We couldn’t be happier that we’re having a baby!
It feels so good to let it out. I had no idea what to expect when expecting, but I’ve learned pretty quickly to just go with it. There are foods that make my stomach turn with just a thought and smells that make me gag.
There are nights where I can’t sleep and mornings that I have to drag myself out of bed. I had an episode of dehydration during one of the worst Houston rain storms we’ve ever experienced, that was so miserable and very scary. I didn’t know what was going on, but after spending all day at the E.R. getting fluids, I make sure that I’m constantly drinking water.
With all of that being said, I am just so happy to think that our little baby is in here growing! In an instant, I feel like my whole life has changed. All of a sudden all the nonsense that I used to stress out about doesn’t matter. I feel this bond with my husband that has brought us closer than ever before. Even though I’ve had more bad days than good, I know it will all be worth it when we get to meet this little guy or girl! We don’t know what we’re having, yet.
We got to see the baby at our last doctor’s appointment and I fell completely in love. It was absolutely perfect sitting there, safe and sound, so content. It was a very emotional experience for me that made it all so real. I couldn’t be happier and look forward to being a mommy!
