We had such an amazing time in Florida last week! I have lots to catch you up on and stories of our adventures, but here's one picture to get you going.
Believe it or not, it's the only picture we got of all of us...
All FOUR of us.
Yep. Another kiddo is headed our way. Estimated time of arrival: May 13, 2014!
Over the past few nauseating and exhausting weeks I've learned you take SO much for granted your first pregnancy...so...much. Like you can take a nap whenever you want. You can throw up in peace. You can sit on the couch all day and watch movies. When you want to do all of these things with baby #2, there is still baby #1 that has to be taken care of. Sooo you can't sleep whenever you want, when you barf (or want to) your toddler is right next to you and wants to see what's going on, and when you want to watch movies all day you feel bad about how much TV your toddler has actually watched in an 8 hour period of time. *sigh. Pregnancy sucks.
No joke. It totally does. Don't get me wrong- the reward, "light at the end of the tunnel" part of it all is completely worth it. Having Jillian has been one of the most rewarding and incredible things I've ever done. But getting there? Aye. And I'm a total whiner- I know, but I'm entitled. I am growing a person. You know when they say a pregnant person has a "glow" about them? I'm pretty sure my only "glow" is the reflection of the porcelain toilet seat as my face hangs over the bowl while I gag my brains out. blegh.
Oh, and here's one for the record books: I couldn't button my pants by about 9 weeks and as I learned at my first appointment today (11 weeks), I've already gained 10 pounds. This baby must be eating Miracle Grow (..or I'm eating wwaayy too much take-out..I will rule out neither assumption). Whatevs. Bring on the maternity clothes, they're more comfy anyway.
But we're excited. Tired, but excited. We should be able to find out the gender in about a month! Stay tuned...I'm off to find another snack.
