I just read a post today on maternity style and what to wear when you’re pregnant.
It gets me so excited! I LOVED my belly when I was pregnant with Elsa! I loved shopping for maternity clothes! Of course I’ll be able to wear most of them the next time, but this post is so good – so hopefully I can be more stylish next time.
I get so excited even thinking of shopping for maternity clothes – it so brings me back to how magical and excited I was during my first pregnancy! I have so so so many memories from that time, and little things bring me back so quickly. Like when I drive down a certain road that I would always take on the way to my OB’s office, or when I go to a certain shopping area where I used to visit a maternity store. It was SUCH an exciting time, watching my belly grow, feeling the baby move, reading about what was happening each week, imagining what it would be like to have a new baby. Even though I also had terrible reflux, enormous kankles, and a few other not so fun symptoms, when I look back I just think about how amazing it was, one of the most exciting times of my whole life.
I know it won’t be the same the second time around and I’ll know what to expect and also have Elsa to be taking care of, but I think I’ll love it just as much in slightly different ways, and I think I’ll again have such excitement and such joy planning for the new baby and reading about what it’s developing each week and of course, trying to find cute little maternity things to wear!!
Is it obvious that I can’t wait to get pregnant again?!?!
And on that subject – my temperature went up today but not enough to let me know whether I ovulated or not, it was 97.8. So I’ll see what it is tomorrow. We had sex last night and it was really good because I didn’t have baby-making foremost in my mind and was instead more relaxed and not thinking about rolling on my back right afterward. I sort of feel like this month is a bust anyway so if it happens, it happens, but I was able to just be into it last night without all the baby thoughts there as well. That was really nice.
But now I just want to either know that I’m ovulating or have time pass quickly so I can get my period and start planning for our next month’s try! Oh I can’t wait to get a positive result and be able to start on this magical journey again!
p.s. just went to the bathroom and there’s super fertile CF going on down there! I just texted the hubby that we need to get it on again tonight! But ohhhhhh I’m so pissed that we didn’t have sex on Monday and Tuesday, cause having sex tonight will so favor a boy and I really want another girl. I’m so so so angry with myself for that. Anyway, I’m still so excited though that something is going on, maybe, and at least I can have a little hope now over the next two weeks!
