Thoughts On This Baby


Thank you for all of you nice comments when I announced my pregnancy last week!

It’s already been a week since I announced it.  Although I feel like time is dragging by.

Tomorrow I’ll be 7 weeks pregnant.  I still can’t believe I’m pregnant you guys. haha!  We weren’t planning on having anymore children.  But, I’ll tell you what… this was the best surprise I’ve received in a long time!  My doctor took me off birth control to try and even out my hormones.  I told her I was probably going to end up getting pregnant… and ta da!  5 weeks after I make that comment I’m seeing positive pregnancy tests.  hahaha!

I hope I enjoy this pregnancy.  I tend to be a very bad pregnant person.  I don’t dress cute ever.  I’m usually really uncomfortable and impatient.  But I’m hoping this time around will be different.  I’m eating so much better and have a different outlook.  I’m older and wiser.  ;)  I want to enjoy it.  But I am so excited to find out what we’re having!  Maybe if time could speed up to mid August that’d be great.  ;)

I do have to admit.  I’m more paranoid with this pregnancy.  I’ve got everyone I know praying hard that this little baby stays safe in my belly.  I feel like once I hit 12 weeks I can breath easier.  But that’s not what has me extremely fearful and paranoid.  As you likely know, Zoe was born 10 weeks premature.  I have a 25% chance of having a preemie this go round.  Having Zoe when I was only 30 weeks pregnant was terrifying and a long journey.  I’d really rather not go through that again with this one.  I’d love your prayers!!

I took this picture Sunday… I’m already showing a little bit!  Or a lot!  Jeez!  I’m about 7 weeks!

So far I’m feeling pretty good.  Extreme fatigue is my biggest symptom.  It’s a weird feeling, because it’s almost like I’m taking a sleeping pill.  One minute I’m fine and the next I can barely keep my eyes open.  It’s so weird!  I do have waves of slight nausea but so far, it’s been very minor.  Even more minor than with my previous 2.  We’ll see if that lasts.  ;)  I probably won’t be posting a ton of pictures of my pregnant self, but who knows… maybe I’ll change my mind.  :)


Talk soon, friends!  Hope you’re all doing awesome!!


  1. I think you are gorgeous and should definitly photograph your growin belly. :) I’m so excited for you!

  2. Having lived 3 mo in the NICU myself, I understand the fear. But only 1 in 12 babies are preemies. That means 11 in 12 are not!

    Wishing you a long, healthy pregnancy. :)

  3. Lots of sticky baby thoughts for you hun. When I was pregnant with my third I felt like a walking zombie for the first 3-4 months. I had lost all appetite & I too felt like I had taken a sleeping pill. I lived on the couch those months & barely remember anything but sleeping. It was so weird but once I got into the mid second trimester & was back to feeling normal. Hopefully your sleepiness wears off sooner!

  4. Congratulations, Shea! I showed super early with my third as well. I think the tummy muscles were just like “whatever, I’m taking a nap.” ;)

  5. I understand the worry. My first two were preemies. Alice’s pregnancy was definitely not without complications and scares, but she came out full term, so it’s completely possible to have a full term baby after preemies. (I know you know this, just reiterating!).

  6. Congratulations on your pregnancy, it’s great now that your eating so healthy, this will be so good for you and the baby. Enjoy pregnancy, it’s such a precious miracle.

  7. Sending happy baby prayers your way
