Party of Five: [Details]

Wednesday, July 5, 2017

(I'm sure by now you've seen our big news via blog / facebook / IG.) 
Thank you all so much for the sweet support.
Seriously, I/we really appreciate it.
Here are a few more from our (self-timer) announcement pics and some basic details..
I'm 20 weeks along.
Due date is November 20th.
I've been feeling movement now for a few weeks, but the Mr. felt the baby move for the first time last week..!!

We get to see baby and hopefully find out the gender this week. The kids have been so sweet, each predicting their perspective gender. I'm anxiously awaiting a meltdown from the 'wrong' one once we find out (since they've been so adamant in their opinions).
I've had symptoms similar to each of the other pregnancies, so no consistent gender prediction from me (it differs week to week).
Tys & Harps also did a great job keeping our 'secret', only once did Homegirl, out of NO WHERE, blurt out to our neighbors 'mommy has a baby..'.
Overall, I've felt just fine, absolutely nothing to complain about, just very tired. I am already having some sciatic pain which isn't necessarily pleasant, but again, could be worse. 

This pregnancy has been anxiety-filled for me, as we now know, even more-so, nothing is guaranteed. I'm doing my best to let go and enjoy the experience, it's just new territory--pregnancy after loss. I've been so thankful and beyond blessed with such a supportive husband, family, and close friends who've been there for us along the way.
We are so thankful for this blessing and ask for your prayers for a continued safe and healthy pregnancy, baby, momma, and family as we grow into a party of five!! 
We also continue to pray for those waiting for their blessing. 


  1. A baby just before the holidays! How perfect! And how wonderful that you are feeling so good!

  2. Oh, a rainbow baby! How fabulous for you all. I can't imagine the nerves though. Keeping you and your babe in my thoughts and prayers for a healthy, happy pregnancy and delivery.

  3. I'm just ecstatic for you!! May the Lord watch over you and your precious baby and give you peace and joy throughout the rest of your pregnancy. I'll be praying for you, my friend, and I'm always a phone call away! XO - Alicia
