Well we are 6 weeks into this gig and only have 32 to go! So far, you have given me very few reminders that you’re developing and growing all of these important things like your cheeks, chin, eyes, ears, kidney, liver and lungs.
You already feel so different than you’re big sister. I had nearly every pregnancy symptom in the book: nausea, exhaustion, food aversions, sore boobs and the need to pee every 5 minutes. This time, I’m a little tired and have taken a couple of naps here and there and am almost always hungry, pee a little more often then normal but that is about it. I know I should be grateful I don’t have those less desirable symptoms, but it made me feel like everything was OK in there. I’m definitely questioning your health on a daily basis. Another thing that is different this time around is I don’t have the burning need to tell others about you. I’m not sure if it’s because I don’t feel the symptoms of you and it isn’t always on my mind, I’ve already been through the drill or I’m questioning whether you’re going to stick around, but I’m much more content keeping this little secret to ourselves right now.
This week has also brought lots of craziness in the life side of things. It was the 4th of July weekend and we enjoyed a nice low-key weekend at home. I was also offered a new job at Best Buy. It has been an emotional roller coaster weighing the pros and cons of the new opportunity with my existing one. It hasn’t been an easy decision and pray that I’m making the right decision for my career and for you and our family.
