I am a Hawai'i girl. 30 year old housewife, stay at home mom, college graduate, and Red Cross volunteer. Hubster's in the air force. My life is hectic, stressful, and yet so boring at times.This is my blog about the fun and not so fun times as a mommy and wifey.
Whew! It’s been a long while since I updated this. Quick update on my life in a nutshell: My 5 year old is about to start Kindergarten (Yikes!), I’m currently pregnant with our second child (Due end of November), I graduated with my Bachelors degree, and is currently a volunteer at the base clinic for public health.
This pregnancy is definitely different from my first one. First off, started off 10 pounds heavier than I was with my first one, which is why I’m so into my workouts and trying to stay healthy for myself and my baby. I had morning sickness for the first three months, which I never did with my first one. My heartburn makes me feel like I’m going to die in agony. I usually have acid reflux when I’m not pregnant, but add on pregnancy onto that, and I feel like my insides literally has a fire inside trying to kill me. I have horrible lower back pains that prevent me from having a good night’s sleep. My friend said my previous epidural is the cause of that. Who knows, all I know is that it sucks and I’m always exhausted.
Other than that, I’m so fricken excited. I still can’t believe I’m going to have two daughters. I’m just imagining them laughing and fighting and crying together like how me and my younger sister was. We had a love, hate relationship growing up, and now we’re closer than ever. I can only hope they will be the same. And now, my husband is already asking for a 3rd baby! I had to practically beg him for this second one and now he wants another one! He wants to try for another boy, but I told him with his luck, he’ll end up with 3 girls LOL
Anyways, now I leave you with some pics that you missed =)
I thought the tiredness was going to subside once the first trimester ended. I guess I’m one of the lucky ones who gets to be tired throughout their whole pregnancy. I never had one problem when i was pregnant with my first one. No nausea, no vomiting, no feeling sluggish and drugged. I know every pregnancy is different, but goodness! I got stuff to do!
Well 13 weeks tomorrow. I still can’t believe that I’m pregnant with our second kid. It’s been so long since we had a baby. Our daughter is already 5 years old. She can go to the bathroom by herself, wipe by herself, help me around the house, she goes to school, she has sleep overs. Goodness it’s like we’re starting all over again. I don’t care, this is our blessing, and I’m so excited to grow our family.
When I was pregnant with my daughter, it was like I lost friends. Nobody called me. Before I got pregnant, I was enjoying life by drinking almost every day and partying. I guess you realize who your true friends are when you get pregnant. Anyways, this time around, I was already expecting the same result. It started off the same, I was supposed to go out to celebrate my graduation. A friend asked if I was still going to go, I was like “yah, why not? It’s my graduation, I should celebrate that, not with alcohol but with a good time with friends. She replied, “you’re not going to have any fun” I wanted to prove her wrong, but I got into a funk thinking the same thing is happening again, so I didn’t go. Instead, I let my daughter have her first sleep over, and that was actually more rewarding to me than going out.
Right when I thought the same thing was happening, other friends come out of the nowhere showing their excitement. I have weekly lunches with them, pedicures, and they still invite me to get togethers even though they know I won’t be drinking. I’m very lucky to have this one friend who is starting a project with me. Everything was her idea!! She got me a white board, and a pregnancy journal. Every week, I’m going to her house to take pictures of my baby bump, or what I call it, my LOVE bump. She’s doing this all for me! Who does that? A very good friend who is genuinely happy, and excited for me. Exactly what I needed right now.
