Almost two weeks

I can't believe that I haven't written on the blog in almost two weeks. Well, there is a reason! I have been sick and so unbelievably tired and just haven't had the energy. Daniel and I are expecting our second child. Our due date is September 30, 2008. So, needless to say, I am suffering from the usual first trimester yucks! I have absolutely NO appetite, but then my stomach growls at me. I feel nautious until about 2pm in the afternoon, and I am so tired that I am back to napping when the baby naps. Thank goodness that she still has two naps a day, this has kept me a little sane. I don't remember being this tired when I was carrying Elli. Maybe because I was working full-time so I didn't realize how tired I was.

And, since I am pregnant, I can't have caffeine. Well, not that I can't, but I read an article that drinking caffeine doubles your chances of having a miscarriage. So, I have only had ONE regular coke so far. I am about 8-9 weeks right now and need to go and buy those motion sickness bands because I can't find the ones I used with Elli.

So, we are super excited. I hadn't really expected to get pregnant THIS soon after having Elli, but we are excited! Not sure if we will find out the sex of the next baby. I think that Daniel wants to know. I am kind of on the fence and I told him he can find out and just not tell me....or tell me at Elli's first birthday party.

Anyway, that's it. I have been bad about posting lately. We have had numerous birthday parties and get togethers, so I will post some pictures of those in a bit.
