I also switched to the doctor that performed my Cesarean section with Morgan. Not that I didn't like my original doctor, but I like my new doc much more. She makes me very comfortable, and she doesn't rush me. Plus, if I had to go through 30 hours of labor again, just to end up with another c/s, I would like her to be the one to slice and dice me. Which I'm sure is very likely if we have another 9+ pounder :) We'll see what the doc says about that!
Morgan does not yet understand that mommy has a baby in her belly. We try to talk about it with her and all that results from it is either Morgan lifting her shirt and pointing to and saying 'belly button'. Or her lifting my shirt and blowing on my belly (like we do to her!). Maybe as my belly expands she may start to get it. Maybe not.
Everything is going splendidly, or should I say, to be expected. Just nauseous and tired. And restless legs and insomnia. And frequent potty breaks. Morning sickness. Evening sickness. I don't remember feeling this bad with Morgan and it's been more of a challenge to find something to ease that lump in my throat. I've already been through salt and vinegar chips, Sprite, toast, nachos, apples, oatmeal, pizza, lemonade, ice cream, tea, sour gummy candies...all of which did their job at the time, but the thought of eating any of it now makes me want to hurl. My cravings have certainly been a one time thing so I've learned not to stock up on anything - as they change day to day. Anyways, I'm very much looking forward to getting through this first trimester business and (hopefully) regaining some energy. And stop thinking so much about food.
Thanks for letting us spill the beans. We are thrilled about Morgan becoming a big sister and being a family of 4. Here's to another new adventure.
