17 & 18 Week Bumpdates

Okay, I swear that I'm trying to make the time to blog... but these past few weeks have been even crazier than usual :/ Like I always say, *hopefully* things will slow down soon, but who knows if that will happen... ugh, too busy! Anyway, I wanted to make it a point to get both this and Jacksie's next update written this week and figured I'd start with my bumpdate because it would be shorter and easier, ha! Here is what S.B.B. and I have been up to the last two weeks.
Sorry... making the bed, cleaning the mirror, and picking things up was just too much to ask!  
How far along: 16 weeks, 4 days

Total Weight Gain/Loss: I had a regular doctor's appointment last week and weighed in at 149, bringing me to a 12 lb. weight gain. 

Maternity clothes: I splurged on a few maxi skirts (pictured) and am kicking myself for not doing it sooner! They are so comfortable and forgiving... I was told by many that I'd gain faster/show earlier with this second baby and they weren't kidding!

Stretch marks: Nada.

Sleep: Eh... I still get up at least once a night to use the restroom and have about a 50/50 chance of immediately falling back asleep... we FINALLY got Jax back into his own bed at night too which has been a comfortable blessing for all! (More room = happy mamma!)

Best moment last week: It has actually been a very bittersweet week. My amazing 96-year-old Great Aunt Millie (who only lives a few blocks away from us) was given a few days to live so we've been over there daily entertaining her (with Mr. Personality, Jax) and visiting. The initial diagnosis was a week and a half ago and she's still going strong -- and still as feisty as ever -- so we've been enjoying this special time with her. 

Movement: Not really... but I can feel those weird little hardening/softening of the uterus contractions a few times a day so it's easier to tell where he is. 

Food cravings/aversions: Aside from fruit, no real cravings... we've just been overeating!! (My parents have been staying the night at Millie's this week and we go out/order in almost every night.)

Gender: BOY!!!

Labor signs: No, thank goodness!

Belly button - in or out? In. 

What I miss: Being ahead on work... ha! 

What I am looking forward to: Mom and I leave for Vegas early Thursday morning :D
