If you follow me on Instagram (follow by clicking here @FindingSilverLinings), then you already know about our news! Yup, I’ve got a bun in the oven! Our second baby is due April 4th, 2015. We are so excited and I’m so happy to share it with you guys.
Italian pregnancy announcement: Yup, I’m preggo
Because I’m eating for two haha 😛
How I’m feeling: So far, the first trimester was great! No morning sickness at all (which is a relief because I was so so sick when I was pregnant with Max). I put on more weight thus far compared to last pregnancy, but I was 8lbs lighter to start off this time around so I’m hoping it will all even out. I’ve been able to escape to the gym every Saturday and Sunday, so I am getting some exercise in, plus the weather is still really nice in CT so taking Max for walks is great too. My sciatica has started making an appearance in the past couple of weeks. I have tried to combat it by taking pre-natal yoga.
It’s always nice to get some VIP love. A big thanks to Babies R Us for the sweet parking space and yummy preggie pop drops.
How I found out: I was eating a salad from my favorite spot and it tasted like cigarette ashes. Pregnancy makes the body do weird things. Taste buds especially! I knew something was up when this happened. I took a test immediately. I had a test laying around because I actually thought I was pregnant the month before so I bought a multipack. Mr. FSL was mowing the lawn at the time, so I called Max into the bathroom and told him he was going to be a big brother. I called my husband inside and Max handed him the positive test 🙂
Is Cray Cray back?: Thankfully no (click here to hear about her). I feel like I’m just regular old Mindy.
Cravings and food aversions: This baby wants fat. I craved fried chicken for about two months straight. I want bacon on everything and butter is my new friend. I craved vinegar with Max, so lots of salads and healthy stuff. Not this time. I am hoping to crave lettuce or something healthy-ish soon, until then, send cookies. Or tubs of Nutella.
What’s different from last time around: Besides the fat kid cravings and no morning sickness, it’s going by quicker and thankfully easier. My sciatica is worse this time. I am so preoccupied with a toddler running around, I don’t have time to think only pregnant thoughts lol! I’m in grad school too so I feel a little overwhelmed and distracted.
I am now in week 15 and the bump is starting to pop a little.
I tried to pull my pants on by pulling the belt loops. Pants can only take so much I guess lol!
Here’s our latest ultrasound pic of our newest nugget…
Soooo that’s what’s up with me. Any preggos out there? What week are you in? How are you feeling? Did you rip your pants too?
