Heart Mama Update

ALERT: This is an update so I'm jumping in and out of various topics. Bear with me. :-)

On May 1st, my son celebrated his 2nd birthday. Just when I thought he was growing up, it seems like he has taken one step backward. Recently, he has been crying a lot more than usual, tantrums are rampant, disobedience has increased,  he frequently wants to be held, hugged, and kiss. Some of my friends suggested that his reaction can be due to my pregnancy. It's not the easiest situation to handle especially with an increased level of hormones, but I always remind myself that he won't be a toddler forever.

I made my first fondant decorated cake!!

If you're wondering how I'm coping with being 4 months pregnant plus dealing with a 2 year...let's just say, some days I wake up and wonder, what have I done to myself!!!! But most days after admiring the beautiful 2 year old I helped to create, it makes this pregnancy journey all worthwhile. Some days I have a burst of energy, and other days I feel nauseous and lazy.

Next topic, I waited until 3 months to go for my first prenatal visit. I was taking my prenatal vitamins on most days (when I actually remember to take them), and I ate balanced, healthy meals. However, yesterday the doctor called and said that I have to come to the office tomorrow, because my lab results showed that I have anemia and bacteria in my urine. I know what you're thinking, this could've been detected/treated much sooner. Procrastination got the best of me.

I've always had an issue with low blood so I know how to increase the count in less than no time. I usually drink fresh cocoa imported from Dominica(for tea), eat lots of green vegetables, soups, and beans. Works every time! So I'm remaining optimistic about this entire situation.

On June 5, I'll be having my first ultrasound. My husband wanted to wait till the end to find out what the sex of the baby is, but I want to know. I told him I could find out and not tell him, but he believes I cant keep a secret. lol!!! It doesn't matter what sex the baby is I just want a healthy baby. But knowing helps me to be more organized and prepared. If it's a boy, I have all my son's things saved up, but if its a girl I'd like to add a little pink to the collection.:-) Either way we'll be ecstatic.

My son at 21weeks (2011).
