Pregnant Again

I've had so much fun the last few weeks looking over my pregnancy blog with Kai that I've decided to do it all over again.

I found out I was pregnant on the 7th of September. We had been "trying" for a whole month. I'll never take for granted how easy that was since I know so many struggling. Of course, Chad thinks its his "man sperm."

This time around I'm much different. I guess I'm excited, but not nearly as much as I was with Kai. By excited, I don't mean being pregnant in general, I mean about the little things. Boobs, tired, etc....I notice them. I express them to Chad, but because of precious Kai I just don't have the time to dwell on them. Last time it was all so new.

Pregnancy #2 will be a completely different situation than it was with Kai...not for the obvious reasons. For one, I will hopefully not gain 60+ lbs. I'd like to keep my weight at around 35-40. I realize that is still on the high side for most people, but for me it sounds great. I'm also starting the pregnancy out at a much better fitness level (but funny enough, the exact same weight 135!).

Also, this time around, I'll be going natural! I'm hoping to have a VBAC using a midwife a birthing center. This is an entirely new concept to so many people (and even still to me) so I'll be focusing a lot on the why's and how's throughout.

And of course, the obvious, pregnancy while preparing child #1 for baby! YIKES!
