A week ago on Monday I have found out that I’m pregnant again. I’ve done a test while we were on holiday in Majorca and it came back positive.
I have suspected this, but it was still a bit of a shock. I didn’t expect to get pregnant after the first try, especially because I’m already 37. I was sure it was going to take more than just one attempt. And so I was very wrong 😉
I’m only 5 weeks tomorrow, so there’s not much I’m feeling at the moment. I’ve had mild period-like cramps last week. Now I get some heartburn and tiredness in the evening, then sleep problems, same as I did when I was pregnant with Mia, but nothing else.
It is a good thing I guess, because for most you don’t really experience any symptoms until about 6 weeks. But even with Mia I didn’t really suffer with nausea that much, expect for evenings in the first trimester, and I’ve never been actually sick back then.
So I’m really hoping that it will be the same this time around. Especially that I don’t want to tell about it at work for a while still.
This year has been a year of constant news about people getting pregnant or having kids. Even my sister is pregnant and due a month before me 🙂
There are some things that are different this time around though. For starters I don’t run anymore. I haven’t run for at least a couple of months, so I’m a bit weary to start now. If I do it will be walking mixed with running at slow speed. But all I do now is walking or doing prenatal exercises with weights at least twice a week. I’m trying not to be too hard on myself about this. It is what it is. I was really planning to get pregnant at some point in the beginning of next year, so I thought I’d have enough time to get back to my running. But we just wanted to give it one try last month, and miraculously it turned out to be enough 🙂
I wasn’t as worried as I was the first time around, until my family started influencing my feelings with their negativity. So I decided that I’m not going to allow that anymore. I will stay positive and won’t be thinking about the worst. Whatever will be, will be. Worrying or being negative won’t change anything. And anyway, I prefer my positive view on things.
So there it is, my first post relating to the baby number two 🙂 Let the new journey begin!
