Back.... with a bump!

Hi, is anyone still out there? I don't blame you if you've stopped following. Truth be told, this summer has been incredibly quiet and I've been totally uninspired. Thankfully, I have a reason for the radio silence.... I'm baking a baby!

Have you ever seen a cuter / more excited big brother? No idea what's coming!

We are so excited to be pregnant again and can't wait to welcome our baby GIRL in mid-February. You read that right, a sweet baby girl is joining our family. I'm so excited for all shades of pink, florals and headbands. 

We found out the baby's gender at 10 weeks after doing the Panorama test which most importantly, showed that the baby is healthy! Finding out its a girl was the icing on the cake.

I had a feeling that this baby was a girl from day one as I have been so sick. With Henry I thought I was nauseous but nothing could have prepared me for the all day sickness of this pregnancy. I lost 5 lbs during my first two weeks of pregnancy and I still haven't been able to gain it all back. My doctor prescribed medication which certainly helped take the edge off and as long as I take it religiously I'm able to eat. McDonald's fries and milkshakes have been a diet staple but salads are slowly making their way back into my life.

The first trimester exhaustion was also quite intense this time, being pregnant while running after a toddler is no joke. Thankfully I'm 14 weeks and change and finally feeling motivated again. I honestly haven't cooked and have hardly worked out for the past three months. I'm so excited to get back to my healthy self.

On the work front, I was so lucky to have a quiet summer. As a freelancer I'm constantly hustling to find work but this summer, I just let it be and other than a few projects, I was able to rest and focus on my pregnancy.... plus, wrangle Henry! Now that I'm feeling better, I'm keen to be busy again! I have a few exciting things in the hopper and I'm constantly pitching new clients. My maternity leave plans are TBD but I do plan on working until I pop!

Last time around I shared weekly updates. There is NO WAY that is happening this time but I do plan on posting monthly updates. At the very least, I'd like to use this blog as a way to look back on my second pregnancy. 

Baby #2 @ 8 weeks!

Baby #2 @ 14 weeks!

I hope that you follow along on my journey! Feel free to post comments / questions.
