I miss catching up with blogging friends through reading others' posts and writing comments that are well deserved. I miss the "me time" that I used to give myself after putting the little one to bed, and typing non stop on the keyboard until I could hardly hold my head up. I miss putting my thoughts and my family experiences with pictures out on the world wide web (aside from Facebook, Twitter and Instagram).
It seems as though I lost my "blogging self" for awhile. I have still written random thoughts into a journal that I have been keeping. To catch you up a little on what has been going on with me, well that would take more than one post...which it's going to, so bear with me.
Here's the main thing that have been going on with me in the last few months.
Most importantly that definitely needs to be mentioned here on this blog is the biggest change yet that our family of three is going to experience.
We're going to become a family of 4!
Most of you probably have already heard the news in some form of social media or another. As you may recall on this post and this photo in March, we were just beginning to announce that we were "officially trying" to grow our family. Well, little did we know at that time...we had already conceived #2. We definitely didn't expect it to happen so quickly, since Annaliese took 5 months to conceive and even that was fast for us.
So there you have it Blog, we're gonna have a baby!
|2 days before my 30th birthday(April 4th), I took my first pregnancy test|
|Annaliese is excited to become a Big Sister! We announced the news to our close friends and family at my Surprise 30th Birthday Party on April 6th.|
|On April 23rd, we made the grand Facebook announcement.|
Tomorrow on June 21, I will be 17 weeks along already. We are officially due on November 29, which is the day after Thanksgiving. However, since I delivered almost 2 weeks early with Annaliese ...and on a full moon, I am going to make an educated guess and say that I will probably deliver early with this baby and for kicks, lets just say around the full moon on November 17. Justin and I are waiting to find out the sex this time and I couldn't be more excited!
Already this pregnancy differs much from my first. Pretty much ever since I found out I was pregnant...I was sick...all day for over month. Luckily in mid-May, I found the culprit and switched prenatal vitamins and have been fine ever since! :) Also a few weeks ago, I had some really bad dizziness to where I passed out. Thank God that Justin was here working from home that day because I don't want to know what would've happened in any other case. I have also had really had sciatica pain very early this time around whereas with my first pregnancy, I didn't get bad back pain until I was over 30 weeks pregnant. Hoping some physical therapy or chiropractic assistance will help!
So because this has been the main thing going on with us, I figured I would get back on the blogging radar with this announcement, and will be filling in the timeline within the next few posts. I promise it won't be a month until they happen. I need to spit them out soon so I can get back onto track with actual current events :)
For those of you who are still around to read this blog, thanks for your patience and support!
