Marguerite Is Going to Be a Big Sister

 

I thought I'd hold off blogging about it until after I'd seen my OB-GYN, but many people already know, so I thought I might as well let the rest of the world know, lol. I'm currently 6 and a half weeks pregnant and as you can probably tell, blogging makes me feel sick, hence the lull in my clicks and drops. I wanted to keep it quiet for the first trimester, but Marguerite announced our secret in her Sunday School class last week  ("My mommy has a baby in her tummy.") while Mark posted what he thought was a harmless "And it is..." on his Facebook wall right after I took the test and was flabbergasted when everybody jumped to the right conclusions. Obviously, these are two people you wouldn't want to trust with top secrets.
I hope I'm not speaking too soon when I say that this pregnancy seems to be easier than the first one (I did that before, exclaiming "Hey, this doesn't seem like it's going to be a difficult pregnancy. I don't feel any different!" and proceeded to spend the following five months gagging and projectile vomiting), but even if it isn't, at least I won't have to worry about teaching 5 classes a day (and students don't have to worry about warding off speckles of flying puke - it wasn't really necessary as I always made it to the sink in time) and driving the 3+ hours from Subic to Manila most weekends (this was before SCTex). I'm getting sick waxing nostalgic about that time, lol. Help me pray for this one, okay? :)

Congratulations! Having a baby is always an exciting event. I love being pregnant except for the first trimester where I suffered a lot due to hormonal changes. Let's hope that you'll get an easier pregnancy this time.

I remembered my wife in her first pregnancy that she don't know what's going on with her. The hormonal changes just gets her spinning but she don't have much of the morning sickness.

Congrats then.!!!
