I'm not sure if anyone has ever told you this, but the second pregnancy is DIFFERENT!
Oh, everyone says that? Ok, nevermind.
But REALLY, it is different.
I'm not just talking about the whole showing quicker, different cravings, I am talking about how I feel about this pregnancy... and how everyone else feels I suppose.
With my first pregnancy I was so obsessed with knowing every second what was going on in there. "Today it has fingernails, hooray! baby has no more tail... today it might be sucking its thumb" etc. etc. This time is more... "Oh yeah, I'm pregnant! I forgot again." Understandably I am a bit more distracted this time chasing a crazy toddler who occupies my every waking (and sometimes sleeping) thought.
Lastly, the reactions from everyone else are a bit different. Our families are super excited for this baby, just as excited as they were for Sienna, but some of the shiny-newness wears off when it isn't the first time. Also, I don't plan to have a shower for this one, because I already have all the stuff (and believe me, I don't need any more THINGS), but it feels kind of sad. Why shouldn't this baby have a celebration, you know?
All this boils down to is POOR BABY #2! Why doesn't mommy remember that you are in there!?
