9 Weeks With Baby #2



How far along? 9 weeks 3 days

How big is baby? The size of a wild strawberry

Total weight gain/loss: I’m so far I’ve gained about 2 lbs which is a lot less than last time.

Maternity clothes? I actually did buy a few things the other day. We were at Ross and they always have cheap maternity staples there so I decided to take a look. I ended up getting a pair of maternity jeans, a plain black tee, a blouse and a cardigan. I’m not wearing any maternity in this picture, though.

Stretch marks? Nope!

Sleep: once bedtime comes I’m seriously ready to sleep. I swear I could sleep all day if I didn’t have a toddler that needed to be cared for haha

Best moment this week: getting settled in our new home…finally!

Movement: Nope!

Food cravings: Toasty sandwiches and anything sour like salt and vinegar chips.

Anything making you queasy or sick:

Symptoms: thirst, frequent peeing, stuffy nose, sleepy, sore boobs. But I’ve started to get my energy back, I don’t feel very sick anymore and I don’t have anymore constipation!

Have you started to show yet: Yes!

Leakage: lol no. I hate this question.

Gender prediction: we are thinking boy.

Labor Signs: Nope.

Belly Button in or out? In.

Wedding rings on or off? On and still loose.

Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy most of the time. I do get moody if I’m really hungry or I can’t get comfortable.

Weekly Wisdom: I know that I am kind of prone to stretch marks because last pregnancy I got them on my boobs and hips, but I also didn’t think about moisturizing those places much. So this time I got Palmer’s coco butter all over lotion along with my belly concentrate. Hopefully that will help because I used it on my belly last time and got no stretch marks.

Milestones: baby’s facial features and ears are forming 😊


About jaymeepatterson

I started life with the belief that, in today's times, a woman must have a big-time career, be completely independent, and, essentially, be the sum of "I am woman, hear me roar." As I grew up the common dream of "prince charming" started worming its way into my brain. One day, in college, while I was planning the next move on my road toward a nursing career I realized something odd. I was in love. Soon after I was engaged and then married. Shortly into my marriage I realized two things. 1. I was not happy with what I was working toward. 2. Why can't the idea of an independent, chic, housewife exist? So, I created it! Well, maybe not, but I did start living it. As I was living this dream life a genius thought came to mind. Why not share this idea with the public? Share this notion of a chic woman who runs her home...from home! So here it is. Enjoy, ladies!
