Baby Dew #2: 15 Weeks

15 weeks and I feel great! Ok, well, most of the time.  If you are pregnant or have ever been pregnant you know that they say the 2nd trimester is the "honeymoon trimester" because you typically have more energy than you did the first trimester and you aren't big and uncomfortable like you are in the third.  Besides feeling really tired today, I think it's true.

This week/weekend has been the greatest.  From our night out as a family of three {those days are numbered}, to finding out the gender of our sweet new addition, to sharing our excitement with our families, it really has been one for the memory books.

We are thrilled that we are having a boy, a baby brother.  I honestly had no idea what to expect when we walked in for that ultrasound but as soon as the tech said, "do you know what it is?" I got all anxious and started looking {even though I had no idea what I was looking at or for} and then she said "IT'S A BOY!" and it was nothing short of amazing.  Jimmy teared up, Kendall yelled "awe my baby brother!" and I just couldn't quit smiling.  I hope I never forget that moment.  Our families are totally excited to be welcoming a boy and just when I thought no one could be more spoiled than Kendall, I have a feeling this boy will never want for a thing either.

We thought we had a name picked out but now that we "know" it's different.  We have it narrowed down to 3 names, one being a family name so I'm sure it'll win, and as soon as we know I'll be sharing it.  It's actually kind of fun to still be deciding.  We knew before Kendall was even conceived what her name would be so I kind of like taking it slow this time.

The night before we had our ultrasound I was saying a prayer to God, asking him to give me a sign that this baby was healthy {I had fallen down the stairs last weekend and was worried, a little} and I swear as soon as I was done I felt a little flutter.  Amazing.  I forgot how good those little bubbles feel.  I've felt them a few times since and I can't wait till they're a regular occurrence every day.

Due to the fall, my back has been extra achy, more so than it was.  My pain was in my lower back and now it's totally in my tailbone.  It's been slowly getting better and it's actually taken my focus off the lower back pain so hopefully it all kicks the bucket soon.

I had been super congested early on in this pregnancy which I know is a common symptom but lately it's been worse.  My nose is stuffy but not runny, it's been bloody a couple of times and it's just super annoying. I read my app update this week and looks like it's not going anywhere any time soon.  So, that's awesome.

This pregnancy has been nothing short of amazing thus far.  I do miss my wine here and there but otherwise I have no complaints.  I had a great pregnancy with Kendall too so maybe I am just meant to do this baby thing!

  1. A boy! Congrats! My daughter turns 3 in August and our second baby/first boy is due in May. People keep saying we're "lucky" because we'll have a boy and a girl already but I feel lucky just having two healthy babies:-) Have fun shopping! It's definitely different shopping for boys!

  4. Congrats on the news of a baby BOY! I have a boy and 2 girls and boys are definately different than girls.. but all in a good way! Your husband will love all the "guy" stuff he will get into as he grows up too! Have you ever tried a Chiropractor for your back? I had really bad siatica with all of my pregnancies and found that a regular visit to my Chiropractor really did help. Hope your back feels better soon!

  5. I am constantly, constantly blowing my nose. It's such a weird thing. I'm 29 weeks now, and just starting to see the end of the "honeymoon" trimester. Sigh. It was fun while it lasted. Enjoy, you look great! :) Also, love the new blog design!

  19. I used to have to go to Sam's Club to buy big bulk diapers but now I can have them sent right to my home for free! Also the price is great because I get more for my money. At Sam's I could only buy a 144 pack of diapers for the same price and now I can get 180 diapers online. Trust me you can't go wrong with honest diapers!
