yes, you read correctly!! bella is going to be a big sister come may!!
we found out in August that i am with child and that my due date is may 16th. we are thrilled, as we definitely want/wanted bella to have a sibling.
so far this pregnancy has been drastically different from my first. jason often says that i only spent an hour vertical during the first trimester of my pregnancy with bella. this time around, thankfully, that has not been the case... if anything i have been too vertical : ) just been tired and had some nausea here and there... but i am now in the second trimester so even that little bit of discomfort should be on it's way out very soon!! as friends & family keep reminding me- maybe this time we'll have a little boy... who knows?!?! honestly, i will be happy with either- i love dreaming about having 2 little girls only 2 years apart who i can dress in matching clothes and watch be best friends... but then i also love the idea of having a little boy, esp. to see jason experience a son and because neither of us are convinced we'll go for a third : )
either way we are praying for a healthy and happy baby!! and are so thankful for a great ultrasound at 8 weeks and getting to hear a strong heartbeat at 12 weeks!!
i have started pointing to my belly and telling bella that there is a baby in it... she then lifts up her shirt as if searching for the baby in hers ~ don't think she quite knows what is going on : ) but in due time, she will!!
