2nd Pregnancy Week 13

Now that we’re into the second trimester, I can definitely feel an improvement in my symptoms – less nausea, and less fatigue.  Another thing I’ve noticed over the last couple of weeks is a change in Gavin’s nursing pattern.  Although he still asks to nurse, I’ve notice the nursing time has decreased.  He also asksContinue reading “2nd Pregnancy Week 13”

We were supposed to see the doctor last week but since he had a few emergencies and was running late, plus Gavin was down with a fever, we rescheduled it to this week.  Now that I am past the 12 week mark, I am officially in my second trimester meaning that I now have aContinue reading “2nd Pregnancy: Second Visit to the Doctor”

Some text books I remember reading say that the symptoms and experiences of the second pregnancy is usually not asContinue reading “2nd Pregnancy Week 7”

The Ambivalence of Being Pregnant

It looks like being a pregnant Mum the second time around has not made me immune to those silly pregnant fears about how the baby is doing… Yesterday morning, I woke up feeling fairly normal – there were no symptoms of that low grade nausea associated with pregnancy.  Gavin was nursing and my nipples weren’tContinue reading “The Ambivalence of Being Pregnant”
