If you don’t get it right away, take a close look at the picture. I’ll even give you some hints: pickles, ice cream, Abel’s shirt …
Yes, that’s right, we are expecting baby number two!
I could not be more excited to finally be sharing the news with the world! We feel so blessed to be welcoming another little one into our family this fall. I keep looking at Abel as he runs around all day — he’s so happy and energetic and is constantly making us laugh — I can’t believe I get to have another one. Daniel and I have always wanted a big family and to have our children close in age, even though we know it will be absolute craziness (hopefully a happy kind of crazy?). And yes, I am a little bit worried about making the jump from one to two kids so soon because I already feel like I have my hands full 150-percent of the time with Abel, but I just keep telling myself that people do it all the time. No big deal, right? Ha …
Daniel is positive this one is a girl and I think he might be right. This pregnancy has already been so different than my pregnancy with Abel. With him, I was never sick and hardly had any symptoms. It was the easiest pregnancy ever. But this time I’ve been super nauseated, have had killer headaches, and there are so many foods I can’t eat because just the sight or smell of them makes me feel sick. I’ve pretty much been eating nothing but bland food for the past three months. At my last appointment, my doctor even told me most of her patients say they’re more sick with girls than with boys. I guess only time will tell!
FYI, I am the most impatient person in the world, so having to wait until 20 weeks to find out the sex is killing me. How am I supposed to plan my life???
Part of me wants it to be a boy so Abel can have a brother really close in age to be best friends with. Also, if it’s a boy, we really won’t have to buy anything, so that would be a bonus. But another part of me wants it to be a girl, so I can have a daughter to be best friends with. Either way, it really doesnt matter to us. We just want to be holding a happy, healthy baby in our arms come November.
Thanks for sharing in this happy news with us! I can’t wait to write more about this pregnancy. Stay tuned!
