Whoo hoo - Baby #2

So I've been trying to think of a clever way to make some news public with a fun picture, maybe a softly lit scene blah, blah, blah.  But I can't and it's the news I'm going to tell you that is the reason why.

I'm pregnant(!) and tired.


Yes, again.  Yes, it's soon. We planned it that way.  Yes, Cora will be just under 2 years old when this baby comes.  The due date is September 19th.  Yes, we plan to try a VBAC.  Yes, I might be insane for that.  Yes, we plan to find out the sex...shhhheeew.  Any other questions I've forgotten?  OK.  So now you know why I've been such a whiny, flaky blogger lately.  I'm pooped.

I'm excited, don't get me wrong, but this is the second one, so I don't have many illusions of what is to come.  Last time there was all the mystery of labor, of ultrasounds, of wondering how motherhood would be, of enjoying ice-cream whenever I felt like it.  This time there are memories of a traumatic birth experience, of swelling up so big that I lost feeling in my extremities for months, of being unable to sleep for the need to pee constantly and from the pain of numb extremities, the need to maintain my weight at it's current level since I stayed a fatty after the last baby and they want me to not gain weight (groan!!) or no more than 15 lbs (so no ice-cream for me) and, my favorite, INSANITY!

I lose my mind when I'm pregnant.  Everything is 1000 times bigger than it really is.  Everything is the end of the world!  I mean, I told the Geek I was going to divorce him over the garbage this morning.  It's slightly (very slightly) amusing in hindsight, but I can bet you that he is still stinging from it.  I really am sorry, Honey!!  I'm not leaving on a Greyhound bus with our babies, bound for Texas!  (See?  Crazy!!  Why would I even say that?  I love my hubby even if the garbage doesn't get taken out!  And a trip to Texas on a Greyhound bus with a 15 month old would be hours and hours of torture - not unlike living with a crazy wife...hmmm  I'm so sorry!)

So there you have it.  The news.  Now can I go have a nap?

Congratulations! Best of luck with the VBAC! You can do it. I've had several friends with successful VBAC's - at home even. In the mean time - try to get some rest!;)

Yippee, yippee for another baby! Going from one to two has all sorts of different facets to it, but it's all wonderful. Congratulations!

Congrats Nana! That is exciting and maybe this one will be a boy and the experience will be totally different? Keep up that aerobicizing and using your oil of olay and you'll look fabulous! :)

Rock On!! What amazing news. For those of us slightly old/experienced in some ways, what in the world is VBAC...reminds me of the initials for Vacation Bible School...

I'm really happy for ya'll.

yogatiti...vbac is vaginal birth after c-section.

congrats to you all!!! I'm sure Cora will like having a brother or sister too. I hope this pregnancy goes a bit smoother and longer than the last. You will be in my thoughts.

COngrats!!! GOd is creating a new little being all its own in you...What a miracle..when you feel tired just think..."Hey...i made an arm today, i deserve some rest". If you read my blog...you will see that GOD had a totally different experience for me this time. i pray that He will do the same for you...but regardless...remember He loves you. Not a hair falls without Him knowing. Congrats...
