So, we are extremely thrilled to share exciting news with the world: We are EXPECTING (again)!
With my dearest daughter who is about to turn three this September, this little addition to the family will be unquestionably exciting and Annakate will be very proud to have a sibling this fall.
The ironic part is that I was not expecting myself to be pregnant when I was in Malaysia. I was shocked but amazed at how fertile I was (if you know about my little mishap in November). This state of shock continued for the first few days after the pee stick turned positive. The hormones in me jumped for joy, of course, knowing that I will be creating another little miracle in me for the next nine months.
I have a lot to think about right now. Unfortunately, nothing on my mind is more important than how to keep food down because of hyperemesis gravidium. I had the same thing when I was expecting Annakate. The toilet bowl, the kitchen sink, and the ziplock bags are my best friends now. The only positive note I obtained from all these raging hormones is I am definitely growing a healthy baby in me. That’s what most people tell me. The crazier the hormones, the healthier the baby will be.
I have a lot to pray for too because I am worried that it will not be a sticky bean. I have heard far too many heartbreaking stories and I have gone through it myself; thus, I have so much to be thankful for and will continue to pray this little peanut will grow healthily each day.
Now that I have been ushered into the second trimester, I am ever grateful to the Lord for this little blessing. Forget about the anxiety, exhaustion, nausea, and being unproductive at home, Grace! I have a very important job now: cooking the bun in the oven.
As for the gender reveal, we will find out really soon in a few weeks’ time. Are we rooting for team blue or pink? Stay tuned!
