Time to re-learn

I'm pregnant again. Came to know about it on 14th March, the day after Joel's Annual School Day. It took about that whole evening and night for the realisation to sink in.

With this realisation, came the understanding of why I was feeling exhausted by the end of a day, and why I had headaches so frequently.

First person to know this time was BV. Then  Sangi. Then called Amrith and told him. Broke the news to my parents next morning and later on to Vivek. Over the past few days have informed a few colleagues at work and most of my friends. Of all reactions I received when breaking the news of this pregnancy, I liked Sangi's the best.

My two worries this time are weight and sugar. Have decided that this time I'm not going to be a lazy mom. Since I'm staying with dad and mom, I'm using this opportunity to walk every night around the house. Feeling good about it. I'm going veggie again as I did with Joel. And, this time I have a whole bunch of cravings and with almost non-existant nausea.

This time I've been able to see the baby during my first visit to Dr. Malathi. Everything looks fine and normal. Or at least that's what she said. Tomorrow I visit her again and most probably be told to get some tests done.

I've forgotten what pregnancy felt like the first time. Thanks to Mom and Dr. Spock, I'm re-learning a few things. I guess I'm going to enjoy this phase a lot more than I did the first time, no matter how much I crave for raw mangoes :).
