Let's Try This Again...

I know that I am skipping posting some important pics (Easter, the month of April in general, etc) but I thought I would officially blog about our biggest recent news and that is that we are pregnant once again! After the excitement and the following let down of finding out we were prego and then not prego 5 days later, in February, I am still a little hesitant to get too excited. But there are a few things that are spurring me on and becoming reassurances.

First of all there are the head-splitting headaches. I rarely get headaches...which is hard to do in a desert. But somehow I manage to stay just hydrated enough to avoid them. HcG (the pregnancy hormone) does many mighty wonders to women's bodies, and for me, that means headaches. Luckily, I seem to recall them going away as I neared my second trimester with both Monica and Leah. I know, I know, every pregnancy is different...but some things can be constant, right?

Second- there is the nausea. I don't remember it being this bad before, but when I sit down and my stomach churns, I have to appreciate it because it reminds me, yes I am still pregnant. There is still a little peanut sized alien sprouting limbs and getting comfy and cozy. Hopefully the nausea holds with the headaches, because it left early on with the girls too.

Third-  is simply time. I took my pregnancy test in February before I'd even missed a full cycle yet, so my body was basically just debating whether or not it was gonna work. This time, I waited til I was late by 3 weeks. So I feel like that holds a little more promise for us. I think I'll be getting more pumped up on May 21st when we hear the baby's heartbeat for the first time.

So YAY! Little baby peanut, I'm excited for this journey! I promise to eat well, so you grow healthy and strong, but I also promise to indulge in Double Stuft Golden Oreos from time to time, too, so you don't miss out on the good stuff...
