I’ve been waiting to share with you our exciting news! We are having a BABY! Yep, that’s me (and Jax playing with my belly button)…I’m in my 13th week already. We didn’t exactly plan for number two to be on its way so soon, but our little ones will be around 27 or so months apart…which is perfect. 2011 has been the most eventful year of my entire life! To be honest, I’m getting used to not knowing what is going to happen next.
I’m going to miss my body, it’s taken a year and a half to get it back to normal. There is just so much change that happens during pregnancy. We’ve been trying to stay pretty active…taking long walks and riding our new bikes. We played kickball every thursday this summer, which was so much fun. Hoping to join a soccer league maybe next year.
Lately I’ve been extremely emotional, I’m worried I may have prenatal depression. I don’t remember being like this with Jax. Although I haven’t been sick one time yet, which is nice. But I’d almost rather be throwing up then struggle with other stressful symptoms like, crying out of the blue, freaking out over silly things, having trouble sleeping or just being angry…please hurry second trimester, this part is not fun! On top of those things I’m trying to keep up being a work from home mom, which I love, but I am learning all of the ups and downs quickly. I am also trying to balance being a newlywed and keep working on our relationship, especially through all the changes. Its been hard but I have faith we will make it through as long as I have his support. Any advice would be appreciated.
I just cant believe our little peanut is going to be a big brother! Well, bring on the cocoa butter, ginger-ale and vanilla pudding…and let the midnight water chugging continue!
