Monday Mingle : Bump Style

Strange as it seems, I like eating ice cream and cookies at ten o’clock at night.

All of a sudden, I really just want a glass of milk and I don’t even like milk.

My sense of smell has really picked up too. It’s other-worldly at this point.

It seems I have a little visitor who is causing all of these little things.

Yep, I’m preggers! Baby number two is on the way! Apparently I’m really good at keeping secrets because I’m almost five months along now. I couldn’t be more excited to be expanding my little family. Mostly though, I just feel peaceful and settled. Baby number two has brought a new calm over me and I really like it.

My little man has taken the news pretty well. He talks to my tummy and tells the baby to wake up. We’ve told him that the baby needs to get big and strong before it’s time to “wake up”. The other interesting part for me has been the whole, “nothing to wear” thing.

I didn’t wear any maternity clothes the first time I was pregnant and I’m not sure I’m going to get away with that this time. It seems I was showing almost immediately. I expect my tummy to get bigger this time than it did before so I may need to look into a small maternity wardrobe. We’ll see.

We took these pics after church this weekend. I’m wearing a dress I got years ago from H&M. I love it! It works well for my growing tummy too! (#Winning) The ring is from The long necklace is from Forever 21 and the other is a gift… not sure where he got it from.

Stay tuned for the ever growing tummy and feel free to send me lots of words of wisdom for being a mommy of two!!!

I’m linking up this week with Glamamom, Momtrends and BonBon Rose Girls for the Monday Mingle.

I’m also linking up with the Pleated Poppy!

    So glad you stopped by! CONGRATS to you…I am not sure how you kept it a secret through 5 months…
    I HAD to announce this week at 12 1/2 weeks because I do so many outfit shots and the tummy popped alot earlier this time for me too…My blogging buddies would have been kind, but sure would have wondered if I had eaten one too many bowls of pasta, lol.

    Best to you throughout the pregnancy and I LOVE MY Bellaband so far.

    Many women are like they don’show their pregnancy until after 4 to 5 months. Enjoy your eating binges now while you can.
