Baby Sparks #2 Bumpdate || 8 Weeks


How far along: 8 weeks, 4 days

Due Date: March 10, 2018

Baby is the size of: a wild strawberry! Although I can't feel it yet, this 0.04oz baby is already moving his or her arms and legs like crazy.

Gender: I'm hearing from more and more people that they think this little one is a boy. I'm still feeling the boy vibe as well. We'll find out sometime in September for sure.

Name: This child is going to be nameless for a while. We have a couple of girl names that we really like, but boy names are still proving to be impossible.

Symptoms: Nausea and exhaustion are both in full swing. The exhaustion is so much worse the second time because instead of taking naps or sleeping in, I'm chasing a wild toddler around. I'm hoping both symptoms start easing off in the coming weeks.

Weight Gain: no gain or loss this week

Movement: Nothing yet, obviously.

Cravings/Aversions: No particular cravings or aversions. Food in general is hit or miss. I can't stand the thought of eating in the morning time. I usually get hungry around lunch time, but then I start feeling nauseated right after eating.

Missing anything: My energy

Sleep: No complaints here. I'm about to breakout the pregnancy pillow though because sleeping on my stomach is becoming uncomfortable.

Mood: Emotional

Maternity Clothes: mostly just leggings and flowy tops for now.

Nursery: By this time in my last pregnancy I had already ordered fabric swatches for both, a girl and boy nursery. This go around I haven't even thought about the nursery yet.

Best moment this week: Being able to take a Sunday afternoon nap while Charlie Beth and her Daddy spent the afternoon together.

Looking forward to: Our next ultrasound at the end of the month!

Husband is: So patient with my whining and laziness. ;)

  1. Since we found out we're having a boy, it really does seem impossible to come up with good boy names!! I only had girl names picked out haha. You sound exactly like me about food! I can't wait to see what you're having!
