Pregnant with Baby BOY #3!

Hello Hello!

I’m back from Iceland. We had the most amazing time and I have so much to share from our trip, but I think the most important piece of news would have to be THIS:

Oh Boy!

Baby BOY #3 is coming our way this April and we couldn’t be more excited!

I’ve been dying to share the exciting news, but after our {missed} miscarriage in July, we wanted to wait until we were more comfortable with everything this time around.

And it was sort of a moment for me yesterday after I shared the news on my personal FB page and on Instagram because after pushing ‘Publish’ I soon realized that yesterday was National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day.

We are so lucky and beyond blessed we were able to get pregnant again so quickly after our loss this summer and after it took about a year of trying for babe #3 – I don’t take this pregnancy or any pregnancy lightly, especially after being a member of the miscarriage club.

And because it happened back to back from the D&C – it’s even more crazy to say that I’ve been pregnant for the past 6 months, but only have 3 months of this baby belly to show for it. My body {and hormones} are slightly all over the place, but I 100% do not mind this belly popping out so early this time around.

We had a doctors appointment on Monday and an ultrasound as well and everything is looking really good, they actually moved my due date up a week! Since all our tests came back and we got to see the little guy being so active on the big screen, we decided to tell the boys the good news.

Once they knew, we were fully aware the whole world would know, so we went with it.

At the ultrasound appointment, the technician was so sweet. She put little “Hi Brooks” and “Hi Graham” notes on the photos for the boys and hooked them up with Big Brother stickers. We took a video of our telling the boys the news and it was so special, I know we will cherish it {and laugh!} forever.

Highlights of telling the boys include:

  • “Mama, how you did that?” – Graham
  • “I’m going to teach him how to play video games every day” – Brooks
  • “Jackson, you’re going to be a big brother again” – Brooks
  • “Are you tricking us? There’s literally a baby in there??” – Graham
  • “Does it come out of your mouth?” – Brooks
  • “Does the doctor pull the baby out with a claw?” – Graham
  • “I can’t wait to babysit!” – Graham

It was very sweet and while it’s only been a day of the boys knowing, they are taking any chance they get to rub my belly and say hi to their new little sibling in the making. I can’t wait to meet this new little boy in April!

Stay tuned for more on all our travels and fun in Iceland along with my thoughts on pregnancy after miscarriage and an update on how the first trimester was for me! And as always, if you have any questions for me – please don’t hesitate to ask!

Thanks so much for following along and for all the sweet messages from our announcement. It all means so much to me and I can’t wait to take you along on this journey with #3!
