We are Having Another Baby!

You read that title correctly. It’s true, baby number two is on the way!

Luna is SO excited to be a big sister and is insistent that she is going to have a little sister. We’ll find out sometime in January whether or not that’s true!

I’m sure a lot of you are thinking…wait, didn’t you recently write about being terrified to have another baby??? Yes, yes I did. And, no, this was not an accident. Let’s just say, it’s all about timing, and therapy. I’ll elaborate more on how I’m feeling about everything soon!

However, I am ready to answer a few questions now!

How far along are you? 13 weeks and 2 days! Baby is the size of a lemon.

How do you feel? Great! I felt great while pregnant with Luna and this pregnancy seems to be very similar. I’ve never gotten sick, just been exhausted and napping whenever I can.

Any cravings yet? Yes! I want real meat! I haven’t had meat in 8 or 9 years, but right now I’d kill for a chicken leg, pot roast or a big juicy burger. Also, cheese, bread and fruit are high on the list.

Are you hoping for a boy or a girl? Honestly? Husband and I are both leaning towards girl. Clearly, we will be thrilled either way, but I guess having a girl already, makes us partial for girls!

Name ideas? Nope! We have decided we do not want to share our name ideas this time around. Sorry, but you’ll just have to wait and meet little Peter or Hilarie Jr. in June!

Are you healthy enough to have this baby? Yes. I have been seeing my OBGYN, a hypertension specialist and a high-risk team of doctors basically every week. They are watching me like a hawk and are confident that everything will go well. Thank God for modern medicine!

What about coffee? Still drinking it, just sticking to a cup a day, and yes, it’s been a challenge!

What about your workout routines? Still sticking to that too! I am currently running 2-3 times a week and doing Insanity Max 30 5 days a week. No modifications yet, but I can tell they will happen soon. (BTW, this has all been discussed with my doctors and they are thrilled I am able and willing to stick to my workout regimen.)

How does Peter feel? He is really excited for another baby to be on the way, and is much calmer about everything than I am, as usual.

What about future travel plans? Still happening! I’m hoping for a small easy trip next December of 17′ (fingers crossed for a Christmas Disney Cruise with the family!), and a big trip in spring of 18′ (Morocco and Spain please!).  I hope this baby is a natural traveler like Luna!

Any questions I didn’t answer? Feel free to ask in the comments!

Thanks so much for all of your support and love. I am super excited to share this new adventure with you!
