Pregnancy is rough, as anyone who has been though it is well aware. The second pregnancy is even rougher both physically and in terms of the demands on your time, attention, and energy.
I know I've been whining too much lately thought when I visit a friend at work who says she's been reading my blog and my life really sucks lately.
Okay, my life does not suck. I am well aware of that. I have a LOT to be grateful for in my life, most importantly this little one I'm currently baking in here. I know how incredibly lucky I am to be pregnant again. 4 years ago I was told I would never be able to have kids at all, and here I am with a gorgeous, intelligent, albeit opinionated 2 1/2 year old and another little one on the way. I'm even more aware of what a blessing it is that we were able to get pregnant this time around with out any doctors, interventions, or fertility treatments. After the struggles we had getting pregnant the first time around, I am even more amazed that my body was able to do all this on it's own this time around.
Besides my kid(s), I have an amazing husband who helps me out a LOT and picks up all the slack I'm leaving laying around these days AND will only snap at me now and then for complaining about how I feel. I know how lucky I am to have that.
I could go on with all the great things in my life I have to be grateful for, but you don't need me to brag. What I'm saying is that I know I'm whining... mostly because I can whine here and very few people will call me out on it. So enjoy it for the next 4 weeks... and then I'll whine about how hard it is to have a newborn and a toddler... but at least then you'll get adorable baby pix with your whining instead of just pictures of my big ole belly.
