I’m so excited to share we’re expecting baby #5! We’ve talked about it off and on over the past two years because I’ve always dreamed of having a large family. We’re beyond excited and grateful for this new addition in early 2020!
I’m still early in my pregnancy, just coming to the end of my first trimester. It’s hard to know when is the best time to share this news, but it’s hard to hide when morning sickness controls everything we do and eat. Right now amidst morning sickness and an almost daily need for a hamburger, I just laugh at how things change. I spent all spring not eating meat, and now that’s all I want. We have to be able to roll with changes in life and be stable and grounded in matters of the soul and not let ourselves be defined by a lifestyle or a diet or any particular area of life. Because everything changes.
We’re slowly adjusting to what it will be like with another kid in the house. The first trimester has already forced us to slow down and readjust some of our schedule, cutting back on a lot of things. Overall, I’m still feeling exhausted and foggy. I’m looking forward to the second trimester in a couple weeks and hoping it brings energy and motivation! Since this is my fifth pregnancy, and I always have bad morning sickness, I’m planning on writing out some of the tips I’ve gathered over the years. Using all the little tips together has helped me go an entire first trimester with minimal throwing up! With every pregnancy I wonder if it will be my last, so I’m trying to enjoy every moment of this one, and I’m looking forward to sharing more as I go through this pregnancy over the next few months!
