Well, SURPRISE! If we are Facebook or Instagram friends you’ll know our little secret by now. But as some of you are not, here you go…
Due date February 5th.
Having photoshoots with children is somewhat like eating noodles with a spoon. It’s almost impossible. But luckily my husband managed to get a good one.
We are very happy about our news, yet I was slightly hesitant to reveal it to the world. Why? Two reasons.
1)Because I knew it would cause some people I love serious heart break that I was pregnant again, and they were not. I tried to reach out, and personally notify as many of these beloved friends as possible, but amidst the chaos of first trimester sickness- yes I have morning sickness ugh- Tom being away for 2.5 weeks, me working overtime and our air conditioning dying during the week of a 110F (43 C) heatwave, I fear there are some I may have missed.
2) Because I had such horrible pregnancy and post partum last time, announcing that I’m pregnant opened up this whole sea of insecurities in my mind. I quivered as I recalled the PPD, frustration, feeling overwhelmed, feeling guilty, and trips to the emergency room. Then I calmed myself down- I can breathe. I’m not drowning anymore.
Let’s just pray this time around we get both a healthy baby AND healthy momma. And, that if anything does go wrong, that I remember how to swim.
