The Secret's Out (and I don't mean the movie)

I'm going to go ahead and tell X-man's big news...because if we wait until he can type it, it will be quite the anticlimactic moment...

He's going to be a big brother!

I have had the "pleasure" of lots of morning sickness and utter exhaustion. Now with the last pregnancy I wasn't chasing a toddler around and I didn't have much morning sickness (oh, I had the morning queasiness, but didn't throw up but maybe a handful of times). This time? I can't even count the number of times I've been sick! And thankfully, most of it is after TC comes home from work so he can keep an eye on X-man.

We had our doctor's appointment yesterday and I was 157 lbs. That's a 2 pound weight gain which I think is just fine. Of course, the main reason I didn't gain too much last time was due to extreme heartburn and reflux...I'd prefer that to not happen again, but I'm afraid it's going to. I've haven't had any really bad episodes of heartburn, but I can feel it trying to creep back into my life. Yuck!

Oh, the heartbeat yesterday was great...just chugging along! All three of us went to the appointment and as the OB was listening to the heartbeat he turned to X-man and said, "That's the new baby!" X-man couldn't care less. While I think he does actually "know" that I'm pregnant (or at least that something's different with mommy) he doesn't have any idea that he's going to have a sibling to play with. We'll have to work on getting him acclimated to that situation.

That's our fun news and I am so excited! I'm looking forward to a new baby, but not necessarily the sleeplessness that comes with a newborn. However, I do know that there is a light at the end of the tunnel and that, too, will pass.

OMG!!! The first thing I saw when I came to your blog today was the pregnancy ticker...and I said outloud (I am at work...oops!)..."What the heck?!" HA!! CONGRATULATIONS!!! That is GREAT news! When is your due date? How exciting that X-man is going to be a big brother. How long were you TTC for? Sounds like it happened pretty quickly, huh?! Woo hoo!
