10 Weeks Pregnant with Baby #2

I'm 10 weeks pregnant today (with baby #2) and I finally had no choice but to give in to morning sickness this morning. That's just about as fun as I remember it being in Piper's pregnancy. Bleh.

As hard as morning sickness and extreme afternoon/evening fatigue is, I've been finding reassurance in the pregnancy symptoms. That may just be part of being a pregnancy-loss mom (x3).

The wait between my 7 week sonogram and 12 week sonogram has been... long. Thankfully I'm over halfway through the wait. Only two weeks to go!

As for my eating lately, peanut butter toast has been about the only thing I can stomach first thing when I wake up. I eat frequently in the mornings (every hour or two), which is so different than my norm. Ice cold smoothies have been so satisfying after I have my pb toast. 

I have been loving grilled cheese and tomato soup for lunch, which usually gets eaten around 11am. I've been ready to eat dinner around 3pm, and usually make myself eat one more time before bed, just to help with the morning sickness. Carbs have been 85% of my diet during this first trimester!

While the first trimester has been a little challenging, it really hasn't been too horrible. I am just so happy to be pregnant right now, with this baby we've been praying for, for years. 

I am also happy to be going through the first trimester during this (very chilly) Spring and season of sheltering in place. I haven't had to miss out on much due to not feeling well because there isn't much to miss out on right now. I will be going into my second trimester, and gaining more energy in my days just as summer begins. I am so looking forward to the second trimester and this summer!
