{16 Weeks}

How Far Along: 16 weeks

How Big is Baby: An avocado. 4-5 inches, 3.5 ounces

Weight Gained: 1 lb

Maternity Clothes: Still half and half. I’m squeezing as much life out of my non-maternity leggings as possible… full belly panels are really pretty awful.

Sleep: To Matt’s dismay, I broke out the maternity body pillow this week. The good news is, he might actually get some of the covers back now that I’m not balling them up to shove between my knees.

Best Moments of the Week: Treasure hunting with Mum and finding two super cute maternity tops. Lucy’s haircut (she’s back to the short bob) with Mel. A last minute Twins game with Matt on Saturday. A super quick proofing session on Sunday, AND turning the client’s finished images around to her on the same afternoon!

Cravings: Still on a steak kick. Grapefruit. Asparagus. And Papa Murphy’s… which “might” have caused a hormonal Honey Bee Ice Cream-esque melt-down last night.

Aversions: Most meat. Pork, chicken, ground beef…

Labor signs: None.

Symptoms: BABY KICKS this morning!! That first definite “that was the baby moving” moment is still by far one the most amazing things in life!

I was really hopeful that this pregnancy would be different and that “morning” sickness would actually start to taper off at some point. Unfortunately I don’t think I’m that lucky based on the last couple of weeks.

What Do I Miss: Not feeling crummy + tired 24/7.

How I’m Feeling: See the above… nauseous, tired, generally just pretty blah. I thought pregnancy with one toddler was bad… I wish I could go back two years and tell myself how easy I had it!

Hang in there, Mary! I’m glad you got to enjoy some steak for your birthday :) You’re the cutest pregnant lady I know! Xo

A few weeks ago my husband was on his way home from work and asked what I wanted for dinner. I was really craving Wendy’s and asked him to stop there and pick up a cheeseburger. He came home with Burger King. I cried and refused to eat it. Not one of my finer pregnancy moments, but it happened. When will husbands learn?? ;)

{15 Weeks}

How Far Along: 15 weeks

How Big is Baby: An orange. 4.5 inches, 2-3 ounces

Weight Gained: -1/2 lbs

Maternity Clothes: Creeping into more maternity clothes as the days pass. I’m loving this striped skirt that I picked up at Target this week. Super comfy… it’s sure to be worn on a regular basis.

Sleep: Getting a little better at night. {For now.} I still toss and turn, and my dreams are absolutely crazy realistic.

Best Moments of the Week: Having Mum + Dad over this weekend to help clean and organize the basement in preparation for sheetrock and carpet next month. A great boudoir session with a gorgeous client on Saturday. Yummy homemade spaghetti dinner and game night with Sam and Jason.

Cravings: Steak. Asparagus. Brie. Crusty bread. Tangerine fruit pops. Grapefruit anything.

Aversions: Ground beef. Raw chicken.

Labor signs: None.

Symptoms: Same as last week. Still nauseous all. the. time. I had to call and have OB refill my Zofran early because I ran out! Lots of round ligament pains.

What Do I Miss: Nothing springs to mind.

How I’m Feeling: Tired. But… it’s warm outside!! We went to Target this morning with NO COATS on! If that doesn’t brighten things up… I don’t know what will!

{14 Weeks}

How Far Along: 14 weeks (on April 2nd)

How Big is Baby: A little lemon. 3 inches, 1.5 ounces

Weight Gained: -1 lbs.

Maternity Clothes: Some. I’m at the awkward in-between where some of my “regular” clothes still fit, some need a little assistance, and others I’ve just given up on entirely.

Sleep: I’m indulging in cat naps whenever I can sneak them in. Usually in the afternoon while June’s napping and Lucy’s watching a movie. Night is a different beast. The last week I’ve been waking up around 3 or 4a. and haven’t been able to fall back asleep for an hour or so.

Best Moments of the Week: Celebrating June’s 2nd birthday. Spending a quiet Saturday afternoon at my parent’s house playing games and catching up.

Cravings: Fruit… watermelon, pineapple, grapefruit. Tuna subs. Five Guys french fries.

Aversions: Meat. Anything with a super-strong smell.

Labor signs: None.

Symptoms: All the time nausea + throwing up. Sore everything… hips, boobs, lower back. Super tired.

What Do I Miss: Sushi. Waking up without the immediate urge to throw up.

How I’m Feeling: Still somewhat grumpy. Grey weather and a never-ending winter aren’t helping. But looking forward to warmer weather next week!

Surprise…!

So here’s a little story to start this all off:

2009 was a crazy sort of year for the young and unsuspecting Woes. Cra.Zy.

We found out we were pregnant in March. Matt proposed to me in April. We bought a new car in May. Got married in June. Closed on our house in October. Had a baby in November. And started a business in December.

We’ve always joked that there’s not much point in taking things the easy way. Guess we decided to test that theory out the hard way.

Well now, 2014 is lining up to be the new 2009.

We found out in February that we’re pregnant with Baby Woe, Part III! Whee!! Completely, totally, 100% unexpected… but most definitely not unwanted.

This is the cute little announcement we put together for friends and family.

Aww… so cute!

Then there’s the more realistic {aka Matt’s} version.

Yeah… that’s more like it.

Two kids was easy. The thought of three terrifies me.

Three means turning our little house upside down to make room for another bed. Three means buying a new car that’s a touch bigger than my little mommy Jeep. It means turning our routine on it’s head, learning how to navigate a world that’s built for families of 4, and preparing the girls for a new sibling.

But as we’ve said before and will always say… we’ll find a way to make it work.

Bring it on 2014.
