Mother's Day:: We Had A Baby!!

SURPRISE!! We had a baby!!

As you can tell, I took a break from blogging over the past year. Putting these posts together was always something I really enjoyed doing, but for whatever reason, I lost interest in it there for a while. In hindsight, I regret not documenting my pregnancy journey, because it was QUITE the journey. I decided it was time to get back to it now that my son is starting to hit some milestones and hope to share some of the highlights (and lowlights) from the past year as well. So here we go!

On Mother's Day weekend of last year, I found out that I was pregnant. Michael and I were both so excited to be growing our little family although it happened a little sooner than we were expecting! We decided we would start trying to have a baby just a month earlier. We both figured it would take some time and were just hoping I would be pregnant by the end of 2018. Fortunately for us, there was no waiting involved and a short month later (May 12, 2018), I was showing Michael multiple positive pregnancy tests!

I hope to touch more on my pregnancy journey in future posts, but for now, I'll tell you it wasn't all rainbows and butterflies like I was thinking it would be. I always thought since I was active and healthy that pregnancy would be no problem for me. Boy was I wrong. Morning sickness...sciatica... costochondritis...swelling...I experienced it all. I even managed a month long battle with bronchitis at one point. As much as I wanted to love my pregnancy journey, that just wasn't the case for me. With that being said, the moment I met my beautiful baby boy, I immediately forgot about all the struggles that pregnancy brought. It was the most amazing experience of my life.

Okay, that's enough for now. But before I George! He was born on January 18th, 2019 at 1:43 a.m. and weighed eight pounds and two ounces. He was twenty inches of pure perfection.

Happy Mother's Day to all you amazing mommas out there!
