Party of Four...Coming Soon

Now that I've had a chance to let everything sink in a bit and I'm no longer spending my days in bed sick I've had a chance to think about our new little bundle. As you may recall being a Party of Three was perfectly okay with me. I enjoy our little family dynamic. I'm looking forward to seeing how it will change with this new addition. It still doesn't seem real for some reason.

After you get that positive pregnancy test if you're anything like me you literally freak out everyday until you're able to see the doctor and find out everything is looking good. After that you start thinking about other things. Is it a boy or a girl? What names do I like? Should the kids share a room? Am I going to need a double stroller? (I am not pushing a double stroller. Ever.) How's Sav going to adjust? I mean the list is pretty long. Luckily, pregnancy is one of those slow moving trains and you get tons of time to figure all these things out.

Some things I do know for sure is that morning sickness (or all day sickness in my case) can have a Coke and a smile. I am doing better, but when I mean to tell you I was beat down. I was beat. down. It was not cute. I somehow don't really remember it being that bad with Savannah. Anyways. It's finally starting to sink in that another baby is coming. How was it going from one to two? I need to start collecting as much advice as possible!

  1. This sounds like me a few months ago when I found out I was pregnant. I was so sick. It was nothing like my previous two pregnancies. But it is a blessing indeed. Congratulations to you!

    1. Thank you! I just feel like it hit me way sooner than it did with my first. Or maybe I just don't remember, LOL!

  3. Awww, Congratulations Tia! I remember being preggers and having all of the same concerns you shared. My first pregnancy was super-hard (I was sick up until delivery!) but my second one was much easier. Welcome to the party of four club :-)

  8. Honestly, going from one child to two wasn't hard. Newborns spend those first couple of months pretty much napping all day. The toughest parts are the lack of sleep and making sure the oldest child doesn't feel left out. I was back to blogging, tweeting and going to the stores a few days after I got home from the hospital. It gave me something to do while the baby was sleeping or during feedings at night.

    Plus, you'll have Savannah to be your little helper during the day. Moo enjoyed going to get diapers and wipes for me.

    1. That's what I'm trying to figure out...How to go through this and keep Savannah's life normal. I don't want her to feel left out at all. I think she's going to make a great big sister!

  9. I got pregnant during a hurricane and I was freaking out because they canceled my appointment because the office was close. LOL! Gimme me confirmation dangit!

    I love how everyone says going to two is not so hard. Gives me hope, myself. I think is perfect timing for you. I am so excited for my mommy blogger friend!

    1. Yes. All this advice does give me so much hope. It has relaxed my mind quite a bit. I think this is great timing too. Sav will be almost three by the time I deliver and I think that makes a big difference.

  10. Wait - what, what, what?? I've missed so much! AWESOME NEWS!!!

    Congrats!!

    What's wrong with the double stroller, LOL? I think they're kinda cute! If I'd had another one close to my daughter, I would have TOTALLY been a double stroller mom!! Haha!

    Congrats again! Looking forward to following your journey to #2. :)
