Special Delivery Coming our Way

We are having a baby!  Weston and I found out on January 21st.  I actually decided to run to the store at 11:36pm before it closed and I took the test right before midnight on that night.  And of course after seeing it was positive, I had to get Weston out of bed to tell him!  The second line was really light in color but it was still there!

     As much as I wanted to shout it out to the world (if you can't tell I like to share everything, hehehe) we decided to wait because we experienced a miscarriage in 2012.  I told some friends and family (people who I would be happy to have as support if it ended as a miscarriage again) but decided to wait on the world.    

Here's my baby at 6 and a halfish weeks! We got to see the little heart beating and everything.  I also got to hear the heartbeat again last Wednesday! It was super exciting!
I can't believe how big I am this time!  In the pink shirt I am at 14 weeks with Sage and in the yellow shirt is me at 14 weeks with this baby.  Quite the difference, is this seriously normal like everyone says or am I just packing it on more than I should??

   So this time is a little different than last time (every time I say that everyone says it is going to be a boy but I wouldn't jump on a conclusion too fast). The differences I have noticed (or doing differently I guess) are:
* I am so weepy!  I cry a lot more than I did last time.  I cried the other day when someone moved something out of the way for me so I could get through.  It was oh so kind of him.  I am just such an emotional person!  
* Last time I felt a constant luring nausea follow me throughout the day but I never threw up.  This time I have also never threw up but I have felt like I was going to a few times after eating.  I also haven't had the luring nausea all the time, just sometimes. 
*Last time all I could do was think about how I was pregnant and I talked about it non-stop.  This time I rarely think about it.  Weston is amazed at how little I even mention the subject. 
*I am feeling the baby move inside me already!!! It is such a neat feeling.  
*Also this time I am seeing a Midwife and I am loving her so much more than my past Doctors!  She takes so much time with me and guides me in nutritional directions.  If all goes well I plan to have this baby in the comfort of my home. :)

My due date is sometime in the first week of October and I am a little over 15 weeks a long.  We are so excited!

  1. Yay! I'm so excited for you! I have been wondering.... ;) Different symptoms don't necessarily mean different gender. Take it from one who had 4 girls in a row! :) <3

  2. How exciting!!!!!!!!! Seriously, I am so happy for you :). Claire felt different from jack and this one felt different from both so you totally get unique pregnancies, we're having another girl BTW. I guess that means you are getting a new and different child and not a clone? Anyways, I'm so excited for you guys :))

  3. Congratulations Becky! I am so happy for you.

  4. Yep, totally normal to be bigger quicker after your first.

  5. Best Wishes and Prayers. Congrats and give sage extra for a little while and include her as much as possible. Get some good exercise and rest. Eat well. Tell Weston I said take care. Love Grandpop

  6. Thank you for sharing your comments, we are so excited!

  7. Congrats and yes, every pregnancy is different!
