The First Trimester

Now that I am a few weeks into my second trimester I thought I would reflect back and share a few things from those first weeks.

This time around we were trying to get pregnant and were very very excited when we saw the + sign on the pregnancy test. A little different than the last time (when were totally completely shocked and surprised). It was a very special feeling wanting to see the positive result and then seeing it pop up!

The first trimester flew by, for the most part. I did have a lot of nausea which I didn't have with Molly so that kind of threw me. On and off all day long for about 6 weeks. Not fun. I was also extremely tired and while chasing around a 2.5 year old I didn't find much time for extra rest.

I did notice that I started to get a little bump, that is a very nice way of putting it, much earlier than I did before. I knew that was probably coming but I wasn't quite prepared for the clothes fitting tighter so early on. Maternity clothes will definitely be happening much sooner, like now.

Mostly the first trimester was just filled with excitement and "I can't believe it" feelings. We are very excited to add to our family and I am enjoying my second go round with pregnancy.

Bumpdates and more to come!

Baby # 2 (and a blog comeback)

Hello again. Its been awhile. 

Back towards the beginning of the year I decided the blog was not where I wanted to put my energy. I found myself really struggling to find things to write about. Our lives were just not that exciting, nothing crazy going on, just our daily routine (which we quite enjoy but would probably put you to sleep). So I stopped writing and just enjoyed reading. And I haven't really missed it.

BUT...

with baby #2 on the way (surprise if you didn't know!) I decided to pick it back up. While I was pregnant with Molly and during her first year of life the blog was a great way to keep track of everything and I have really enjoyed going back and reading about our life during those moments. I also, shamefully, have still not completed Molly's baby book so the blog serves as a book of sorts that documents a lot of her milestones. I don't want to short baby #2 so I have opted to document this journey like I did with M.

So here we go again, back to the blog. And fair warning...its going to be very very pregnant/baby heavy so if you aren't into that you can check out now. I will try to sprinkle in a few other things for variety sake. And of course some posts on Molly as well (who is no longer a baby, tear).

No better way to kick this off than with an official baby #2 announcement. Lets get this party started!

Someone is a very excited Big Sister!
