Random ideas/issues I observed:

-Heartburn is a beast. If the previous wive’s story is true, little child goes to return out wanting prefer it’s sporting a wig.

-Even although some elements of a second being pregnant are a lot simpler (like not feeling like I should learn each e-book on the planet), some elements are precisely the identical, like the fear, and praying for the infant’s security and protected arrival. The similar depth is there, and I should similar butterflies earlier than every upcoming appointment. 

-We lastly advised the household! My mother knew fairly a couple of weeks in the past -I inform her all the things- and we’ve additionally informed our mother and father. Livi advised certainly one of our cousins about it at Disneyland -we have been going to inform them anyway, and know she’s excited, so we haven’t requested her to maintain it a secret or something like that- however I needed to name my nana that night time and inform her, too. Finally, I was capable of put collectively our announcement packages:

-Starting to really feel like a semi-regular individual once more. I nonetheless really feel extra drained than ordinary, however not as very similar to I have to eat each hour or I’ll get sick. I additionally don’t really feel like a strolling drained zombie 24/S, in order that’s a winner. Even with how sick I’ve been, I love being pregnant. I beloved it final time (like, SO MUCH) and adore it simply as a lot this time. It looks like such a particular time to have your baby with you, all the time.

I imply, I gained’t kick any dessert away from bed, but when given the choice, I often select one thing cake or brownie-associated. Right now, I am loving smoothies, chia pudding, sorbets, and froyo. Banana mushy serve has been getting plenty of love round right here.

-Soup. I managed to eat some hen tortilla soup, however I can’t give it some thought an excessive amount of if it makes me gag. This one is beginning to go away, too. I was craving tomato soup yesterday and it was truly fairly tasty.
