15 weeks already as of this past Sunday!
Looking nice and bloated. I haven’t weighed myself since my last doctor’s appointment and I don’t think I will see the scale again until my appointment on Wednesday, but I think I am doing pretty good at keeping my weight gain in check. That being said, my coworker introduced me to Wegman’s ice cream and now I am hooked, so we will see how that goes (Thanks Ash).
I’ve talked about how this pregnancy is different from my last in all the physical aspects but I haven’t actually written down to the emotional differences. I feel sort of ashamed or guilty I guess is a better word for it, but unlike last time this pregnancy is not the focal point in my life. Don’t take that to mean that I am not excited for another little bebe or that I am unhappy in any way, I just mean that there are so many things going on right now (hello toddler life) that I don’t have the energy or the time to focus on how excited I really am about it. I think it is important for me to do these weekly posts so that it focuses my attention on this baby and this pregnancy, even if it is only for a short time each week. Does that make me a bad person or is that normal?
Also I am very nervous to have a toddler and newborn at the same time. I know we will be fine, but the unknown is always terrifying. I just remember back to when we brought Liam home for the first time… let’s just say that neither Erik nor I did well with little to no sleep. To be honest I am more worried about the baby waking Liam up than anything else. Patti gave me a great suggestion that I think we will try. She said her sister in law puts a noise machine outside the door so that it blocks out the outside noise. We will give that a try to see if it works. If anyone else has any suggestions please send them my way!
