Coming Fall 2012







Yep yep yep! You read that right. Baby girl is going to be a big sister! Seems like it's one big pregnant party in blog land right now so if you're not pregnant yet, feel free to join in on the festivities anytime. :)

P.S. These pictures were taken at high noon with an uncooperative toddler. I must say I am pleased with how they turned out despite the obstacles. :)

Due Date: October 15, 2012

What caught me by surprise: How quickly I am showing this time. When they say you show earlier with your second, they weren't kidding.  7 weeks in and I already can't fit into two of my fave pairs of jeans.

Baby's size: A blueberry

Planned pregnancy?: Most definitely

How long did it take?: Two months. The hubs has reminded me many times how blessed I am. It only took two months to get pregnant with both of my children. (Wow that feels weird to say: "both of my children")

Side note: I took a pregnancy test 2 days before I was scheduled to start my period and got a negative. Had what I thought was a period (abnormal for implantation) and a week and a half later took another pregnancy test just to quiet my nagging disappointment. I was pleasantly surprised with two lines!

Things I am looking forward to: My growing belly and my first appointment.
