8 Weeks Pregnant with Baby #2

Week ending Aug 22, 2017.
Due Date: April 3, 2018

Announcing to the Internet:

We waited until pretty much the first trimester was over with Calvin, but this time around, I just didn't want to keep it a secret so long. So after our first ultrasound, we figured it would be time. I wanted to be able to document my journey in as close to real-time as possible for my social media accounts, etc. since I'm super bad with secrets anyway.

+1 pound
Officially using the rubber band method on my pants. 

Behaved myself this week.

Getting an extra hour of sleep super duper helps! Nine hours is the perfect amount.
Overall, I would say the fatigue was a little less intense this week though. Maybe it's just because I've been trying to go to bed earlier.

Physical Symptoms:
Extreme hunger. I feel like a newborn. I must eat every two hours on the dot!
Total decrease in sex drive. I don't remember that when I was pregnant with Calvin. Maybe it's simply because of the fatigue, I just want to sleep all the time.
Headaches have been better.
My right shoulder's been bothering me. When I was pregnant with Calvin my left shoulder hurt and I had to go to the chiropractor to get it back to normal. I was farther along when it happened with Cal though.

Gathered up some "healthy" snacks at the grocery store this week to have at work. When I'm hungry the morning sickness kicks in. Greek yogurt, watermelon, apples, canned fruit. Hope this works out.

Sleep & Dreams:
Had a dream I died. That was weird. Haha.
Struggled a little with sleep this week. Calvin also had a couple bad nights. I just can't seem to get comfy some nights.

Favorite Moments of the Week:
Ultrasound day was Thursday (7 wks, 2 days). We both got to take the whole day off even though the appointment was only at 8:30 am.
Then being able to announce to the internet after our ultrasound!
Baby measured 7 wks, 5 days. 1.4 cm big. :)

What I Miss:
Being comfy in my pants at work. Haha.

Random Thoughts:
I can't wait to figure out baby's sex! We ordered a blood test on Amazon called Sneak Peak that you can take at 9 weeks, that's just right around the corner! I'm so excited! My bets are on boy, but I seriously do not have a preference either way. Everyone keeps asking what I want, but I legit would be just as happy either way. Every time I tell Justin a new symptom that's different from my first pregnancy, he says it must be a girl. Haha. :)
