I can't believe I've been so behind with blogging and keeping up with my online journal lol. I thought this would be a fun way to share how it's felt being pregnant with our third babe!
For starters...I'm going to say it's a crazy combination of being blessed but also scared. I get mixed opinions when I ask people if one to two was harder or two to three. Majority of people say one to two was the hardest which makes me feel better. BUT at the same time, Ryder was 7 when I had Ren so now I'll have a pre teen, toddler, and newborn. Needless to say I'm nervous!
This pregnancy overall health wise has had me extremely exhausted, super moody, mild morning sickness, and wanting ALL the sweet stuff. When I was pregnant with Ryder, I never had morning sickness or crazy tired spells. With Ren, I was sick a lot in the beginning with major migraines but this go round and some morning sickness. But with this pregnancy, I feel like I'm either dying from exhaustion or I want to yell at someone for no reason lol. There were days where I would just lay on the couch in the evening and tell the hubs that the world seemed so blah and I just didn't want to move. Thankfully that passed as the pregnancy moved on.
I've also noticed a bit more weight gain. I'm not sure if it's from not going to the gym or all of the girl hormones happening lol. I've always stayed active and I've tried working out some but it's been super crazy between covid, freezing our gym membership, and keeping up with the kiddos we have now. So all in all, this pregnancy has been the hardest but I'm also excited to see how life flows after she's here with us. I've been much more patient with the process and definitely looking forward to another home birth (kind of) haha. I don't think I'll ever understand why I want to be in pain willingly but then I remember how amazing the home birth process is <3
