And Then Two Became Three

After waiting for almost two years, God has answered our prayers. Last year after undergoing surgery to remove a two pound (!) fibroid, I had doubts that I'd see those two lines anytime soon. I got cleared from my OB in December of last year and with the mindset of if it happens, I wasn't very optimistic I'd have good news anytime soon. Every month I dreaded during that time of the month because it would just be another disappointment. In the end of January and beginning of February, I was getting very sensitive to every noise and smell. I didn't think much of it, but my nausea started getting worse in March and the week before my birthday I went and bought pregnancy tests. I was shocked when I saw the two lines, as hopeful I was I didn't expect to be pregnant. I had taken pregnancy test strips a week prior and they were all negative so I thought I was just getting ahead of myself. 

Fast forward to today and I'm already 8 months! This pregnancy has been so tough, but I'm reminded of the times when all I wanted was to be a mom. I think there's only been two weeks during my pregnancy where I haven't felt nauseated or had a pregnancy symptom, but I know when I see him it'll all be worth it. It's been a roller coaster of emotions from the moment I heard the baby's heartbeat and saw him in the ultrasound. It's an unexplainable feeling where my heart feels like it's going to burst, just filled with love and happiness. Just a month left until we meet you, our baby boy! 

Our nursery is slowly coming together and we'll hopefully have it done in a couple of weeks. I can't wait! Here are some of my picks for baby stuff we put on our registry and nursery.
