I know I have been a little MIA, but I have a good excuse. Back on September 6th we found out some big news in our family!
We are expecting our second baby!!!
I was completely surprised when I read the test. I didn’t think it was real, and now that I’m 18 weeks along, I still don’t believe it.
Getting pregnant with Parker took awhile and we decided to seek fertility treatment. I went through an Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) on December 31, 2016. We got extremely lucky and it worked the first time. The odds of it working on the first try are very low.
We are forever grateful for the journey we went through to get Parker. Moving forward to grow our family, we weren’t sure if we would have to go through IUI again. We decided to start trying to see if it would happen on it’s own, assuming it would take awhile. However, to our excitement it happened much quicker that we thought.
This bundle of joy is due on May 15th, but will most likely be induced a week earlier on May 8th! My first doctors appointment I expressed my concerns about going to my due date, let alone past it. Parker was 10 pounds, 10 ounces and he was only a week past due.
With Parker we found out at 16 weeks the gender. This time around we are just waiting for the anatomy scan which will take place on January 7th! Until then we will be counting down the days to find out who this sweet baby is, that will join our family!
I hope you all follow along as our family grows by one!
