This is my first official update of our third babe on the blog. It’s really hard to get in this space with two of my babies running around all day, plus my niece, and pregnancy exhaustion, but I am SO glad to be back. If you’ve wondered, pregnancy is what kept me away for so long. Then the Holidays came and my husband saves a lot of vacation time for then, so I usually take quite a bit of time off to focus on family.
But all good things come to an end, and I am excited to get back into the routine of blogging again.
So Tuesday was 17 Weeks and I can’t quite say it’s flying by. I actually feel like I have been pregnant forever this time. I am hoping that changes once we find out the gender and time starts to fly, because I am pretty impatient right now.
The first trimester treated me pretty well. I made it through without getting sick, just pretty nauseous in the evening. No big cravings, but lots of food aversions. I settled for cereal quite a bit. I got sick at about 15 weeks with bronchitis, a sinus infection, and a stomach bug and haven’t been the same since. It feels like I am back in the first trimester and my gag reflex is on edge. I can hardly think of food without dry heaving. It’s fun, right? I sure am hoping that doesn’t last long.
I am so incredibly excited to find out what we are having and can’t find out soon enough!
Baby: Not sure yet
Mommy: Exhausted. All the time. And gag reflex on point.
Big Brother: He wants a baby brother. He also got to go to an appointment with mommy and hear the baby heart beat. He LOVED it.
Big Sister: I can’t believe I am writing those words. She kisses baby all the time, but that’s about her understanding at this point.
Cravings: Orange Juice. Every morning.
Food Aversions: Pretty much everything at this point. I just don’t want food but want it at the same time. It’s a sticky situation.
Looking forward to: Finding out the gender! Can time hurry up please!
