30 weeks

Yes, I'm one of those bloggers who has disappeared. I won't lie. I don't know how people do this, and by this I mean LIFE.

Well, not so dramatic, but things are moving quickly here. Update is that all is fine with the pregnancy. All my tests are fine and the baby moves a ton. One thing that is different for me this time around is that I am sick a lot. I blame it on A, who although only attends daycare on Tuesdays and Thursdays, has managed to be sick every week since the beginning of the year. This past weekend was intestinal (which I then also got! fun!), and today I woke up with a runny nose and sore throat, something he has been battling for weeks. I know I am supposedly susceptible since I am preggo, but first pregnancy I was rarely sick.  Bleah!

A is growing. He is 18 months next week and is a holy terror and a lovie dovie all in one. He has lots of words yet throws tantrums. Fun. Last night it was connecting the little elephant train set. I didn't do it immediately when he asked me to "Nect-ta mama" (meaning "connect, mama") as he held out the elephant and WAHHHHHHHHH. I have resorted to laughing sometimes because, really, what else can I do.

So I have about 67 days left until baby #2 is due. Nothing is prepared for this child. I mean, I plan to use the bassinet next to my bed, but after that, who knows. I do have the newborn diapers ready. I guess I will truly just wing it. The semester ends on May 11, just one week shy of my due date. Then I have the summer off to be a full time mom to a 20 month old and a newborn.

And that scares the shit out of me!

You are going to be awesome! It's definitely less scary the second time around and not twice the work. The joy of having kids close together is that Robster is blissfully unaware of the massive change that just entered his world.

My biggest stress was hospital coverage. After that, everything else is gravy.

Good to hear from you. Glad all is well!! Two kids is crazy town I'm not gonna lie. But you'll do it.

Hey stranger!!! What a cutie your little A is! :)

I totally hear you on the Jekyll and Hyde of toddlerhood. Will A continue to go to daycare on Tuesdays and Thursdays over the summer? This sounds horrible, but if I do have another baby, I'm pretty sure that H would still go to daycare full time while I was on maternity leave. LOL

Hope you have a healthy stretch soon. If I don't hear from you for a while, best of luck through the next few months and with labor. (((Hugs!)))

Yup, I'm one of those bloggers too.
Please keep us posted, I want to hear all about the newbie. You should have tons of time while you are off for the summer, JK! Glad all is well :)

But it's a good kind of shit-scaring, right?!

A is doing fantastic! his vocabulary is very impressive.
I am sorry about all the sickness, that's the worst during pregnancy. I hope you both get a long relief from germs when Spring finally decides to get here.
