We are going to be a family of 4...

 
So if you follow me on Instagram (and you should be), then I let some really huge news get out...

In March, Sweet Pea is getting promoted to big sister!



We got our BFP on July 16, which as some of you may know, that day isn't a good day for me at all, so it was truly wonderful to see those two little pink lines.

I went to the doctor for my yearly exam a few days later. They told me it took a while to show up which just meant that I was early. 4 weeks, 5 days by my calculations. But we at least felt comfortable enough to tell our immediate families.

Waiting for my ultrasound felt like FOREVER! I was so scared. I found out with Sweet Pea when I was already 7 weeks, so finding out that early made the whole process more nerve racking.

Appleseed's First Ultrasound

I had my first ultrasound when I was 6 weeks, 4 days. Baby had a strong heartbeat and was measuring perfectly.

I'm sorry it has taken this long to announce on here. We had to call family members and make sure grandparents, great-grandparents, etc knew before we could tell anyone. Thank you to everyone who has sent the congrats, we really appreciate it!

I am 8 weeks today and although not suffering from the exorcist-like nausea I did experiences with Sweet Pea, I am still having my moments. So far though, this has been such a smoother pregnancy *knock on wood*. No weird red splotchy skin this time around, except the weird spots on my face are still showing, but my Pond's BB Cream (review to come) is helping with that.

Anyways, thank you all for bearing with me with my lack of posts and I hope to keep updating you all each week! :)
