If you know me in real life or follow me on Instagram, then you already know that we are adding another little one to our family. If not, then consider this my big announcement!
We have been trying for a while and are thrilled to be welcoming our second child in March, which makes me about 16 weeks pregnant. I am due almost exactly 3 years from when I was due with AJ.
It is hard to explain the differences between my pregnancy with AJ and this time around. Not only do I feel much more relaxed about this pregnancy, but I'm oddly not even worried about the transition from one to two kids. Maybe that comes later on in the pregnancy?
Its strange, with AJ I feel like all I did for 9 straight months was think about my pregnancy, and my baby, and etc. This time I feel like I'm lucky if I remember that I'm pregnant on a daily basis. Of course, that's if its possible to forget something when its the reason you feel like you're going to lose your breakfast at any given moment! Its not that we're not excited, obviously we are! Its just, different. Its hard to explain.
On top of all the changes that come with adding another child to our family, we also have no idea what we are going to name this baby. Like, no idea. At all.
We have our anatomy scan next week, so I think we're both hoping that finding out the gender will inspire us into choosing a name for our next little one. Here's to hoping, because otherwise? I fear we will be those people who are held at the hospital, unable to leave, until we choose a name for our child.
How did you deal with adding second (or third) child to your family? How did you choose a name? Did you have trouble coming up with name ideas?
