Second Trimester

I made it.  I am past the dreaded first trimester and into the second.  I can honestly say that this time around wasn't as bad as the first two pregnancy first trimesters.  Got that? ha.  I was sick only for a short time, about 3 weeks, and still fit into my pants at 14 weeks with my third pregnancy.  I am quickly outgrowing them but oh well.  I am sticking out much more with this one but it sits high instead of low.

My hormones are settling down some.  Some being the key word.  I am much more positive about life again and things in general.  I was pretty low there for awhile.  I seem to be on the mend though!!  Praise God for that.

I look forward to this spring.  I used to think that winter was my favorite season but not anymore.  I love, LOVE, love me some spring.  Green colors come back into view, fresh herbs in my garden, fresh veggies as well, flowers bloom, my roses are gorgeous, and life just seems to take in a breath of FRESH air.  aaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Tristan starts soccer soon.  He is Karate and seems to be doing extremely well.  He loves it and it is something all his own.  Aiden isn't doing it with him.  Aiden also won't be doing soccer.  He is still too young.  Julian and I are planning more get togethers with friends.  We plan on spending quality time together to strengthen our friendship, marriage, & bond.  I feel that no matter how awesome you think your relationship is, it can always be better.  I see more trips in this year.  Oh how I am looking forward to all this.

This second trimester brought back my energy as well.  I was so exhausted.  I didn't want to do anything. ANYTHING.  I stopped cooking, cleaning, running errands, working out!  You name it, I quit it.  But now I am excited to cook again, to clean again (okay, maybe not clean again but excited to have a clean house), garden again (depending on the heat and these darn mosquitos), and just be part of life again.

Life is good and I am super excited about this year and all the surprises it will bring!!

You know how you're not supposed to drink and blog?  Maybe blogging and being hormonal isn't such a great idea either.  But here I go regardless.

This pregnancy is crazy.  It's my third and *the* most crazy one.  Crazy as in hormones raging.  I cry all the time, with massive tears flowing, for no reason whatsoever.  I can't help it and I can't stop it.  I am a crazy, mad woman.

With Tristan, I was nauseous the entire first trimester and part of the second.  With Aiden, I was nauseous the entire pregnancy.  Literally, the whole pregnancy.  With this one, I was nauseous for about three weeks.  I am entering week 14 tomorrow and I haven't been sick in about two weeks.  This is crazy.  Good, but crazy.

Now don't go sayin' "oh, it must be a girl" just yet.  I thought for sure, FOR SURE, Aiden was going to be a girl.  That didn't happen.  I have no idea what this baby will be.  I don't care either; I would be happy with a boy or girl.  That is certainly a change.  I never wanted a girl before but now I'd be happy with one.  I'd also be happy with another boy.  I know that God has blessed us with He sees is best for our family.

Because I'm only 14 weeks, I don't have much to say just yet about all the yuck and nice things about carrying a baby in your body.  All I know is, I cry at nothing all the time.  I go from mad to sad to happy to neutral, back to sad and then happy again and then neutral all in about 45 seconds.  It's crazy.

I didn't want to blog about it because I am NOT a crier.  I am sort of embarrassed by it.  I shouldn't be but I am.  I just don't cry...unless I am so beyond angry that words don't help me, but normally NOT a crier.
