Our 4th of July baby!

Surprise! We are expecting baby #2! I bet you are just as surprised as we were when we found out! And how fun is this, he or she are due on the 4th of July!

My son Trent took about 18 months to conceive! He took dozens of pregnancy tests, ovulation tests, you name it we definitely tried it and nothing seemed to work! It was devastating! There we were about 2 weeks from seeing an infertility specialist and my first positive pregnancy test showed up just in the nick of time! He’s seriously a miracle. In so many ways! Now here we are after not trying at all and pregnant! Crazy how life works right?!

I feel bad saying I was in tears of fear, guilt, you name it I was feeling it right when I took this test! I had never planned to have babies this close, 14 months apart, but how fun will this be for them?! We will just be in crazy town for a while and that is perfectly fine by us! We are thrilled and feel so lucky to be given another baby!

This baby is already keeping us on our toes! I received a call a couple weeks after our first ultrasound saying they need a repeat ultrasound and wouldn’t say why. I mean my heart sank and that yucky anxious feeling took over! The first thing we were told was this baby might have miscarried and that’s why they need another ultrasound. Bring in the tears. I was devastated. Who wants to hear that?! We hadn’t planned on this baby so soon, but this rush of love took over and absolute fear. Was this my fault? What did I do wrong?

Luckily that little heart was beating away and we listened to that sweet noise twice. That is seriously the sweetest sound ever. Baby is growing away and right on track now! Hoping this babe stays strong and all goes smooth! We love you so much already sweet baby! This baby will complete our family and we couldn’t be more excited to be a family of four.
