We are so excited to be expecting another little one in May!
And excited to finally have it out in the open, I'm terrible at keeping secrets!
Today is my 13 week mark, second trimester, woohoo!
(Thanks to my cute mama for enduring a crash course in photography
and getting this photo for us at the last minute. Not an easy task with a grumpy
Rewind two months to my birthday, aka best day ever!
Because after a fantastic day filled with fun activities with my love,
I came home and decided to take a pregnancy test.
We'd been trying for a few months unsuccessfully, and I was due
to take another test in the next few days, but I thought it'd be
sweet if I found out on my birthday, and it was positive!!
Best present ever!!
We had to tell Chris's family right away because they were planning
a family reunion right around my due date, so we had to explain why we may not be able to go.
So that was exciting to be able to share our news so early.
But I wanted to hold off with everyone else to make sure everything went smoothly.
And let me tell you, that is a HARD thing to do when living with my parents
and trying to hide why I was soooo tired and icky feeling all the time.
When we finally did tell them, we carved a pretty sad looking pumpkin to break the news.
This is supposed to be me....haha
And the little babe when lit up.
Everything has gone so well so far!
With Scarlett, I threw up almost every day during the first trimester.
This time, I haven't gotten sick ONCE. I've been plenty nauseated and don't have
much of an appetite, but I'm taking this news kind of naively and assuming
that it means this one is a boy because of how different it's been :)
Overall though, we're just excited to be adding to our little family!
A few weeks ago, my brother Todd and his cute wife Christine came for a visit.
A random visit....which I assumed to mean they were coming to
announce the much anticipated news of pregnancy and guess what,
I was right! Christine's due date is 12 days before mine.
But I'm not giving up just yet, we'll see who will get the coveted #10
(This one will be number ten on Chris's side as well)
To announce to the siblings we wore these shirts with Thing 10 and Thing 11
written on them. It took a little while for them to get it, but they finally did.
I'm so excited to get to share this exciting time with my sister in law!
Here's when we told my parents:
And here's my favorite video. This is when Todd and Christine announced
to all of us. I had already decided that if they were indeed prego that I would wait to tell
them so that we wouldn't steal their thunder and impose on their moment.
Well, my dad happens to be the WORST at keeping secrets and took it upon
himself to break the news. And I love that we got in on video.
I love looking back and remembering moments from Scarlett's pregnancy,
so I'll probably do similar updates with this one.
Can't wait to meet this little peanut!
