|Daddy duck, mommy duck, baby duck, baby duck!|
We're due towards the end of September, about 2 weeks after Rowan's birthday. I guess when Ian and I had talked about having kids 2-3 years apart, we decided to shoot for almost exactly 2 years apart.
Generally I've been feeling good. All the pregnancy symptoms I had with Rowan are nowhere to be found. A whole new host of them are. I am SUPER crabby about 14 hours of the day (thankfully that's getting better...I don't know how Ian would deal with 25 more weeks of a crab-a-potamos living in our house). If I don't eat, I start to get some major gagging and dry heaves going on. I was ex.haus.ted. during the first trimester. My energy is coming back now that we're about 15 weeks long, but it's still not 100%. I am also feeling way bigger way faster than I did with Rowan. I looked at my profile today and saw a definite belly. Looking back at 15 weeks with Rowan and I BARELY had a belly. At this rate, I'll be the size of Texas when we're due. Oh well. Give me reason to break out the maternity clothes a bit earlier I guess.
Ian and I are really excited to see Rowan become a big brother. He loves little babies though he does have a hard time sharing mom. He had a hard time waiting to be held when I was feeding my newborn niece or nephew, but I can't say I blame him. He'll adjust as we all will when another little one joins our house. And who knows, maybe by 2 it will be a little bit better. It may be worse, but at this point we'll just have to take it day by day and see what the sibling relationship develops into.
