Baby #4: Pregnancy Update!

Today Spencer and I went to the doctor to hear the heartbeat of our 4th baby! It feels like the perfect time to start my blogging back up. When I had Gretta I documented everything and I absolutely love looking back at all of it. So I’m going to try to do that again! I’m 17 weeks right now and that means I’m almost halfway through this pregnancy already. I am tearing up writing that because I know this is probably my last pregnancy and it is sort of bittersweet. I am actually one of those people who don’t necessarily love being pregnant. I’m a lot more cranky and less patient with my kids when I’m pregnant. And I’m a LOT more tired. This time around I haven’t thrown up at all but for the first trimester I was always a little nauseous. Now that I’m in my 2nd trimester I’m feeling better with energy levels and not nauseous but my digestion is always messed up. I know my tummy isn’t digesting my food fast at all. But it’s really not anything to complain about.

For real, as I sat in the doctor office today I realized how blessed I am for the perfect health of all of my pregnancies and all of my children so far. It’s actually unreal how good God has been to my family. I don’t know how to express how thankful I am for the chance to carry and deliver perfectly healthy babies. And how they’ve grown up to be strong little kids ready to take on this world. 

I’m super excited for this new year. 2019 is going to be real good! Hoping to share more in this space and bring some exciting things to life that have to do with my love of photography. Being able to have a creative space to share and put things out there because it brings me joy! Here we go! 

Waiting to meet the doctor. It was a 2.5 hour appointment :/
