Just before we got to celebrate the one year mark of being parents, I found out I was pregnant. It was a mixture of excitement and supreme panic. The next thing I saw was a countdown.. of our alone time with Faith. We were ecstatic and a bit in disbelief that it happened so fast, I felt like I couldn’t fully grasp that I was pregnant while I had another little person to take care of.
And then the first trimester symptoms began. I was fortunate to not have experienced any morning sickness with Faith. In general, my pregnancy was pretty smooth, and I just figured it could only go downhill from there. But I experienced the same symptoms I did with Faith this time around: extreme fatigue and some food aversions. The fatigue was worse just because Faith still won’t let me sleep at night and I couldn’t relax as much (i.e. AT ALL). So it was a real struggle just trying to go day to day, while also transitioning into a new position at work. And also planning and going through Faith’s first birthday.
