Gravida 2

I wear many hats. I fill many roles: woman, wife, mother, sister, and friend to name a few. You can now add the following to the list of things I am and do: Gravida 2 or woman pregnant with #2.

It's been such an exciting time and we are so excited about the chaos that awaits us. There is plenty about my experience that I want to share but that will definitely be a long post so I'm saving that for later.

As for how far along I am and the due date, you'll have to forgive me for being a little vague at the moment. The one person capable of causing me the most emotional harm knows about the pregnancy and I don't want her knowing anymore than she already does. How she knows is a mystery but all things point to a big HIPPA violation (that or her evil manipulative, conniving ways).

Either way, Baby D is due to arrive early next year and I'm already sporting a tiny baby bump. As for the sex, I don't know yet! I have an inkling of what's baking, but no confirmation.

So now you know the real reason for the slowness around here. Morning sickness was killer and exhaustion is the name of the game these days. Life's going to get busier in no time and we are so thrilled with the growth of our little family.

I'd also like to give special shout out to Kelly's blog, How Hard Can This Be? for inspiring and leaving me in awe over the past few months. Kelly has always been a beautiful writer, but her writing has been especially emotionally raw since she welcomed her son a few months ago. She makes me look forward to this next chapter in my motherhood and life journey.
