We’re having a baby!
It’s so surreal. In less than 5 months I’ll be a mom again and I cannot believe it.
The past 4 months have been absolutely insane. Everything I could have ever wanted happened all at once, and I’m thanking my lucky stars every single day for the good karma brought my way.
At the beginning of March I was hired full time at my first real grown up job. I work Monday to Friday regular daytime hours with every weekend off and even my very own desk! The best part is that Chris and I now work together. His company had an opening that he though I would be perfect for, so I applied and a week later I was in. It all happened so fast that I couldn’t catch my breath.
About a month into working my new job, I started noticing how tired I was. I was stressed and emotional, but figured that was because things were really changing- we had put Holly into daycare before and after school so I was having a hard time adjusting to not seeing her as much.
There was one particular morning where I threw up and finally put the pieces together. I ran out and bought two tests which of course came up positive. We had been so busy adapting to our new life that I didn’t notice I was pregnant!
It’s crazy how it all worked out. At first I thought it was the worse possible timing- I just got a new job and now I have to tell them!? After I really thought about it, I realized that it truly is the best possible timing. A year after graduating, I finally have a career. I doubled my salary from my previous job which is allowing us to start saving for a house and prepare for the baby without any stress.
At 11 weeks we decided to tell our families and our girls. Everyone has been so happy and supportive, which is making the overall experience amazing. Our girls are dying to know if it’s a boy or a girl (which we find out next week) and never stop talking about the baby.
I’m currently 19 weeks and so excited and antsy for this little girl or boy to make his or her arrival in 5 months!
