Pregnancy update 5: baby #2

How far along: 26 weeks (as of July 5)

Total weight gain:16 pounds, as of my last prenatal appointment, which was at 24 weeks. I'm guessing it's actually more by now, but let's just go with 16. Ha.

Maternity clothes: same as before, except Joel's mom bought me a new cute shirt and some AWESOME denim shorts. Loving them both in this hot summer weather!

Pregnancy symptoms: heartburn, back aches, and exhaustion (though of course that could be related to the summer heat, or moving across country, or chasing around a toddler, or waking up with a toddler at the butt crack of dawn...)

Thoughts: Gosh, I'm tired. Was I this tired last time? Is the baby fine in there? Wow, he is strong. What will Charlotte think of him? How will we manage two children? Will they grow up to be friends? I wonder how labor will be this time. I wonder if I'm up to the task of raising a boy. What a privilege to have another healthy pregnancy. Oh my gosh, am I ever tired.
