Big Sister

IMG_3383I’m quite convinced that everyone has heard the news … Bella is going to be a big sister!! 

Baby Jennings #2 is due to arrive January 7th … which makes me 11 weeks today … and we are already anxiously awaiting his/her arrival!

So here’s the real question … do I change this blog to a family blog or keep it Princess Bella’s Diary?

Either way… I will update with news and excitement about the baby. Here’s our latest sonogram (at 9 weeks 5 days).

Baby 2 June 9

This sonogram was unexpected so Tyler wasn’t with me … however it was one of the most special moments I’ve ever experienced. I’ve been a bit nervous, yet optimistic, about this pregnancy and to see our baby was just breathtaking.  We saw the baby’s spine, brain (right & left side), little arm and leg buds and the heart was beating away! He/she must have known we were watching because the baby started wiggling and dancing and I’m convinced he/she waved “hello” to me.

We simply couldn’t be happier! The thought of adding more love and joy into our home is beyond words.

Luckily I’ve started feeling better … the last 8 weeks or so haven’t been my brightest.  Lots of nausea, dizziness, heart burn, not sleeping, food aversions, food cravings!, being super tired, ridiculously hot and lately low blood pressure.  Don’t get me wrong – this isn’t me complaining! I’m thrilled to experience the effects of pregnancy and am happy to have an excuse to nap when Bella does & eat chocolate Hostess donuts, red Starbursts and guacamole to satisfy a craving.

We find out September 2nd if it’s a BOY or GIRL so start placing your bets!
