With Oliver I had nonstop 'morning sickness', which everyone knows is really 'sit by the toilet, all day long sickness', until about my 5th month.
I swore off having anymore children, ever, after that.
But, here we are. Just a couple weeks away from Trimester #2 with Baby #2.
Baby Walter #2
Thanksgiving Day, 2013
10 Weeks 1 Day
I think Baby Walter #2 likes me more than Big Brother Oliver did, or maybe it's just because I was a workin' lady when I was pregnant with Oliver, working the craziest hours (Midnight to 8AM, 3AM to 12PM...), but week 10 has found me surprisingly less nauseous.
My food aversions are pretty much still the same.
I'm currently living off of cooked elbow noodles with butter & shredded cheese & Papa John's cheese sticks.
I can also tolerate strawberries.
Anything else pretty much makes me wanna yack, especially coffee & meat.
** The first 4-6 weeks, of both pregnancies, I craved nothing but chili. Chili Dogs, Chili Tots, Chili Burritos...
And I don't even like chili.
I was meat free, after the chili phase, with Oliver until my 5th or 6th month.
I'm assuming this pregnancy is headed in the same direction.
And, surprise-surprise, I'm exhausted.
I wake up exhausted & I go to bed exhausted.
Hey, my heart is pumping 50% more blood!
I was just as fatigued during my first pregnancy, and, so far, having an ornery toddler boy running crazy this time around hasn't seemed to affect my sleepy-ness, or make me any more tired than I already am.
I'm showing waaaay faster this time around. I wasn't this big with Oliver until around 14 weeks.
Which is completely normal.
I mean, I did just have a baby 17 months ago!
Things That Stink ::
It stinks that we have absolutely no family out here, in Colorado, with us.
The closest family are my parents who are a good 10 hours away, in Kansas.
Camrons family is a whopping 20 hours away, in Indiana.
My biggest fear is my mom wont make it to us in time when I go into labor & Oliver will have to be in the delivery room with us!
However, the babies in our families tend to brew a little longer ... Meaning, they are usually pretty stinking late.
I'm hoping this one is late so I can schedule an Induction for about a week after our due date of June 25.
** Oliver was induced & born on June 25, 2012.
