One More Heart

pregnancy announcement

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Kevin and I feel immensely blessed and are so excited to share that we’re adding 1 more heart to our growing family. I’m pregnant! We are eternally grateful for this gift of a healthy pregnancy and another baby on the way.

Though this will be our 2nd child, this is my 3rd pregnancy. Please let this be a sliver of hope for any woman reading this who has experienced pregnancy loss. There can be light after heartbreak and you are not alone.

I’ve been waiting so long to share this news with you! Due in early July, I’m 20 weeks along already. I can’t believe we’re halfway there. (The photos in this post were taken a month ago and my bump is 100x larger now. You show a lot earlier in your 2nd pregnancies!!)

Experiencing my 1st trimester during my busiest time of year (holidays!)– while also chasing around a 2 year old– has made this pregnancy fly by. I feel healthy, strong, and ready to be a working mother of 2. Noelle says “big sister” all the time, though I’m not sure she knows what’s about to rock her world. We count our blessings every single day. 🙂

We know the sex, but are keeping it a surprise for most. We can’t wait to introduce our baby to you all!

I’m already prepping summer content for my time off, so send over any recipe ideas! Thank you for sharing this special time with us as we focus on welcoming another bundle of joy. xo

  11. How Wonderful, Blessings to you and your family. As a “Nana” to 6 its such a exciting time. Hope everything goes according to plans. Congrats.

  12. Congrats!

  13. So Exciting! You’re an “old pro” now, and you’ll find yourself very different with the 2nd than the first (not so obsessive/freaked out about it all!) You will realize that yes, you can do this “Mama” thing and do it pretty well (most of the time!) and there are those “little things” that aren’t near as important as you thought they were to be so concerned over. Hopefully the postpartum won’t be so bad with this one either.

    Congratulations! And thank you for sharing your great news with us. Wishing you all my best.

    Congratulations! And you are right about not giving up hope. My oldest daughter had two miscarriages between her firstborn and her last, with a seven year age difference. She never told me until she was safely pregnant with her second born, because she knew I would worry about her health. Finding out at that time was a hard thing to hear among the joy, but knowing my daughter, I had to accept her explanation. Water over the bridge now, the boys are 15 and 8 years old. I hope you have a blessed and comfortable 2nd half!

  16. Congratulations on your growing family. This child will be welcomed and blessed to be in your family. And the memories when she or he grows up of the great stuff mom baked! Awesome!
