Baby no. 2 is on its way! Logan and are so grateful for this blessing and we can’t wait to add another little one to the fam. I thought I would share some details on here for those that are interested.
1. Was it planned?
YES! We were/are so looking forward to having another baby. We haven’t had a hard time getting pregnant but other things in life have gotten in the way for the last year or so. When it felt like the right time to try, we were beyond excited about having another baby.
2. When did you find out?
We actually found out on Mother’s Day! It was kind of funny actually. For whatever reason I was just having one of those days (probably because I was pregnant and hormones!) where everything felt like it was going wrong in life and I was feeling super negative. I was sure I wasn’t pregnant that month and while I was talking to Logan about being down he was like “wait when can you take a test?” I looked at the calendar and realized that I could take the test. I took the cheap dollar store test and after a few minutes there were two lines! My mood obviously shifted and we were both SO happy. But just to be safe I bought more test and kept taking them over the next few days just to be sure haha.
3. How far along are you? When’s your due date?
I’m 13.5 weeks right now and the due date is January 22nd! Which is kind of fun, because it’s my Moms birthday ❤️. Gemma and this little one will be about 4 years apart.
4. Has this pregnancy been different than with Gemma?
Totally different!! I was sick with Gemma for the first trimester, I threw up everyday a few times until about 14 weeks. This pregnancy I’ve definitely had my times of feeling nauseous but it’s way more manageable, and I haven’t had to throw up. Yay!! But the lack of energy has been the same with this baby as it was with Gemma. There have been a few days where I’ll get a good 8 hours of sleep and decide I need a nap at 10am. I’m feeling much more energetic now!
5. Is Gemma excited for the baby?
She’s been so funny about it. She’ll say things like “there’s a baby in Mommy’s belly!” And “can I see the baby?” She even kissed my belly the other day voluntarily and it was so cute but most of time I don’t think she remembers or really realizes what’s going on, especially since I don’t really have a bump yet.
6. How did you find out the gender so early?
We found out yesterday! We were so anxious to know, and my friends had told me about going to this ultrasound place, where they’ll tell you the gender as soon as 13 weeks, and if they can’t tell you 100 percent, you can come back in a week or two for free! So I figured, why not? We were both pretty sure it was a boy and we all we randomly wearing blue to the appointment. We told the tech that we thought it was a boy. What we didn’t tell her is that Logan and I were both hoping for a girl. So when she told us she went …” well, it’s not a male!” And I was like “it’s a female?!” haha not “it’s a girl?” We’re pretty surprised!!
Well I think that’s pretty much all I have to share! So excited for January and this baby girl!
