Well, I said I had news to share & here it is! I am pregnant with baby #2 (#3 including my stepdaughter). We are beyond excited, and a bit frightened. This pregnancy was not a surprise like the first one, but we definitely didn’t think it would happen on the FIRST try again!!
I can honestly say that this time is completely different than the first time! The days of napping through my first trimester are over. I have to still take care of my 1 ½ year old, which seems even more exhausting than ever. Actually, everything is exhausting right now. The good news is I don’t have morning sickness…. Well, I am not throwing up all day! I am just nauseous 24/7.
We told my step daughter last weekend because I am showing already (10 weeks along), and we could not really hide it from her. My husband thought she was going to be REALLY happy. I thought she was going to be REALLY upset about it. I won! She was NOT happy about it at all. I understand, this is another baby to take attention from her in her eyes. I don’t want her to feel like she doesn’t matter, or like she doesn’t exist (which we would never let happen). In her eyes, if we are even changing our daughter’s diaper, it is taking attention from her. I don’t know how to fix that!
On top of all of this excitement, we are moving! We were going to stay put for one more year, but now we are forced to move because we need more space. We are moving closer to my dad, which I could not be happier about! The last time we moved, I was 5 months pregnant with my daughter. My husband told me we are never moving while I am pregnant again…. Oops!
Well, I am off to lay on the couch for a few. Waking up is exhausting!
