Baby #2!

That's right!  We are having another baby!  (First off I have to say that I left Penelope's stocking within her reach before the paint was dry and that I'm really proud that I came up with this idea all on my own!)
Baby #2 is due around June 20th.  We are both hoping for a boy but I know it would be great for Penelope to have a little sister 20 months younger.  And I have all the clothes for a girl already. 
I was 6 weeks when I found out I was pregnant.  It was two days after we got home from visiting family in Ohio.  The last few days before we left I noticed my belly button was sticking out more than usual and I thought "Oh no!  I'm getting so fat from eating out every night!"  I didn't think I was pregnant, just fat.  So I was really surprised that I was pregnant.  But super happy, because we had only been trying for about a month if that. Since I knew I could be as early along as 3 weeks, I waited a while to make a doctor's appointment because I wanted to be at least 6 weeks along so I didn't have an ultrasound with no heartbeat and freak out.  (Found out Oct 25, apt was  Nov 12)  I had an ultrasound the next week and it was determined that I was 9 weeks 5 days.  I was very happy with that. 
I keep forgetting that I'm pregnant because I'm not sick like I was with Penelope.  I don't think my belly is growing very quickly either with is fine with me because I gained 50 lbs. with her and after losing it all, I'm going to be more aware with this pregnancy.  But I have no energy.  I think that's my only symptom. I can't make it through the day without a nap.  But I also am up sometimes 645-1130 and I've always been the kind of person that needs my sleep. 
Speaking of sleep, I could go on and on now that I can finally talk about it!  But it is after 11pm and I'm tired so night all!
How far along? 11 weeks 3 days
Maternity clothes? nope
Sleep: not affected by pregnancy.
Best moment this week: announcing baby #2!

  1. "nothing comes to mind" haha I couldn't help but think of The Princess Bride.
    also, I cannot believe you are almost out of your first trimester because I don't really think of you being pregnant either!
    - your sister
