So, I said I would tell you what has been going on with me and now I feel fairly comfortable doing it.
I am pregnant! Without a second surgery! Yay!
It still seems surreal.
I am currently 8 weeks along and everything is looking great. Fearing another miscarriage, I have had two ultrasounds already. I saw the heartbeat yesterday at the doctor's office and it was strong. The due date is September 17th! A Virgo!
This, besides my aunt's heart surgery, is the other reason I haven't been around much. I used to write my posts and read my favorite blogs during my son's naps. However, now when he naps, I have to take a nap, too. I am exhausted!
This pregnancy is turning out to be very different from when I was pregnant with Max. With this pregnancy, I have morning sickness ALL DAY. I was never sick with Max. I have absolutely no appetite and all I can stomach is dill pickles, chocolate ice cream, and gingerale. Really healthy, I know. Yesterday, the doctor gave me a prescription for anti-nausea pills, which I am super stoked about. Hopefully, I will be able to eat again.
Also, I am extremely tired with this pregnancy and very short of breath. I don't remember being this tired last time. Of course, it could be that I am chasing a hyperactive toddler all day on top of being pregnant. Could have something to do with it.
I also have a lot of abdominal pain with this pregnancy because of all the scar tissue from previous surgeries. This sucks. It really hurts. The doc said it will only get worse as my uterus grows. Super duper.
My husband and I are so thrilled that our son will have a sibling. We wanted him to have a sibling more than anything because we both had siblings who became our closest friends. My son is a Leo and the new baby will be a Virgo. I already know these signs get along because I am a Leo and my best friend is a Virgo. We've been friends for twelve years.
Well, I have many stories already to tell you about my experiences the last few weeks, and as soon as I can find the energy, I will write them! I am looking forward to that second trimester when I have more energy. I miss reading all your blogs. I will read and write soon!
