welcome to phase 2

3 Jul

so we have made it to trimester #2. and i am super excited about that.

some highlights (and status quo) things from the past week:

  • we told hook on tuesday night and he is ecstatic. wednesday morning i thought he was going to jump out of the car before it stopped moving as we arrived at daycare. he immediately ran in and informed everyone in the vicinity that he is going to be a big brother and that there are 2 babies in my belly. i have never been one for attention so it was a bit odd. even more so when i picked him up and random parents were congratulating me. very sweet but strange to me.

  • informed the powers that be at work. they were more supportive than i imagined which is great. i was not anticipating a bad reaction but they are socially awkward men AND i am working on a rather big project right now so i was unsure how it would pan out. next step is to tell the other minions but i think they will all figure it out in due time. not that i am hiding anything but i just don’t have an overwhelming need to actively tell them anything either…
  • spoke with some additional family members this week and also told some friends. everyone has been super supportive and happy. well my grandfather doesn’t remember who i am and asked who my husband was but well what can you do?
  • still getting sick. we have created a bit of distance between vomiting episodes (maybe every 36 hours or so). but the nausea has been persistent. occasionally resorting to a zo.fran to get through the day but this has been really intermittent. consistently gaining an appropriate amount of weight though. being nauseous all the time and eating to try to abate this has proven useful.
  • finally broke down and bought a pair of maternity pants. for work. they are comfy and hopefully will not make me feel like i am stuffed in a sausage casing any longer. bonus.
  • still confident that long weekend are the best thing ever.

    Sounds like things are progressing wonderfully. Hope you’re all enjoying the long weekend. Such an adorable picture of hook with the little babies.
