Baby Bump

Today was our first doctor's appointment! Jeremy and Natalee both came. Thank goodness Jeremy has an awesome boss, there is no way I could have heard everything I was being told AND tried to entertain Natalee Grace! The appointment was nothing fancy, just a lot of information. The normal eat right, exercise, don't scoop the poop, no weird fish, circumcision if it's a boy talk. We have a due date...September 4th! My birthday is September 7th and Jeremy's birthday is September 13th. This will be the best birthday present yet! We are so excited to be a family of FOUR. Wow, what does that even mean?
I would be lying if I said I wasn't nervous. Staying home with Natalee on some days can already be quite the challenge. Adding another little baby, a strong-willed toddler, and a growing children's boutique seems like a lot on a plate! I am happy to announce that I am ready for the challenge. I have always dreamed of being a mom. THAT was my ultimate career. I cannot wait to stay at home, from the beginning, with this baby. I for see lots of jammie days in our near future. I hope that I can be a great mom to two children. What a responsibility. I hope that Natalee and her new baby brother or sister will be the best of friends, just like my brother and I are. I hope that I can give them the individual attention they will both need. I hope that I can get Natalee potty trained before she is 15! I hope my head stays on my shoulders and I can still count to 5 through all of this.
I know that all of my hopes and dreams are not realistic, but I might as well shoot for them. Everyday is not going to be unicorns and rainbows....probably more cow manure and thunder...but I will still take that to have the title of "mom." There is no greater accomplishment.
I got a call from the doctor today, concerning my lab work. As you may know, I have hypothyroidism, which makes getting pregnant a lot more difficult. She was calling to see what dose of medicine I was currently on, and to see when I last got my blood work done. She also said she wanted a sonogram scheduled for the next time we meet, just to make sure everything looks good for the baby. She said people with hypothyroidism also run a higher risk of miscarriage, so we are going to take a look and make sure everything is on track. The "M" word....I am not a fan of this word at all. I know this is just Satan's way of trying to steal my joy and keep me scared. I know that God is faithful, and I know that He has seen us through one healthy pregnancy already. Please say a little prayer that everything will indeed look great, which I am sure it will. I would appreciate it.
On a positive note, I will get the little "bean" sonogram! Our first sonogram with Natalee was at 18 weeks and she looked like a little gummy bear, so it will be exciting to see a little bean hopping all over the screen.


  1. congrats on your baby to come. It will be fun and you will do great with 2;) Don't worry. It does get crazier the more you add to your bunch...come over here if you need a visual on what a "zoo" looks like. :) I'm sure things will be great with your baby #2.

  2. Thanks! We are really excited, and looking forward to the zoo! LOL
