Here we go again...

Snow. Snow. More snow. Toddler tantrum. One good day. Pregnancy yuckies. Vertigo. Toddler tantrum. Snow. Snow.

This past week, I had a birthday. Which always meshes together with Valentine's Day. So, I got lots of love and attention from the hubby, but I wasn't sure which holiday exactly it was for. But, I did get a big piece of cheesecake from The Cheesecake Factory. And that makes for a good weekend!

I also started seeing a midwife. Really, she doesn't do regular prenatal checkups until 20 weeks, so we just sat around and talked, pretty much. There is still that part of me (actually a pretty big a huge the majority of me) that really just wants to go completely unassisted. Darn those relationships that require compromise and all that!

Bug has started taking his own pants and diaper off when he needs a change. Unfortunately, the only time he recognizes that he needs a change is after he poops. He waddles around with his legs spread apart, the little cowboy, then proceeds to undress once he finds a suitable spot...usually over carpet. People have been telling me that means he is ready to potty train. I just wish he would wait for warmer weather!!!

If anybody is interested, yes, I am still nursing Bug. And he still sleeps in our bed. Usually, I'm satisfied with the situation. Mostly because I don't want to put in the effort to change anything. I'm ok with Bug nursing, as long as he doesn't do it for too long...because I am TENDER!!! I really do eventually want to do a whole post on nursing during pregnancy. Who knows, by the time I get around to it, it may be a post on tandem nursing!!! I guess Bug will need to be out of our bed when the new baby comes, but for now he helps keep me warm. And in the mornings, he can be really cute. The other morning, he started nursing, but was mostly asleep still. Then, all the sudden, he started giggling -while he was latched on-! The hubs and I joked that I must have "funny honey" that comes out through my milk every now and then!

I am right on the border between my first and second trimesters. It's is really hard still. Some days, I feel like I'm right in the middle of my first trimester! Exhaustion, fatigue, nausea...and even today I have been experiencing vertigo...which is probably more annoying that everything else put together! Someone, please make time go faster! Make it warm outside, and make me hugely pregnant! Everybody knows that being hugely pregnant is way better than being in the crummy stage of pregnancy!!!

I got huger quicker this time around... and while I enjoyed it the first time, I'm not too sure at the moment if I'm liking it as much. :) But it is better than feeling sick, I'll admit.
