Pregnancy Diaries: 6 Weeks & Crashing

By the time I hit the 6 week mark, I spent less time thinking of my unborn child and more about how I would finish up the semester. I literally fell asleep while studying which is something I’ve never done before. As with our first pregnancy, my hubby and I decided to take pics. It’s hard to tell I’m expecting. But, I do look a bit bloated.

I am up to my ears in prepping for finals. I still have a couple other assignments to get through first. Needless to say, it’s been crazy. I’ve been neglecting my blog big time. I hope my followers don’t forget about me.

In addition to cramming for school, I’ve been working on some great career opportunities that I’ll reveal in time. I’ve been so busy that I had to cancel my gyno appointment. I feel so bad, but there’s nothing I can do. I almost feel like I’m already putting everything over my unborn child. Rather than think I’m being a neglectful parent, I like to think of it as- investing in our family’s future. If I don’t bust my butt to pass these classes and take advantage of these opportunities, how am I suppose to put food on the table?

Anyway, that’s just something I tell myself to feel better about the situation. Being a mom of one is hard enough, now adding two to the mix is a whole other ball of wax. I promise to get my life in order before this baby comes.

I have been taking pics to monitor my baby bump. It’s been unofficially 5 or 6 weeks. I’ll find out exactly when I get my butt to the doc.

So far, I’ve been feeling tired, bloated, and emotional. I’m still fitting into my regular clothes, which I hear is quite normal at this stage. I remember being pregnant with Princess and having to rush out to buy maternity pants. They say a woman is likely to show early in her second pregnancy. I imagine needing my maternity pants pretty soon.
