Pregnancy Week 11: Baby #2

I'm exhausted. This baby is sapping every ounce of energy that I have. All I want to do is sleep, sleep, sleep. I fall asleep every night around 8 o'clock and have to take a nap mid day before my afternoon shift at work. I don't remember being this exhausted when I was pregnant with Amari. In all honesty, I just remember having all day sickness with him. So far this pregnancy has been very different. For starters, I've only had morning sickness and two unpleasant experiences of purging out my insides (sorry for the gross details).  No back-pain; thank God! At 11 weeks and 2 days along my belly is starting to get that round shape and stick out a bit. I'm already showing. I didn't start showing with Amari until I was 13 weeks. It looks like I'm going to have to start taking weekly belly pictures from now on and pray that the feeling of being bloated goes away. Food cravings wise, all I want his hot spicy foods like burritos, chips and salsa, and jalapenos. I seriously go through a jar of pickles in a week and even down the juice which grosses Trevor out but is super delicious to me. Foods that cause me to be super nauseous is ranch and ketchup. =/ Even the stench of day old dirty dishes and opening up the garbage can to throw something away causes my stomach to churn. I find myself cleaning like a mad woman to keep stinky smells away. I feel like a hound dog with my amazing ability to smell things. As Adrian Monk used to say, "Its both a gift and a cruse." I just cannot wait to jump of the exhausted train and feel more like myself in the next few weeks. So far baby Durant numero dos is 1.6 inches tall and .25 ounces and is the size of a lime. We were supposed to see our little bean via ultrasound on Wednesday but we had to reschedule due to us both having interviews down in Portland. We will be seeing him or her for the first time as of May 10th. :] I look forward to our meeting in two weeks and keep thinking pink! This time around, Trev and I are both on the team pink bandwagon. We want a girl but we won't be disappointed if little bean is a boy. We just want God to bless us with a healthy baby.

  1. There is no kind of tired like 1st trimester tired. Glad you are almost through that part. I love imagining you drinking the pickle juice. Excited to hear about how your Portland interviews went, too. Sending love to the three of you and your little lime.
