Baby Holmes #2

Mckenzi has decided that it's high time she had a little brother or sister. So, we're obliged to offer her one!

This pregnancy has been hard, but in different ways. I will say, it's NOTHING like the first. With zero exaggeration at all, I was near death with my first pregnancy! Or so it felt. The frequent trips to the hospital made me believe the doctors had their concerns too!

This time around I have the intense nausea, but it's coupled with unrelenting starvation. It's ridiculous. It seems I can't do much to calm the storm for long. With the nausea, it's very very difficult to choke anything down. But, as I make myself do it, I do feel somewhat better. Smells don't kill me like they once did. I mean, don't get me wrong - almost everything smells unpleasent and makes my stomach churn. The upside is, I'm not running for the nearest toilet.

I think I'm having a boy. Always hungry, always tired, nothing like with Mckenzi. We'll see!

Congratulations!!! That's so exciting-how far along are you? It is so weird to eat when you feel like you could throw up-totally unnatural. I hope you start feeling better and better!
