Crazy to look back on my life, when my own life became a life with M, it was just us and that is all we needed. You just don't realize how much love can grow on a daily basis for someone. Even through years of struggling with infertility, M was my rock, we needed each other through the hardest times in our life. Our love grew like crazy during those years, instead of drifting apart.
When our prayers were answered and our life as 2 became 3, I can remember thinking each and every day of my first pregnancy that this day was a blessing. I had quit my job, ended up pregnant and life was just really starting to look up for us. Our first pregnancy ended up quite complicated by the end, but we had the most beautiful baby boy by the end of it. We couldn't ask for more at that point. Staying at home, raising our son couldn't have been any better. I was on cloud 9, a tired cloud 9, but my dreams were coming true. I was a mom, the one thing I wanted so badly and had dreamt of as a little girl. The thing that I was warned I may not actually get to do. Something, I will never take foregranted.
We had talked about growing our family and knowing how long it took to conceive Noah, we decided we would try when I finished breastfeeding, which was around 10 months with Noah. We tried on our own with no success, so we headed back to the fertility clinic and put back on meds. We tried for over 6 months and ended up getting pregnant on the off month of medication. A surprise to us, a miracle in true form.
Do I miss my job? Sure, but my new job is even better. The days are long and hard, but raising my babies, teaching them, moulding them, is the most fulfilling position at the end of the day.
Today is the day we welcome this sweet baby into our lives and we couldn't be more excited!! Will it be a boy or a girl? Will it look like Noah? Soo many questions, all to be answered tomorrow, just like our prayer for a healthy pregnancy and baby!!
Stay tuned! Instagram will be updated, and I will try to get a push up soon informing you all!!!
