I'm pregnant! Baby #2 will be arriving January 2019 and I am still trying to wrap my head around this news! I've got ALL the feels…
Happy…my first initial emotion when I think about having another baby is happy. Bringing another life into this world that is half me and half Ryan (and now part Savannah, too) is the greatest gift! Savannah brings so much joy into our lives; I can only imagine how another child will magnify this.
Scared…can I handle 2 kids physically, emotionally, mentally, financially? Wait, I have to go through labor and delivery again?! They say my baby is “perfect” and “healthy” but what if they discover something after he/she is born?
Anxious…after Savannah was born, my life was turned upside down. For several weeks I thought I was never going to go to the grocery store ever again- every day-to-day activity seemed impossible. Will it be like this the second time around or will I have more courage to face the monotonous elements?
Excited…of course we’re excited! Why do people feel the need to ask you if you’re excited after you tell them you are pregnant? Really?! Little baby clothes, snuggles, and coos- bring it on!
Sad… for Savannah who will no longer be an only child. Savannah is my best friend and my little buddy, we do everything together. Now my time and attention will be divided and I can’t stand the thought of her feeling jealous or left out.
Grateful…I hear too many stories of infertility struggles, unhealthy little ones, and baby tragedies. You better believe I thank my lucky stars every day for being able to experience this journey!
Giddy…ahhh, I’m having a baby!!!
Exhausted…I’m already tired from being a full-time mom and a full-time employee. How will I continue to do this with limited sleep? How will I “sleep when the baby sleeps” with a toddler running around?
Overwhelmed…more diapers, more clothes, more space, more time, more money, more worry, more love, more mouths, less sleep…How does one get out of the house on time with 2 children anyway?
Ecstatic…bottom line, we are ecstatic!
I am 15 weeks along already and feeling great! With Savannah, I was very nauseous for about 16 weeks and had minimal energy. With this pregnancy I was slightly nauseous and tired weeks 5-8, but that quickly disappeared and it has been smooth sailing ever since (I hope I didn't just jinx myself). All of the ultrasounds and bloodwork have been "perfect" so far and I am grateful for that. We will be finding out the gender next month...what do you think it is?!
