Pregnancy #2 Update and a PinkBlush Giveaway!

I figured now is as good a time as any to give you all a bump update for Baby Boy Rotz #2! I wasn’t blogging when I was pregnant with Jude so I never did these updates, and the thought of weekly updates for this pregnancy seemed like a lot of work. But I figured I have to document it at least once on here!

Pregnancy #2 Update | Ellie And Addie

How Far Along – 30 Weeks 5 Days – Due Date of April 14, 2016 (same due date as Jude!)

Size of Baby – According to my What to Expect App the baby is the size of a butternut squash. According to how I feel I think he’s a large watermelon.

Gender – BOY! And I still make them confirm that at every ultra sound.

Total Weight Gain – Yeah right, like I would post that on the Internet! I definitely started this pregnancy weighing more than I did when I was first pregnant with Jude. But I haven’t gained as much yet with this one. I definitely have quite a baby belly, and have for some time now, but my total pounds on the scale isn’t as high as I would have thought. But we still have about 10 weeks to go so we’ll see what happens!

Cravings – Honestly I haven’t had any crazy cravings. I did want spicy tacos and (virgin) margaritas a few months ago. And while I wouldn’t turn either of those things down now, I don’t feel the need to have them all the time (like I did with Jude).

What Do I Miss – Beer. And sometimes sushi. But mostly I just really want a glass of sour beer, specifically Peach Katy by 2nd Shift!

Sleep – Oh goodness my sleep is just awful lately. Whether it’s tossing and turning or having to get up and go to the bathroom, but I just cannot get comfortable. But I do love my pregnancy pillow!

Nursery – This is a story for a whole other post. Which is actually being planned and written to go up next week! :)

How is Big Brother – Jude is doing awesome. I honestly don’t know if he has any idea that there’s a baby in my belly. We occasionally ask him where the baby is and he gives us a look and then stares at my belly, but he doesn’t bring it up on his own ever. I really don’t plan on having any expectations for Jude when this baby arrives (I mean he will only be 2), and I’m totally okay with that!

Maternity Clothes – Um basically since I saw the positive test, and yes leggings count as pants! No but seriously, I’ve been rocking the maternity jeans for a while and I’ve been able to wear all my old maternity shirts and tank tops from last time. We totally did not plan having a baby in April again, but I’m not complaining about being able to reuse everything!

Speaking of clothes, I really didn’t want to spend a lot of money on new maternity clothes, but when PinkBlush reached out to me about trying some of their clothes I couldn’t say no! They have a regular shop AND a maternity shop full of the cutest clothes for women. I picked out this black and white striped cardigan because I knew it would be perfect to wear while pregnant, but I could also get tons of use after baby out of it! And because I have no self control, when I saw they were having a sale (which they have quite often, make sure you sign up for their emails!) I decided to snag this pink sweater. I thought the lace detailing on the sleeve was so pretty and would be perfect to wear during the month of love!
