I am struggling with this pregnancy. In regards to the morning sickness, for sure... but mainly emotionally. I definitely had an emotional roller coaster ride with my first pregnancy, and I feel like that is pretty normal. However, this time around it just feels... more. It is not at all that I am doubtful or reluctant. This baby was by no means unplanned and it is a very precious gift, that I am thankful for every day.
On a side note, I am placing my bets... this kiddo is a girl. I was 100% confident with Jackson, right from the beginning, that he was a boy. I just felt it, in ma bones! I have the same feeling now about this one. Totally a girl. Ben thinks another boy. I guess we will see.
I think another thing i am struggling with a bit is that I find there is really nothing much to be done. We already have all the key ticket items that you get to discuss, shop for, look at in the shops etc. There is no point buying any clothes yet, as if this one is another boy, we are pretty much set there too! Jackson was not only our first child, but also the first Grandchild and Great-Grandchild for both our families so, we have A LOT of stuff.
We are pretty set on names too, for both genders. No discussions there have somewhat dried up as we are happy with out top contenders. So basically I just sit around, growing this baby. Waiting for something to do...
