I was thrilled to be a Mom again. Our firstborn was almost two-and-a-half years old when we found out we were pregnant, and later we learned it would be another boy! The cup of love was overflowing and our hearts swelled with pride.
Soon after though, all the good feels from being pregnancy began to diminish. Whereas with my first son I was loving pregnancy so much and had felt better than I had in years, this past pregnancy was anything but wonderful. I was sick every day. There were days when I couldn’t drive my son to school because I was throwing up and finding myself sitting on the floor in the corner of the kitchen cabinets, looking up at my husband, thinking “can I drive? Maybe if I just get in the car I can do it.”
