A New Addition Coming Soon!

Hello all! I know I haven't posted in quite awhile, but I have a good excuse - John and I are expecting baby #2!! We are thrilled, and in the beginning I was very surprised, as I wasn't expecting things to move quite so fast.

Needless to say, I've been very sick with morning sickness (that last pretty much all day), headaches, and sleeplessness. The sickness I can deal with, but the lack of sleep is really starting to depress me. Every night I go to bed and lie awake for hours...sleep doesn't really come until after John leaves for work, which is around 5:45. Then I can sleep until William wakes up, around 8:30. So, as you can see, I don't get much sleep, and I'm not sure what to do about it. I've tried everything....I think! :) Any tips?

We had our first appointment this past Monday, along with an ultrasound. The baby is measuring right on schedule, about the size of a lima bean. Funny how something so small can make me SO sick. We also were able to see the heartbeat, which again, how something the size of a bean can have a heartbeat...amazing!

I have a due date of September 5, but delivery will probably be a little earlier, since our hospital and my doctor do not do a natural delivery after c-section (VBAC). I am SO disappointed about that, as I really wanted to try for a natural delivery...but that is still far off in the future, so I won't worry about that now.

Anyway....we covet your prayers for a healthy baby!

Ahhhhh!!!!! COngrats Adams family! Wow! Close birthdays for the kids! No VBAC? Any reason? Hours after my c-section my obgyn and the hospital staffed obgyn both told me the next one we can try VBAC.

For the sleeplessness, my friend had horrible insomnia (along with all-day migraines) for her whole pregnancy with both her kids (and she was working full time + many hours overtime), so her doctor approved Tylenol PM (active ingredient is the same as in benadryl). My doc also approved benadryl for my allergies during pregnancy. So give it a try!
