Lee and I both realize that while most people are very happy for us during this exciting time, there are also people that are quick to judge.
So I just wanted to address a couple questions that people may be asking!
You're so young, why so soon? Don't you want to wait until your more settled in life?
We realize that for a lot of people this may seem super quick. But for us, it was a long thought out process. Both of us are very ready to have a baby (well, as ready as you can be!! :) and have been for quite awhile now. Everyone is ready at a different time, and whether sooner or later... that is okay!
an accident unplanned?
NO. Much to some people's surprise, Lee and I had been trying to get pregnant for 5 months before we actually landed pregnant. We decided to keep it on the down low that we were trying just so we could enjoy that time together. I really liked Lee and I being the only ones to know for awhile.. it was a really special time between the two of us. It also made for a wonderful, shocking surprise to tell my family!! :)
I also want to say, that no matter if this child was planned or not planned he or she would be loved just the same. Life is such a gift!
Lee and I feel blessed beyond words to be given this opportunity to be parents. Neither of us take this gift lightly. At times, I am overwhelmed that God has entrusted this sweet baby to us. I feel undeserving, but so so blessed.
Here are some random facts about baby right now:
Today I am 15 weeks! This is going so fast!
The baby is the size of a ORANGE!
I am showing just a tiny bit. Although, I think sometimes I get bloating and the baby bump confused ha
I have been feeling pretty good lately. The second trimester is treating me well :) Besides some certain, occasional pregnancy discomforts... which I won't get into on here. ;)
I am eagerly waiting to feel our sweet little one in there! I still have a few weeks to go, but I can only imagine how amazing it will be to feel him or her swimming around in there!
We both LOVE our midwife and we've only met with her once. I feel so thankful that we found such a perfect match for our little family!
Sometimes I am moved to tears just thinking about how much I love this baby. I can't even begin to describe how I feel about our little one. It's a love that is impossible to explain in words.
