Baby #2 - Weeks 7 & 8

Since this will probably be my last pregnancy I want to remember every moment of it! I am going to attempt to update weekly on all the happenings of Baby # 2!
I am so excited to go to our first doctor appt on Monday 3/30. I am so anxious to see the little bean in there that has been making me feel so sick. 
How far along: 7 weeks
Total weight gain: -2 lbs
Maternity clothes: My pants/shorts are getting a little tight. I am not sure if its just bloat or the baby 
Sleep: Sleep is good, just can't seem to get enough of it. I am tired ALL THE TIME.
Miss anything: Not feeling sick and tired everyday, but I know that in a few short weeks I will feel good again 
Movement: Not yet, way to early
Food cravings: Cereal and anything salty
Anything making you queasy or sick: not anything in particular, nauseous on/off all day and I only vomit a few times a week (lucky me!)
Gender: We don't know yet. I'm thinking boy, but Chinese calendar says Girl.

The 8 week appointment went well. Our sweet little one was measuring right at 8 weeks 3 days and our due date is November 7th!

We are expecting Baby #2!!!

Baby #2 due November 7, 2015

 Background Info:

We have been trying since July 2014, we had been "trying" meaning I had been using ovulation kits and paying attention for fertile signs for several months. We decided this month (February) to just relax not think about it and just leave it up to God. Well turns out that was just what we needed because it just so happens that this month WAS our month.

Since I really wasn't paying any attention to anything this month I really didn't think there was anyway that I was pregnant. But the last few days I had been really really tired. The kinda tired I was when I was pregnant with Tanner. I jokingly said to Kris "I know I am not pregnant but I am just so tired… like pregnant tired." He and I just both laughed and chalked it up to working so much this last week.

Today 2/24 I decided I would just take a test midday because I just knew it would be negative but it turns out there was a faint second line!!!!
I couldn't believe it….. complete shock!

The next day I took digital test too!

We are so thrilled for Tanner to become a big brother!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
