more options. I only know of two stores that actually sell maternity clothing in store.

    • I haven’t tried ThredUp or Swap but I definitely should look into it because I’m quickly running out of things to wear more and more! Thanks for the suggestion!!

        Honestly, they are so worth it! The prices are phenomenal! I just found two pairs of maternity shorts for $11-12 each, they’re a minimum of $20 (usually $30) in stores around here.
