And here is my first pregnancy post of my second pregnancy! Let’s start from the very beginning: from TTC to 13th week. I planned to write every week, but I didn’t feel good during my first trimester, so I couldn’t. That’s why I decided to just describe my first 13 weeks in one post. This post will be long, so if you decide to read it to the end, just get comfortable, make yourself a cup of good tea and let’s begin 🙂 (I hope I won’t miss any details). (Or you can watch my pregnancy vlogs week by week ↑, I uploaded two of them, and I’m working on editing the others) The reasons why we wanted a second baby so close in age with Christian I described few posts back. But now I’ll tell you everything from the very beginning.
We were trying to conceive since July 2014, have a baby in April 2015, and go back to my country in June 2015 for my dad’s birthday. Our plan failed. As it turned out, it was difficult to get pregnant, when you’re still nursing. We kind of knew that, but we were still hoping that we would get pregnant. But I didn’t want to stop nursing, just because I wanted to get pregnant. My plan from the very beginning was to nurse at least till Christian was 1 year old. In October, when Christian turned 1, I realized that it’s difficult to wean him…emotionally difficult..and then he got sick and of course I continue to breastfeed. When he got better I dropped daytime feeding, and instead of nursing him 4 times a day, I started to nurse him 3 times a day. In one week after that I dropped one more feeding. (I will write about how I completely weaned him soon! Look out for that post). Continue reading “Second Pregnancy: TTC to 13 week”
