Pregnant.

Leif and I are pregnant. Again. We actually got pregnant right away after the miscarriage. Its been a bit of an adjustment for me... Going from being pregnant, to not being pregnant to being pregnant again. I haven't been able to pin point how I feel. This time around is so different than my pregnancy with Riley too. I'm actually sick and I feel pregnant. With Riley I didn't really feel pregnant until I felt her kick me for the first time.

Today we got to see baby #2 for the first time. I was so excited. I had been nervous that they wouldn' be able to see anything and the whole 7 minutes before I was sweating and freaking out. But then I saw my little baby up there, kicking, and I saw his (I'm hoping for a boy this time around) little heart beating. It was such a relief and for a moment my mind flashed back to when I was pregnant with Riley, and how its such a blessing and miracle. We got the ultrasound picture and I put it on the fridge where Riley's first ultrasound picture is.

I'm looking forward to the next 7 months. Its going to be different than the first time because in a way I know what to expect, but at the same time, I don't. I know the changes my body will go through but I don't know anything about this baby. The baby is due March 6th, but we'll be having a c-section so most likely the baby will be born in February.

Please pray this pregnancy goes well and doesn't take too much out of me:)!

*Sorry no pictures with this post... I promise next post!
