Yay Naps!

Yes...I need all of these toys!

Yes…I need all of these toys!

Whew! I’m almost 7 weeks into my second pregnancy and I am pooped!

I remember the fatigue from my first pregnancy – the exhaustion that could usually be cured by lounging on the couch for a few hours with a catnap or two thrown in. No longer! With a toddler that has recently learned that by grabbing mommy’s hand you can take her anywhere you want to go, I spend my days being pulled from room to room to partake in the fun my Penelope has in mind for the two of us. So incredibly cute 🙂

However, for a pregnant lady who is drained by baby-growing, it can be tiring. So I do a new thing now. I take naps.

Yes, whenever my kiddo is down for her midday snooze, I go down for mine. It works out great – I can sleep and wake up rested and ready to run around after her for the rest of the day!

Beautiful, hour plus naps in my comfy, cool bed…ahhhh…I want to take another one now.

But, I’ll have to wait until Bugg’s naptime, because she has somewhere she wants to go and she’s taking me along for the ride!


Morning Sickness Cometh

Pos Test 2011

Well, it’s here…that nagging nausea that lasts much longer than the morning (who decided to call it “morning” sickness?) I guess that’s what I get for posting  that I don’t “feel” pregnant yet.

In my last pregnancy, morning sickness didn’t kick in until the 10th or 11th week. This time I’m a day away from 6 weeks and here it is. Well, I guess it’s true what they say about every pregnancy being different. I just wasn’t expecting mine to be (haha).

Yesterday I tried the several-small-meals-every-few-hours solution. I had a bowl of oatmeal and half a banana (leftover from Penelope after she finished breakfast), an egg sandwich sans bacon, chicken noodle soup, some triscuits, grilled chicken and rice, and later, a baked potato.

There’s some comfort in my queasiness though. They (by they I mean What to Expect When You’re Expecting) say that morning sickness is a sign that things are going right. It means the hormones are doing what they should be doing. So I’ll take the glass half full tack and stay positive, a smile on my face with every lurch of my stomach!

Did anyone else notice a difference in the degree of your morning sickness or when it started in different pregnancies? Let me know in the comments!
