    Default I had forgotten how difficult the first trimester can be . . .

    I generally feel like caca. I think I'm coming right up on 8 weeks now, and pregnancy symptoms are in full force: nausea, splitting headaches, chronic stuffy nose, frequent nose bleeds, insomnia, fatigue. Blah. I guess this all bodes well for the pregnancy, but I had forgotten how hard this can be, especially with a half dozen other kids to look after. No rest for the weary

    (((((HUGS))))) I think the whole of pregnancy can be difficult, but the 1st trimester is a killer!

    I hope those symptoms ease off a bit soon for you!

    I am so with you. This bean is knocking me on my ***. I am queasy- but more than anything exhausted. Sooooooo tired.

    Fingers crossed we make it a few more weeks?

    So sorry This pregnancy (4th) was by far the worst too--I always had such mild m/s and symptoms with the other kids but this one was rough! Hope you can get yourself through it and it passes quickly for you!

    (((HUGS))) Lisa. Hopefully those symptoms will subside considerably within the next 4 weeks. To think you weren't having good feelings about the viability of this baby, it is a very good sign.

    How did the kids handle the news?

    Esther, we got mixed reactions. Joey, Annabelle, and Lilah are all very excited. Finn is clueless. Lilah keeps groping my belly . Kevin, our eldest, reacted like this: "Really? another one?". It took home a week or so to warm up to the idea, and Daisy was very upset actually. She is my anxious, emotional one. The day after we to,d the kids, she came home from school crying, saying, "I don't want you or the new baby to go to the hospital.". The kids remember very well the aftermath of Finn's birth, and Daisy and Kevin, especially, are worried that the same thing is going to happen again. It's hard, because of course there are no guarantees, and I can't offer them any promises, except that come what may, we'll all deal with it together.
