{ Pregnancy Update - Week 11 }

So I'm obviously bad at blogging. There's really no excuse since it takes about 10-15 minutes to type my thoughts and feelings out. But I have been busy working full-time and going to school. Which, by the way I will be done with school very soon! My last week of classes is this week. I have 5 classes to make up (from being out because I was sick). Then I need to complete my clinic hours, case study project, take state board classes and reach my 600 hours. I'm around 450 hours right now. Okay, so maybe I'm close, but not so close? I still have a ways to go so I don't want to get too excited. I can't believe it's been almost a year since I started in June. It's crazy how time flies. I really should be finishing up my workbook for school, but I figured I needed to blog for a minute since it's been awhile.

So I am 11 weeks pregnant now with baby #2. They weren't joking around when they said you really "feel" things sooner with the second baby. I started feel nauseous at around 6 weeks. THEN, I got this gnarly sinus infection that just kicked my butt. I was so miserable. But I'm very thankful it has passed and hopefully *knock on wood* won't come back again! That's the first time I ever had a sinus infection that bad. I have already felt baby flutters (I'm pretty sure). I can feel them mostly at night when it's quiet and I'm laying down getting ready to sleep. I'm sure if I had more quiet time I could pay attention to it more and feel them. It's definitely weird being pregnant again because I feel like I was JUST pregnant not too long ago. Which is true, it's only been about two years. I haven't decided on a Doula yet but Stephanie is our Midwife. We have our second (12 week) appointment with her this Thursday. YAY! I'm so excited to hear baby's heartbeat again. I haven't had an ultrasound yet and I'm not sure if I will have one at all. I would like to but I know it's not "necessary". Plus, we have decided to keep the baby's gender a surprise! How exciting is that going to be?!

Anyways, time to get ready for a new week! Wish me luck with my finals =)
