I didn't surprise too many people with this pregnancy. Once your first child reaches a certain age, people are always wondering when the next one's coming and looking at you sideways to see if that's a pooch or you just ate too much turkey on Thanksgiving. Unfortunately for me, I started to show before Thanksgiving this time around. We've been meaning to take weekly bumps shots like we did for Faith, but, you know, 2nd child syndrome.
This is the first one we've taken. 15 weeks now on the left and 15 weeks then on the right. Now that I look at them side by side, they don't look all that different, except things are a bit "looser" near the bottom of my belly. Plus I think I may have been trying to stick it out for the camera in 2009! I do feel a lot bigger this time around though.
While some things are different during this pregnancy, one thing has remained the same. Each time I go to the doctor and hear baby's heartbeat, the happiness I feel in my heart is just like it was with Faith. Now that I know what it's like to have a 2-year-old, I'm even more anxious to get to know the little person growing inside me. That's just one of the reasons we'll be finding out the sex of the baby. Jan. 11th, if you're reading this, hurry up!
