Well we did the whole “wait 12 weeks” and it’s time to spill the beans! Baby Clements #2 is on the way!!

This kid is giving me a run for my money in the health department as I have morning sickness (I am hoping by the time we get to 12 weeks, as I am writing this at 8 and scheduling the post he he he) and between that and the exhaustion from building a human and placenta I am about a useless pile of person. I have no energy to do anything and I have no appetite for “real food.” I only want bland and definitely not nutritionally sound food. Such as chips, bread, “cheese,” anything white or salty. I am forcing myself a salad or large kale dish each week because I want my baby to be healthy!!

I haven’t had much to say yet as so far so good but the plans are: another home water birth with our amazing midwife Katrina Hollon from Holistic Maternity. If it’s a girl she will be named Hannah Michelle and if it’s a boy he will be Jack William. And I am encapsulating my placenta this time to help prevent Postpartum Depression (which can be very severe and is a very real thing, having suffered through it for almost a year with Ellie’s birth in quiet and alone, so if you need help reach out!)

So we don’t know much yet about “Hank” which is the two names combined, but we can’t wait to meet our new baby!

PS – scheduled this to be posted at 10:30am on 10/14/14 because two years ago exactly we told the first person aside from us that we were pregnant with our beautiful Ellie Clements So it only seemed fitting to tell on the same day.
