It's been 18 long days since I last posted and I've got a big announcement to make.. the C family is expanding! We are so thrilled to be expecting our second baby. We've been wanting and hoping for this for a while. As happy as I am to be pregnant, I've felt pretty terrible. I pretty much spend my days entertaining Dominic and sleeping when he sleeps. That pretty much cuts out all of my blogging time, as I generally did that at naptime and after he went to bed. I'm starting to feel better now, and I'm really thankful for that.
When did you find out ?: the weekend after Thanksgiving
When are you due?: August 7th
Which makes you how far along?: just over 11 weeks now
Will you find out the gender?: Definitely!
Are you hoping for one or the other?: Not at all. We just really wanted another baby. There are plus sides to having a girl or another boy. If we were to have a boy we would be able to re-use all of our cute clothes from Dominic, plus he would have a brother to play with! But, it would be really neat to have one of each. So we're just anxiously awaiting our "big" ultrasound.
Will your heart condition affect this pregnancy?: I'm hoping not. I had a fabulous pregnancy last time around and I'm hoping for the same this time. I will have to have a couple check-ins with my cardiologist and will have an appointment with a perinatologist to make sure no congenital heart defects are present in the baby. Other than that, all will go as normal.
How do you think Dominic will react to the new baby?: Good question.. ha. I think he'll be great with the baby. He is such a gentle boy and really nice to others. My only concern is his reaction to not being the only child. I'm hoping that he adjusts well.
So that's that! Since I'm feeling better and I'm "out" with this pregnancy I should be back to posting regularly. I'll leave you with a picture I just took yesterday of my tiny bump!
