Raylan has wanted a sibling for awhile now and I’ve been hesitant as I wanted to figure out certain things in my life. Raylan watched an episode of Daniel welcoming a baby sister Margaret and he has wanted the same thing since. This pregnancy is a surprise but not unplanned. Things are not how I would like them to be right now but everything is going according to His plan. Raylan is super excited and convinced he’s having a little sister and has started picking out things for her. This is the beginning and I cannot wait to share this journey with you all. I am currently 8 weeks pregnant and I know people usually wait longer to announce their pregnancy but why wait?
These are the vitamins that I am currently taking. I prefer gummies over pills just to make my life easier. When I was pregnant with Raylan, I rarely took my vitamins and ate a lot of fruit and leafy greens. I am not sure what I will do this time around.
I have nausea and the only thing that is helping is grapefruit every morning. I can get through the day if I have my grapefruit.
I have the first pictures of the baby. When Raylan first saw the ultrasound, he was like I want to go to outer space too. Raylan is the most excited but I know he’s still unsure about everything happening. Of course the ultrasound looks like nothing right now but we were able to capture fetal movements during this ultrasound which makes this photo so special.
With this pregnancy, I realized I love being a mommy but I hate being pregnant. I am tired all the time and barely get anything done. It’s hard with a toddler and now that he knows about the new baby, he is very clingy and I can’t do things without him on me all the time. My emotions are out of whack 24/7. I am starved 24/7 and I hate that I can never get enough to eat even though it seems that I eat all day long. And the nausea can be a bit overwhelming but it’s manageable. This is different than when I was pregnant with Raylan and I am just going to buckle up and enjoy the ride. I am due February 13th, 2018 and I cannot wait.
