surprise! i’m pregnant again!

My beautiful friends and family- today is something that I have been wanting to share with you for months. I’m currently pregnant for the third time! We literally cannot be more excited!

As you may recall, I experienced a miscarriage in December. We lost our second child when I was two months pregnant. While we were going through it, Geoffrey and I both agreed that it would be my last pregnancy. I was convinced that it was my fault, and I didn’t want to carry that guilt again. However, shortly after it ended, I knew that I needed to have hope in my life again. I wanted to look forward to raising another tiny human and everything that came along with it. Its perfect scent, its milky breath, its little smiles, its cooing, even the sleepless nights and blowout diapers and colic cries. I wanted Geoffrey to have another child to love and Remy to have a sibling to play with. I wanted our family to grow. So, two months later, we conceived.

I am currently 4.5 months pregnant. Our little babe is due to join us mid-November. I’m scheduled to have my next ultrasound in a week’s times. We can opt to know what the sex is during that appointment, but we have decided to wait again until baby is here. We have so few surprises in life and I love not knowing what I will be having until we meet him or her. It’s usually a shock, but a good one. :-)))

I haven’t yet been as ill this pregnancy as I was with Remy. With her, I was sick several times a day and had the worst migraines. Then I was put on bed-rest at 31 weeks until I delivered her at 38 weeks. With this pregnancy, I’m only sick once or twice a day. So far, I haven’t had one migraine, just regular headaches. However, being ill assures me that baby is healthy and growing. While I don’t wish for it, it does bring me a sense of peace. That said, fingers crossed that I won’t be confined to a bed for my last trimester!

I hope that you will enjoy taking this journey with me. Motherhood is such a wonderful gift, and I’m so lucky to be able to do it once again with another child.

Love you all!

surprise, i’m pregnant!

Baby Anouncement 4Did you see that?! Did you happen read my amazing news in the title?! It turns out that I am pregnant! Cue the choir of angels, pop the champagne bottles, and so on. :-)))

IMG_9659While I am incredibly happy and excited now, this news had initially come as a complete shock to me. Yet, that shock was short-lived. Almost immediately after finding out that we were going to have a baby, the awful morning sickness set in. For the past two and a half months, I have been extremely, extremely ill. Everything from my work life, to my personal life, to my social media life has suffered as a result. Without revealing too much, I will say that I was bedridden during this time with crippling migraines and violent all-day sickness. Then everything suddenly changed last week when I had my first ultrasound. After seeing a tiny beating heart on the screen and such a perfect profile, I felt a change wash over me. Whether it’s because I am out of my first trimester, or because I now know what I am fighting to stay healthy for, for the first time since June I feel truly happy and physically a little bit better. I no longer wanted to keep this news a secret, but to share it with everyone who has been a part of my life over the last two years. So here you go!

Baby Anouncement 5Our little one will be joining our family at the beginning of March 2016. I cannot wait to meet him/her!

Have the most glorious weekend everyone!!
