We are excited to announce that we are expecting baby bean #2 on March 8th 2016! Vincent will get a sibling for his 2nd birthday. :D
I wanted to wait to take the test until July 5th, because that was the day I got a positive with Vincent, back in 2013. But I could wait! So I took a test as soon as I fed Vince breakfast on the 4th of July. I was so excited when that second line popped up! Just like last time, it showed up almost immediately. I took a second test for good measure, which was also positive!
This time around, I wanted to announce to Mike in a fun way, instead of calling him on the phone, like I did last time around. So Vincent, my mom and I ventured to Target and bought Vince a "No. 1 Big Bro" shirt, along with my prenatal vitamins! With Mike's permission, here is the video of the announcement!
My first appointment is set for August 11th and I will be 10 weeks along at that point. (Although by the time I publish this post, I will have already been to the doctor! Hehe) This time around, we are doing things a little differently. If we were still living in Farmington, I would be going back to the midwives, no questions asked. I couldn't have asked for better prenatal care or a better birth experience at the hospital! Here, there is only one midwifery and they only do unmedicated births, either at home or at the birthing center. They also don't do sonograms unless medically necessary. Since I'd like the option of both that and an epidural, we decided to see an OB-GYN this time around. I read some very fantastic reviews about her and heard from many moms that she was supportive of birth plans, so I figured we'd give her a shot! I'm a little anxious and nervous about the switch, but I am sure it will be fine! I hope with all my heart that it will be a good experience. :)
Although it won't be as easy this time around, since I've got my hands full with a spunky toddler, I look forward to doing weekly bump updates again! I will do the best I possibly can to keep up with them. :) Here are the bump updates up until our announcement:
