Differences: 1st and 2nd pregnancies ♥

Just wanted to share this cute and HILARIOUSLY accurate depiction of the differences between your first and second pregnancy! Too funny not to share! I shared the link to the original post if you want it!

10.  First Pregnancy:  You devour every single weekly pregnancy milestone update from and know exactly what kind of fruit/vegetable your baby currently resembles.
Second Pregnancy:  “How far along am I?  Um, let me see…maybe somewhere in the first trimester?  Wait, no, third.  I think.”

9.  First Pregnancy:  You diligently avoid all caffeine, alcohol, sushi and other supposed pregnancy no-nos.
Second Pregnancy:  “Make it a DOUBLE ESPRESSO.  And bring it up to the bathroom where I’m going to be snorting aspirin in a steaming hot bath.  Thanks!”

8.  First Pregnancy:  “Yay!  I’m starting to show!”
Second Pregnancy:  “Oh, God.  I’m starting to show.  AND I’M ONLY ONE WEEK PREGNANT.”

7.  First Pregnancy: You play French folk music and Learn Japanese CDs before going to sleep in hopes of giving birth to a multilingual genius with an IQ of 150.
Second Pregnancy:  Screw the folk music.  Nothing wrong with having a child of mediocre intelligence!  Because, let’s face it, you want to go to sleep as soon as you can when you already have a child with another on the way.

6.  First Pregnancy:  You feel the baby kick around 20 weeks.
Second Pregnancy:  You feel the baby kick around 12 weeks.  And why is that?  “Your muscles aren’t as strong the second time around, so you feel it more,” the OB says “helpfully.”  *SIGH*  A simple “you’re more in-tune with your body” would have sufficed, doc.

5.  First Pregnancy:  YOU:  Guess what?  I’m pregnant!  FRIENDS & FAMILY:  Yaaaaayyyy!  This is the best news EVER!
Second Pregnancy:  YOU:  Guess what?  I’m pregnant!  FRIENDS & FAMILY:  Huh. Was this planned?

4.  First Pregnancy:  You buy a ton of maternity clothes to show off that beautiful, blossoming bump.
Second Pregnancy:  It’s all about sweatpants.

3.  First Pregnancy:  You have outdone yourself with the nursery, which is beautiful enough to be displayed in the pages of House Beautiful.
Second Pregnancy:  You’re not even sure where you’re going to put the kid.  Put a blanket in a dresser drawer, perhaps?

2.  First Pregnancy:  You rub cocoa butter on your stomach every day to avoid stretch marks.
Second Pregnancy:  You quickly throw on your sweats to avoid looking at the stretch marks caused by your first pregnancy.

1.  First Pregnancy:  You and your baby are celebrated at a fun baby shower.
Second Pregnancy:  You are lucky if you have the time to take a hot shower.

Counting down the days♥

Hello all! I always do this, but once again, I got super busy and kind of (not completely) forgot about blogging for a whole minute! With all the stuff I've got going on, I am lucky to remember to put on pants before leaving the house ha. Here are the latest pictures of the BUMP♥
25 weeks 5 days ♥

26 weeks ♥

27 weeks 2 days ♥

31 weeks 5 days ♥

♥ Our 3D sonogram! We actually caught her smiling! ♥

Had a contraction scare a few weeks ago. Went into L&D and got them stopped (gave me Brethine to stop them) and we've been good so far. I am still having them, but these are just the Braxton Hicks. Work is getting harder and harder. On my feet for 8 hours a day is no joke when I've got a bun in the oven! C-section is scheduled for September 30th (47 more days!), which is coming up quick! Scheduled the baby shower for September 1st. SUPER excited about that one!

How far along: 33 weeks!

Symptoms: Heartburn, heartburn, heartburn! Sleep is definitely becoming more difficult. Exhaustion more than anything. Oh, and did I mention that pesky constipation? Sorry, TMI I know.

Weight gain: 22.8lbs so far.

Cravings: Still mostly sweets. As far as anything else, my appetite has basically left. I can't get motivated for anything!  

Cry this week: Nope.  

Upcoming appointments: OB appointment August 27th! We're going every two weeks now!

Kamree's thoughts: She asks everyday if her sister can come out yet, but when other people ask her, she tells them "hers still growing up in there!"
