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 🙂
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 🙂
