Here we are. Another week. Another blogging brain fart. I just truly have no idea what to write about. Nothing of substance, anyways. I can blame that on pregnancy again, though, can't I?
I feel like our life is just in limbo right now. Waiting waiting waiting through separations and then waiting for the big one. We truly are trying to live up every single moment together... and I DO VERY MUCH SO find myself sitting back, just staring at him and appreciating the small stuff (how peaceful he looks while he's sleeping or how much fun he and Andrew have playing together. I try to memorize their synchronized laughter) but, at the same time, it's hard to push the worry and the dread out of your mind.
LOOK WHAT I DID. This was supposed to be about my pregnancy. A small update of sorts. But there you have it. Now you now why I'm not posting often. It will all sound like THAT.
Soo.. here we are into our 11TH WEEK of pregnancy!! Yay!! I remember feeling like I had passed a huge milestone when we made it past the 6th week. We are further along this time than we got with the last. Then we heard the heartbeat loud and clear in week 8. Then again last week. BLESSED, we are!
I'm feeling pretty shotty! Not going to lie. This feeling of constant nausea only lasted about 2 or 3 weeks with Andrew. It feels like it's been a year with this pregnancy! Holy mother of God... I haven't actually, you know, gotten sick, but I feel like maybe if I just would, I'd feel a little better! No foods ever sound good (isn't that half the fun of pregnancy??) and when I do try to eat, I can usually only eat just a tad. I'm so incredibly tired ALL. THE. TIME and this is probably why along with just the normal reasons. I need to eat! But yes, I remember that we're blessed. Sometimes, I have to repeat that like a mantra though, I won't tell a lie!
We should find out the sex of the baby in September. Which feels like a long way off, but it's really not. We will definitely let everyone know, but we've decided to keep everyone in suspense with the name. Yay for secrets! Secrets secrets are so fun! I'll take bribes, but they won't get you anywhere. I'll still take them though. And no... not even my mother will know. She would be fooling neither Trey nor myself if she gave us a line like, "I won't tell anyone, I promise". HA!!
The official due date is February 5th. I don't think I ever announced that. And the heart rate has been ranging between the 170's and 160's. No, no, no.. don't started flooding my comments with how it's a girl because of that. Andrew's was in the 170's until the bitter end. I just have psycho-crazy-hyper children.
I think that's all I have for you. I won't be doing all of those pregnancy questionnaire's and I CERTAINLY won't be doing any bare belly pics this time around. My body is already changing and my clothes are ALREADY getting snug, so I'm bound to be a whale in no time flat. But I do promise to give spontaneous updates from time to time.
Here's to hoping I'm feeling like my regular ol' chipper self in no time!!
