Pregnancy Update: WEEK 20 VLOG

20weekpregnancyupdate

I was gonna go on about how I had to start eating my daughter’s fruit pouches that has vegetables in them in the hopes of getting more vegetables in my diet (the baby for at this time doesn’t like vegetables at all).

However, the biggest thing that happened in the past 4 weeks is my ultrasound and finally finding out the gender of our second baby!

And because Andrew was not able to come to the ultrasound appointment with us, I decided to surprise him by making cupcakes with either a blue or pink icing in the middle to indicate the gender of the baby.

Pregnancy Update: WEEK 16

16weekpregnancyupdate

By the time you read this, I will be a good 10 weeks ahead.

WEEK 14: A few things:

  • I’m still into the fruits I mentioned in my last pregnancy update.
  • I have been drinking a lot of lemon water (hot/cold) all of a sudden.
  • I started disliking pickles from work. I used to eat them a lot during the beginning of this pregnancy, now I can’t stand them.

August 22: We had a doctor’s appointment today with Dr. Payton. She was the same doctor who helped delivered Taylor 3 years ago. It was a great experience to have Taylor there because she got to hear the baby’s heartbeat. She looked at me and said “Mommy, the baby’s talking”. 🙂

I have also shopped for my growing bump. I bought a pair of yoga pants to wear at work for when I can’t fit in my work pants anymore. I might need to purchase another pair because these Walmart yoga pants are comfy. I will also be ordering a Bella Band tomorrow. My jeans still fit, I just can’t button them anymore. It has gotten uncomfortable to suck my belly in to keep my pants from bursting open. LOL.

WEEK 16: I have come to the conclusion that my cravings at the moment are all over the place. My food aversions, however, are not.

Pregnancy Update: WEEK 12

12weekpregnancyupdate

By the time you read this, I will be a good 10 weeks ahead.

I was told I have been incredibly irritated the past few weeks. The littlest of things upset me and this has caused a bit of an alarm. I noticed this too—I usually have more patience with Taylor, but the past few days was just crazy.

Eating healthy has been a struggle as well. The good thing though is my craving for sweets gets satisfied with certain fruits I like.

Current roof cravings: cheese sandwich with pickles; pineapples; cantaloupes; mangoes; fuji apples; greek salad (only lettuce, feta cheese, olives, and dressing); rice; spam.

Current food aversions: caesar salad and vegetables. Haha!

Pregnancy Update: WEEK 8

8weekpregnancyupdate

By the time you read this, I will be a good 10 weeks ahead.

I have restored to regularly having to eat oatmeal for breakfast. I am terribly constipated it’s uncomfortable. I also bought a small jug of prune juice. It was suggested I dilute it with water to soften the effects of it. Pretty good suggestion given I haven’t tried prunes or prune juice before.

Morning  sickness has been manageable, thank goodness. Most times I needed to force myself to eat a bit because of how physically taxing my job is, plus I go home to a 3 year old. I need energy regardless of how little I could get.

Current food cravings: Salty and sweet, chocolates, and rice with soy.
