If you follow me on Instagram then you already saw my news yesterday. For the past few months I have been keeping a big secret from you guys. I am pregnant! Although you might have already guessed this when there was a lack of posts about wine and wine recs (I can tell you I sure do miss my wine and lets be real my vodka and tequila too). I can't tell you how overjoyed we were to find out I was pregnant after our long journey and struggle for baby number two. Maybe it was cathartic that I wrote about my struggles and that helped take the stress off me but I think most likely this was just God's grand plan. I also think each and everyone of you that prayed for us helped. Prayer makes a difference, I am firm believer in that. I never in a million years thought it would take me 14 months to get pregnant again, but patience and trusting God's master plan paid off. Everything happens for a reason and I strongly believe that.
It has been a long first trimester, after a miscarriage your head is messed up, you worry about everything. I tried to relax but the 12 weeks crept by as I waited to be out of the first trimester. However I will say this time I did not have that weird feeling I had before when I had my miscarraige, I felt like this pregnancy would stick. I have been sick this time around, everything has made me nauseous and it has been hard to eat but in all honestly I welcomed the symptoms with open arms because I felt like it was reassuring that my baby was ok. After struggling for so long you appreacite every aspect of your pregnancy, even feeling like ass. One thing I will say, is it is true you show way early with baby number two. By 11 weeks I had a full on baby pooch. We just had our big ultrasound this week and everything looked normal. This is me estactic afterwards (yes, I totally made Matt snap my picture in a parking lot to document).
We are due in November and the timing could not be better. I orignally wanted my kids close in age but now I am so happy for the spacing we will have. Sterling gets more independent each day and I know he will be a huge help when the baby comes. Plus this sweet baby is going to have two cousins within 9 months of him or her. We are thankful beyond belief. God's timing is perfect.
Don't worry this won't turn into a baby blog, but I will share some baby things I discover along the way and bump fashions of course. I am pretty anti- maternity clothes so I will be working with my closet and buying a few regular pieces that can be worn while pregnant and post baby. Get ready for some major bump styling.
Thank you all for your prayers and continued support. I have no doubt all your prayers helped. and for those of your still trying, stay strong and don't give up. It takes alot of patience and it is hard but stay positive and trust in God. He has a plan for all of us sometimes the timing is just different from what we imagined.
I am signing off til next week to spend some time with family as we celebrate my grandfather's life. Have a fabulous weekend dolls!
