feeling pregnant already.

here's to our first positive pregnancy post.

i'm having a much better day today than yesterday.

the hormones are surging the other direction it appears. plus i got my christmas decorations taken down. better late than never, i always say.

besides the hormones, slight nausea (though it's getting better...i think) and sleepiness, i swear my belly is poking out already. i mean, let's face it. the thing has been poking out since the last one was born (or before...), but i think it's looking more...pregnant. it's getting harder. i feel flutters. obviously not from the baby, but from my uterus growing and all. it's pretty cool.

and one thing has been happening in the past three days that i distinctly remember from last time: heartburn.

blah. i don't remember it happening at 9 weeks, for heavens sake. but it's started. water gives me heartburn while i'm pregnant. lovely.

oh. this was supposed to be positive, wasn't it?

just imagine a smile on my face while i type this...

i can't believe i'm having another kid! holy crap!

I am so stinkin excited about this kid!
You're gonna have to beat me off with a stick, I have baby fever!
And yes, you do begin to show MUCH earlier the second time around - especially when your pregnancies are so close together.
I remember that at 10 weeks pregnant the second time, I was really trying to find some way around maternity clothes, if only for a few more weeks.

This made me laugh. Your quite humorous!

I remember the heartburn.
I got heartburn from bananas. Well, actually I got heartburn from just about everything.

I also started showing much earlier with the second one.

there is a post somewhere in my blog that's titled "Nine Weeks and the rubberband is out." Yep, at nine weeks I had to rubberband my pants. It just happens faster. But I say, embrace it. Pregnancy is the only time you don't have to suck it in! Enjoy!
