Ezri is getting promoted!

Peter, Ezri and I have some exciting news to share. Come November, Ezri will be promoted to a BIG SISTER!

Baby #2 coming soon!

My official due date is November 27th, so right now, I am 14.5 weeks along in my pregnancy. I have to say that this pregnancy has already been so different from Ezri’s! Oh let me count the ways…

I was lucky enough to never get any morning sickness with Ezri but unfortunately I did with this one. I was so nauseated from week 5 to week 10, but thankfully I never actually threw up. I have noticed that my gag reflex is a lot more sensitive than it ever has been though. If I cough too much, I start heaving and it’s not a fun story. Boo. Very unfortunate.

Also, right at the very beginning of Ezri’s pregnancy, I got what I liked to call “death cramps.” Literally bawled into a fetal position until they passed. Lasted about a week. That did not happen this time.

I’ve already had a little bit of heartburn whereas that didn’t start until the 3rd trimester with Ezri. Luckily, it can be easily remedied with tums. I carry them with me everywhere just incase.

I had the same amount of fatigue in the first trimester and so I took advantage of Ezri’s naps to get 50 winks as well. Peter was really good at helping out with her if I was just too pooped to do anything. Having the support of a partner means everything. I am feeling a lot less tired now that I am in my second trimester, but I’m still taking it easy. Having a toddler can be exhausting.

I am so looking forward to when I can feel the baby move. It is the most amazing feeling in the world. It’s like my little secret that no one else knows about. It’s so life affirming. Really miraculous!

I am going with midwifery care again for this pregnancy. I was so pleased with how my care and birth went with Ezri, that I’m ecstatic to do it again. We are so fortunate here in Alberta that we get the choice of a midwife or doctor and that both are covered by health care. Very grateful. We’re thinking another home birth as Ezri’s birth happened so fast. Don’t want to have a baby on the side of the road! However, knowing my luck, I’m going to have an opposite labour and it’s going to last for days. Crossing my fingers that doesn’t happen.

So very excited about the coming months and getting prepared to expand our family!!
