Holy Bump + Green Jeans, Finally!

I. Have. Popped. At 14 weeks. Whaat? Over night I got HUGE. And it's freaking me out a bit. Monster baby in there? I'm thinking so. Thinking this one will try to beat his brother's 8 lb 9 oz and 22 inches long (yah I grow long babies) 

How far along: 14 weeks and 2 days
Size of Baby: Naval Orange!

Total Weight Gain: Last appointment I had lost 3 lbs- and I think before that (not sure starting weight) I had probably gained a few lbs before feeling sick,  so I think at this point I was even. But now my appetite is mostly back so I'm SURE I've started gaining! Should probably start weighing myself. Blah. 

Maternity Clothes: I've bought maternity jeans now, and ordered maternity leggings- otherwise all non maternity. Going to need to invest in some bigger bra's though- have had a few 'nip slips' around the house when I was just wearing a bra and pants. 

Gender: Find out next Thursday, but who are we kidding. It's a boy. Ostransky men do Not produce females. 

Movement: I think I've felt some twinges but supposedly that's not possible yet, so I guess not yet?  
Sleep: It's getting better. My insomnia is gone. Only waking up once a night to pee- able to stay up past 8 PM now! 
What I miss: Not being fat. A glass of wine would be nice. But at this point I'm not missing too much! 
Cravings: bagels, hot pockets (gross) and au gratin potatoes (Which I happen to make the best, so that's a plus!)
Symptoms: I get out of breath folding laundry or putting dishes away- SO freaking weird. I didn't have that at All last time. But anytime my arms are raised I feel dizzy/out of breathe and my heart races. Almost feels like what a panic attack would feel like? 
What I’m looking forward to: Our 3D/4D ultrasound next Thursday to find out (confirm) that this baby is a boy.

In other news..I finally wore THE Green Jeans. The ones I ran all over Stockholm looking for this summer. Sadly, it was my first and last time wearing them. At least for the next year I'm sure. I could no where Near button them. Sad sad day. All my other jeans button just fine, but these were a bit small to begin with, hello have you SEEN how tall and skinny most Swedes are? I'm lucky I could squeeze my booty in them this summer NOT 3.5 months pregnant. But I decided I MUST wear them once. So with the help of my beloved belly band- I wore them. All day. 

I know it's probably hard to believe, but I'm thinking these stripes made me look even bigger than I am. Or maybe it's the pictures- because these make me look like I'm about 7 months pregnant. Oh wells, what can ya do? To be fair- I'm only like half this size when I wake up in the morning? So odd. 

And for a comparison..this is me at 14 weeks last time around. Just a TAD difference. 

Green Jeans: bought in Stockholm in June
Shirt: bought on the island of Gotland, Sweden in June
Boots: Bought in Karlstad, Sweden January of 2009. 

Just now realized everything in this outfit is from Sweden!

Momma Go Round


  1. You can totally see the difference! You are showing so much more this time!!

  2. I had that weird dizzy/out of breath thing with my first pregnancy. I think I remember my midwife telling me that your lungs bring in more oxygen during pregnancy and that can kind of make you feel that way. Or I might have just made that up. Either way...I got bigger WAY faster during my 2nd pregnancy, but ended up gaining a lot less weight..weird!
