Happy Momma's Day!

Happy Momma's Day to all the Mothers and TO BE Mothers out there! 

We are having a super relaxing Mothers Day Indoors. It's a rainy mess out here, and it's been the perfect day to run errands and chill out....

Why YES, that is a picture of my smiling toddler. And NO, he isn't always smiling..but he is generally very happy:) This week has been a tough one in terms of terrible two's. Grayson is definitely pushing/testing limits and has been increasingly cranky. He did cut a tooth and has allergy issues, so we assume it's one of those. Today he seemed MUCH better and we're hoping that last week was just a fluke of feeling bad. 

On another note, Grayson figured out how to open the front door. We didn't have a child lock on the handle because he can't reach the deadbolt. WELLL....he finally figured out that he can push a kitchen table chair ALL the way over to the front door, unlock the deadbolt, remove the chair and BOLT. Sneaky kid I tell ya! 

And since I mentioned the outdoors, I know that I've said a couple times Grayson is obsessed. But I really mean. GRAYSON IS OBSESSED with outside. On my days off with G, I spend roughly 2-3 hours out with him. If he's been at daycare, that number is usually the same since the daycare provider likes to have all the kids outside as much as possible, too. 

Below is my weekly Quiz:

  • How far along?  14 Weeks
  • Total weight gain:  0lbs. The midwife wasn't concerned at all. I eat very healthy and she doesn't want me to change my eating habits at all....we will re-evaluate at my next appt if there isn't any gain, but both her and I think that I will definitely see a change at the next appt. 
  • Maternity clothes?  Nothing yet. I don't even have to use the elastic band trick on my pants. ALTHOUGH my work pants are getting a little snug by the end of the day! 
  • Stretch marks? None. I didn't have any with G and hopefully I won't get any new ones! 
  • Sleep:  Fine
  • Best moment this week:  Dan got to feel a kick! I know I thought I felt some kicks last week, but this week it was pretty definite. 
  • Miss Anything? a glass of wine and a mimosa! 
  • Movement: Starting to feel flutters, pops and kicks!
  • Food cravings: Nothing in particular this week. 
  • Food aversions: Still the coffee thing
  • Gender: Still thinking Girl
  • Labor Signs: too early!
  • Symptoms: Nothing really
  • Belly Button in or out? In, but that will be short lived. I have a very narrow "innie" so I'll most likely pop out early. 
  • Wedding rings on or off? Well...on...BUT my e-ring is off because I lost a diamond out of the band! Boo. 
  • Looking forward to:  Finding out the gender in a little under 2 weeks! 
  • Workouts - same as last week - 40 minutes 3 days a week (20 minutes cardio, 20 mins weights) 1 day of 20 minute at home workout while G naps
  • Feelings: I feel really great. I'm still super calm about this pregnancy compared to G's and have a much more "peaceful" idea/feeling towards the pregnancy and afterwards. I wanted to go into this pregnancy feeling more relaxed, and I feel I've achieved that. With Grayson I had a lot of anxiety, and for some reason (maybe being a mom already) those feelings are completely erased.

  1. I'm completely relaxed this pregnancy also. I don't feel the need to get anything done (which is why at 24 weeks nothing is done, lol) and know that sleep deprivation isn't forever. You look amazing!
