My Two Excuses for Lack of Posting

While it's not unheard of for me to go long stretches without a post, nearly two weeks is a long time! The time I normally would have spent writing/reading/blogging has been taken up by the unavoidable urge to sleep whenever possible. There are two reasons for this:




That's right, Baby 2.0 is on the way. I'm just over eight weeks now. It's funny, with Monica, I never would have dreamed letting anyone but family and close friends know until at least 12 weeks. I was so nervous with Monica - nervous that she would be unhealthy, that I would miscarry, that something, anything, would go terribly wrong.

I feel completely different about this pregnancy. Yes, the possibilities for loss, etc. are still there, but I am willing to accept those possiblities more readily and rejoice in the baby here and now...even through the sickness and exhaustion!

With Monica, the First Trimester Yuck extended way into the second, so I'm hoping for a bit of a reprieve this go round.

Here's to another baby and many more adventures!

Congratulations, Andrea! & greetings from the Other Monica's mom - I think I found you via Arwen's blog... can't quite remember. In any case, I wish you guys were down here in Nashville; I miss our walks. - Heidi

What wonderful news! Hooray and welcome, new baby!

(And glad you're having an easier time of it mentally this time, Andrea. I experienced the same thing with my second pregnancy and it made such a difference.)
