It's true! Sweet baby D #2 is on the way!! :) Due date: January 7th, 2014. WOW. Every time I think about it I'm amazed that it's really happening again...that there's another squiggly little baby growing inside of me. What a precious gift...the gift of an unborn life...a life and soul that has been placed into our hands to care for, protect, love & teach. It's exciting and overwhelming all at the same time.
I'm 14 weeks which means I have made it out of the first deadmester trimester. I actually can't complain too much (even though I definitely still did), because I was one of those lucky ones that escaped any real nausea. I know, I know...you hate me. Ha. I did, however, experience severe exhaustion coupled with headaches. I haven't accomplished much of anything these past few months...except for growing a baby, of course. ;) I am just now starting to get some energy back and I am totally cool with that. Bring on the honeymoon period, babay!
My heart is over flowing. I feel a deep love and connection with the little babe inside of me already...even though he/she is only the size of a lemon. It doesn't matter though. I believe a mother's love for her child begins to grow at the moment of conception...and then just bursts at delivery :).
AAAHHH! Who will this little one be? What will they look like? Will they be as loud and stubborn as Moo?? Lol. I just can't wait to meet him/her! Speaking of meeting them, I am thinking about a natural delivery. What I really mean is that it probably won't happen, but I am giving it a thought this time around...instead of saying a flat "NO" like last time. Ha. I'd love for all of you natural delivery mamas to come in on this.
