Are you in there baby?

"Can we hurry up to the ultrasound to see if a baby is actually in there?"...

These were among the first words I said to the OB yesterday..a little aggressive eh?


I have a feeling that pregnancy #2 is going to be way different than the first. I would never have believed I was actually pregnant if it weren't for the 4 positive tests I took in the last month and the fact that I haven't had my lovely friend since December. That's why I was so anxious for my appointment yesterday. I felt so nervous and scared. I thought they were going to stick that awful long rod where the sun don't shine..and find nothing. Just an empty uterus. But...it wasn't empty at all, not one bit. It is currently the warm & cozy home of my kidney bean sized baby..with a pounding heartbeat.

I felt instant relief & all my worries flew out the window. I explained to the doctor, the same doctor who delivered Saige, that my symptoms have been so different this time around. At 8 weeks last time I was carrying around a bag of saltines & ritz crackers because I felt so nauseous. I was coming home from work and taking a 4 hour nap. I was also inhaling quarts of Rita's water ice on a daily basis. Now given, I have a 15 month old, so those afternoon naps are no longer a possibility as i'm constantly kept on my toes. But my level of exhaustion is nowhere near where it was the last time and i'm not hugging the toilet after drinking apple juice. Granted with Saige, I only got sick actually once, but I did feel nauseous for most of the day. This could all come back and bite me in the ass if I wake up tomorrow feeling like I was just run over by a truck.  Maybe this means it's a boy? Or maybe I need to go knock on wood because I just screwed myself talking about how good I feel..

Either way..my heart skips a beat just looking at the little kidney bean that will be joining our family in September.

Happy Friday!
xoxo

I'm glad you are feeling well. Don't question it, just enjoy it. Although, that's easy for me to say ... because despite how wretched I have felt with both pregnancies, I always count it a blessing because I KNOW something is going on in there. In early pregnancies, the days that I feel a bit better? I worry myself sick. I can't wait to follow your journey to baby #2!

I like this post! Very warm and fuzzy! I remember that moment of relief too. Not much else that's better than hearing that heart beat.

I'm so happy that it went well for you! I'm 20 weeks with #2 right now, and this pregnancy is way different. I keep getting worried too!

Randomly blog hopped here, and wanted to say congrats on the baby! I had two under two (21mo apart) and my youngest was born just a few days after your little cutie pie! It's a wild ride having them so close together, but the older they get the closer they become good buddies. It's pretty precious to watch. Best of luck, Mama!
