This weeks Q/A: 

What are your thoughts on alcohol? After the first trimester, I do sips here and there, half glass or little during special occasions. As long as you and your doctor are OK with it.

When are you going to announce the gender? I get this question a lot. Truthfully, I have no idea. No specific date in mind.

Do you have trouble sleeping? Due to pregnancy? No. Due to the fact that the baby monitor is a piece of crap? Yes. It’s lack of connectivity has been keeping me up at night. The worst. Can’t wait for a new one. But no, I’ve been sleeping fine and still any position I want, thank goodness. I forget how awful it is to only be able to sleep on your side.

Are you a stay at home mom now? I’m not, nor will I ever be with this blog…as it’s a full time job as well. I go back to my other full-time job in April.

Are you eating anymore in your second trimester? The beginning of my pregnancy I felt more hungry than normal, but that quickly stopped and I feel normal hunger cues.

Are your wedding rings irritating you this pregnancy? Ugh, yes. Like my first pregnancy, I am allergic to my wedding ring. This reaction happened a lot sooner, almost immediately when I got pregnant.

Be sure to send over your questions for next week!
