Sharing Our News: 10 Weeks

This has been an insane month for us between finding out we were expecting baby #2, Neil’s insane work schedule (I’m talking 70-80 hour weeks) and having guests in town and the holidays. I really hadn’t intended to go so long without blogging and sharing our lives with you but as you will see when you read on you may understand a little bit more why.

How I’m Changing

The maternity pants have already made their appearance and there is no going back.

How I’m Feeling

I am feeling terrible. Morning sickness was a major symptom with Edith and once again it is hitting me hard. The difference this time is that I have a toddler and a husband who has been busy at work so it’s been even more of a struggle for me this time. I haven’t vomited and I never did with Edith either but I pretty much constantly feel hungover and have a weak gag reflex which is challenging. I have been going to bed with Edith at 7:30p most nights because I am so exhausted and just feel terrible so blogging hasn’t been a priority; right now I’m just trying to survive.


What I’m Eating

This time around my aversions are quite a bit different and I haven’t had a ton of cravings. When I was pregnant with Edith I wanted nothing to do with salads but this time around I’ve been enjoying salads with vegan ranch or french vinaigrette. Other foods I have been enjoying: most things Asian (dumplings, stir fry, vegan pho, bahn mi), citrus and hash brown potatoes. Foods I want nothing to do with include coffee, chocolate, Indian or African cuisine.
