No. 2

I can’t believe I forgot to mention that we’re having a baby!

One of my lab tests got lost (WTF?) so it took longer than expected for us to reveal the news on Facebook. But yes, Harper is getting a sibling around Dec. 30. We probably won’t find out for a few more weeks whether it is a boy or girl, but we are definitely finding out.

It will be interesting to see if this winds up being a Christmas, New Years, or super late baby. We keep joking that we need a December baby for tax purposes!

So far everything has gone well, although it has been harder than last time for sure. I started my job right around the time I found out I was pregnant, so it was a lot of new things at once. The nausea was a little worse and I feel a lot bigger a lot sooner. I get these pains under my ribcage that I probably didn’t get until I was 6 months along last time. But one bonus is that at 16 weeks I can already feel some little movements.

I’m hoping to start prenatal yoga soon, and I’m thinking it might be fun to take a little babymoon in Calistoga. I hear there is supposed to be a big energy boost in the second trimester, but I’m still waiting for that to kick in…
