The Beginning

Right now I am 12 weeks and 1 day pregnant with baby number 2. Stephanie, (baby number 1), is 13 months old. Everyone always says that you don't have time with baby number 2 for things such as photo albums, pregnancy journals, baby books, etc. While I will do my best to maintain such things with this little bean, I figured that starting a pregnancy blog was a great start, and a way to document this special time in our lives.

I only have about 2 more weeks left in my first trimester. Luckily it hasn't been too hard for me, although I've been much more nauseaus with this one than with Stephanie. And while I havn't had any actual morning sickness, I have been extremely exhausted. I started wearing maternity pants exclusively today. I tried to zip up a pair of regular jeans, and they were just too uncomfortable. I showed early with Stephanie, so i'm not surprised that i'm already showing with this one, too. I also started taking "baby bump" pictures at week 10, like I did with my 1st pregnancy. One of the major differences i've noticed this time around is that I don't have the same amount of time to devote to the pregnancy mentally. Which is actually a good thing I think. When I was pregnant with Stephanie, that was the one and only, singular thought on my mind. This time, I'm so busy chasing after an active toddler that I can't always dwell on the fact that i'm pregnant. I think this makes me less anxious about everything, and is making the time go by faster. I feel like it was just yesterday that I got that positive reading on the pregnancy test, but it's already been 8 weeks! In 7 weeks we should be able to find out the gender, and we're very excited. I go back and forth about what I think it's going to be. At first I was completely convinced it was a boy. Then, after the first ultrasound I started to think it was a girl. So who knows? I was convinced Stephanie was a boy, and clearly that turned out not to be true. So we'll see!

Well, it's 9:30 at night right now, my typical bedtime. It's been a long, busy day of celebrating (my best friend Brandi's little boy Brayden turned 1!), and I think I need to relax in front of the TV for a little while.
