Ramblings of baby # 2

1.24.11:  So we found out on New Year's Day we were expecting #2.    2 under 2 in 16 months to be exact. We can do it, both our mom's have 2 kids that are only 16 months apart: Rob and I are 16 months to the day and Kevin and Eric are only 16 months.   Next up us!
I sure did go into overdrive.  Ordered Jack his shirt, we told our parents and siblings first. (My friend K& L knew too, then I shared with my bbms). I am still waiting until after the ultrasound 2/1 to tell parents and then friends around 13 weeks.  Truthfully I am more worried about hands then anything else.  I know we can deal with anything but you can't help but worry.  I know my Dr will understand when I request careful u/s of the limbs and 3D and 4D when baby is big enough to soothe our nerves  throughout the pregnancy.  As per calculators we are due on 9/10/11 (I love these numbers) but if I go late to the 14th then they would really be 16months to the day apart just like my brother and I.  Those who know me, secrets are hard to keep.  So daily I struggle to not tell people.

2.3.11:  You will be here sooner than we though!  End of August to be exact (15.5 months apart).  You measured 9 weeks on 2/1, since I wasn't sure when my cycle was we weren't 100%.  We will find out if you are a boy or girl in late April, I can't wait!  I am weighing in at 140 lbs, lets see how much I gain over the next 7 months.   Since Jack started crawling yesterday I hope his moving keeps me going and the weight down.  We can't wait to share the good news with everyone.

2.18.11   11.5 weeks now.  Belly measurement at 10 weeks was 33 inches.  Still fitting in my size 6 American Eagle Jeans and all my other clothes, which I hope lasts as long as possible. I have mostly summer maternity clothes from Jack so warm weather get here.  The morning sickness feeling is still constant and I have been sleeping a lot, naps and going to bed at 10pm on work nights.  I am getting ready to tell everyone after our appointment on the 28th at the doctors.  T-Shirt for Jack is ready to be wore again (one we used to tell our parents are siblings).  Plus I will make my next 2 appointments, for 16 weeks and 20 weeks- the gender one!  We need to come up with another boy name, our girl name is set from last time.

2.28.11 Ultrasound went great, met the Dr who would be doing them when we go to Brewster office, we did most of them in Mt. Kisco last time so we only know their Ultrasound Dr.

3.1.11  Follow up with my Ob Dr. (I couldn't get appointments on the same day).  I have gained 0lbs in 13 weeks actually lost 1(woohoo).  Partly because I am sick almost every night and have a hard time eating more then a few bites.   She said it should go away in a few weeks, my next appointment is at 16 weeks on 3/22  I can't believe this pregnancy is flying by so quickly but with Jack keeping us busy and work, the weeks fly.

3.13.11  Jack is keeping up busy with his nonstop crawling, standing, and cruising around everything.  I am exhausted at end of work day, and the morning sickness (at night) continues to kick my butt.  I am looking forward to spring break in late April to catch up on sleep and go away for 3 nights to Boston with Jack and Tim and sightsee go to aquariums, museums and shop.  We should know the gender before we go away also.  Still stuck on a boy name, I have one I love but Tim doesn't like it so much, I dislike his choices.  Didn't we just do all this a year ago?

Week 6 Favorites

Totally skipped week 5. Bad blogger but I am trying to keep up so I will jump right to week 6.  Work, Jack, school and awful morning sickness (at night) has been kicking my butt and putting me to bed before 10, if not earlier at night.

  • Favorite blog (and not your own)
  • Favorite sport (can be one you play or watch)
  • Favorite memory (past or present)

-Favorite Blog-  I read many friends blogs but my coupon/money saving blogs are my favorite. Babycheapskate is one that I check daily and rely on to help me spend little money on the items I need to buy for Jack.  


-Favorite Sport-  We watching basically no sports in my house.  Those turned on are usually BMX, snowboarding, rally racing and in a bluemoon hockey.  My sport other than Snowboarding would be running.  I ran cross country, indoor and outdoor track in high school.  I went to states for XC my freshman year for Varsity.  I also ran in the NYC Marathon HS race which was invite only for 2 years, it was only the last 2.239879476874659874 (kid you not the shirt says 2.2################# lol)  and crossed the official finish line.  Hold records for the a course I ran in 7th grade also.  I quit though to take up snowboarding, and met Tim.  Great trade off IMO.


-Favorite Memory-  Well having Jack was unforgettable, my wedding too.  I think traveling though always hold a place in your memories.  After my wedding in 2006, Tim left for a deployment overseas, I had just gone back to school after taking that Spring semester off and my school as offering a study abroad program for winter break. (anything longer would have been impossible since I had 2 dogs and a cat and lived in apartment alone)  So my friend Amy and I signed up to go to CHINA!  We would study for 2.5 weeks at a university and explore the local area as well as spend the weekends in Shanghai and Beijing.  Well the studying part was out for me, I slept in every morning for being up so long the night before.  I learned 0 Chinese.  I did go tot he fun classes in the afternoon after lunch.  We explored bars, shops and terrain.  I tried food and it was major fail, I like rice and the basics.  So many fun jokes, interesting situations and laughs went out that I will never forget.
