Baby Sparks #2 Bumpdate || 14 Weeks


How far along: I wrote this around 14 weeks, 3 days. So we'll go with that. I forgot to post it last week, so I'm inching somewhere between 15 and 16 weeks now.

Due Date: March 10, 2018 <---- This has already been changed once and could very well change again. Baby is still measuring almost 2 weeks ahead of schedule.

Baby is the size of: A Peach? And Orange? With this baby measuring so far ahead I really have no idea which week to compare him to. The important part is that baby's kidneys have begun making urine, and the liver and spleen are doing their jobs too!

Gender: a precious little BOY!!

Name: We haven't set it in stone yet, but we DO have a name front runner picked out. I told Steven I wanted to sleep on it for a few days before announcing it as officially his name.

Symptoms: Mainly just headaches. I've never really dealt with severe headaches before, so they are really knocking me down. Tylenol helps, but I hate taking any kind of medicine while pregnant.

Weight Gain: Still up 1 lb from pre-pregnancy weight.

Movement: I am feeling small little kicks/flutters here and there. Definitely nothing consistent and movement is still very light. I LOVE when I feel them though!

Cravings/Aversions: Still craving a cold, fresh salad.

Missing anything: Wine.

Sleep: Pretty good for the most part.

Mood: Happy and much less emotional and moody these days.

Maternity Clothes: Mixing and matching maternity and non-maternity. The pre-pregnancy pants have all been moved to the back of the closet for the remainder of this pregnancy. It's either dresses, maternity shorts, or leggings right now.  

Nursery: Now that we know we are having a sweet baby BOY it's time to get started planning to nursery!

Best moment this week: Definitely finding out that we are adding a baby brother to the mix! We are so excited, and it was so much fun announcing the news to our family last weekend.

Looking forward to: Cooler weather, football, and all things Fall.

Husband is: So excited to be a daddy to a daughter and a son!


  1. It is awesome that you are craving salads! I wanted to bad to want a salad most of my pregnancy but all I wanted was burgers and sweet things lol. Still so excited to hear you are having a boy!!! You get one of each, the best of both worlds. Hopefully the headaches calm down for you, those are the worst.

  2. So so happy for y'all on your little boy! Since I already have my girl, I don't really care what gender baby #2 will be but for some reason I'm leaning towards wanting another girl. Jesse used to say if we had two girls, he'd jump off a cliff but now he is convinced this little one is a girl and he's happy. We'll see if he's right in a few months lol.

  3. I wish I had craved salads- early on it was just baked potatoes and Frosty's then turned to Strawberry Refreshers from Starbucks with lemonade haha. I love having a boy, they're so fun!

  4. Did you lose weight in the beginning with Charlie Beth? I didn't with Rory but in the beginning of this pregnancy I did. I have a feeling it is a boy even though my gut feeling at the last ultrasound was girl.
