Thanks for all the wonderful comments on the last post and on facebook, we are very excited to be welcoming a new little baby to our family. I am due September 8 and 16 weeks along. We told my family in person right when we got back from Mexico in the exact same way as the video. The video I posted earlier we filmed a week later and texted it to Scott's family and that is how we told them.
This pregnancy has been better than the first and in some ways worse. Better because I didn't throw up once. With Boston I only did 3 times and 2 of the 3 were because I didn't clue into the fact I need to take my prenatal vitamin at nights and not in the morning. But I think I've been equally nauseated with both pregnancies.
And it has been worse because as a lot of you know, in the first trimester when you have no kids you can go to bed right when you get home from work, but with a crazy toddler at home, no early bed time and only a short nap on the weekends. Plus I've been getting really massive headaches! Another not so nice thing with this pregnancy is I have gained weight, with Boston, I lost weight in the first trimester.
We were pretty surprised to get pregnant the first month trying. But I guess we waited long enough that a little baby was waiting impatiently for the chance to come.
I don't look pregnant yet. Mostly in that phase when people wonder... is she gaining more weight?! This time around I have more fat on my belly, so I am assuming the round bump will show later than with Boston.
I have my ultrasounds booked for April 26th! Can't wait to find out what the little bean is. I am hoping for another boy. I just think it would be fun (and hard) to have two boys 2 years apart. BUT of course, I will be super happy if it is a girl!
We tell Boston there is a baby in Mommy's tummy but he doesn't get it. Just lifts up his shirt to show us his tummy. But he LOVES babies. I was surprised to watch him a few weeks ago when we went to Calgary interact with the babies he would see. He would bring them toys and bottles (even if it wasn't their bottle). He would also find blankets and put them on the babies and tuck them up. It was too cute. Boston is going to be an amazing big brother (hopefully)!
Erin my daycare lady sent me these pictures today of Boston. I can't stop laughing at them. I love how much Boston loves to dress up and I also love the fact he is wearing girl clothes in 3 of the 4 pictures!
I am so happy Boston loves it at Erin's. But sadly the time is coming to an end. She is moving to Quebec in April, so Boston's last day is April 20th. I have no idea where he is going to go after that. I am just hoping that Scott will get a job in Alberta and we wont have to worry about finding a new place, but who knows if that will happen. Next week I need to start looking for a new place for Boston here... wish me luck!
|He definitly didnt go to daycare that day in a skirt!|
|Notice the green pok-a-dot pants Boston is wearing... have NO idea if those are pants, tights or a skirt of Eva's.|
|That isnt Boston's hat and those arent Boston's pink socks either!|
