Well… the secret’s out! Baby Bachman #2 is due in November! We are so excited and feel incredibly blessed to be adding another little one to our family. I also cannot say THANK YOU enough for all of the sweet messages, texts, comments, snaps and emails we’ve received. I am truly overwhelmed with how much love and support each of you have shown to our growing family! And now that the news is out, I can finally share more about this pregnancy so far! I’ve been getting a ton of questions about this pregnancy so I thought I’d answer them all here in a little Q+A.
How far along are you? 10 weeks!
When is your due date? November 28, which is actually my mother-in-law’s birthday! The baby is actually measuring 5 days smaller but since it’s less than a week and I had that ultrasound so early, my doctors decided not to change my due date.
How are you feeling? Oh man. Not great! Haha. This is actually the main reason this pregnancy has been so hard to keep a secret. I definitely wasn’t this tired when I was pregnant with Mason but I also wasn’t chasing a toddler around all day 😉 . I’ve also been feeling a lot more nauseous this time around. It’s been really difficult to plan my days out because I never know how I’ll be feeling later in the day. I also feel so terrible for Mason because we’ve been staying inside so much more than normal. Luckily, my husband has been a total life saver and has been really great with picking up the slack!
Cravings? Not really… There hasn’t been anything that I’m constantly craving just yet but it’s more of when I think of something that would taste good, I NEED IT NOW haha. All of the things I craved with Mason sound so terrible to me now though. Pregnancy cravings are so strange!
Food aversions? Random things here and there sound absolutely terrible to me but again, nothing that’s been recurring.
Are you going to find out the gender? Yes! I would love to be surprised but I am way too much of a planner and way too impatient! We’ll find out the gender sometime in June. A lot of people ask us if we’re hoping for a girl this time and at first, I really was. I’m still kind of rooting for a sweet baby girl but honestly, I will be so happy either way! I’d love to have a baby girl but giving Mason a brother would be so special!
Any guesses on gender? I was positive I was having a girl last time and was clearly way off so I’ve been trying not to let myself get any ideas!
Bump? Not yet! I can definitely tell my body’s changing because of how my clothes are fitting (or not fitting haha) but it’s not obvious yet. I didn’t show until 20+ weeks last time but I hear it usually pops out quicker the second time so we’ll see!
How is Mason taking the news? He doesn’t fully understand yet. We’ve been reading a lot of books and I’ve been trying to let him help me with everything but he’s just a little bit too young still. When I ask him where the baby is he touches my belly but he also goes up to Jack’s belly sometimes too sooooo… hahaha. He’ll be 3 months shy of 3 years old when the baby comes so he should understand a little more then.
Sleep? Not so great! I’ve been waking up for multiple bathroom breaks throughout the night… I definitely didn’t miss that!
Anything you’re nervous about this time? I really wasn’t nervous about much in my last pregnancy because I didn’t really know what to expect! But now that I fully know what labor and delivery is like I am a little anxious. I’m not nervous about the delivery itself but I was only in labor for 6 hours start to finish with Mason! They say that your second comes quicker so I’m terrified about not making it to the hospital on time!! My husband doesn’t have a traditional work schedule and his work is about 45 minutes away from where we live so I’m also a little nervous about going into labor while he’s not home. Also, with Mason, I was supposed to be induced at 39 weeks so I never even entertained the idea of him coming on his own. But of course, he came on his own at 37 weeks. My doctor said that this baby will most likely be early too so I know I’ll be on edge for the entire month of November!
If you have any other questions for me please let me know! I’m so excited for this chapter of our lives and still feel so blessed to be carrying another precious baby. Thank you again for all the sweet words and a very special thank you to my friend Sarah from Rose Colored Creative for capturing these images for my family! I will cherish them forever.
Thanks for reading!
