I thought I'd limit my bumpdates to once a month, so those who are interested can read the thrilling tidbits of my baby growin' and those who aren't can simply skip one post a month. I'll make them interesting though, promise!
Without further delay, here's an update on the bump in my 4th month:

Mood: Good, I think? We should ask hubs, he'd know better than me! I do get irritated easily, but I am well into my 4th month and it's hotter than a 'mug out there. You'd be irritated too if it was 108 every time you stepped outside and you had stupid full-panel maternity shorts on. For those who don't know, full panel means that they take the waist band out of your pants/shorts and replace it with nylon stretchy fabric that goes up to your boobs. It's both hot and itchy. I'm getting irritated just writing about it.
Craving: Veggies! Which actually isn't anything out of the normal, so I guess it's not a craving? I'm trying to keep the consumption in check this time around (which ALL second time moms say!) because I know just how effing hard it is to lose baby weight. Screw you ice cream, I'mma stick with my all fruit popsicle so I can save myself two extra miles of running after this baby gets here.
Missing: Wine and not being winded after a flight of stairs. But seriously, I'm missing things far less than I did when I was pregnant with Henry, and it's making this pregnancy much more enjoyable!
Movement: I've been feeling quickening/flutters since 14 weeks. Not surprised I was that early with my second since I felt them at 16 weeks with H. I've read that if you're slender, you tend to feel the baby much sooner. So, there ya go. Science explains everything!
Weight gain: 2 pounds! Not bad for a second baby and almost being done with my 4th month. I'm below the normal range, but I was with Henry too, and I caught up him by the sixth month or so. I'm sure this baby will follow suit.
Gender: We find out the first week in August! Hubs thinks it's a girl for sure. I've done many of the old wives tales, and three point to boy while five suggest girl... We shall see! People think I'm nuts for wanting to know the gender of my second. Um, hello?! If it's a boy, I literally need NOTHING. If it's a lady baby, I need to get provisions! Except a car seat. Lady baby will roll in a bright blue one. Why would I drop $200 just to get a pink one? No. Dumb. Blue it is.
Maternity clothes: I already covered this a bit in the mood section, so you clearly know that I'm in them AND my sentiments about them. I've actually been in maternity pants/shorts since I was about 12 weeks. While my regular clothes still fit, they had to ride lower around the b

Excited for: Finding out the gender! I have nursery plans I need to get going on! I know all my other Type A Planners feel me on this.
I will be doing a cute gender announcement to share the news! Pinteresting ideas now :)
Side note: Am I the only one who thinks gender reveal parties are super weird? Like, a clever image on social media is totally fun and appropriate. A full-out party with all your friends who come JUST for that occasion...? Seriously? And everyone is supposed to act "surprised" by the result? Newsflash... "I can't believe it's a girl!!" really means "Your odds of that embryo developing a vagina were 50% so... Yup. I can believe it." Also, do people have to bring gifts to these things? You mean to tell me I'm supposed to gift you at your gender reveal party AND your shower AND bring you a casserole after the baby comes? Sweet Jesus. EXCESSIVE. Am I alone here on preggo-snark island or are my feelings legit?
