Presenting Baby 2.0

I know you're on the edge of your seats here, so here's Baby 2.0's very first picture. (sorry itw blurry, the scanner still isn't really unpacked so its a picture of the u/s)


We had out first appt on Thursday and I let out the biggest sigh of relief EVER when there was only one little baby in there. I mean I've been so sick and I already feel HUGE so the thought kept crossing my mind that there could be two little babies in there. Which, I think, seriously would've given me (and Glenn) a heart attack. Everything looks good. 2.0 was measuring at 7weeks 5 days where I was 7w6d by LMP (last menstrual period for those of you who aren't too hip on the ttc/pg/etc lingo...LOL). Our due date is April 2 which makes me very happy that they are calling for an El Nino winter. I mean what would freak out a laboring woman more than trying to get to the hospital in the snow? Especially when we live on top of the hugest hill ever (slight exaggeration) now. So, a warm and wet winter sounds absolutely divine to me.

I'm super excited to have another baby. I had a relatively easy pregnancy with Beanie and an amazing labor and delivery experience. Seriously...amazing. I hope this time around goes just as well. We could subtract out the back labor part and I'd be fine though :). Speaking of, I should post my birth story with Beanie here...I don't think I ever have.

I'm nervous as all get out too. How will Beanie respond to being a big sister? How will I ever have the time to devote to breastfeeding a newborn while I have an on-the-go toddler tearing through the house all day? I'm sure things will settle down after awhile, but I am nervous about all that. Not too nervous though, I know we'll make due.

So, that's that. We're pregnant!


  1. Yeah I'm so excited to be an auntie again! I'm sure Alexa will do just peachy being a big sister. Maybe she needs a "real" baby doll to start taking care of in preparation?

  2. Kristen, I'm so sorry I missed your big announcement here! I've been so busy with other endeavors online ;) that I've been a little slack in keeping up with my fave blogs, yours included. Anyway, I know I've said it already, but officially: CONGRATULATIONS!!!!! By the way, I really do love baby 2.0's first u/s pic ... he/she looks like an astronaut floating there, LOL.

    I am sure Beanie will be a great big sis. It'll be challenging, but (hopefully) almost 3 years will be easier than the 2-year age difference we've got going on here. First of all A will have a better understanding of what you mean when you say that you just need "X" number of minutes to tend to baby 2.0. Second, I am SURE that A is not the screaming banshee that Jack seems to be most of the time. I will say that it's been difficult for me to balance bfing with a toddler. But, you're an old pro at it, so I'm sure it'll be fine for you!

  3. You will do great at it all! You're already an amazing mommy. Now, if only you could pass me your labor luck, I'd be a happy lady!


Thank you for taking the time to comment! I love to hear from you.
