Here Comes Baby #2!

You've probably already heard, but I'm expecting! We have a little peanut coming around August 10th - I'm 8 weeks along...still hasn't completely hit me yet! Funny thing after we came home from finding out I was pregnant - Kristie started saying "baby" all on her own! I was like, "What did you just say?!" That little chica...she's so intuitive. =) We told Jason's family when we went over to their house before we left for Utah. Then told my family Christmas day, when we were ALL together...even Dallin! We got to call him over in Latvia (he's doing SO well by the way) so that's when I made the announcement.

So far I'm doing alright - already hitting the stage though where I get nauseous if I get hungry, and sometimes nauseous after I eat. And starting to have a hard time finding something to eat that my tummy wants. Oh boy! This time around I can't focus on myself 'cause there's a toddler running around the house - maybe that'll make the pregnancy go faster this time around? We'll see!

Congratulations! The second pregnancy is different...I didn't really feel like it was going by faster than the first but there were parts of my second pregnancy that I felt I didn't get the chance to really enjoy because I was too busy taking care of my toddler...and there were definitely parts that were more stressful..like trying to explain to your toddler that you can't pick them up anymore...that was hard. I tried to stick to eating TONS of fresh fruits and veggies and ate very low fat foods and stayed away from sugar as much as possible and I didn't get sick when I did...when I ate something that was higher in fat or sugary I did get sicky but I quickly learned my lesson! I don't know if that's true for all but it doesn't hurt to try it!

You should have your baby right on your due date because August 10th is the BEST BIRTHDAY EVER! :-D Such exciting news for you! I hope you get through the yucky stage quickly. :-)

CONGRATS Candace! Yes, it goes by WAY faster when you have a little one running around. I became pregnant with Lila when Rowan was 2 and a few months and it flew by! Now wait until your 3rd! I'll be 15 weeks on Wednesday and I feel like I just found out last week! :O

oh yeay! Congrats you guys! that's great news! Sorry your feeling the nausea pains. I totally understand the I'm so sick I need to eat/I'm so sick I just ate feeling. Seems like nothing you eat is right. I tried drinking ginger tea, and it helped a little. Oh and I found out that I had acid reflux too. thats what was making the nausea bad after I ate. anyway, hope you'll feel better soon! So happy for you!
