Weeks 11 & 13

I had my 16 week appointment today and am trying my best to catch up on this little blog while I have an hour to spare! I took a half day from school and Em is napping at her sitter. Even though I'd love to get the little lady early.. we'd have Godzilla on our hands for the rest of the night if I woke her from her nap. Girl loves (and NEEDS) her naps! ;)

I haven't been doing my best taking belly bump pictures, but I promised myself I would do a better job than when I was pregnant with Em. I took a lot of bump pictures with Emersyn, but not in an organized way - so it's hard to tell dates/how I was feeling/etc! And this mama brain forgets things pretty easily these days. :) I'll have a 16 week bump update later this week, but for now here are weeks 11 & 13... and 14! Xoxo.

I'm not in maternity pants yet - but they are getting tighter by the day! I'm trying to hold off until Maxi Skirt Season.. but we will see. :) Xoxo.

Oh, Baby, Baby!

Well it's official! We are pregnant! Baby Lee is set to Arrive on August 16, 2015.. but if you ask my opinion - I think he/she is going to come in early August. I know the U.S. technicians are the experts but I am pretty positive I am a bit farther along than they think.. or maybe that's just my growing belly talking! ;)

We are so excited and blessed.

Before this pregnancy we got pregnant in September, and lost the baby in late October. Baby stopped growing at 5 weeks and I started bleeding around 8. It was a roller coaster of emotions and something that I don't wish upon anyone - although I know I am not alone at all. We didn't tell many people, but the people that we did tell had story after story (most of them personal stories) of similar experiences. It really was comforting... and the small group of people that knew were so comforting and sweet. 

Anyway - fast forward to December - and I was concerned that my period hadn't shown up yet.. and then I started feeling a little sick.. and I just had a feeling - so I took a test.. and Voila! Honestly - it was exactly what I had hoped for but I didn't want to get my hopes too high because I didn't want to be disappointed. 

We had an appointment the day after Christmas to confirm that I was indeed pregnant and to "date" the pregnancy. Babe had a strong heartbeat and was measuring 6 weeks 5 days at that time.

We had another appointment at 11 weeks and 5 days.. and we got another Ultrasound where we could see baby and his/her tiny legs kicking. The doctors have been so sweet. They know I've been through a miscarriage so when they couldn't find the heartbeat right away, they immediately went for the U.S. which was a relief.

I am hopeful. I am praying every day.. and I do think this little baby is the rainbow at the end of a storm. We are so thankful. Here is how we announced to our family and friends!
