Baby #2 – Eleven Weeks

First things first. A few weeks back I wrote a post about angry pregnant women wanting to kill you. A little harsh. I think I may have angered some pregnant women and also terrified the rest of you in the process. I PROMISE on my shoe collection that I will never harm a hair on your pretty little heads if you say anything about my baby/pregnancy/gas belly (because again, we know that all it really is at this point). It was all in fun, but I still want to say I’m sorry to the nice pregnant ladies and to everyone else who may be hiding from me under their couches at this very moment. xo

Now let’s get to business.

I  have an ultrasound today and there’s a possibility I may see a penis nub. You know how much this concerns me. Still, I’m really excited about being able to see the baby again because last time I was only able to get 2 ultrasounds the entire pregnancy and it was really disappointing. Pregnant ladies love their ultrasounds. It’s true.

Symptoms this week:

  • More barfing. Actually, I should be clear about this… it’s not actual throwing up and more like just a chronic case of the dry heaves, which I fully believe was something conjured up by an evil witch doctor who lives in the swamps. There’s no satisfaction of a job well done or even a flush! Just a lot of disturbing sounds coming out of your mouth.
  • Terrible, horrible, no good, very bad skin.
  • Ravenous hunger and odd cravings. Most people know I’m weird about my meats. Like, I basically only eat white meat chicken after it’s been dissected and I know for sure it has nothing questionable in it. I found a vein once and… let’s just not discuss my reaction. Anyway, I’ve been craving roast beef. I DON’T DO BEEF.
  • Sexy dreams involving ugly actors I am in no way attracted to in a conscious state. I’ve been debating on whether to take you all there and I’m not quite sure I (or my family who reads my blog) would be all that comfortable with it, so for now I’ll just leave it to your imagination. (Skeet Ulrich. JUST NO.)
  • I love you, Justin.

  1. Haha. Uggh I never threw up with Levi, but with Rian I got quite nauseated in the beginning and even later on with certain smells. The smell of cooked frozen peas made me hurl into our kitchen trash can. Imagine throwing up and your toddle trying to close the lid on your head. Not fun. Also both pregnancies I had the hardest time brushing my teeth, maybe my gag reflex was being tweaked or something…and​ again with Rian I always threw up in the middle of brushing my teeth. Which made me have to keep brushing my teeth, which in turn made me want to keep throwing up.

  2. Bekah, SAME HERE! Like Mexican food for some reason… all that cheese, asdlakfjsdl;kgj​lKristy, at least Edward is actually good looking, hahahaAngela, thanks so much. But yeah, any time you need a baby fever cure, just email me. I have even more stories that aren't blog-safe, hee

  4. I do the same thing with brushing my teeth! Every single time!! And once, Maddie saw me throwing up in the kitchen sink (gross, I know) and she got all concerned and hugged my leg while I was hurling. lol

  5. When I was pregnant with my son, my 2 year old would be standing right next to the toilet trying to see what I was doing. Then one day, I caught her in the bathroom making gagging sounds over the toilet bowl. When I asked her what she was doing, she said, "I be like Mommy!"

  6. P.S. True that to the sexy dreams! I had one about ….hehe….my Edward….at least it is someone I have real day life fantasies about anyway….Cody doesn't know about these dreams yet….'tis probably better that way!

  7. Carly & Anh: Thank you so much, ladies!! Only another hour!

    Danielle: Bahaha, I know. It’s bad. I just feel so cheesy smiling!

  8. You look really great in that dress! And yay for baby bump – no matter if it’s just gaz or not. It looks cute. :)

    Good luck on your appointment later!

  9. You are too dang cute! And hilarious.

    I, too, share a weird relationship with meat. I tend to stay away from it altogether because it’s just pretty embarrassing to pick through it at every meal.

  10. I didn’t think your “preg. women will kill” post was offensive. Quite informative and funny if you ask me!

    Penis nub or not, good luck! I’m sure everyone is waiting on pins & needles!

    (ps-I used to have a big crush on Skeet-don’t let that change any good opinions you have of me)

  12. I’m 28 weeks (not to brag or anything…) and chicken still has to be throughly checked over to make sure nothing weird is going on. Early on my mother in law made chicken enchiladas and I got a bone. I still can’t stop thinking about it. And I totally feel you on the heaves, I had them for months but you can’t wear them as a badge of honor like real throw up.

  13. i totally wanted a boy (and got one) but i still cannot change a diaper without getting peed on.
    let me tell you… pee comes out with a force.

  14. You are so, so gorgeous! Seriously, it’s not fair that you’re pregnant AND you look that great!

    I am the exact same way about meat. Anything questionable- double yuck!

    And, I totally know what you mean on the weird dreams. :)

  15. I love your dress!!
    And I like your hair back, I think it looks so pretty like that! I feel like I’ve commented on that before? Welp, if so, I must really like! ha. You look so cute, I was reading this on my phone earlier today and showed the pic to my coworker and said “isn’t my friend the cutest pregnant lady!?” and she replied “oh gosh, she’s adorable! She should be a pregnancy model” LOL!

  16. Skeet Ulrich? Really? What, have you been watching back seasons of Jericho or something??? (um, pretend I don’t know that he was actually on that show….what? Jericho, never heard of that show?)

    But seriously….DO TELL.

    PS. You are a really effing cute pregnant lady!

  17. Ummm… pregnant women are scary, angry, and will kill you, I’ve been one, I know :) So, no offense taken. Though I have met some of those freakish nice and happy pregnant people, but I think they were somehow sent from an alien planet because there’s no way they’re real.
    Anyway, you look adorable, and I get so excited for the weekly updates!! You make me want to be preggo again, but for now, I’ll just live through you :)

  18. Dry heaving is the worst. The absolute worst. I dry heaved in the shower every single morning for a month straight.

    You look super cute. :)

  19. Good luck on your apt. Boys are wonderful. My first is a girl and my second is a boy. It’s so much fun. Both genders can be frustrating but in different ways. I love that boys…well at least my little boy…wants to have fun all the time and I never get drama from him. And having this sweet little boy just adore you is so awesome! I’m totally wrapped around his finger, just as my husband is wrapped around our daughter’s finger. Anyway, if it’s a boy–don’t be afraid.

  20. I thought that post was hilarious, personally. And rather true. Pregnant women can be rather monstrous, that’s all there is to it. :)

    Ok… YOU ARE SO CUTE IT KILLS ME. Seriously, Morgan, you look amazing and wonderful and beautiful!! Looking at your belly pictures almost makes me want to be pregnant again. Except, there’s no way I would look like you… I did say “almost”. :)

    I hope you feel SO much better very very soon! blerg. poor dear.
