17 weeks pregnant

Now, let’s see if I’ll keep at it. With a toddler in the house I have other priorities than posting on my blog but often I think I really have to post the weekly baby bump because I wonder, how was it with Baby#1 compared to this pregnancy? So, here we go…

How far along: 17 weeks
How much do I weigh: 51,5 kg (with Baby#1 I weighed 1kg less)
Baby size: Size of the palm of my hand
Belly button in or out: After I eat the top of my belly-button sticks out a bit 🙂
Sleep: It’s ok
Food (non) cravings: I’m in the mood for coffee again which I didn’t drink the first three months. Other than that no special cravings.
Symptoms: My belly hurts each morning but I’m not sure if it’s in my uterus or just my intestine or full bladder.
Maternity clothes: Pants and tops, daily
Stretch marks: None
Miss anything: A sip of beer, being able to take pain medicine
Looking forward to: Next sonography which is the big one
Best happenings this week: Visiting Oma and Opa and spending a few days there
Movement: Nope, as I have a front wall placenta let’s see when I will feel the baby
Gender: It’s going to be a surprise, I assume baby will be a boy
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy and bitchy (according to the bubby)
Sports: Due to lack of time I haven’t been going regularly. I have to start going twice or three times a week again!

Expecting Baby #2!

Woot woot – baby #2 is on its way 🙂

I took a pregnancy test on August 9th 2017 which was positive.

I was 8+ weeks pregnant at my first appointment and the little peanut inside me has a heartbeat and is growing. I assumed that I am 7 weeks pregnant yet I guess my last cycle started with the first day I had one drop of blood in my panties – confusing.

The due date is sometime in April 2018. So, if all goes good, I’ll have two April kids 🙂

How far along: 8 weeks
How much do I weigh: 49,7 kg
Belly size: The usual fat-bump
Belly button in or out: In
Sleep: I have too much going on in my brain. A lot is bothering me at work, things changed at the Gyn office. Q comes into our big bed every night at the moment so.. sleep? Not so good
Food (non) cravings: Not in the mood for coffee
Symptoms: Nausea every day the whole day! Sometimes stronger, sometimes not so strong. I’m very flabby, my blood pressure was 95/60 yesterday and that’s how I feel. The headache has gotten better, the first few weeks I had it very strong once a week. I’m not in the mood for a n y t h i n g, I have to force myself to go to the gym.
Maternity clothes: None yet but I wish I could wear them already 🙂
Stretch marks: None
Miss anything:
Looking forward to: … the time without nausea
Best happenings this week: Seeing the baby’s heartbeat <3

9 weeks

How far along: 9 weeks
How much do I weigh: 49,5 kg
Belly size: The usual fat-bump
Belly button in or out: In
Sleep: Well I wake up every night a couple of times which is nothing new for me
Food (non) cravings: Not in the mood for coffee
Symptoms: Nausea every day the whole day! Sometimes stronger, sometimes not so strong. I’m very flabby. I feel like throwing up when I smell too intense things (like bodylotion or chemicals from cleaning)
Maternity clothes: None
Stretch marks: None
Miss anything: Life without nausea
Looking forward to: … the time without nausea
Best happenings this week: Telling most of the family members about the pregnancy

It’s been a while since I wrote everything on the top and I am now 15+ weeks pregnant. All good so far, the first three months are over and I am so happy, I feel a lot better now. My belly seems huge and I’m too lazy to make photos 🙁 Too busy to blog and just occupied with other things in real life I guess. I wish I’d make a weekly blog about my pregnancy just like with Baby#1. Halp!


Unser Sohne ist nun schon 26 Monate alt, also über zwei Jahre.

Ich sitze gerade vor dem Laptop um ihm für den Urlaub einen Badeanzug zu bestellen. Neben mir sitzt mein Mann. Er frägt mich ob ich schon auch die richtige Größe bestelle.

Ich verdrehe die Augen, schau meinen Mann an und frage ihn “Was trägt unser Sohn denn für eine Größe?!” Nach etwas zögern und einer Antwort von “das steht doch in den Klamotten” antwortet er “58?”

Long time no write…

Hello there, is anybody still reading this blog (seeing I never blog)?

Anyway… hm, I’d like to blog more about my little wild almost two year old (baby) boy, but then on the other hand I don’t want to share too much information about him online. I probably could just blog and not share pictures though. Not sure.

So, life is good but I’m sick way too often. It started in the beginning of December when I had a pulled muscle, then a laryngitis, then a cold, and now a cold. I called sick into work so often the last 2,5 months I feel bad.
This time, about a week ago, Q had lots of yellow stuff in his eyes. I had to put in eye drops five times a day and clean his eyes a lot. It wasn’t a conjunctivitis, luckily, but still it was catching, as I got it three days later. The same thing – everything behind the nose is clogged, the tear fluid which is being produced cannot run through the nose so it just comes out of the eyes – yummy! I haven’t had something like that in 35 years but now, with a child, it’s never too late for the first time.

Q and I stayed home one week now, his eyes are pretty good now and I think I’ll put him into child-care tomorrow, so that he can play a bit with his friends. And mommy (me) will RELAX!

I always wondered how mothers do it – to be sick with a child. My answer is: Advil! 🙂 I’m not a fan of taking medicine but when I’m sick I pretty much take them all the time. Don’t blame me 😉

Q’s play corner in the living/dining room is finished now, here’s a photo
Q's play-corner in the living/dining room
I moved it around differently but that’s all I wanted for him – a little table with chairs, a book shelf, a bench (which is also a shelf – whoa) where he can sit and read 🙂

How have you been?
