Okay, so as I mentioned in my last blog post, I wanted to update my blog with all the fun things that we did the last half of last year and also share what we are up to now.
WE ARE PREGNANT!
Clearly, this is the most important and exciting thing to happen to us in 2017. I found out on August 28th at 3 weeks and 5 days. (5 days before my expected period) Those pregnancy test boxes that say "find out X days before your missed period" really do work sometimes! I had to wait double the time it says on the box for the faint line to show up, but it was there!
I immediately told Chris when he got home from work - he was very shocked - even though we were trying. Thankfully, getting pregnant happened very very quickly for us, which is probably why he was so shocked. I honestly couldn't feel more fortunate.
The first trimester was very similar to my last pregnancy with Leah, super nauseous, throwing up on the daily, but overall feeling pretty good and those side effects went away around week 14.
The second trimester went by very very quickly. I definitely started showing really early and had to buy a lot more maternity clothing because my belly was growing so quickly. But I can't complain because overall I felt pretty good. And we got to find out the gender...with a silly string reveal!
We are having another girl!!
Now, I'm already in my third trimester! Baby is coming very soon! :)
Nothing special...just walking around our own neighborhood in search of candy. It was super cold so I think we hit 15 houses and then came back home, but I couldn't not share this photo of our little elephant!
P.S. When you're pregnant, especially in your first trimester, you drop the ball on just about everything. You're too tired, too nauseous, too anxious about everything, and you forget (pregnancy brain) about all the things you would normally do on time. Well, it was about 4 days before Halloween and realized I forgot to get a costume for Leah - and at this point all the good costumes everywhere were sold out and only the crappy plastic ones were left. Well, I was pregnant and therefore didn't care too much, and came to terms that Leah's too young to know about Halloween to care that mom forgot to buy her a costume. You win some, you lose some, right??!
Well, I was at a meeting with a work vendor and mentioned my problem....and guess what. This amazing, sweet vendor (who I love) said she had a costume that would fit Leah and she would even deliver it to my work the next day! I mean......how amazing is that. AND I love Elephants so it really was the perfect (and free!!!) costume!
Sometimes things work out, folks....ha!
Okay, well that's all I have for today, I've updated you up until November 2017! :)
I'll be back soon to talk about our two trips to Florida in November and December and to talk about all our home improvements we are doing, also known as "nesting"! haha
See you soon!!!
