Thought I should probably post my big announcement on this blog as well.

I'm pregnant! 9 weeks 1 day along today...and feeling like crap. :)

Smells are horrible, I get crazy headaches, I am dizzy all the time, and nausea is overwhelming. Bloated like crazy (or already showing- who the heck knows). The things we voluntarily do to have a little one- sheesh! Haha.

Pregnancy this time has definitely brought on an array of emotions- much different than last time. I've told myself SEVERAL times over the last 2 years that I couldn't wait to be pregnant, I was just scared about the actually having a baby at home part. Now, not so much. I must have done a great job at blocking out the bad parts of pregnancy in my mind- because being back in it- they instantly came flooding back. I do NOT love being pregnant. Pregnancy sickness is horrid, it's like the stomach flu 24/7. Luckily they have medication to help out now...or I'd be completely useless. Aaron has been AMAZING to me- he has cooked just about all of our meals, cleans the house...and even found time to surprise me with a gift certificate for a massage. I can't explain how blessed I feel this time around to have such a supportive man by my side- he makes life so much easier for me. Having said that- I am SO thankful that I have the opportunity to be pregnant again.

I'm already very scared about the way this baby is going to make his/her appearance. My last labor experience was very traumatic- ending in an emergency c section. This time I can try for a VBAC (vaginal birth after Cesarean) or have a scheduled c-section. I'm very back and forth on this. It's an emotional decision for me- and one I don't think I'll be making until close to my due date.

I just wanted to say thank you to everyone for their continued love and support. We are VERY excited to start our forever family with this little one- and I am completely terrified at the same time. I'll continue to write my personal feelings on this blog- as well as pictures of the already growing bump and what not.

Love you all.


  1. Congrats!! I'm terrified to get pregnant again, not just for the having a baby at home, but because my first one was so horrible, and then the adoption. Anyways, good luck!! :O)

  2. Yay!!!! Congratulations!!!! Such great news. I have to morning sickness was awful but now it seems so far away...I know if I am blessed to have children in the future I will be soo excited but the memories of pregnancy will probably be less romantic than I remember.

  3. Hi, new reader and adoptive mom here. Kennedy is gorgeous!

    Congrats on your pregnancy! I look forward to following along. :)
