It’s been too long…

I’m back. I took an unexpected summer hiatus, but don’t worry, everything is fine! In fact, there is nothing wrong that 9 months won’t cure! :-)

Actually, to be more precise, about 5 months. I’m almost 20 weeks pregnant with another boy!

Let me tell you, the first trimester kicked my butt! I’ve never been so sick. I only threw up a few times, but, man, I was constantly nauseated and dizzy and super tired. Emotionally, I was spent. I think that looking after a 16 month old and working while dealing with all-day sickness and fatigue just got to me. Looking at the computer screen made me ill, thinking made me ill. I just couldn’t bring myself to be on the computer except to work (and obsessively read pregnancy message boards).

The good news is that I feel SO much better. Around 16-17 weeks, all my symptoms vanished, except my growing belly and ass, of course.

The Baby is doing great. He’s a walking/running/climbing fool. Poor guy doesn’t know what is about to hit his little world. I kinda feel bad.

Have a great 3-day weekend, if you're celebrating Labor Day!


Haiku Friday


Holding On

“He’ll get used to it.”
My heart breaks to think he would feel
left out or behind.

I hold him closer
before bed, kiss his soft hair.
It’s just us, for now.



Have a great 3-day weekend, if you're celebrating Labor Day!

Awww. I remember feeling this way. I have 3 boys!

In a couple of years he'll realize that a little brother is even more fun than a mommy, most of the time.

Congratulations!

Welcome back. I'm almost 18 weeks now and I'm still getting my butt kicked. Hoping it goes away soon.

That is so exciting!

I have two little boys. The oldest one is two years (and three months) and the baby is five months. I can already tell that they are going to be best friends when they grow up!
