I am twelve weeks along now so almost out of the first trimester. We were going to wait a bit longer to spill the beans, but it turns out that I am not one of the those women who can hide second pregnancies (my pregnancy with Ryan was so easy to hide! No one at the job I started at sixteen weeks could tell I was pregnant...or at least they said they didn't). And I was getting sick of wearing the same few things in public that barely concealed Baby's growing mansion in my belly. Thus, the lion shared his news.
Other than that tell-tale pregnant feeling, I feel guilty to say that my only symptom has been exhaustion thus far. I actually fell asleep while putting Ryan down for a nap when we had our home blessed! I am guessing that I inherited this from my grandma who didn't really experience morning sickness (many, many thanks to you, Grandma!). But who knows, I hope to be pregnant many more times so the jury is still out.
Oops, forgot to say that hormone swings are another prevalent symptom. Chris would never forget that those exist, poor husband.
Well let's jump to the bump.

2. The ONLY reason I could fit into my wedding dress was because the fabric stretched so much throughout the actual wedding day. It was literally falling down at the end of the reception...100% sure I would not have been able to fit into that dress if it were brand new.
