We Are Having A

I learned what we were having at 14 weeks and 3 days.

Then again at 15


And 17.

By 3 different techs and doctors.

It seems like everyone wanted to know, thankfully they all also asked before looking. Just in case we were team green. Which I do not have the will power for.

So we’re pretty darn confident in knowing that we are having a…


And we couldn’t be more thrilled. I had GRAND plans of doing this amazing ::coughPinterestcough:: post announcing it all – but finally realized I simply don’t have time to pull that off. I found myself with massive writers block while thinking of all the cute ways to tell you. So I went with what I do best – writing it out.

I guess I don’t do secrets well. 😉 But – knowing for a month and only having a few know with us was a little fun.

This pregnancy has been so healing in many ways, terrifying as it is to do all over again. He’s not a replacement for Preston and Julian. Nothing will take their places. But knowing I carry my third son, that this very day in my last pregnancy (18 weeks 5 days) I began the horrific journey of losing his brothers, it’s helping to soothe and mend my always a bit broken heart. I pray so, so hard for this little guy – that my body will carry him to a point we can bring him home in our arms.

We would have been excited no matter what – trust me. My biggest concern was and is simply his health and my body being able to hold on. However I believe God knew that having another little boy would touch my heart in a way nothing else could have.

We are so, so excited for this new little life. Our son. Hang in there little guy. We’re just about halfway to holding you.



More on how I feel about it here…

    Oh wow!!!! I am so excited for your family. I wish you lots of luck in the next few months!!!! Just as a side note….on 3/7/13 I delivered my healthy little guy a year almost to the day of my miscarriage. It was kind if surreal and I felt such relief to have him finally arrive safe and sound. It by no means compares to your situation, but I so look forward to hearing about your little ones safe arrival and knowing the relief you will undoubtably feel. Sending lots of good wishes your way!

    Was looking on babble for you as I hadn’t spotted any posts for a while, click your name and see this was posted really recently.

    So happy for you! And yes, I’m a totally random babble reader :) But still, happy!

    What an amazing blessing! We stayed Team Green for all 3 girls and I secretly loved that it drove our families crazy by not knowing. We’ll continue to pray for the health of your sweet baby boy!

    CONGRATS! I was wondering if I read right that you had to have Lovenox during this pregnancy? If you did could you let me know or write about how that is going? I found out I will have to take it too if I am ever blessed with another. I’m a wee bit scared.

    I would have been thrilled for you to have a little girl, but a little boy just seems right for you. Congratulations!
