Second Pregnancy – Doing it all again!
A journal covering the second pregnancy, with weekly updates on how it feels to grow a baby: physically, emotionally, mentally. Follow the good, the bad and the awesome of having another baby.
I wasn’t ready for this and feel frustrated. But, as my son has already learned, if I can’t run, I’ll walk; if I can’t walk, I’ll crawl. And soon enough, there will be a new baby in our arms and we’ll start a new path together.
Either way, there are only things to be happy and excited about at the moment. It might be a roller coaster but it is an incredible ride, and in the best company I could have ever imagined.
Emotions grow as the big moment arrive. Looking back and looking forwards, cherishing the moment before everything changes again.
It will be amazing to figure it out together and grow as a family. I am so grateful. In years from now, we will probably look back at this time in life, filled with fondness and nostalgia. There’s no rush – for now, let’s live this time in life, with fondness and excitement.
The pregnancy is approaching its big day. Our baby is moving a lot; there are frequent and intense contractions and an overall feeling that the body is getting ready.
A week marked by transitions: a growing baby, new worries, an eclipse, the rhythms of a family.
There are more and new symptoms, not particularly good ones, but it’s a sign that he will be joining us soon and everything will have a new flavour in this family.
It’s just a red arrow pointing down moment. The journey is amazing. Just hold on tight as we get out of this tight curve. Look up and see all the fantastic characters and treasures you have been experiencing and what is ahead of you.
