New(s)

The day before our Florida vacay back in October I faced the facts and ran out and took a home pregnancy test. I saw two lines immediately appear and I sent Colin up to wake up Justin to share the good news... Something seemed off that day - I told Justin to keep it secret and I just felt odd... He didn't share the same feeling and we were off buying "big brother" t-shirts and visiting our parents...



We spent a great week in the sunshine state and I was able to sleep a lot! Our last day of vacation (my birthday), I woke up feeling crampy. I knew something was wrong and called my doctor. Needless to say, we packed up the car knowing what was coming. We ended up getting a hotel in GA and I spent the night awake knowing I just miscarried our little baby. So many emotions. Needless to say, it was one of the worst days of my life.




A few weeks ago, I had a deja vu moment. Same location, same test brand.... same results. I am pregnant and due in September!!! We waited this time to scream it to the world - but this is the same week I was in when I miscarried. This pregnancy doesn't feel "off"- it feels perfect. So I wanted to share my good news because really, I can't stop thinking about it. Say a little prayer for us and our little baby.

Congrats!! Did you and your sis plan on getting pregnant at the same time? That will be so fun to have them close.

Oh and I am sorry to hear about your loss before. I will will say a little prayer for this one for you! I think things happen for a real reason and maybe it just wasnt the right time

I couldn't be more excited to be going through this wonderful experience (stretch marks, bloating, weight gain, etc.) right along with you . . . only I'll be just a bit fatter. Oh my goodness, our kids are gonna be "brothers from another mother" or "sisters from another mister" or something like that.

Oh yeah, and I'm so glad the cat's out of the bag so I can stop spilling your secret.
