As this is my 2nd pregnancy, I'm a bit more relaxed about it all. I'm definitely not Googling every ache and pain like I did with Luca. And doctor's visits and scans aren't shrouded in mystery anymore. I've had two scans already, one at 9 weeks to confirm the pregnancy and another at 12 weeks to do all the vital health checks.
I think morning sickness (or all day sickness if you ask me!) has definitely been worse this time around but it's starting to get better now. And also unlike the first time, if I was tired I could go and lay down get a proper rest. Now if I lay down, guaranteed within 2 minutes my son will come find me and start jumping on mummy wanting to play horsies. Even if he's busy playing with his dad in another room, it's like he can sense it that mummy's trying to get rest so will come and make sure to jump all over me.
There is no baby bump to show as yet. Even though I've gained about 3kgs so far, I look more like I've been enjoying my meals a little too much than being pregnant. I have no major food cravings, and am not in maternity gear yet, though my jeans are definitely tighter so I might have to pack them away for now.
I hope this explains why things have been a bit quiet here on the blog front lately. I've just had no energy at all. I'm still working 4 days a week, plus with an active 2.5yr old at home my days are filled. I normally blog when Luca goes to sleep, but by the time he's in bed I'm too buggered to do anything but veg in front of the TV. But as I mentioned, the morning sickness is definitely going away now and my energy levels seem to be improving, so I'll get back into the swing of things in no time!
