Why are we waiting for November?
So Braden can become a big brother!
Yay! I've been just itching to tell everyone, but the old fashioned gal in me wanted to wait for the comfort of getting to the 2nd trimester like we did last time...except...I'm showing already. Like, last week, definitely looking pregnant, showing! So today I am 9 weeks. Last time I told family and friends at 12 weeks and let everyone else just kind of find out. I announced it on Facebook at 17 weeks.
This time around I was so happy to be able to tell my mom right away. I tested really early and found out February 17th, only about 3 weeks along! Jay had a hockey game that night so I took pictures of my test and texted them to my eBFF Marie. She was thrilled for me and I was so excited to have someone to share the news with! I put this cute shirt on Braden in the morning and that's how I told Jay and Braden at the same time and there were hugs and kisses all around!
We told Jay's parents a couple of weeks later and then I've told all the people I told early last time. I've definitely felt a lot different with this pregnancy.
- more easily nauseous, but not getting sick (praise God)
- showing early
- breaking out
- having to shave more often (too much? Sorry, my blog!)
I know Dory calls Squishy a "him" but I could be wrong...! Even though I wasn't with Braden. I knew Braden was a boy from this early on last time too and I was right. So I guess we'll see. We'll be Team Green again and won't find out the sex at the anatomy scan at 19ish weeks! It's just more fun that way!
Instead of doing my biweekly belly pictures like I did last time, I've decided to do a Pinterest inspired monthly picture and then just do weekly cell phone pictures. Sorry, Squishy...you already have second pregnancy/second child syndrome. I care about you just as much but just already admit I don't have the energy to keep up with as much as I did with Braden!
And see, I'm already 9 weeks, did my 8 week picture...and haven't had time to edit it yet! I will get that one up here soon enough! And this is what I mean about showing early, this is me last week in Vegas, right at 8 weeks!
