Second Trimester

Where has the time gone! I can't even believe we are now into the THIRD trimester. It feels like 13 to 27 weeks has gone so fast.  13 to 24 weeks I still left normal, my bump was still smaller , I could hide it if I wanted to but now entering 28 weeks the bump is getting BIG! This second babe has been a breeze(our first was an amazing pregnancy too! if I didn't have the bump I wouldn't of known I was prego), with occasional pressure, sleepless nights which started around 25 weeks it comes with putting on more weight and having the baby move alot more, she feels to be sitting higher than our first babe was but otherwise it's been great right up until 26 weeks; I got sick and lost my voice completely for 3-4 days then it turned into a bad cough, congestion, body ache mostly in my joints, hot sweats and all during this we were heading to Las Vegas which we had planned months before. Vegas was amazing as always; ill be posting soon about it, but the time change didn't help nor did my cold/ flu for sleeping because of course it's always worse at night so i barley got any rest. On the way home it was horrible, my right ear wouldn't pop on the flight from Vegas to Toronto, I took about 10 halls and had 2 cups of hot water, plus a cold water, coke and v8 to keep me from chocking and freaking out the passengers. Our connecting flight from Toronto to home was delayed and I had so much pain I couldn't handle it I was trying to do everything possible to have my ear pop; I am just thankful I didn't rupture my eardrum. When we arrived home the following day I still didn't feel any better so I decided to go to the hospital and get checked since it was going on 10 days, I had a chest xray, some testing and they checked the babys heart rate and everything was normal but I had a virus and it could take another 10 days for it to pass but there was nothing I could take in the meantime. I hadn't even thought about work and the Doctor asked when I had work and I told her monday.. and she said no you cant do anything but stay home, no talking, no working, just sleep. It has been a long week but a much needed break. Iv never gotten a doctors note or even thought about getting a note to stay home and rest but I am grateful because it helped alot. 
With trimester three comes more planning; I am excited to finished the nursery, so far we have painted, hung the curtains, light and shelves but we have a big to do list of getting Miss V a big girl bed and starting the transition process soon so we can move the crib from her room into the nursery for babe #2. And! continue on the potty training.. thats for another day.

First Trimester

Hooray! We made it through the first trimester, I was beyond thankful with my first pregnancy as it was a complete breeze, minus the big bump at 30+weeks otherwise i didn't feel pregnant at all. I had a easy pregnancy compared to many other people I have talk too. So far with baby number two I have been super tired ,I just want to sleep at all points of the day and when i'm hungry I feel starving until I start to eat a little then suddenly feel full when normally I wouldn't be and could finish a full meal. At exactly six weeks this so called morning sickness hit, I have never felt like that before, I felt like i was going to puke at any second, my stomach would feel like i haven't eaten in days when really i just ate, its a horrible feeling. It feels like there is just a constant knot in your stomach and it wont go away, i tried to drink and eat often and it helped a little but then it was back again.  This so called morning sickness lasted about 2 weeks and then i started to feel back to normal but still tired. 
We finally decided to tell only our parents on mothers day which was 9 weeks + 2 days we kinda of decided that last minute, we were already at my parents house and decided not to tell them yet but then my grandma was over and then all of a sudden my husband texted me (yes we were in the same room) and said you can tell them.. I really wanted to write it in a mothers day card and sign at the bottom love your two grandchildren to see if my mom would pick up on it, so we rushed out to the store and told my parents we would be back in 10 mins and when we got back i told my mom i forgot her card in the car as i already had given her, her gift. She opened the card and right away said "REALLY!!!" she got it right away, no tricking her. Now that night we went to the cottage which happened to fall on a Sunday which is our normal cottaging day and we gave Matt's mom her gift and she told us she would open it later, well later came when we were about to go home we told her to open it before we leave, she read the card and opened the gifts and thanked us and that was it. She didn't catch on and matt and i looked at each other and we knew before hand we didn't want to tell her unless she figured it out for herself. So we left it at that, but then matt's like dad did you read the card; and he right away figured it out and was like "REALLY" then matt's mom didn't know what we were talking about, but then she figured it out because she said she saw something about grandchildren but thought we made a mistake when writing the card.  It was such a hilarious moment, but we are glad they can stop with the 1000 questions as to when will you have another one. 
But since our parents, my grandmother and our siblings are the only people who know we wanted to wait until the first ultrasound to confirm everything is going to plan before getting ahead of ourselves and telling the rest of our friends and family.  The anticipation feels like forever and thinking back on my first pregnancy it felt like it all went quick but with this one it feels like time isn't moving. We are super excitied for our second ultrasound to finally find out the gender so we can start thinking baby names!
