Well you already know the biggest news of the last four weeks: we’re having a boy! Other than that, it’s been mostly uneventful. I’m feeling some flutters, which is early but they say the second time around you do feel them earlier. But it’s still just flutters: no actual kicks yet. And I am (mostly) over the nausea, so that’s great.
But I’m also still definitely pregnant. I swear, I feel like I have to pee ALL the time. And then I go and there’s pretty much nothing in there. This will only get worse as my uterus gets bigger and presses down on my bladder even more. So, needless to say, I’m super pumped about another five months of that. And the backaches have started in earnest. Since my belly is so much bigger so much earlier this time around, the backaches have started earlier. It makes perfect sense. But it’s still less than awesome.
Despite my aches and pains, I’m really excited. And Adeline is, too. She talks about her baby brother a lot, and she loves to look at the ultrasound picture and talk about how we saw him on the TV. That’s pretty much the cutest thing ever, so I can deal with all the rest.
Also, she loves posing for these pictures. Which is adorable.
