If you missed it, I made the announcement here.
We are now just over 7 weeks pregnant with number 2!
We really couldn’t be more excited! We’ve been ready for this since September.
Just a few weeks ago, I was telling the ladies in my Bible Study group how hard it has been to wait on God’s timing when it felt right for our timing.
And then, two weeks later, in the morning just before Bible Study again, I took a test and learned about number 2!
I’ve already been asked so many times how I’m feeling, even since we just announced it on Friday.
I love how caring and attentive people are of pregnant women. It always shocks me. 🙂
So…how have I been feeling?
Mostly pretty good.
Tired. REALLY tired. A little nauseous here and there. Had a hard time grocery shopping the other night. Tired. I want naps. My chest hurts. HUNGRY. I’m always starving. And I go to bed now at 10 pm instead of 2:30 am. I wake up now around 6 every morning, instead of 9:30 or 10 and have to use the bathroom IMMEDIATELY. I always get back in bed, hopeful of falling back asleep for a few hours… But within about 15 minutes, I realize that there’s no way I will be able to fall back asleep because of how deeply my stomach is now growling. I’m tired often. And when I’m not sleeping, I’m starving.
That’s how I feel. 🙂
But I am so thankful to have these feelings again.
So thankful to have another little Blessing growing inside of me!
Just tonight, I was driving home from a friend’s house and thinking about Ezekiel.
I thought about his little dark beady eyes in the first day or two of his life.
I thought about how quiet and calm he was.
I thought about his bright blue, sparkling eyes now.
I thought about how energetic, hilarious, FUN little guy with a huge personality he is now.
And I thought about how on day one of his life, I would never in a million years have guessed how incredibly awesome and FUNNY he would be at 15 months.
And I thought about how we’ll have one more little person to love on and watch bloom into another amazing human being. What a fun ride. 🙂
The night before we found out that we were pregnant, I sat at the kitchen table eating a bowl of some leftover Thai food. Skyler came over and dipped his fork in and I told him that I planned on eating all of it, so back off! 🙂 He said, “no way, that’s a huge bowl, you can’t eat all that! You oinker!”
Don’t ever call a woman an oinker.
Even if she IS.
Boy howdy, that made me mad!
I told him to NEVER call me an oinker and HOW rude of him!
He immediately retaliated with, “you MUST be pregnant! You would never get offended at me calling you an oinker! Go take a test!”.
I told him I would in the morning. 🙂
I guess my husband knows me better than I know myself.
At that time, I didn’t feel pregnant at all.
Definitely feel pregnant.
I’m praying that this is an easy first trimester, like it was with Zeek.
With Zeek I had only 3 weeks of nausea that really wasn’t too bad.
I never once threw up. (Until labor, that is).
This is definitely different the second time around because I cannot nap and lounge as I please.
I was just having a discussion with my friend Rachel about how Skyler is so gracious with me and NEVER complains about our laundry pile and never gets on my case about it.
Until this week….
He complained about not having underwear and socks.
I haven’t done laundry in a week.
I barely made food for anyone this week.
I’ve sat on “my spot” on the couch more than usual.
My house is a wreck.
For the first time, I don’t care.
I care, but not enough to get off my sick butt.
I’ve been busy with making stuff for Wood & Thimble, which I launched just a 7 days ago.
We have another paintball event this weekend to prepare for.
I’m praying Ezekiel is a good boy this week and lets me get stuff done, with the little energy I do have.
Cuz, mama’s got lots to do!
Sorry this post is all over the map.
That’s how I feel in my brain right now.
So. Much. To. Do.
And I don’t usually feel that way, even though we are constantly busy people.
But this week…I feel it.
Say a prayer for me to get everything done!
And that our event goes smoothly this weekend!
Hope you all had a fantastic Monday. 🙂
