Baby #2, to arrive January 2015!
I am about 16 weeks along and finally feeling a bit back to normal. It was hard for me not to share much sooner, mainly for the fact that I wanted to complain my little heart out about how incredibly sick I was. Like, I spent 2 full weeks curled up in fetal position on my couch, just praying that I wouldn’t throw up. Poor Lyla. She actually handled it really well (and watched way too much TV). I finally figured out a medicine and food regime that worked well enough that I could function, and once I hit 14 weeks I felt much better. I still have waves of sickness and I am not totally in love with eating, but I am just thankful I am not back at 6-8 weeks. That was miserable.
(I have been dying to cry and whine about that…so I finally got it off my chest! I am super thankful for a healthy baby growing inside me and I know that sickness is just part of the territory. So I promise not to mention it again. First trimester was just not my favorite…)
When I was pregnant with Lyla, I took weekly photos and blogged about how I was feeling, etc. (on a different blog). The idea of that is laughable this time around, but I hope to post updates here and there, when I can, so as not to give this baby the shaft.
Lyla is excited, and insists she wants only a SISTER. We will see… Andrew thinks it is a boy. My best guess would be a girl. Yes, we are definitely going to find out ahead of time!
