How Far Along: 17 weeks!
Size of baby: Size of Red Onion! Grow baby, Grow!
Maternity Clothes: Yes! Since week 10 this time around... nothing fit comfortably. :)
Gender: BABY GIRL!! Ruby Rae!
Movement: Yes, started feeling flutters 2 weeks ago. I love that it's only inside me that I can feel... special for Ruby and I. I love the big kicks too! That will be fun!
Sleep: Pretty good. I wake up from 3-4am every morning so that's a little annoying but I use it as time to pray! :)
What I miss: Nothing much besides deli meat. I sometimes cheat ;)
Food Cravings: I crave peaches... peanut butter and boneless buffalo wings... honey bbq. Similar craving to when I was pregnant with Jude. I'm just not AS hungry like 3x a day, but hungry more often... :)
Food Aversions: Nothing too bad! Eggs were a little rough a few weeks back, but I am good now!
Symptoms: 2nd Trimester is so happy for me! I'm not AS tired and don't need to nap with Jude in the afternoons. Still get tired in the evening, but thankful for a full day without a nap!
Jude Is: Such a funny boy. Loves saying "Roo-ey" (his version of Ruby). He still thinks baby is a "boy" but I think he does that to get a laugh out of us. We are working on potty training :/ Crazy kid!! He is loving summer and having daddy home! :)
What I’m looking forward to:
Growing & continuing to tell Jude about his sister. We talk about her all the time, it's really quite special. He always says he wants her to come "out" and I explain she is not done growing yet. We have a 20 week ultrasound coming up which will be super fun to see how big she has gotten! I love seeing her sweet little profile. :)
