Big news in the Schwertfeger house! We’re expecting! That’s right, Trey is going to be a big brother come August 14thish. We are all very excited and feel extremely blessed. Trey and Baby S2 will be exactly 18 months apart. Because of the proximity of age we are asked….”was this planned!?” Coincidently, Trey’s new word is “uh-oh.” 🙂 Our response: “nope, no uh-oh.” In just a year Trey has brought us so many laughs, hugs, kisses, and joys that why not double the love?
Trey broke the news to his dad when he came from work.
J didn’t really get it at first and thought it was a “Big Brother Big Sister” shirt…ha. Finally, he caught on and shared in our excitement.
We decided to let Trey break the news to the rest of our family and friends. Everyone is so thrilled and can’t wait to meet the newest addition to the relay team.
As far as how I’ve been feeling at 12 weeks….about the same as Trey, maybe a little less nausea. It mostly hits me at night so I find myself going to bed at 8pm to avoid it. Working out has been consistent. Of course, I am not able to go as hard at Crossfit and running, but that’s appropriate and fine by me to back it off. Am I planning of doing any races as I did with Trey? Not sure at the moment. I will be busy coaching hurdles at Dowling this spring and might just have to stick to coaching rather than competing.
As far as cravings go….I can’t help it if the things that sound the best are the sweets 😉

Luckily, this time around I haven’t had as many food aversions and can still manage to eat things like chicken breast and salad without a gag.
Needless, to say I am looking forward to the second trimester, more energy, less queasiness, and reduced food aversions.
To top off the news…my sister-in-law, Marie, is expecting in April and sister, Kelli, in July! My parents will be very busy grandparents (making the total 7).
A trip down memory lane: Here’s my 1st post from last pregnancy!
Until next time…
look good, feel good, do good
