Wow! Thank you for all the love yesterday!! We are overwhelmed with all the support and couldn’t be happier to finally share the news with you all. I will say, it was nice to have a little secret though for a while. Something that we could just share with family and friends.
I will be 17 weeks at the end of this week. We are going strong in the 2nd trimester. I have finally started feeling a tad bit better in the last few days. I had a rough few months. I had a relatively easy first couple weeks of being pregnant and then around 9 weeks it was downhill from there. I feel like there are 2 kinds of ladies in the first trimester. The ones that throw up a lot and can’t look at anything to eat and the ones that have to stuff their face every 2 seconds to stop from feeling sick. I am a stuff your face kind of girl. If I didn’t eat constantly I thought I was going to hurl. The only thing that really got me through a lot of it was running. The days I would go running were always my best days. My midwife said it was totally ok for me to keep it up so I was very proud when we ran the half marathon a few weeks back. 13 miles on 13 weeks. I have definitely tapered back milage a lot since then but working out is still something that makes me feel my best.
Being pregnant with a toddler is probably one of the hardest things ever. I thought it was bad when it was just myself last time. Ha! Funny how perspective changes. I am sure if and when we are ever pregnant with a 3rd I will think that is the hardest thing ever. I will look back at being pregnant with a toddler as a joke. There is just no time to be tired or not feel good. You kind of have to suck it up and put on a good momma face and go play with your full of life little one. It helps having an amazingly supportive husband that will let you rest when he gets home from work though. I am looking forward to getting more energy back soon.
We really are just so excited to grow our little family. To become a family of 4. We watch Rowan play with other kids and feel so much joy to be able to give her a brother or sister to play with.
