As of today I am 12ish weeks.
I look back on my pregnancy with Nixon and realize how much life has changed (in the best way!!) During my first trimester with N, I was planning our wedding and starting my last semester of college. It was such a busy, exciting time.

This pregnancy, as far as symptoms go, has been COMPLETELY opposite. I’ve read that all pregnancies are different, but the fact that I haven’t thrown up at all is so crazy to me. Honestly though, I can’t imagine being as sick as I was + having a toddler at home everyday... it would be so rough. While I haven’t had morning/all day sickness like last time; my headaches have been pretty bad, my skin is HORRIBLE (but, don’t get me wrong - I’d take hormonal acne over throwing up multiple times a day in a heartbeat), and I’ve had bouts of nausea that eventually subside. There’s been a couple times where I wished I could have just thrown up, but I can’t force it. Very early into the pregnancy I bought sea bands and I realllly think they’ve helped with any nausea I’ve experienced. They help make it bearable. I wore them non-stop for a few weeks and had to remember to take them off whenever I took pictures or saw people who didn’t know the “news” yet.

My emotions this time around have been pretty wacky. The other day I was in a work out class at our gym and out of literally nowhere I got this urge to start crying??? I couldn’t shake it so I left the class. I didn’t even end up crying, I just felt like I could start. Lol pregnancy hormones are insane but I was back to normal after a few minutes. That has happened one or 2 more times, but not lately! All in all I feel SO lucky to not have really bad symptoms. I’m able to do everything with Nixon we normally do, so our routine has stayed the same which has been nice.

I’m really excited to have a “winter” baby. Anthony and I both have bdays in Feb, so there’s a very good chance the baby could be born on of our birthdays :) :) !! It’ll be nice not to be pregnant in the hottest part of summer like I was with Nixon lol. Speaking of Nixon - he is going to be the BEST big brother ever *cue all the tears* Honestly, I don’t think I have my mind fully wrapped around the fact that I’m going to have 2 kids. OR that Nixon won’t be my only baby anymore… it’s a lot to take in but we have several more months to prepare emotionally.

I’m so excited to share this precious season of life with you guys! I will hopefully start being more active on this blog + instagram. My motivations been pretty low these last couple months, but I’m starting to feel more inspired!
Thank you all for the love and kindness. Can’t wait to share more! XOXO
