Pregnancy Announcement + Gender Reveal
SURPRISE!!! I am going to have a baby!!!
Last night we had a gender reveal with loved ones and found out what we are expecting!
We cannot wait to meet our baby!!!
Every year I choose a word as my focus instead of a resolution. This year after much thought, I chose a word I didn’t want to because it scared me… It was TRUST.
Together my husband and I have two sons and we felt a longing in our hearts for another baby… but there was a lot of fear behind that decision if I’m honest. That’s why when I was choosing my word, trust kept coming up.
My last pregnancy in 2015 was miserable. I dealt with debilitating back pain the entire time which resulted in surgery when my youngest son was 12 weeks old and my older son was 3.5. That surgery is why I have spent the last 3 years getting as healthy as I can, to ensure that if we did decide to have another baby that my body would be able to carry it and support it without feeling the way I did last time.
This spring we decided to step out in faith and TRUST that if God wanted another baby for our family, He would provide, or He would remove the desire in our hearts and we could move on.
Our journey to this baby was different with the boys.
There were more tears and questions and fear than ever. I’ll share that side of the story soon, but today, I am so thankful to share that God HAS provided and in April 2019 we will welcome another baby into our family!
A baby girl.
For 7 years I have been a Mama of boys, and in just a few months, we will have a daughter.
A daughter. Wow
I haven’t ever pictured myself as a Mom to a little girl, but I assure you I’m up to the challenge!
The blessing of another baby is not lost on me. My children are my greatest gift, and to be able to experience a little girl and see my boys (including my husband who is over the moon about a daughter) is something I cannot wait to see.
We are still trusting.
We can’t wait to meet our daughter.
“Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders
Let me walk upon the waters
Wherever You would call me
Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander
And my faith will be made stronger
In the presence of my Savior”

I am so excited to share this journey with you all.
I am so thankful God knows exactly what we need, exactly when we need it.
His timing is always perfect.

Your oldest is so funny! I hope he came around to the news. Haha. I can’t wait to follow along on this journey with you!
He will be ok, just thought it was a boy! Thankfully, I know when she arrives he’ll fall madly in love with her!
We added a baby girl to our family when our boys were 10 and 13. It’s a whole new world! Congratulations!! Curious did this have anything to do with your decision to leave WW?
Feel free to message me at my email below if you’d like to check out our family on FB.
Not really… I left WW before getting pregnant. There is more to that story I will share soon.
Congrats to you and your family. Enjoy your pregnancy and the fam you have. Thank you for your positive outlook on life. Rose
Thank you so much, Rose!
