We have some exciting news in the Mattern household. If you haven't heard, we are expecting baby #2! We are so very excited!
I took this last night - 10 weeks and 3 days pregnant.
Um, is this looking similar to my EIGHTEEN WEEK picture with Cambry?? Should I ask my Doctor to check for twins?
I will probably have to write a separate post later about my big belly fears based on the largeness of the belly last time and the rate of growth this time. In case you forgot what the belly looked like last time I will post a pic soon. Of course it is all worth it and I am so overjoyed to be pregnant so I am not complaining, just keeping it real :)
So far this feels almost exactly like my pregnancy with Cambry. I have been feeling very nauseous. It starts out pretty mild in the morning and gets worse throughout the day. I don't throw up, I just constantly feel so icky. By the evening I can barely do anything. Greg has been absolutely wonderful taking on pretty much everything around here. He lets me lay down when he gets home and he takes care of Cambry, dinner, chores, laundry, etc. I am tired so I have been taking naps during the day and going to bed early. Plus I am pretty miserable at night so I would rather just be asleep. I have Zofran but it doesn't help much and has side effects so I hardly take it. With Cambry the nausea didn't start to improve until around 14-16 weeks. So I still have a ways to go! It is all completely worth it though.
With Cambry however, I could hardly eat anything. Food and water grossed me out. I lost a bunch of weight in my first trimester. This time, food still grosses me out, but I am constantly eating. Sometimes I get a tiny bit of relief from nausea right after eating something. Although I have been eating the most unhealthy things. As soon as this nausea goes away I plan on eating healthy again.
I have had one ultrasound so far and will have my next appointment in a week and a half. I am so looking forward to finding out if it is a boy or girl. We won't find out until 20 weeks but I know it will be here before we know it.
Here we go again!
