I can’t believe I was able to keep quiet this long. When I was pregnant with J, I hardly made it 8 weeks before everyone knew. But now, I’ve made it to 15 weeks in this pregnancy, so it’s time to share. I’m due in November. Yikes. Last time, I was pregnant for the winter, so it will be a whole new (hot!) ballgame to be pregnant for the summer and fall. On the upside, I get to buy some new (hopefully cuter?) maternity clothes since corduroy pants in Georgia in July seem
Hopefully, my pregnancy explains the sporadic posting schedule I’ve been keeping lately… I usually write my posts the night before they post (hello, procrastinator!), but lately I’ve been so tired after the day at work and hanging with J and Michael after dinner that I literally can’t stay awake. Now, that I’m out of the first trimester, I hope the extreme tiredness fades away and that I can start getting some things done. Maybe even get ahead on my post writing. Yeah, maybe that is hoping for too much :)
O, and I know how cute it is when people post bump progress pics, but well, those people are not me. I didn’t start out a model-thin person. Ok, maybe I did – in junior high. But, I wasn’t model-thin going into this pregnancy, and I am in that in-between stage right now where people don’t know if I ate an entire Krispy Kreme truck or if I’m pregnant. So, until it is clear that I’m pregnant and not out eating down every buffet in town, I probably won’t post any pregnancy pics. But, we’ll see.
We asked J what we should name the new baby, and his response was “cars…um…trucks…er”, so our working title for this new baby (until we find out the sex and give him/her a real name) is Carson Truckster, as dictated by J. Sometimes when I talk about Carson being in my belly, I think he thinks there is an actual car in there…
Got any tips for preparing a two year old for another baby? Suggestions for cute (not insanely expensive) maternity clothes for summer? How long have you been able to keep a secret?
