Pregnancy #2: 29 Weeks Update + Spring Cleaning
Hey hey hey!
Something I’ have noticed about pregnancy #2 is that I forget how many weeks I am. People ask me and I have to think about it or refer to the Bump app on my phone to double check my progress. Time is flying by and slowing down at the same time right now. I have it in my mind that I need to prepare for my due date to be two weeks early. I know I won’t necessarily go early, but in talking with other ladies it seems like it could definitely be a possibility so I’d rather have that in my head now. With that mindset, my due date could be the very beginning of July.
Over the weekend we picked out the chair for baby boy’s room. We are keeping Sage’s chair in his new room and consequently needed a new one for the baby. I love it! It is a big and cozy recliner that will take up half the nursery, but I know now how much time I’ll spend in that chair so it is exactly what we wanted. We figure eventually we’ll move it out to the family room or into Sage’s room (which is much bigger than the baby’s room). The crib is setup and baby boy's room is almost set. The drawers aren't filled with clothes yet except for this cute outfit. I also cleaned out my car over the weekend which is a relief. It took all of 15 minutes. Just had to throw out the junk that somehow accumulates. Spring cleaning is happening little by little.
Also, in the spirit of Spring, I chopped off all my hair. It’s light and fresh and will take some getting used to, but I’m really happy about it. It’s just fun to try something new. I haven’t had my hair this short in years. It was around this length when I met my husband and that was six years ago, so it has certainly been a while. The hairdresser was like “there’s no going back…” and I told her “go for it!”. I figure by the time baby boy #2 is a year it will be long again and maybe then I’ll want to take the time to style it.
I’ve had a cold the last week. Thankfully nothing too horrible that it took me out of work, but it is still lingering. I’ve just been super congested and have a little cough. My husband has been dealing with the same cold and Sage has had the sniffles so we’re all fighting something. It actually feels better to be up and moving around though opposed to just lying around.
I found out at my last appointment that I’m anemic and need to start taking an iron supplement. This did not surprise me as my iron levels dropped during my pregnancy with Sage at this point. I’ve also brought Green Monster smoothies back into my life in the hopes of also getting a solid kick of iron that way. My cravings for nutritious food have also increased. Vegetables are making much more of an appearance. Sage was even loving the green beans I had the other night which made this mama so happy. He was actually choosing to eat green beans over his pasta which shocked me! It’s all about the little things, right?
In case you missed it, Love A Latte is going to be getting a renovation soon. Watch out for that!
Do you have long or short hair? Which do you like better?
