A Little Avocado...

This is a little strange, signing back into my Blogger account after over 3 months away! It's been a nice little break from has been busy with working part time and I just haven't found the time to get any writing done. I've also felt like I haven't had much to say these past few months, and didn't want to write posts just for the sake of writing posts, so that's why it's been so quiet around here.

And the biggest reason for my disappearance is that we've been busy trying to sell our house and buy a new one and all that goes along with that. We need more space since baby #2 will be making his or her appearance sometime in November!

If you follow me on Instagram you've probably already seen this picture, but I wanted to put it on the blog too, since I'll be starting some pregnancy update posts in the next few weeks...which means I need to start taking some bump pictures! I can't believe we're already past the 17 week mark...this pregnancy is FLYING by! Our ultrasound will be in a little over 2 weeks and we're so excited to see this new little one.

So far this pregnancy has been quite similar to Tessa's, except that I'm finding that some symptoms have started earlier and in some cases are much worse than the first time. I've heard that's pretty common. For me, the nausea & sickness started about 3 weeks earlier than it did with Tessa and has been much, MUCH worse. I've also started to have some slight hip and pelvic discomfort that I didn't get until later with Tessa, as well as nasal congestion that I didn't get until the last 8 weeks or so last time around. And of course, I'm bigger than I was at this stage last time. But other than that I'm feeling pretty good and am so excited to be a part of bringing another life into this world.

17 weeks - excuse the terrible picture!


  1. Cute little bump, Nancy!!! Tessa will be such a great big sister!!!! Hope everything is well

  2. Congratulations!! Your bump is so cute :)

  3. Awww congrats!!! That's so exciting! And I'm glad you've enjoyed your blog break and I'm also excited to read your pregnancy updates. I also showed sooner with my second pregnancy, but in the end I was the same size as with my first, I may have just got there a little sooner lol. You look GREAT!

  4. congratulations, that's so exciting!
    We're due with our first in October, and i'm always happy to find more moms to look up to.
    what a cute little bump - you look great!

  5. Congratulations! This is the reason I took a blogging break too! I had all day "morning" sickness so bad that I was basically on the couch for 8 weeks. NOT fun. Can't wait to continue reading your updates!

  6. I hear you...I was in the same boat! Congrats to you and I hope you're feeling better now!
