A New Pumpkin For Our Patch...


Coming May, 2019.

I am still in shock and awe each time I see this little person (which thanks to a little hematoma concern + a bit of spastic anxiety on my part has been quite a bit). It has been so beautiful to get to watch this little one grow.
The hematoma is shrinking, thanks be to God! And not causing any problems so we'll tone it down on the ultrasound front from here on out.

This pregnancy has felt almost like being pregnant for the first time particularly in my new found love of every. Single. Pregnancy. Symptom. They all give me peace of mind that this little nugget is growing and I am nothing but thankful for that. Especially nausea, give me all the nausea. So weird.


I chose the plumpest pumpkin for myself because: TRUTH. I've primarily been craving potato chips and store bought muffins whose tops have got nothing on mine now. But! This is my first experience with a doctor who doesn't give me a super hard time for my excessive first trimester weight gain (yet), so win! 

Thank you all for your many prayers and words of encouragement over this year, they have been a true blessing to me during a time that was so unexpectedly hard.

God is so generous and I am completely humbled and honored I am to be carrying this person, for however long I am blessed to.

  12. Congrats Ana! When is your due date? I am due May 6th, very unexpected, as we believed it wouldn't happen again but so very welcome. I totally get the pregnancy anxiety, I've only had one ultrasound but yesterday heard a heartbeat and starting to get hopeful. I have a growing list of pregnancy intentions and will add you to it. God is so good to us!
