I lost 20lbs with my first and had to take zofran too
Even when I delivered I was still less weight than I was before I got pregnant. Who buys smaller jeans when their pregnant? I threw up probably 5-10 times a day from week 6 through 6 months. No joke. Horrible. My doctor finally said, "look, you cant keep down your vitamins, you're losing too much weight... at this rate, your baby will be eating your bone marrow in about a week..." So, zofran it was...
Dont feel guilty! I did forever, but Charlotte has been the picture of health since birth.
Anyways, congrats on #2! Even though people might look at you funny, its because they are wondering how you do it! Not thinking youre crazy! its totally common to get pregnant when your first is still little! I know lots of couples who had a whoops after their first. And they all say it is so much easier and they play together so well. I think developmentally it helps the second one a lot! He/she gets to play with the bigger kids more often and will learn a lot from them!
Plus, you wont go crazy like me... my three year old wants to play non-stop with me (im a stay-at-home). It drives me bonkers. I WISH she was a twin. haha. More work in the beginning, but right now... she'd have a built in playmate. And I could have alone time!
CONGRATS!!! Goodluck with telling DH. Mine was shocked last night when I told him, but today his is so excited he was telling the lady a dunkin donuts. haha. But we were planning to start trying in August, so we aren't that early in our plan anyways.
