Sleepy Daze

I'm 24 weeks pregnant at the moment. I remember bits and pieces of my pregnancy with Eric. It was long and I was exhausted. All. The. Time.

My first trimester was harder than it was with E. I was much sicker. I was nauseous when I was hungry and even more so after I ate. But then sometime towards the end of the semester the nausea switch clicked off and I've been feeling pretty good. But last time, I could come home from work and take a nap if I needed to. Now I come home and feed The Boy and play with him. I miss those naps. Another thing I didn't anticipate was the amount of sick/vacation time I'd need to take for him. I missed a whole week of work in November when E was in the hospital. So, my dreams of a mostly paid maternity leave are slipping away. Plus if I do get sick, I feel really guilty about missing work because of it.

I can't believe we're going to have another baby in 16 weeks. It just seems so bizarre. But I'm really, really excited.
