Story of Baby H

26 Weeks and Counting!

26 Weeks and Counting!

It’s almost time now for the birth of our first son. Words cannot describe the emotions that my husband and I have had over the past 7 months preparing for his arrival. We are extremely fortunate in that what we thought would take years to happen only took a few months and we were both unbelievably surprised when we found out we were expecting. 

Our little bundle of joy has been very active lately and barely sleeps in the womb. It seems like every time I speak he moves just to remind me that he’s still there. Having our first baby has definitely made my husband and I think more about our future. We are now more focused on what we need to do to prepare for Baby H’s arrival. Number one for us was finding a house that we can grow in. We have been looking, and looking and…….looking, yet we just can’t seem to find the perfect one for us and our growing family. I have been learning lots about house buying and how to not let your heart fully guide the decision. Hopefully we will find one before our little guy arrives.

Pregnancy has not been the best feeling in the world. I had a large amount of morning sickness (which didn’t just happen in the morning). As soon as my morning sickness was over I got the flu for a week. Needless to say gaining weight was a struggle for me. Over the past few weeks I have finally started to gain weight in a healthy way and am feeling more comfortable being pregnant. Don’t get me wrong I still struggle with back pain, insomnia, and irritability but not being nauseous all the time and being able to keep food down definitely makes this whole experience better. 

The most amazing thing about being pregnant is being able to feel the baby moving around inside of you. I feel bad that my husband can’t feel it the way I can but even seeing his face when he touches my stomach and feels him kick or when he moves to the other side of my body is priceless. I will miss this feeling the most when he is finally delivered but being able to hold him every day is way better!!!

Currently Kyle and I are just enjoying this stage in the pregnancy and relaxing. As eager as we are for him to arrive we are embracing every last moment we have alone together. We will be taking a baby moon to New York next week so stay tuned for more on that and on Baby H and his arrival.

17 Weeks!
