♥ Surprise Surprise ♥






So yes, it looks to be true. We are going to be having a baby. I can’t tell you how excited and surprised I am. I honestly thought I would never be able to have another child. We have been trying now for a second child for three years. I thought it was hopeless and ever though I was sad, I was finally becoming ok with the fact I would probably only have one kid.

After I had my daughter, I didn’t want anymore kids but now that she’s older and the baby fever started to kick back in, three years seemed pretty hopeless for trying. But somehow, it seemed to have happened. Don’t ask me how. I don’t even know.

So as of today I am five weeks. Not far at all and shocked that the tests would come up so big and bold for finding out this early. But from just the calculations, I will be due November 15, 2012 which is funny because that is my mom’s birthday. And my daughter’s original due date back in 2006 was November 1. So I guess I’m destined to have fall babies.

And boy, have I had symptoms like crazy. Very severe cramping to the point I’m up all night kicking and beating the couch to death because of how bad they are {yea, sadly it’s normal for me. It was like this in my first pregnancy too. Feels exactly like I’m giving birth. not fun at all. I called a doctor today and she reassured me it’s normal}.

I haven’t thrown up but have had bad nausea. I think it comes more from the pain of the cramps then really feeling sick. My body always goes into a puke mode when I’m in pain. Even with headaches.

Very sore all over my body. Especially boobs and back. And the tiredness has really kicked in. I normally have to take random breaks at work to go outside and take a nap in my car a lot for about 15 mins just to get some energy going again. It helps so it’s nice I can do that.

So I will not be doing anymore weightless things. because obviously, I won’t be losing weight. However, I will be extremely healthy this pregnancy sticking to still working out a bit and eating the way I still am.

My stomach seems so puffy already. I feel as though I have blown up. I know they say you start showing a lot sooner with your second one. I had a flat stomach the first time I got pregnant and didn’t start showing until about 4 months. But I feel I look 4 months preggo already. I think it’s just because of being bloated.

The husband still doesn’t know how to take the news. He’s still acting a bit funny toward me. I think it’s a big shock and he is trying to get used to the idea even though we planned this one, I don’t think you are ever really mentally prepared. Especially the men. But this time around he really wants a boy. I want twin girls…lol. I always have. So we shall see won’t we? I already have names picked out so whichever one it turns out to be I am prepared.

But this is the reason why I have kind of been a bit MIA lately socially. I’ve been excited, upset, depressed, happy, tired…. I’ve been wanting so bad to talk about this. I had to beg my husband to let me blog about it. He wanted me to wait, but I can’t wait. I really wanted to tell someone.
