So far so good with this second pregnancy. I feel much healthier than last time, and I can only attribute that to not having anemia. I thank my lucky stars that Adam offered to forgo his vegetarianism throughout my pregnancy so that I could eat more meat. If I ever catch up with blogging I'll post a number of my favorite meals of late. I've been somewhat of a cooking fiend.
As I write this, it is 80-ish degrees outside with a gentle breeze blowing. Our pomegranate tree has orange blossoms dappling it. The prickly pears are beginning to flower. Our house is tidier than it ever has been, and I keep saying that all the time, as we clear through the clutter and continue to make our house more and more presentable. You see, we put it on the market 4 days ago.
I asked Adam to take some pictures of my belly this afternoon. It seems like ages since I've photographed my pregnant self, and I wanted a memory of it.
The growing babe kicks like crazy lately. It is more painful than it was with June, and I've been having round ligament pains - also new. He kicks a lot when I am in a cramped seated position, prompting me to lean back and/or sit up straight. He seems pleased when I eat a nice meal, though it is hard to say how I know this. We've taken to calling him Fox, while he is in utero at least. If you've managed to read this far, and have any name suggestions, please do post with one. We'd love to hear it!
