On Thanksgiving morning, I made a special announcement on Facebook and Instagram - that come this spring (end of May), our little turkey will be a big brother.
He's thrilled, or at least seems to be when lifts up my shirt, pats my tummy and says, "Hi, baby!" We'll see how his feelings change when he says hello to a real life baby that doesn't leave his house.
I am 15 weeks along with my feet firmly planted in the second trimester. Amen, hallelujah. Much like my pregnancy with Camden, the first trimester was rough and felt never-ending. I didn't have the textbook "morning" sickness, but more of an all day funky funk that got worse as the day went on. By 3:00 in the afternoon, I was pretty much done-zo and bordering on miserable.
I'm very thankful to be feeling much better and to not have my expanding, water retaining ass permanently glued to the couch.
My official due date is May 31st and we will find out whether this little bear is a boy or girl on January 5th. I think it's another boy, and until recently, Ryan was convinced that it was a girl, but is now thinking it's a boy, too.
We found out I was pregnant right before our trip to Disneyland, so were able to share the exciting (albeit very early) news with Ryan's family face-to-face. The greatest part was that Ryan's sister had some news to share with us as well - they are expecting another little boy in April! Squeeeeel!
I am now kicking myself for not blogging more about my pregnancy with Camden or just taking better notes in general about how I felt each week. The biggest difference is (clearly) that I'm chasing around a wild tornado toddler this time around, and not as able to be a couch potato. Swim lessons and gymnastics class during weeks 6-12 were really enjoyable. What super-nauseated pregnant woman doesn't like spinning in circles, tossing their kid in the air, and jumping up and down on the trampoline?
Ready or not, we're on our way to becoming a family of four!
