The Cat’s Outta The Bag

When it rains, it pours… and I’m posting twice in the same day after a 4-month hiatus. I figured now is as good a time as any since the news will be traveling down the good ol’ grapevine pretty soon…

It's a Boy

Although we are super-excited that we’ll be adding a rainbow baby boy to our ranks this year, we haven’t been eager to share the pregnancy news because of last time. The first three months were anxiety-ridden and each day seemed like an eternity, wondering if I would miscarry again. I breathed a sigh of relief when I got past twelve weeks… then thirteen… fourteen.

Because I’m Rh-negative, all my pregnancies are high-risk and I need to see a specialist, in addition to my regular prenatal appointments. I had my first specialist appointment this week and everything looks great, so even though I know something could happen at anytime, it’s a relief to know that – at almost 20 weeks – medical intervention is possible at this stage.

I’m trying to take it one day at a time, enjoy the kicks that are becoming stronger and more consistent, and avoid the scale at all costs. Wish me luck!

    1. Thanks! And it seems like congrats are in order for you, too! My “little blue baby bump” already feels really big, and I’m only halfway. It doesn’t help to see other skinny preggo mamas. *sigh*

  1. Hi Karla! I’m just getting caught up with the rest of the world. So sorry to hear about all you guys have been going through but glad you also have some good news as well. Congratulations!! Baby boys are lovely aren’t they? Haha, they’re all I know! Let us know if you need anything!

    1. Thanks Alicia. I saw your latest post with the nursery and your two boys. Ah, what a handful! Phil and I have been joking about how we’d feel about the baby’s gender, because we already have each “kind” and feel like we know what we’re in for! Either way, there’s something to groan about. Hehe. We’re excited!

  2. Karla!! it’s been so long! Congrats! I will keep you in my prayers! Send me an email would love to catch up. Not really on Twitter much!! xo Katey (Lincoln) Besse
