Well… the secret is out. We’re expecting!
Keeping the secret was killer this time around. So, needless to say I am beyond thrilled that I can finally talk about our new little bundle on the way!
You know who else is excited?
Now that I am officially in my second trimester (thirteen weeks!) I am finally feeling “normal” again. Honestly, the first trimester of pregnancy (save the last few weeks of feeling like a baby might fall out of your butt any minute) is by far and large THE WORST part of pregnancy. You would think I would have been prepared the second time around. After all, I know what to expect the first trimester.
It hit me like a ton of bricks. I was exhausted, nauseous, and even more exhausted. Did I mention I was really, really tired?
Anyway, during my first pregnancy things were a bit different. I was able to nap whenever I wanted. I didn’t have a toddler to chase around the house and entertain all day. It was a whole heck of a lot easier! These days nap time is harder to come by! And I’ve got a bone to pick with anybody who dares say “Just nap when the baby naps!”
Thankfully, those first trimester feelings don’t last long, and just as you start to feel better you also get to announce to the world with joy that you are expecting! Maybe that is why everyone is so surprised by how hard the first trimester is, because you never get to hear about it!
I am so thrilled to be able to share the news, post updates, and just gush about how excited the whole family is. It makes everything that much more “real”. With my first pregnancy I was constantly reading up on “what to expect” and what size fruit the baby was each week (p.s. baby is a kiwi this week!). This time around, I just don’t have the time to remember to keep up! In a way it has been nice. There is so much less anxiety that way. Not worrying about every little thing. Which I definitely am knowing for doing! I honestly have moments I forget I’m pregnant. Like that time a few weeks ago I ate sushi for dinner. OOPS! Turns out I’m fine
All in all things are going great! I am a bit of an emotional roller coaster, which I suppose is normal. I’ve also been seriously craving pickles! I mean SERIOUSLY.
Oh and I’ve started baking again…
Until next week!
