#2 on the way!

Hi there!

My hubby and I are expecting baby #2 - #1 is 2 and will be 3 when the next one arrives. I am currently just over 7 weeks and have had tons more symptoms showing up this time earlier than with my last pg. Last time I didn't get any ms until 7 weeks, but this time it started just shy of 5 weeks.

I've only thrown up a handful of times so far (if it's anything like pg #1, that will get a lot worse!), but I'm nauseous almost all day, and that's WITH taking Unisom/B6 every night. My poor daughter gets parked in front of the TV with some cereal for a couple of hours every morning while I try to settle my stomach and sleep late.

I also constantly feel bloaty and full - my belly is starting to expand and it's all flab. Let me just say that I do not like being pregnant. I told my hubby that if I don't forget this feeling after this pregnancy, we're definitely not having any more kids!

EDD is 4/6. Glad to be here!

Hee hee - I hear you! I told my hubby that pregnancy was bad enough, then my memories of it got worse for a full two years after my DD was born. I just got accustomed to the idea of doing it again so we could have another, and, bam! Here we are! 9 months of no glow to go...
