I’m Pregnant! | Personal

The news is FINALLY out – I am officially 18 weeks pregnant today 🙂

A lot of people know that I’ve wanted another baby for quite some time now.  I love everything about them, and I love being a mama.  Sometimes I feel like if I did nothing else in this life, raising little girls was enough to leave my mark on the world.  I was meant to do this.

We found out I was pregnant on the morning of my birthday in March.  What a gift!  I must say this baby is one of the best birthday presents I’ve ever received.

Denzel and I are absolutely ecstatic, and cannot wait to meet this little person in November.  It’s been a rocky ride with first trimester nausea, and now second trimester exhaustion…but I wouldn’t trade it for anything.  Feeling kicks for the past few weeks has been worth the crappy feelings.

Business had to come to a complete stop for a couple of months, because I was really not feeling up to much.  I had to live off of gum and crackers for a long time, and there were days I didn’t want to get out of bed.  I feel horrible about having to abandon work like that, but I made it through and as soon as I was feeling better powered through all the leftover edits I had to do.  Now I’m back to a 2 week turnaround, and working on getting even faster (which with a full time job, 2 kids and pregnancy…that’s not too bad).

I want to share my pregnancy journey with everyone, so I’ll be posting updates occasionally 🙂

Maybe 6 weeks along… 

Ultrasound at 8 weeks.

 

  14 week mini-bump!

16 weeks along, can still button size 5 jeans without wanting to scream, haha.

And now 18 weeks today!!  Baby is 5.5 inches long, kicking up a storm, and loves skittles, starburst, lemonade, turkey sandwiches, Greek salads, and vinegar 🙂
