In case you don't follow our social media pages, or if you're not on my personal page, we are expecting! This was a pretty big shock to us as it seemed like forever for this to even happen for us. We have a due date of September 17, 2019! If you've been keeping up on the blog, you know that this is a long road for us, as we've lost our first two. 

Once we made it past the first trimester we got a sense of relief. Because let me tell ya, I have been a nervous wreck. And that's saying it lightly. With our second pregnancy, we miscarried somewhere between 8 & 11 weeks. So having to wait that time in between ultrasounds, was a long time. You never know how long 4 weeks really is until you're waiting for something. Once we went in for our 12 week ultrasound, we got to hear the heart beat. Not going to lie, I teared up a bit. Just such a sigh of relief. A little bit of stress has been lifted off our shoulders. We know that we're not 100% in the clear yet, but it's helped me destress a little bit. 

Besides the anxiety about the pregnancy, things haven't been all that bad. With my first two, I had morning sickness like crazy. It seemed like nothing could be kept down. With this one, it comes and goes. Which is kind of nice, but at the same time, I would really like to enjoy a nice meal every now and again. Especially one I've been looking forward to all day. LOL. 

During that appointment, we met with our doctor who by far is the best doctor i've ever met in my life. She made such a great first impression on us, and I know we're in great hands. Which also helps with the anxiety. We were able to get the blood work done for all the genetic testing, and so far that has come back great. Around 20 weeks is when we will find out if there's anything heart related with the baby. So fingers crossed there. Which, if something is wrong, we'll cross that bridge when we need to. Right now we're just trying to keep positive thoughts about it all. 

With the genetic testing we were able to find out the gender, and I'm so thrilled to say ITS A GIRL!!! We were blessed with two beautiful baby boys, and now we get a beautiful little girl. I think I speak for everyone when we say that this baby is going to be spoiled rotten. Talk about a little fashionista! I'm going to have to step up my looks and fashion, because sometimes I look like a swamp animal (and not the cute kind). 

So for now we're just keeping it easy and hoping for the best. I'm going to try to do bumpdates and more blog posts about pregnancy from now on, but I also want to keep it relatable as well. If you have an idea for the blog, just let me know! 

 

Until next time! 

XOXO,

Shawna

  • I am so happy for you both! I will be praying right along with you and all of our family and friends. May God give you a beautiful healthy baby girl! You all have been through so much, and have had to endure more pain and heartache than any young couple should or anyone who wants to be parents.
    But, you have never given up hope and faith. That says ALOT about both of you! I have a feeling your little one will be a beautiful ray of sunshine even on the rainy days. I know I am not around much but, believe me when I say you are both thought of often. May all of your prayers be answered. Congratulations! 😘
