8 Weeks

Ryan and I are expecting our second child this December and we feel very blessed and excited about this new chapter in our lives.  We found out I was pregnant on Friday, March 29th and I was only about four weeks along at that time.  It happened very quickly for us this time and honestly took us by surprise a little bit.  It took a little while for the news to sink in but we are so excited and grateful for this child.  We're also excited that we can finally get everything out in the open :)

I took this picture and wrote this post back when I was 8 weeks along and I want to go ahead and share it for documentation.  A 12 week post will be coming soon!


So far I've had it fairly easy but things have been somewhat different this time around.  For starters, I have a small bump at 8 weeks!  I'm still wearing my normal clothes but shirts definitely feel more snug in the middle.  I've also gained a few more pounds than I care to mention but I'm trying to remember it's all part of this wonderful process.   I feel like I'm constantly hungry and find myself feeling sick if I haven't eaten every few hours.  I also find myself very tired in the afternoons.  This time I can't come home and relax on the couch since I have a toddler to chase after so that may be contributing to the fatigue   I'm trying to get to bed early but that's not always easy to do.

We had our first ultrasound at 7 weeks and heard the heartbeat.  It's such an amazing sound and I'm looking forward to seeing that baby continue to grow.  All in all, I've been feeling pretty well and hoping for a healthy pregnancy again.  Looking forward to the weeks to come!
