As of today, Baby #3 has officially made it to the second trimester! We are thrilled that things appear to be progressing normally, and the fact that this baby is on its way to our family is still quite surreal. Thank you all so much for the well wishes you have sent our way!
Many people have asked if this pregnancy feels different since it's just one baby, by which I believe they mean easier. Interestingly, this one has been a bit more difficult. I was sicker during the early weeks and the fatigue has been a little greater. It's hard, however, to separate what is pregnancy fatigue and what is twin-chasing fatigue. Luckily, as we move into the next trimester, the nausea appears to be fading and I'm hopeful that my appetite (which is literally larger than a 17-year-old boy's) will subside. Whatever side effects arise, though, I rest in the fact that any temporary discomfort is so worth welcoming this baby in 26 weeks.
People also keep asking how my baby bump compares with the twins. I'm hoping to not get quite so big so fast, but I do have the whole second pregnancy thing working against me. For anyone who is curious, I'll leave you with a current comparison:
