YAY! It's not even been a week and I'm back!
So I'm pregnant and feeling huge! I hope I don't look as big as I feel since I'll just be 15 weeks tomorrow. But I swear I look 5 months pregnant! I hear that you show sooner with your second pregnancy...just hoping that if anyone else can see my growth will remember this and not judge me! However....I cannot stop eating! During my first trimester I was plagued with morning sickness so I ate what sounded good and forcing myself to eat something just b/c it was healthy was not an option. My morning sickness finally began to go away a few days ago, really hoping it doesn't return! So with my new found better feeling self I would love to start eating better and getting active again. As I said in my last post I had lost 22lbs before I found out I was pregnant; along with a huge change in my diet I had become very active. When I found out I was pregnant I had planned to stick to that and keep in shape and NOT gain 60lbs like I did when I was pregnant w/ my son. Well...the morning sickness totally screwed up that whole idea. If I've happened to not be nauseated I've been exhausted. The fog may be lifting some but now I have to find the motivation to get up and do something. As far as eating I'm starving ALL the time. I'm not exagerating, it's so frustrating. You know it's bad when you are frustrated that you are having to find something else to eat! Today after lunch I've had carrots and ranch dressing, grapes, crackers and cheese, some left over chicken, shaved ice! UGH!!! You guessed it; I'm starting to feel hunger again. So I'm going to have to start thinking; hmmmm....what sounds good?
As far as my current favorite pregnancy symptom besides being hungry all the time is having gas. Sorry for the taboo subject but it's simply ridiculous! This pregnancy is not going as glamorously as I might have hoped!
Behind me is a 2 year told who has been chasing the dog and getting in trouble over and over for it over the last hour. The living room looks like a tornado hit it; momma is just waiting for bedtime so I can clean it up! And get some peace! Repeated requests for chocolate milk when I don't have any. Chocolate milk is not something I purchase often. I bought it b/c it was on manager's special so I guess now he thinks we should have it all the time. I keep telling him that we dont' have any but he doens't seem to want to accept that answer!
In other news we are going to try for potty training. I'm pretty scared and thought I'd be putting this off until he was almost 3. That is apparently the going age for potty training boys these days and I am not a fan of pushing children into potty training. I've seen too many kids peacefully and smoothly mold into potty training that just did it in "their" own time. Could it be my son's time? I definitely didn't think so but as a couple of the boys my son's age that I babysit are using the potty now my son keeps requesting to go potty. I can't deny that request! And I guess if he is going to make those requests we need to give it a try. We decided to start the process this weekend, this will hoping be uneventful!
Well that is whats going on in my life right now!
