This is the best pregnancy picture that I have with baby Thad...seriously, I didn't take any pictures during my pregnancy at all.

Baby Ivy #2
I feel terrible for not capturing every detail of this last pregnancy, but being pregnant with a 2 year old doesn't yield itself for lots of extra downtime. If you know me, you know that I am not the most pleasant pregnant lady. For some people, their skin has a beautiful glow and they feel wonderful the entire time. I am so sad to say that I am not one of those lucky people. Pregnancy for me usually means throwing up in lots of random places, breaking out in acne, and gaining weight like a champ. So when I found out that we were expecting baby Ivy #2, I was very excited and a little bit shocked, but most of all, I was really dreading being pregnant again. This time around was very similar to being pregnant with Raleigh, but it also had a few perks. For one, I wasn't as sick and I was able to still run in the mornings (which was a feat that was impossible with baby #1). I also gained a lot less weight this time around...I think I grasped the concept of eating for two a little bit better this time. I still threw up in lots of interesting places again this time...I even threw up on a cop this time (believe me I warned him before it happened). All that fun that I tend to have during my pregnancies has resulted in two wonderful gifts....Raleigh and Thaddaeus. Now that they are both here, all of that "fun" was totally worth it.
