We're Having a BABY!!!
My husband, daughter, and I will welcome a new member into our family around March 3, 2013. We are extremely excited, but I will definitely be glad when this 1st trimester is OVER!!! I would like to apologize for my absence these last couple of weeks. I have felt SO BAD (and still do) that I have barely gotten off my couch since the beginning of July.
My first pregnancy was wonderful! I had a little nausea and was extremely tired a lot, but that was it. It was a breeze!!! Crazy me assumed I would have this awesome pregnancy experience the second time around too. Boy, was I wrong.
I have had everything, but vomiting. Nausea, dizziness, loss of appetite, indigestion, heartburn, lack of focus, motion sickness, no energy at all, and above all... just the complete icky feeling. I am 8 weeks right now, and I sure hope I see a little light at the end of the tunnel soon. I am not one to sit around all day and do nothing, but that is what I have been forced to do these last couple of weeks. I have even had several emotional meltdowns because of it!!! I do not like to be dependent on others and that is what I have been forced to do.
I am lucky that I can lay on my couch and rest during this first trimester, but something has to give because I have to go back to work in the next two weeks. I want to be ready for the new school year and being in this state of mind I'm just not. So, I am hoping God works with me within the next couple of weeks.
Please bare with me through the next couple of weeks as I gradually work through this part of my pregnancy. I have so many projects that I am in the middle of completing and can't wait to share them with you. So, please don't unlike my blog or feel that I am slacking on posting because that is not the case at all.
Now, I am sure you are wondering if I want a boy or a girl... Well, this little mamma does not care. I just want the baby to be healthy. But, I think Team Blue is dominating this round... except with my daughter who is determined to have a baby sister.
Even though this blog isn't really about baby making, I will definitely share some of my baby moments with everyone because I have to get a room ready, organize, and prepare for baby #2's arrival.
Up next... I will share how we told our parents about their soon-to-be grandchild.
