Here I am! My name is Sandra (23 next week), married to Chris (26) and it is time for BABY #2! We have a daughter named Ella Marie who is 10 and a half months.
Here is a link to my first Pregnancy Journal with our #1 Babe
And here is a link to her Baby Journal
DH has decided we should call him/her Boo Boo Squared - I'm not sure if it's entirely mathematically correct, but what the heck! DH's nickname for Ella is Boo Boo, and he was wondering what he would call the next one.....could he have another Boo Boo? So Boo Boo Squared it is.
I'm not entirely sure how far along I am right now, since my cycles have been so wonky. I gave birth last July, and got my first PP AF on January 27th. My next AF came 50 days later on March 17th. The next one came 39 days later on April 25th, which was my LMP. So.....I don't really know how long this cycle was, but I'm due SOMETIME between January 30, 2009 and February 11, 2009. :confused: I wasn't too sure if I should base it off my LMP or not, considering my cycle was so long, so January 30th is if I base it off my LMP, and February 11th is if I base it off my LMP taking a 39 day cycle in to account. I'm just going to have to wait and see my Dr!
So yeah, my ticker is set to some random date in between.
Anyways, I feel TOTALLY different this time around. I have to pee lots, but my boobs aren't sore AT ALL, and I actually feel a little nauseous this time around. With Ella I had NO morning sickness, and I haven't been sick yet, but I feel a little queasy after eating each meal.
We are VERY VERY excited for #2! As long as this pregnancy works out, the baby will be born at a perfect time - DH will have a week long break from school shortly after the birth, so that will be so great. When Ella was born he had a final exam 2 days later! He will also be graduating (YAY!) with his degree when #2 is a few months old, so he can get a full time job and provide for our family as it gets bigger (not that he doesn't provide now, I am a SAHM and he works PT, but we have to live off of savings for a while so he can get done with school) When he graduates we'll probably be moving to wherever he gets a job, so we'll get to have more room as well (we'll get a bigger house, or maybe a condo). The house we are in now is only 850 square feet and Ella and the baby will have to share a very small room until we move.
We haven't told anyone yet, which is VERY hard! Last time we told our parents the same day we found out! Since we see them a few times a week, it is hard not to say anything! DH wants to wait until after Ella's birthday (actually, he wants to not tell them at all and just have them notice a belly!) So I'll probably be 2-3 months by the time we tell them.
Well, Ella should be getting up from her nap soon, so I've got to get back to laundry!
