11 Weeks Pregnant with Baby #2

Hello, and happy Friday! This was my husband's first full week back to work since March and so, Friday is a very exciting day, again! At just over 11 weeks pregnant, I cannot wait for the chance to sleep in tomorrow morning.

Now that Nick is back to work, I am working from home with my 5 year old daughter a couple days a week. Working from home wasn't as hard as I thought it would be this week. The first day was a little rough but, the second day couldn't have gone any better! Being able to take my laptop outside on the nice-weather days really helps. I think we're working on figuring out a rhythm that works best for us, already!

At 11 weeks pregnant, I have been seeing some improvements while also struggling a bit. The improvement is that my nausea is starting to fade! It's so incredible to be free of that nagging nausea feeling all times of the day and night! 

I have been struggling, however, with some intense fatigue and back issues. I actually had to call in a chiropractor on their day off to help me with my back issues because my rib had slipped (I suspect it happened when I was dealing with some morning sickness) and the rib being out made it difficult to take a full breath without intense pain. She was able to fix it so I could breathe again, but I have still been having pain and have been generally uncomfortable because of my back issues this week. My actual chiropractor is back from surgery next week, and I cannot wait to see her again!

Another benefit of working from home is that I haven't actually had to wear jeans or any other kind of pants that aren't either sweat pants or pajama pants. I am actually nervous to try on jeans again because I suspect they will no longer fit, and feel super uncomfortable. 

The bump is starting to grow! Dresses are going to be my friend this summer!

  1. Ouch! Hope your back gets better quickly, Kalyn! I'm not happy to read about your discomfort, but I'm so very happy to read that you are 11 weeks along, and that your bump is growing! Praise the Lord. Wishing you continued health and blessings!
