I want to apologize in advance for not keeping up with the blogging as I should have been!!! But there is a really great reason for me being so quiet...
My fiancé and I are absolutely over-the-moon excited to be pregnant again after the traumatic loss we had this Summer. I have to remind myself everyday, "I will have my Rainbow Baby!", to get through the extreme sickness (Hyperemesis Gravidarum, if anyone is so unlucky enough to know what it's like) and the fear of another loss. There is a strong heartbeat and everything looks great with baby, so I am staying as positive as I possibly can. This baby is more than worth every miserable day I have had, or will have in the future. I just want to hold him/her in my arms already :) We are pretty sure it's another boy, though.
We are planning on a home birth with our wonderful midwife, and having the gender be a complete surprise. There has already been such an outpour of happiness and support from our loved ones for this pregnancy, this baby is already loved more than words can describe. We are truly blessed. Thank you all so dearly <3
