Bump Bound - Week 14

(Originally written 09/29/12)

Second Trimester!!!

Weight gain?  I thought I had gained a lot of weight up until this point.   My scale at home had put me at about 5 extra lbs since we found out.  I was just sure that at our appointment a few weeks ago the doctor was going to tell me to stop eating.  I mean, nothing fits!  And not just around my stomach.  However, I was pleasantly surprised when the doctor told me I’d only put on 1 pound.  Holler!!!!  Our scale at home is a lot meaner than the doctor’s scale.  I’m supposed to gain a pound a week from here on out though……Yikes!  Secretly, I'm looking forward to it because that means I 'm closer to having a bump!

Sleep?  When I first started typing I was going to say that I’ve been sleeping great, but then I remembered.  I sleep great until about 1:00 or 2:00 in the morning and then BAM!  I wake up with that stupid Chris Brown “Don’t Wake Me Up” song in my head.  WTH?!?! It happens EVERY night!  I haven’t even heard that song in over a month.  It’s totally annoying but I can’t help but laugh at the irony of the song lyrics as I sit there wide awake bee-bopping to the music in my head.   Once I finally fall back to sleep, I sleep great the rest of the night.  Until…..I wake up with daily migraines.   Its awful!  I’ve had three massages and two adjustments in the past three weeks and they help for about a day or so and then the headaches are back.  I sure hope these go away soon!  Maybe a new pillow will help?  Its worth a shot!

Stretch marks?  Not yet, thankfully!  I’m still actually waiting for my belly to pop out.  I’m still in that stage where I look thick and not pregnant.  That’s a fun stage! (insert sarcasm). But wow, talk about itching!  My stomach and chest itch so badly.  And of course, they itch the most when I’m out in public and can’t shouldn't scratch them.  I wish I could say that has stopped me from scratching.

We had our 10 year high school reunion this week. Where did the time go?  It was a lot of fun and we got some great pictures.  It turns out that I only have one dress that still zips.  Its almost time to go shopping.

Just as I thought, we hung out with the people we always hang out with!  Some of the best peeps around!

Someone's had some juice to get loose

Where was I when this was taken?  Oh yeah, I was going pee for the trillionth time. 

What's going on here?  I'll have to ask....

No. Words.

Eagles for Life!

Two VERY exciting things happened this week!  My husband got a great new job and got to tell the Richard  of a boss to shove it!  Bahahaha!  It was fantastic!  Then, since he didn’t start his new job until 10/8, he decided on a whim to book us a cruise to the Bahamas.  So he booked our cruise on Thursday and we headed out on Sunday.  What a great Babymoon!!! Pics and details to come in a separate post.


  1. I honestly don't think I had any idea you went on a cruise!

    I had a lot of headaches this time around as well...daily. They stopped a week or so into my second trimester, so I hope yours have as well. Apparently they are very common in pregnancy, so don't waste money on a new pillow yet!

    Lastly, I love the first few weigh-ins when you are pleasantly surprised by little to no gain. I am bracing myself for my appointment on Monday becuase I had only gained 2 or 3 pounds as of my last appointment but that definitely has changed (as it should, I just hope not too dramatically) :)

  2. Not many people did. It was literally "I think we should go on a cruise," so we did. :) I'll fill you in next time we see each other (hopefully soon!)

    Fast forward to current time - I'm glad to know I'm not alone in the headache dept. They are getting a lot better but still around. AND....The 1 pound gain was a fluke. At my last appt, I'd put on another 5....And I definitely look pregnant now. :)

    Can't wait to hear about your appt on Monday and what's new with you!
