The baby is growing and it's about time I did another update on our little finale :). The last month has been hard but the baby is growing and we are so happy about that.
I am so happy to be pregnant again and I am totally relishing in this being our last pregnancy. But let me tell you, this baby is killing me softly. The nausea is still here in full force, no vomiting but just a never ending feeling all day long. The exhaustion oh my, I think we spent the last 3 weekends cooped up inside because I have zero energy once we survive the week.
I was hoping the second trimester would bring me some relief but it's not looking like I am ever going to get any relief. We are trucking along though and baby girl is growing strong healthy, praise the Lord. I hate being a downer when it comes to pregnancy because it is such a special time that yields an amazing result but this pregnancy is my toughest for sure. I guess they always say girls are harder on their mamas ;).
Oh and the aches and pain are already here in full force. How is that even possible, I am barely at the halfway point. Maybe I am just getting old and chasing after 3 very active boys is just not helping. I am not going to lie, I am so glad this is our last pregnancy and not the first because I don't know how I would have been encouraged to do this multiple times.
To add insult to injury, we are taking a transcontinental (20+ hour flight) trip with the kids and we leave tomorrow. We planned this trip way before I was pregnant and I based everything off my last pregnancies. I had a great track record with 3 fairly easy pregnancies. I am just dreading the long flight but I know we will survive or at least I hope so :).
Ok, let's say goodbye to negative Nancy and bring the old cheerful happy Pegster :). Despite all the nausea, tiredness, aches and pain, I wouldn't trade this for anything in the world right now. I am so looking forward to July when I hope I get to hold my 4th baby, my last baby, and my 1st daughter :).
Look at that profile from our 12-week appointment. Doesn't she look like she is waving at us :)
