7 months/31 weeks

Here are some pictures from whenever I started taking them.

This past week has been rough.  Besides the sore throat and clogged ears, runny nose, I can't sleep! I've been taking sleep drugs every night this week and I still lay in bed awake for at least 2 hours.  I think that I am both nervous and anxious about having another baby and my mind just keeps going and going! Nick is still a baby :(  and I don't want him to lose his time. I don't want to miss any one on one time with him - and now it is so limited with 2 months left.  I know it will be fine when the baby is actually here but the anxiety leading up to it is hard for me.  I've been trying to nap when Nick naps but I can't fall asleep. It's awful and I can't keep my eyes open.  I haven't been able to do much at all. I've been using a Neti Pot to clear out my sinuses 2x a day - those things are crazy!




Last week or the week before the baby dropped and this week I've had no heartburn at all! :) The baby is kicking like crazy - lots of movement. I've had a feeling in the past few weeks that it is a girl, but I have no basis.    I can't tell if I'm carrying differently than with Nick, but everything else feels the same. We'll see!

The funniest thing is still my obsession with Dove soap.  I have it in every bathroom. I don't want to eat it or anything, ha. I don't really having any food cravings, some here and there but nothing that stands out. The latest one is that I want a couple of chocolate munchkins from dunkin donuts but I'm unmotivated to go and ask for 2 munchkins. A lady at work brought me a bag of 6 one time but I've never gone in and just asked for chocolate munchkins. Other than that, lots of milk!

  1. Sorry you are so sick!! Good for using the Neti Pot, it should help.

    I love guessing!!! I "cheated" and looked back on Nick's birth stats so I could get a better idea of what to guess ;-)

  3. I wonder if my mom had some of the same thoughts, for she had 3 girls all back to back. Imagine having three babies in diapers and crying. I am the youngest, I wonder how she managed to divide her time between us.

    Hang in there.

  7. Hope you feel better soon. Being a mommy and being sick is so not fun.
    Cute belly!!
    Looks like mine when I was preggers. I hid a lot of baby in there without showing much until the very end!

  8. I felt the same way right before Isaac was born. I didn't want to miss out on things with Tristan. It's taken us awhile but we're finally all fitting together nicely into a routine. :D

  9. Poor you - I'm rubbish at being sick! Hope you feel better soon.

    You are so neat. My friend was a rower too and she carries very similar to you - so neat and tidy!

    I'm sure my mind would be doing the same circuits as you re: 2 wee nippers, but I am sure, as you said, that once babba 2 is here it will all click in to place. Nick will love having a wee bro or sis and you'll love watching his interactions with the wee one. He's had a wonderful 1.5 years of your undivided attention and it will stand him in good stead I'm sure. It is just a new little adventure that is going to be coming your way. That's what I keep telling myself when I have mini panicks about babba's arrival - it's all just a new adventure!

    Take care,

    Kaz.

  11. I feel your sickness - I've spent all of today on the couch with the same deal. But you're a superstar for being pregnant and dealing with it! I can't imagine the anxiety you're feeling, but you've accomplished so much since Nick was born that this will seem like a cinch, compared to running Boston! :) Feel better soon!

  12. Everything will work out fine once the wee one is here, but I can understand the anxiety. The not-knowing is always the toughest part.

  14. Don't feel sad about missing out on 1:1 time. I know I felt that way too, but it's great seeing the boys together. They really kind of like each other (most of the time). And remember- the 2nd baby won't have that 18+ months of 1:1 time that Nick had- and we never feel bad about that! You are giving Nick a best friend for life and that will mean as much as anything else you will do for him :)

  17. I remebered in past posts you had used a maternity support belt for running. I'm pregnant and the muscles under my belly are feeling a little "sprained" I was wondering if you could give me the info on your belt.
    By the way I really enjoy your blog, a litle bit of everything I'm interested in babies, health food, running gear, running:)

  18. I hope you feel better! I went through all of that with my first born and I was miserable with all of the allergies and sinus congestion. I hope you have a wonderful day! Your belly looks wonderful :)

  20. You are sooo tiny!!! I can't believe how far along and how tiny your tum is. I'm convinced I just get huge when I'm preggo.

  23. I had to use the neti pot a lot during the whole pregnancy. I just stayed congested for some reason. You look great!
