26 WEEK PREGNANCY UPDATE

I cannot believe I’m only about three months away from birthing this child! It’s crazy how long ago it seems that I found out I was pregnant, but then the countdown once I hit the halfway mark has been going at lightning speed. I remember being around this point with Petra in the womb and still having so much to do to prepare for her arrival. It’s the same this time around.

This time around, I think I’ll be closer to half way when I announce things. Perhaps Father’s Day when I’m exactly 20 weeks and know the gender already is when I’ll make it all known. We’ll see what happens because so much is up in the air about what life will be like in the world during that time.

I Guess I’m Pregnant!

Pregnancy Test 2

So, I guess we’re embarking on a new journey and sometimes it’s still hard to believe that I’m pregnant with baby number two. There are so many emotions that flew through my mind on February 27th as I saw the positive line show up after I peed on a pregnancy test. Let’s rewind a little bit so I can take you through the process of even getting to this point. Continue reading
