Pregnancy REDUX (Oct. 15)

I guess it’s only fair that since I blogged about my pregnancy with Tyler, I should at least give some highlights of my pregnancy with #2. I’m not going to go week-by-week, like I did last time. But I think I’ll make this blog more about my thoughts and feelings of being the mom of two. Fun eh?

Anyhow, I’m not sure how often I’ll be updating this. Let’s be honest here, these days, I can’t seem to commit to anything because my nausea can get in the way and I’ll find myself laying on the couch for most of the day waiting for it to subside. So we’ll see. But I will try my best to keep up-to-date with special happenings. So enjoy, and stay tuned…

Symptoms, Comparisons, and Names oh my! (Oct. 15–week 13)

So it seems like this time around, my symptoms are a lot worse than last time. But when I look back on my blog about my first pregnancy, it seems that I was sick all the way up until my 17th week!!! I seriously don’t remember that. I guess it’s true when they say that you just “forget” everything after the baby is born. I think it’s nature’s way of making sure that people will keep procreating and reproducing. Seriously, if we all remembered each and every gory detail, I’m sure the human race will be on it’s way to extinction because NO sane woman would go through what I’m going through right now over and over again. Sigh.

At the same time, I can’t help but keep comparing my experiences this time to what I remember them to be last time…for some reason, I only remember the good parts of being pregnant last time. None of the bad. It’s kind of unfair when you think about it, it’s like #2 is getting a bad rap from the start. And s/he isn’t even born yet! Sometimes, I wonder if I can love #2 as much as I love Tyler. It just doesn’t seem possible to love another person as much as I love Tyler. But I guess it’s a common concern among pregnant mom’s of #2’s. But they’ve all assured me that it comes naturally, and that I’ll find myself loving both kids equally. I hope so. The last thing I want is for me to become one of those parents who OBVIOUSLY favors one kid over the other. Poor kid. #2 seems to already have so much working against him/her. 😦

Anyway. Names. Last time, it came so easily to us. Tyler was the perfect name and we settled on it almost right away. This time, not so much. Hopefully, once we find out the sex, we’ll be able to really sit down and settle on a good one.
