Sophia's going to be a big sister!



If you haven't already heard...
 Sophia's going to be a big sister!!!!  Yay!!!!
 Baby Nikola #2 is due May 10th, 2014.
Sooo... Let's talk about my second round of being pregnant.  I'm 14 weeks to be exact! 

Let's start off with how I "found out" I was pregnant because believe me, I didn't think I was..not.at.all!

It was in late August and I felt all my symptoms of my monthly friend coming on.. I had terrible back pain and cramps < Hint # 1.  One night I became super hungry- stomach growling and everything!  So I decided to munch on two Oreo's and almost immediately I became nauseous < Hint # 3.  I still didn't think anything of it until the next day.  Andrew and I were supposed to go out to a bar with some friends and I decided that maybe I should take a pregnancy test.. Just to play it safe since I was planning to have a few drinks at the bar. Two tests later, I had myself two pink lines! DING, DING, DING!  I told Andrew immediately.  He then grabbed Sophia, spun her around and said, "You're going to be a big sister!" <-a memory I will never forget..

I felt pretty good up until 7 weeks, THEN all the first trimester FUN started..
Nausea- All day
Hungry-All the time
Exhaustion- 3:01 PM
Moodiness (ask Andrew...lol)

I felt these symptoms were worse the second time around.

At 10 weeks I had to start wearing maternity pants..  I couldn't do the muffin top anymore.  Plus, I happen to love my prego pants. They are so comfy!

12 weeks- 3:00 AM bathroom visits start as well as a little baby bump.  People at work were giving me "the look."  I couldn't hide it anymore.. lol.

14 weeks- Today I feel like I finally have more energy and the nausea is not as bad.  It's worse on the weekends which is probably because I'm not working.  Back pain and pelvic pressure has started already- this is something I do not miss!

14 Weeks today!
During my last pregnancy, I developed an inguinal hernia.  It did not bother me until the end of my last pregnancy but this time around, it is already painful.  Anyone else develop an hernia?  How did you deal with the uncomfort?

So that's my pregnancy/ first trimester story!!  I plan to share so much more with you and turn to you for some guidance and advice.  I want to thank you all for the well wishes and thoughtfulness!  My Born to Wear Diamonds readers have such a special place in my heart <3
