Let me first start by saying that I am so blessed and lucky to be carrying my second child. I am lucky to have gotten pregnant so easily. And I want more than anything for this child to be born at least 37 weeks.
With that said...I really hate being pregnant!
Yes, the end result is amazing and I know that more the second time now that I have Brayden. It's a means to an end and the end is good!
I know some women revel in pregnancy and enjoy it immensely. I am not one of the women. Maybe the weeks and weeks of morning (all day) sickness cloud my vision and the fact that I am now high risk, but it's really not for me.
I can't wait to find out what we are having and feel that baby move, which I think I am feeling flutters at 13 weeks. But gaining weight, not sleeping, peeing 20x a day and 5x at night, taking progesterone shots, not feeling like myself, acne, sore boobs...all that I can live without.
I am trying not to complain this time and enjoy as much as I can but I'm looking forward to meeting baby and (hopefully) having a healthy a healthy term baby. I know that pregnancy is unfortunately not a guarantee of a perfect 40 week baby.
I am crossing my fingers this kiddo stays put and I will do everything I can to ensure he/she does. I am hoping for a cool summer and only a 35-40lb weight gain.
All in all pregnancy really is a blessing and something not everyone is able to do and having a child is a miracle and a gift. I love being a mom and I will be happy to not be pregnant anymore!
