here we go, again

I've always been the girl with her heart stitched on her sleeve and emotions scribbled all over her face. So I've been avoiding eye contact and keeping quiet over here in attempts to keep a secret. A juicy one. But I think it's time to finally reveal it to you.

I'm pregnant!

I'm just shy of 14 weeks along, and I am thrilled to pieces. Especially because the first 13 weeks have been spent extremely exhausted and nauseated, and I am finally feeling like myself again. Well, myself with the addition of a miniature person growing inside my already expanding belly. (It was a lot easier with my first pregnancy, if you're curious.)

And just like that, our happy threesome is becoming a family of four. Oh boy. This is gonna be one wild ride.

ooooooh! Hooray! This is such lovely news Christine. Two is so, so fun...and it's so much easier and more fluent the second time around you get to enjoy all the lovely bits you missed the first time. (That said: I had a miserable pregnancy with the second...so fingers crossed you do indeed feel better now and have a wonderful rest of your pregnancy!)
