Let me introduce you to baby Made – Maya’s adik or little brother or sister, currently cooking away in my belly approximately the size of a pear. We’re expecting him/her in February 2012 – Maya will be about 15 months so I’m going to have my hands full!
To be honest, it was a little bit of a suprise when we first found out and it took a few weeks for me to get used to the idea but I’m now really excited and looking forward to having another tiny person in our lives and I’m sure Maya will love her new little sibling (although I’m hoping she’s learned to be a bit more gentle by then judging from the way she was playing with the puppies yesterday – eek!).
This pregnancy is just flying by so far and I’ve had basically no symptoms. I feel even less pregnant than I did with maya. I do feel like I am going to start showing sooner, although my clothes are still fitting fine. I won’t be doing weekly update photos (too much hassle!) but I will do a few to compare and contrast with my pregnancy with maya.
So so far, so good, no sickness, no cravings, no back pain yet (although I am expecting this later, I had it from week 12 with Maya). I’ve put on a couple of kilos but still weighing less than I did first time round so hopefully I’ll put on less in total too, although I guess the fact I’m still breastfeeding is helping a lot and I’m planning on gradually stopping (I don’t want to be feeding 2 at once!)
Can’t believe we’ll get to find out the sex in just a few weeks, fingers crossed. I know Made and his family are hoping for a boy but I’d be equally happy with another girl. Better get some ideas for names too – we’d already picked out Maya for a girl and one boy name at this stage before!
