Whatcha got cooking?

Well, if you must know I've got a bun in the oven!

Bun in the oven

Yes, we're expecting our second child! According to the ultrasound and my own calculations the EDD is August 7th so I'm just now entering my 2nd trimester. It has been interesting so far. I have had quite a bit of nausea especially over the Christmas holidays but it's been a lot better lately. Based on an old wives tale I must be having a girl because this pregnancy has been so different. I hardly had any nausea when I was pregnant with Andrew. I'm so emotional lately as well. I initially suspected I might be pregnant when my mother showed me the new cabinets my dad built her for her wash area and I started crying! I've also been beyond exhausted during the past several weeks. I was never this exhausted with Andrew, even in his first weeks of life. But I am healthy and we got to see the baby a couple of weeks ago and it was wriggling around as expected so despite the problems I am thankful to God.

Everyone keeps asking me if we want a boy or girl but I honestly don't care. I thought I wanted a girl when I was pregnant with Andrew but when I found out it was a boy and got used to the idea I was so happy I was having a boy and when he arrived I knew God gave me just what I needed and wanted. I trust he will do the same for us this time. He is so good! So I'm happy with a boy or a girl. I am just praying for.a healthy baby and that we don't have a repeat of the problems I had during my first pregnancy. Which, by the way, my doctor thinks is highly unlikely

Andrew turned 2 last weekend (January 16th) and he is such a big boy. He talks all the time and if you are on my FaceBook then you get to read about all the cute stuff he says and does. I don't really think he completely understands what we mean when we say we are having a baby but he understands there is a baby in mommy's "belly" and pats my tummy sometimes and says "Hi baby". It melts my heart. It continues to amaze me how much love a mother can have for her child. Just when I think I could not possibly love him more somehow my heart grows a few sizes!

What's not to love?

I'm thinking my next post will be about some money saving ideas Clint and I have come up with. :) TTFN!
