I haven't been online in a while because I hurt my back. I know, I know... can I have any more problems?!? Well, apparently I can. I've been to the chiropractor two times and I go again this morning. I'm finally starting to feel some relief. Basically, he said that when you're pregnant, you have this hormone (I think) called Relaxin and it makes all your joints softer so that your hips can spread, blah, blah, blah. So, that's my problem. This baby is giving me serious pain in my back-pain that meant that for the past 5 days, I've been standing crooked. Bizarre. So, I think I'm almost done with all my physical problems and life can just get back to normal. But, to be honest, I'm sort of down lately. I think it's mostly the weather and the fact that every sickness possible has struck our house ever since I found out I was pregnant. It's made it more stressful than I remember when I was in the first trimester with Maddie. I was working back then, and while I do remember being sick all the time (morning sickness), I could come home after work and just lay down and do nothing. I don't really have that luxury anymore. Maddie's too busy and on the move-which doesn't allow alot of down time for me. She is still taking 2 naps a day (fingers crossed that this never changes) which is awesome because I do get that time to myself. But, during that time, I'm usually wishing the weather was nicer so we could go out and do something, or I'm obsessively worrying about what life will look like this time next year. I mean, picture it. I'll have an almost 2 and half year old and a 6 month old!! Everything I've read about being pregnant the 2nd time talks about this worry. Which is good because it shows that I'm not all alone. But, you mom's know how it is. You sort of can't imagine how you'll even take care of just one baby and when she arrives, you don't remember life without her? I'm hoping that happens the second time around. All I know is that pregnancy the second time, is different. I'm still trying to figure out if it's good-different, or bad-different. Just trying to be honest. Gabe and I go on Friday to hear the heartbeat for the first time :) That's pretty exciting and I'll post how it goes.
