I am pregnant!!
And then my daughter started nursing like a newborn. And I'm sure I should have had my period already. And I'm starting to feel nauseous - I was never nauseous with our daughter. And I'm tired and cranky and frustrated... could this just be a late period? No... No it is not.
So I find myself almost 8 weeks pregnant.
I must say that I am happy that I took us a while. I'm not just saying this because I am now pregnant, I actually wanted to write about this before I knew I was. I am happy I got to spend all this time with just my daughter, I learned not to take anything for granted, I learned to be patient. I learned to have faith in my body and nature.
And now I am bestowed with this wonderful gift. A second pregnancy. The timing is off and yet again it couldn't be better. Everything is hard but it is also so wonderfully easy.
My daughter burns with anticipation and talks to the baby every night, she gives the baby massages and washes my belly in the shower. She is truly ready to have a baby sister or brother. It is as it should be.
