Mama Says Om: Taste

It's has been too long since I last submitted to Mama Says Om. I actually miss it!

Taste.. well yesterday the taste in my mouth changed. I found out that I am pregnant. It's still very early, but, good grief! When I told my husband I cried. Not tears of joy, (well maybe one or two) but tears of frustration, anxiety, exhaustion, and fear. We have a 15 month old who won't sleep through the night. Just in the last few weeks we have let her sleep with us due to the extreme exhaustion we were all suffering. I am starting to build a business for myself (or would like to think so) and My last few pregnancies have not been 'easy' to say the least. Sick. Oh, God. I get so sick. It's all worth it in the end. A beautiful baby. Sleepless nights. ooohh.. Its gonna take awhile to get used to. Perhaps that is why Mother Nature gives us 40 weeks to process the idea. For now it leaves a taste in my mouth. I have to go hunt for one of those little banners for your blog now..

Giving birth is a scary thing. I was anxious big time - afraid of being taken over by the pain. For something as natural as having children and for as long as the human race has been doing it, I'd think that it shouldn't hurt as much as it does after all these thousands of years.

Don't feel bad about letting the baby sleep in your bed. It's a coping measure that works.

Oh Abbie I can imagine what you are going through, I don't know if I would be so excited about it to be pregnant right now either, but hey on the other side it has a lot of positive things too! And maybe your pregnancy won't be that hard this time! And kids are so much fun even it's hard as well.
And PS: Lars still sleeps with us most of the time in the bed at night! I don't feel bad because that means I can sleep through the night. I'm sure he wants to sleep in his own bed soon enough and sometimes he does but only till 3am, which means I have to get up!

Wow. I feel for you. I don't know you and somehow I know what you are going through. It can be universal, those motherhood experiences.

Like you say in your profile, regret nothing. Everything has it's purpose.

Happy baby wishes for you!!

This took me back to the days when my youngest was nearly 2 and still not sleeping through the night. Do I ever feel for you.
