I saw this questionnaire on Heather’s blog and thought it would be a fun way to share some details about Baby Boy #2. I’ve also had a few questions for more posts about baby, so here ya go! ;)
What were your first pregnancy symptoms?
I felt hungover ALL OF THE TIME. And super tired. That sucked… I wasn’t even enjoying wine and still felt awful, LOL!
What was your first reaction to your pregnancy?
It better be a boy. No joke… That was my first thought!
How far along were you when you found out?
6-7 weeks. Way TMI here, but I didn’t get my period back until I stopped breastfeeding Dean and then it took two months… SO, I only had it once since Dean was born and my doctor told me it could take some time to get back to a regular cycle so I thought my body was just out of whack.
How did your parents/family react?
Surprised? Excited? Normal family reactions.
How did you tell your friends?
My doctor says June 6th… I say June 12th. We shall see!
Will you find out the sex ahead of time?
Done and done. BOY! Woohoo!!! Bunk beds here we come!
Do you have any feelings about whether you’re having a boy or a girl?
I totally thought it was a girl because I was never sick with Dean but alas, this little guy is already giving me a run for my money.
Not really. Dean was SO easy to name but I haven’t come across any boy names that I love yet. Kyle told me last night he has a few ideas and we are going to start a list on our chalkboard. I obviously like traditional names that aren’t overused… Hopefully we can find one!
How many ultrasounds have you had?
Two. My doctor does them each visit. He has 3D capabilities this time too which is cool but also a bit creepy!
Have you felt the baby move?
I don’t know. It is so hard to tell early on. Who knows! He was moving like a crazy man in both ultrasounds though so maybe I have and just haven’t recognized it ;)
Will you be sharing weekly pregnancy updates on the blog?
No. I didn’t share that often with Dean because I think weekly updates are somewhat boring. I’ll pop in and share every now and then though!
How have you been feeling?
Crappy! I think I’m starting to feel mostly better and am definitely sleeping better/have more energy.
Do you have any cravings/ aversions?
CARBS, LOL! I’ll like something one day and then cannot stand the thought of leftovers the next. It’s super fun…
Have you experienced any crazy pregnancy related emotions?
I think I get annoyed more easily. Kyle will tell you this is normal ;)
Any mood swings?
I feel like I’ve still been pretty level-headed. I do get crabby if I’m tired!
How far along are you now?
Per my doc’s calculations… 17 weeks on Christmas Day.
How has work/teaching been going?
Good! I actually ended up telling one of the girls who shares my office about my pregnancy early on because I felt so awful and didn’t want her to think I was a miserable person. LOL. She is pregnant too so it’s been fun in our office! Teaching has been GREAT. It helped to keep my mind off of my nausea for an hour at a time. I’m not modifying anything yet except my bench is tilted in BODYPUMP. Better safe than sorry in my opinion.
How do you think Dean will react to having a little brother?
He is going to hate life. Haha. Okay, not laughing about this but I guarantee he will act out for a good 6 months. He is a mama’s boy so seeing mama cuddling another baby is going to drive him crazy. Fingers crossed! They will (hopefully) eventually get along because they are getting bunk beds whether they like it or not. #momgoals
If you have any specific questions for me, ask below! I will be doing another survey in the future and will include your questions there.
