I have something to share.
Lookit what Matt and I have been working on! Kind of explains my recent absence, huh?
We have been trying since just before the beginning of this year to expand our family, and we finally got our positive on 13 August!
We hadn’t told anyone but family (and awesome attorney-boss because, shoot, if I was ever sick at work…!), and we told them around 6.5 weeks with a video, as they’re long-distance. They loved it!!
I started bleeding, so I panicked and called up our birth center, who had us come in for an emergency blood draw and ultrasound. We went, I got blood drawn for hCG levels, then off to the hospital it was for the ultrasound.
When the heartbeat came back as 139bpm and a very healthy baby bopping around in there, we cried. Totally broke down. Our little Kit was okay.
Scariest moment of my life, though! And to think, all those feelings attached to something that barely measured over a centimeter.
Y’all have no idea how much I wanted to tell you. Now I’m so happy that I can share!
The purpose of this blog, partially as a result of this, is going to shift from food, faith, and family to strictly faith and family. Part of this decision is based on my apparent need to update my Recipes tab, and most is based on this little life growing right now.
I’m looking forward to sharing our journey to becoming a coexisting family (and a new addition to boot!) with you.
