…And I’m Pregnant

I’ve been dying to instagram these pictures for weeks, but a preggo woman must keep her mouth shut… until well, she’s ready for the announcement! So, today I am really excited to share with you that I have another “little bean” baking in the oven!!

I’m currently at 9 weeks (still three weeks shy from reaching my second trimester), but the doctor said we’re both nice and healthy, so I’m crossing my fingers that it’s safe to share the good news. Plus, I am getting bigger faster the second time around (the above picture was taken when I was 7 weeks; I was hardly showing when I was pregnant with Hayden at the same time)… so, as you can imagine, it has been super hard trying to hide it from my peers. Some of you might have thought I was getting fat… well, I am, but now you know, I have a legit reason. :)

So, how am I feeling lately? Well, I am one of the unfortunate ones who gets morning sickness 24/7. It starts the moment I wake up and lingers on throughout the day and night… the best way to describe it is like having the worst hangover of your life – no joke! Throughout the day, I’m constantly drinking orange juice, munching on sour patch kids, eating Hayden’s Goldfish crackers, and downing a lot of carbs… pretty much anything that helps me curb off the nausea. I’m also feeling very tired. Looking at the computer (or even the iPhone) for too long now makes me fatigue, and again, nauseated. So, I’ve been trying to spend less time on the computer… or electronics, in general. And if you find me MIA at events, you now know why. I hope this feeling will taper off as I get into my second trimester and I hope to regain my energy back. It certainly did with the first time, but you know what they say, every pregnancy is different.

How did I know I was ready for a second? I didn’t. I even procrastinated for a while whether or not I wanted a second. Hayden is the most precious thing that ever happened to me, and it was really hard for me to imagine giving another being the same amount of love and attention. Moreover, I’ve been working so hard on building this blog and getting to know the community, I was worried that the baby would put everything on hold, or worse, lose momentum. But on the flip side, I do want Hayden to grow up with a sibling that’s closer in age, and I know my husband really wanted another child, so I thought to myself… well, I’m not going to be less busier in the future and I’m not getting any younger, so I said ‘heck, let’s do this!’

Will there be any changes to the blog?  There will be some slight changes to the blog in the coming weeks. As you know, I am still a one woman show and got lots to learn in this field. With the new pregnancy, balancing time with Hayden, and other aspects of my life, I’m trying to find ways to work smarter. With that said, expect more announcements to come! But I can assure you, Shop Sweet Things is not going away (no way!)

Well, it sure feels good to let the cat out of the bag! And it sure feels good that it’s Friday! And gosh, I feel like I really deserve one of these now! I’m really excited to have you join me in my journey and please, please, please feel free to give me advice on how to handle my second pregnancy with a toddler in tow!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone and thank you so, so much for reading! XO

    This is a great news Jeanne. I am so happy for you. I really hope that this time I can catch up with you haha…. Take a good care ok. And post more photos. You will be one of those hot preggo woman.

    Congratulations, Jeanne! So excited for you and your family. Ugh, sorry for your morning sickness. I had it for 14 weeks with both pregnancies. I’m holding out hope that your second trimester will bring you some reprieve. I remember thinking the same thing when I got pregnant with my second: How could I possibly have enough love, but oh you will…In equal measure. Try to squeeze in lots of rest. Take care of YOU. Whatever changes you need to make, we’ll be here for the journey. xo

    Ahh! I’m so excited for you!! Congratulations!

  • 1smileygirl

    Congrats!!! The 2nd time around, you definitely show a lot faster. I hope the morning sickness goes away for you. That is no fun at all. When I was pregnant with my 2nd, it was tiring but fun. I documented each of my pregnancies with photos and so the 2nd time around, my oldest got to be in the photos which was super fun! Just one tip … when you have Hayden visit you and the baby in the hospital, have a gift from the new baby to her. That way she’ll feel included and plus to know that her sibling gave her present will make her happy (even if she doesn’t fully understand). :)
