Baby Bump Update - 2nd Edition

I'm back with another baby bump update, you can see the first one here.  Since my last update, I've been to the doctor for a checkup, gotten sick with some sort of yucky cold and officially had to go shopping for clothes.  Here are a few more updates:

Dr. Update: 
I went to the doctor about a week ago and all is well.  I've gained a total of 4 pounds and the baby's heart rate is going strong.  That's about it.  They really dont take alot of time for chit chat.   

I'm still not wearing the maternity pants, they just fall down and are annoying.  So, I'm still wearing my regular pants and just looping them together with rubber bands.  I went shopping and got a few shirts.  I'm not loving maternity clothes, I think they're not that cute.  So, I'm trying to find 'regular' clothes that are long enough to fit.  I guess once I get super big, I'll have to switch to maternity clothes full time.  Oh boy!

Last time I posted week 13 and 15 pic (we skipped week 14) so here are the next few weeks. Some of our pictures are not turning out as model-esk as I'd like, but here they are none the less.

Week 16

Week 17

Week 18

I'm doing my best to eat healthy.  To be honest, I'm really just craving sweets but I'm trying to stay away as much as possible.  Although, I did buy a gallon of ice cream the other day.  I'm also trying to bring healthy snacks with me to work. It's harder to eat healthy on the weekends though.

I'm feeling the baby move more now although I wouldn't say it's regular.  It still not really like a kick or a punch or anything, just a rolling around type of motion.  It still surprises me when it happens though.

Mood Swings:
I've gotten confirmation from my hubby that my mood swings are better.  I'm not feeling very moody but I thought I'd ask him just in case.  :)
We're going to the doctor in a few weeks to find out what we're having.  We're so excited!  I'm ready to know if our baby is a boy or girl, it seems like we'll be able to make more decisions once we know what it is.  You know. . . like a name, decor, registry items, etc.  We're very excited to find out.  :)


  1. You are the cutest little prego lady! Love the belly pics! Can't wait to know the its a little bambino or bambina! :)

  2. Thanks! I'll definitely post when we find out! :)

  3. Too Cute!! You are looking great!

  4. Yeah so excited for you guys! I made it most of my pregnancy wearing a belly band instead of maternity pants - that was totally the way to go. Plus if you buy normal clothes you can wear them afterwards as well. Love the update!
