Had my very first appointment today and the estimate is that I am 13 weeks pregnant. My due date is May 14th which is right before my oldest daughters birthday. I had a friend ask me how I kept my pregnancy a secret for so long. I knew as soon as I told the world that it would be real, it’s not that we don’t welcome another baby it’s just that we thought we would have more time.
More time between children like we wanted but life doesn’t always go as planned. We are so very happy to extend our family, it’s been a rough year. They say where there is death there is life and this year our family experienced a lot of death. As family leaves us new family is born and we will all meet again in heaven.
I know my mother in law is looking out over us and is happy. I know she’s wishing for a Grandson. This pregnancy is bittersweet because she won’t be here. She was my solid rock during every one of my pregnancies. She loved being a Grandmother. She was there when Brooklin was born, and as a scared young girl helped guide me to be the mother I am to Kaila. This pregnancy feels bittersweet because she’s not here to do this with me.
So I’m pregnant. Maybe I’ll have a picture to share soon.
