Well, if you couldn't tell from the rest of our blog- were pregnant! :)
Obviously Adam and I have known for a while- I took a test the Monday after Thanksgiving and didn't have to wait longer than 2 seconds for it to come up positive.
Don't be offended that we haven't told you- we told no one anything. Pregnancy is scary after a miscarriage- even at 19 weeks I still get nervous at times. Plus, we had tried for SO long for this baby, it seemed impossible that it was really true. Only our families, and those who see me all the time know. (And I didn't have to tell those who see me- you can tell :)
This pregnancy has been a bit harder than Logan's which has made me more wary as well. I carry the same (though bigger) but I am on blood thinners (yay to daily injections) and have had some morning sickness and LOTS of growing pains. All fairly normal, but I am listed a bit higher risk due to my miscarriage and blood issues. Still- it could be SO much worse.
And take note that I am NOT complaining- I am more grateful than anything to be having this baby! We are SO blessed. Right now I crave anything salty and red meat (which is SUPER weird for me) have not wanted chocolate at all, and am fully out of even fat clothes- its all maternity from here on in baby! I am only now starting to get some energy back, right as my little thing has decided to make its presence known! (Aka, lots of kicking.)
We had our big ultrasound today, and unlike with Logan who I KNEW was a boy, I had no idea. I was thrilled to find out we are having a little girl! She looks perfect, wouldn't show me her face (just like her brother) and is measuring right on time. We are pretty positive we will be naming her Monica Diane- Monica cuz I love it, and Diane after my best friend Becky.
I am due August 4th and am going to attempt a VBAC. Which is even scarier on blood thinners cuz it means there is a 50% chance I will have to do it natural. I really actually didn't want to try for a VBAC at all but all my doctors have been suggesting it so were taking the plunge. Natural is scary for me because the most natural I get is using organic conditioner. There has been LOTS of research going on.
Here are the pictures from our ultrasound today- no good profiles cuz she wouldn't stop going fetal (pun intended haha) but you can see there is no doubt- in a few months I will have someone ELSES toenail to paint :)
