You know that feeling when you’re a few days late, and you decide you should probably go ahead and take a pregnancy test just to be safe? Well, I do. I’d actually been there a few times over the past year. My cycles weren’t exactly perfect since I was still breastfeeding, and I honestly didn’t think much of being a few days late.
My husband Kyle and I already had our wonderful one-year-old Reese and were sure we wanted another child. That being said, we weren’t trying, and that big fat positive came as a happy surprise.
We are still so happy and feel very blessed. I am having another hard pregnancy though. I had extreme morning sickness with my first, and it is back in full force for my second. I am working with my doctor to try to control some of the symptoms, but I’ve been having a very hard time. Trying to chase a toddler while feeling like an absolute dumpster fire is no joke.
Our new little bundle of joy is due on 11/11, which we think is kinda cool. My 30th birthday is just a few days before on the 8th, so there is a very good chance I’ll be celebrating my 30th birthday while giving birth. Ha!
