How far along: 29 weeks

Baby's size: butternut squash, about 17" & 3.1 lbs :)

Miss Anything:  I know it's pretty early to be missing being comfortable BUT I still do.  I miss laying on my back, my back not hurting & not being tired. -.-

Best moment this week:  finding out that I don't have gestational diabetes & that baby is doing GREAT at my doctors appt this week :D

Movement:  She moves about the same amount as her brother which isn't too much BUT she does get wayyyyy closer to my ribs then he ever did :(  andddddd she kicks my bladder a lot more!  Does that mean she's gonna be super tall?!  

Food cravings: Besides a beer with lemon & salt not too much.  I miss beer or a margarita sooo bad thoughhhhh

Anything making you queasy or sick: not too much.  Same as with carter I'll randomly feel like throwing up BUT other then that I'm good :)

Maternity Clothes: ummmm mostly my pants ya, I could wear some of my older bigger regular clothes but maternity jeans are just so much more comfortable.  Besides that though I haven't had to buy any maternity shirts or anything (yet).

Stretch marks:  i have noticed more but I think they're just the ones I got with carter stretching out more.  My body is punishing me for being pregantant twice in two years -.-

Symptoms I HAVE:   Besides the ever growingn belly, the back ache, my constant insomnia, and my craxy preggers brain, absolutely none :)

Doctor’s Appointment:  I had one on Monday & from now on they're every two weeks!  I can't believe it!!  And then starts every week & every couple of days :-0  it's going sooooo fast!

What I'm looking forward to:  meeting little miss :)

Gender: GIRL!!!!  

Belly Button in or out: in

Happy or Moody most of the time: I think I'm okay in the moody department, I mean I'm sure everyone gets moody when preggers but I'm not THAT bad...haha

Sleep: ugh when?  Where?  Seems like never...I'm so tired and can never ever sleep.  Literally in bed at 2/3 every night & up at 8/9 :(

Baby's size: a LARGE eggplant!  About 16" & 2.5 lbs!!  Getting soooo big :)

Miss Anything:  I miss not feeling uncomfortable, yuck and I still have 2.5 months to go.

Best moment this week: hmmm wellllll this week hasn't been too great because my body has been hurting so bad, BUT next week I go to the doctor, AND after that I start my 2 week appts, OMG I can NOT believe how fast this pregnancy is going!

Movement:  Actually, when I started typing this she started moving around all crazy!  :D  Maybe, she knows I'm talking about her?

Food cravings: I have been eating a lot of fruit again, just like with Carter, I swear I ate a WHOLE cantaloupe the other day, downside?  Carter also loves fruit so I always have to share!

Anything making you queasy or sick: I went to take the glucose test this week, and last time I felt fine when I finished, this time however I thought I might die :(  I did take it at 7 am and hadn't slept in about 3 days, SOOOO I'm hoping that had something to do with it, AND I don't have diabetes :(

Maternity Clothes: yesssss still the same, fitting in some of my older clothes, and long shirts, but I can definitely feel everything getting tighter around the belly :)

Stretch marks:  still none I can see :)

Symptoms I HAVE:   this insomnia might be the death of me, seriously.  I just can't ever ever fall asleep, it sucks. 

Doctor’s Appointment:  welllll i already said i went to my glucose test, and that sucked, and now I have an appt next week.  Let's hope everything came out good, AND here starts my two week appts!  OH and we NEED to schedule a hospital tour VERY soon, considering we aren't having baby girl at the same hospital we had Carter and I literally know NOTHING about that hospital except where emergency is!

What I'm looking forward to:  seeing what she looks like!  I can't help but wonder if she'll look like carter, or like me?  or like her dad.

Wedding rings on or off: on pretty loose still.

Happy or Moody most of the time: Yep, still crying at anything, and everything.

Showing:  MOST definitely!  :D

Baby Laines #2-26 weeks!

Okayyy I know I should have started this ummm 15 weeks ago?  BUT whatev poor baby girl is gonna think we don't love her as much which is NOT the case I just don't sit behind a computer all day anymore -.-

Anywayyyy without further ado, her very first weekly update :)

How far along: 26 weeks

Baby's size: a cucumber & 2.2 lbs which sound just like what the dr said at our ultrasound :)

Miss Anything:  With Carter I never really missed beer too much, but with baby girl I miss having a drink soooo much more :( andddd I feel like I was more uncomfortable later last time around.  I swear I'm wobbling already & she's still gotta cook 3 more months!!  Also I miss my back not hurting -.- wahhhh I'll whine alllll pregnancy this time I don't care I feel like I'm dyingggg

Best moment this week: seeing baby girl at the ultrasound this week AND knowing she's still a girl :)

Movement:  yep!  She's different then her brother she kicks my bladder a lot and always seems to kick my right side under my ribs :) BUT she also moves a lot by my belly button NOT all crazy like other people say their babies move but she's definitely doing something in there :)

Food cravings: wellll besides a beer I think I'm good.  I randomly think omgggg that sounds sooooo good but usually forget about it so.

Anything making you queasy or sick: actually this time around my diet seems to be fine, I haven't really hated anything soo I guess not.

Maternity Clothes: yesssss I can still fit most of my shirts that fit before I was preggers but a lot of them are started to get a little short, I can still fit my pants but I'm scared to stretch them like I did with carter so I've been sticking to leggings or my maternity jeans which were literally the BEST investment I made!  Soooo comfy!

Stretch marks:  not any new ones that I could see, besides the couple I got from carter,  we shall see though I didn't see any when I was this pregnant with carter either.

Symptoms I HAVE:   My back has been KILLING me all weekend it sucks idk whyyy but it sucks.  Also, I have super duper bad insomnia :( it's 3:30 am and I'm still up -.- and It sucks when carter wakes up early good thing he likes to sleep in most days :)  alsooo I've been starting to get a little bit of heartburn nothing too bad I guess, andddd I feel full already :( wahhhhhh it's only gonna get worse haha

Doctor’s Appointment:  I had one this week because last week they had to cancel and everything looked good, I gotta take my glucose test pretty soon hopefully it's as bad as Carter's was and not worse because last time it wasn't as bad as people made me feel like it was gonna be.  AND my dr informed me that my next appt is in 3 weeks AND then they're EVERY 2 weeks already omggg I can't believe how much faster it's gone this time around?!  Am I reallyyyyy gonna have TWO kids in like 3 months?!  :O

What I'm looking forward to:  My sister, MIL & SIL are planning a baby shower for baby next month and I'm actually kinda looking forward to it, at first I didn't want one but the more I think about it the more excited I am that we are going to celebrate her :) andddd we're gonna get a 3-D u/a pretty soon so I can't wait to see what her little face looks like and to see if she looks like her brother or not :)

Gender: GIRL!!!!  (P.S. I'm pretty excited now that I'm able to shop BOTH the boy & girl sections!)

Belly Button in or out: in

Wedding rings on or off: on pretty loose but last time they stopped fitting toward the end so I'm hoping it's the same this time.

Happy or Moody most of the time: I am happy most of the time I think...randomly I know I'll get super frustrated because my body hurts so bad already :( but other then that I'm happy the way our life is going and can't wait to be a family of four :)

Sleep: once I can finally fall asleep (usually takes a while sometimes a longggg while) I stay asleep til morning thank god!  But I swear my sleep was a lot less interrupted when I was preggers with carter -.-

Showing:  haha during Christmas we were shipping at Costco and I was soooo excited that a lady said something about not wanting to hit my belly & I realized that you could kinda tell I was pregnant & not just chubby haha because I swear for awhile there I'm positive people just thought I was getting fat!  BUT just in the past couple of weeks my belly has really POPPED out!!  :-O

Life gets in the way of things we want to do with all it's CRAZINESS!!  Somehow I stopped blogging in September & never came back to it :(

Sooooo to catch up I'll give the QUICK highlights!

Day 6-Meet the Husband

If you have been following for a while you  know I did THIS looooong post about the husband not too long ago.  And sometimes not gonna lie, on days he annoys me I go back and read it and laugh at how funny he is.  P.S. go read that post, not trying to toot my own horn but it's pretty good :)

sooo now I realized that I never really talk about where he came from or any of that good stuff, so here we go.

The Husband.

I realize that I never ever call him his name on this here blog, and I don't know why.  I just don't.  BUT his  name is Victor and him and his dad have the same name but different middle name (gets confusing when I'm saying "Oh Victor did this"and his family doesn't know if I'm talking about him, or his dad).

He was born in March of 1985, and was is the oldest.  He was literally born 9 months after his parents got married, talk about a honeymoon baby.  

He had two younger brothers and a way younger sister.

sorry for the terrible pic, this was taken with someones phone.

He was born into a house in Compton (ya  I KNOW scary).  and soon moved to Whittier, because his parents didn't want their kids to grow up in or around gangs.  Great choice parents.

So once they moved to Whittier, his parents even put him into private school!  His mom talked to his teachers and decided that him and his middle brother were too small to go into the next grade so she was going to hold them back, so in 2nd or 3rd grade (I always forget) he got held back, poor guy.

Once his other brother started going to school his parents decided that it was too expensive to send them to private school so they went to regular school.

He grew up playing baseball, and had a pretty normal childhood.  

We met when I was sixteen and he was seventeen, we had both went to get our first job ever and were at the interview together and got placed at the same park (you can read more about that here)

We were friends for years while we were in high school, and I often would give him rides home :)  We were really good friends the whole time we worked together, and I secretly always had a crush on him.

We both worked at the park for two years, and then he got fired because he ruined a golf cart that we used to ride around in.  YES he's that big of a dork, doing donuts in the parking lot and hit a HUGE rock!  But once he got fired summer was almost over and I was off to college, while I was at college we were VERY good friends, every single time I came home we would hang out!  We would go to breakfast before he went to school, or lunch or to the mall, or parties wherever we just made it a point to hang out (always behind the back of his gf at the time because she HATED me).  We were friends all through college, and then he decided that he was going to become a truck driver that drives all 50 states!

He left, and I was here texting him everyday, I was going through a really bad breakup and he was my support system, reminding me that I didn't need to be with someone that didn't appreciate me :)

We talked every day while he was on the road and I would always start the conversation with "where are you today?" and he would say a different state almost every day it was a great time to remember.  

He ended up coming home very soon after that and that is when we started dating.  Originally we just went out as friends, but that was the first time EVER that we had both been single (awe even writing about that day makes my stomach get butterflies) I literally called my sister right after we kissed and said "OMG you are NOT gonna believe it!  AND she said I believe it, you guys go good together!" :)

We dated for a whole month before the husband asked me to marry him and I laughed at him and told him to get me a ring!  On our one year anniversary, he planned a huge surprise dinner, which was actually a surprise proposal, and it was the most amazing thoughtful proposal ever even if I do laugh at him because he NEVER GOT DOWN ON ONE KNEE.  :)

We got married a year and 1/2 or so later, and have been having a blast since we have really known each other.  He's a truck driver now, at the same company my dad works for and is an amazing husband and father.  I am so serious when I say that I am grateful to have such an amazing husband who gets on my nerves DAILY!  

He is the funniest guy I know, or maybe I'm the only one that gets his jokes.

Because, when we're together I'm ALWAYS laughing.

He's CRAZY, and funny and is definitely one of those guys that likes to "mess with you" just because he said it's funny.
(hahahaha totally realized he's wearing slippers in this pictures!!!)

We always have the best time together and we're definitely one of "those" couples that would much rather do things together then go on "boys/girls night out" we just enjoy each other's company and always have the best time.  

So grateful god put you in my life Husband, because we are meant to be (and yes I know how cheezy that sounds!)

Day 5-Something Most People Don't Know About Me

hmmm this is a hard one, but I definitely think that one thing that most people wouldn't know about me, is easily I can let other people's emotions affect my own.  It's a weird thing to even explain, BUT I can easily become annoyed if someone I'm around is annoyed, or sad, or happy, or whatever.  I often take on their emotions, and most of the time without wanting to.

I noticed this a while ago, when I was sitting at a table having so much fun, and there was someone sitting there with a sour face on (you know what face I'm talking about) and then you ask them "what's wrong?" and they reply "NOTHING!" when CLEARLY something is wrong with them!  WELL that will bother me, the fact that they're sitting there all mad, and the rest of us are trying to have a good time.  It will put me in a bad mood, it's so dumb but I'll later drive home and tell the husband whyyyy was so and so sitting there like that?  If they wanted to be mad they should have not came, they made me mad, in which he'll reply, "why does it matter? let them be mad" and I won't.  I can't.  so weird. but so dumb.

that's it.  random little tidbit.  and please, if you are upset about something dumb like your boyfriend forgetting your wallet at home which you don't even need.  PLEASE get over it before you come to a party that I'm attending because when you come in with your mad face I will instantly be annoyed.  :)

Day 4-The Best Day of My Life

Man, I don't even know what day to pick, because I have had so many days that I would love to relive, BUT I definitely think my most perfect "almost perfect" day was the day that me and the husband got married.

We had a very DIY wedding and the husband had to help my parents/his parents and lots of friends and family set up the reception hall the morning of our wedding while I got ready with my bridesmaids and my grandma.  We arrived at the church and the husband was LATE!!  YES, LATE!  I could tell that my dad was getting nervous that he wouldn't show up, but I know the husband he would never, he just doesn't know how to be on time to ANYTHING!  So, he finally showed up 10 minutes before our wedding was supposed to start AND he was supposed to be there 40 minutes before!  HAHA

He got there, and we got the show on the road, it was a beautiful day in November :)
I got to walk down the aisle with my dad who's AMAZING and we were laughing the whole way down so that we wouldn't cry.  Ya we're the emotional type.  P.S. my dad NEVER EVER even puts on jeans, so him in a suit was so cute :)

We had an AMAZING church wedding and everyone after the ceremony just kept telling me how in love we looked throughout the whole ceremony because really the husband was CRACKING me up!  Took a lot of pressure off of everyone looking at us.

At one point the husband was supposed to say "to put forth EFFORT" and he said "to put the F word" literally thats what he said "THE F WORD" not the actually F word but just F word hahahah the whole place was CRACKING up and at that moment I wished more then everything that we would have hired videographers!

He tried to put my ring on the wrong finger!  HAHA

If you know anything about catholic weddings you know that you take communion doing the wedding, WELL I was so confused when we got communion because during regular church you put it in your hand and you hold the glass .  Well when we took it during the wedding you aren't allowed to get it in your hand.  I opened my mouth but was confused when the priest tried to give me the cup and I was supposed to hold it, anyway the husband was laughing at me, BUT then he tried to get communion in his hand and the priest had to correct him.  It was hilarious that we both were confused and we both laughed at each other.

I was so happy to marry my very best friend!

We took some pictures at a little downtown area near our reception hall, and everyone had a great time having our pictures taken.

We had a small wedding party because I didn't want to deal with the drama of a big one, and even with just 3 of each and 2 flower girls, it was a headache at times, but I'm so glad we had everyone.

We had solidified our relationship in front of everyone, and couldn't be more happy.

We had amazing italian food....

In a tiny hall...

We laughed...

We cried...

we danced...

and we were more in love then ever...

literally was one of the best days of my life.

of course having carter was an amazing day.  but it was a much more emotional day, some that were crazy emotions that you only feel when you have a baby.  I like to think that every day I see Carter grow and learn, is a great day in my life as well :)

Day 3-My Happy Place

I had to think long and hard about this one, because I think of a lot of different places as a great places to be.

BUT I am going to share my #1 and my #2.

#1-my grandma's house.  Seriously I mentioned before in my story on day one about how much my extended family means to me.  BUT really my grandma's house just makes me happy :)

we love my grandma's house so much we all have the address tattooed this is 1/3rd of us
When I'm sick, happy, sad, frustrated, anything we always make our way to my grandmas house.  The night before my wedding I even spent the night at my grandma's house and got ready there because it just feels so comfortable and cozy.  PLUS she always makes good food!  ALWAYS!

#2-Disneyland I can't even explain it but I just love it.  We had a season pass for a couple of years and loved it, we definitely used it up.  We would go and have a drink and some dinner go on a couple of rides and go home.  It was always so much fun, and Carter has even been TWICE.  I can't wait to get our seasons passes back, but the husband and I decided that we would wait to get them until Carter is a little bigger so he can actually go on some rides and have so much fun.

OKAY I know this is a whole day late, and so lame for no pics, BUT I am catching up :D
