Yep, I’ve got a bun in this oven!! My husband and I are expecting our 2nd child!
Here are the details:
How far along are you? I am 3 months pregnant. The baby is due the end of April 2012.
How did you find out? When I was pregnant with Grace I took 3 pregnancy tests (in 1 month) before one came back positive. This time it only took 1 test. I took the test first thing in the morning and told Nate that evening. The picture above is how I told him. I drew that on my stomach and then told Nate to look at the strange mark I had on my stomach. 🙂
Are you showing yet? Yes. Yes. Yes. I feel huge and it is a little embarrassing. I know that women show faster the second time around, but knowing and liking are to very different things!
Have you had an ultrasound? No, but yesterday we were able to hear the baby’s heart beat for the first time. It was such a relief to hear that sound!
How have you been feeling? Tired. Drained. Flat out EXHAUSTED! Thankfully, that has gotten a lot better. I’m able to make it through a day now without a nap. Trust me, that is a major accomplishment. I’ve also been very nauseous. I’ve only thrown up twice, but I often find myself leaning over the sink while making supper.
Will you find out the gender of the baby? Nate and I did not find out with Grace. I loved it! We probably won’t find out this time either.
Have you told Grace? Yes, but there is no way she understands. How could she??? Grace likes to rub my belly and the other day she tried to put her pacifier in my belly button to share with the baby. So stinkin’ cute!
And because everyone wants to know, but only the bravest actually ask… Were you trying to get pregnant or was this a surprise? Nate and I were trying. Although I don’t feel 100% ready, I don’t think you ever truly are 100% ready. The timing is good. Grace will be 2.5 years old. It is time and we are very happy.
