I had to look at a calendar to figure out how many weeks pregnant I am.  (29)  Things really are different between your first pregnancy and your second.  I can only imagine what’s like when you get to your third, fourth…

I’m not sure I’ll ever make it that far.  🙂  I feel like a giant whale.  And I still have 2 more months to go.

I told Jeff I didn’t remember feeling this sore or uncomfortable (or big) when I was pregnant with Macy.  He reminded me that when I was pregnant with Macy, I didn’t have a Macy to carry around, play on the floor with, or chase after.  Good point.

Characteristics of this pregnancy thus far –

  • I got fatter a lot quicker this time around.
  • Still craving sweets.  Mostly CHOCOLATE.  We had some friends come in to town and they asked what they could bring us from the US.  At first, I didn’t answer because I always feel bad having people bring me stuff.  But they asked again.  I asked for chocolate – Twix, Almond Joys, Kit-Kat, Reese’s.  Mmm.  They brought me a variety bag.
  • This baby is a mover and a shaker.  (This could be because I’m eating chocolate)  I like it when she moves while I’m reading to Macy – it’s like she’s participating.  She moves the most at nighttime.  I’ve already started praying that she’ll be a good sleeper.
  •  So far, she has not decided to sit on my sciatic nerve for a week like Macy did.  I’m very thankful for this.

Hard to believe October is almost over.  Before I know it, I’ll be reading books to two little girls instead of one.  Sounds good to me.

  1. that’s jeff! he’s so… insightful!
    thankful you have him to remind you that being a full-time mommy AND growing a baby is hard work!
    sometimes we have so much fun with our little ones we forget how much of us is actually required to do a job well.
    …almost there!!!
