Baby stuff

I still hate being pregnant but that is okay, I am in the home stretch, so I just think about having the baby in my arms and try not to focus on all the other stuff going on with my body.

I am still throwing up, just not as much. I have some weird pain in my right butt check that makes me walk like a sloth. I also feel giangantic, my belly is getting huge.

This weekend we got things set up for the baby. We have a crib, lots of baby stuff laying around and most of the clothes sorted and ready to go. I can't find a few things but that is okay, they will turn up.

Henrietta has a class in being a sibling next weekend. I am excited to see how she reacts to it. We have been trying to prep her for the baby but who knows how much she understands. Two years olds.

This weekend Kethry spent the night and it was really nice to have her around to watch Henrietta. Part of it was her age but also Kethry is a rule follower, so she will tattle when Henrietta breaks them. It makes me hopeful about the future with two small kids.

Has this second pregnancy been harder? It seems like it has but I'm having trouble remembering how you felt with Henrietta. The video you posted on FB of the girls eating breakfast was too stinkin' adorable.

It has been harder in some ways, mostly having to care for a toddler and not being close to my family. Also work wasn't so busy so I was, at this point, only working 28 hours a week. I am still putting in over 40 right now. Though, no commute.

The actual pregnancy is "easier", I am not high risk, I just have a lot of "discomforts of pregnancy" which is expected. It is just hard with how many moving parts my life has right now. I was just telling Zach the other day that I am much more comfortable with my breathing than I was with Henrietta. Part of the issue with her pregnancy was that I had too much amniotic fluid which made me really uncomfortable and was part of why I was induced. I didn't realize that wasn't normal until now.

So, being older, having to actually work full-time and not having family around to help me is really what is making this pregnancy harder.


Also, Henrietta and Kethry are adorable together. Henrietta told me they were best friends.

That makes a lot of sense. I know every pregnancy is different.
