The news is out: Maxwell baby #2 is headed our way in mid-November!
We got to see the baby heartbeat on the old school doctor's office ultrasound today, but that grainy, beating image was a wonderful sight. (With the history of twins in this family, it was also a relief to see just one growing baby - few!) I was amazed at how big the baby already looked and can't wait to see some more detailed shots at our 20 week ultrasound.
The second time around is so, so, so different. On the one hand, I've been feeling a lot more exhausted and ill than I ever did with Owen. On the other had, there's just not the concern, confusion, and head-spinning desire to devour information that you have with a first pregnancy. It's a great relief to know that I have done this before and that there are more knowns than unknowns. We got to look forward to all the little milestones along the way (first movement, learning the sex, kicking, even baby hiccups). Let the countdown (or up) begin... 10 weeks down, 30 to go.
