Life can change faster than you think is possible. It’s hard to believe that three years to the day after my husband Drew and I met in Santa Monica, we’ll be expecting a wonderful son to join our family. Our pregnancy journey has certainly had its ups and downs. When my husband and I first started trying, I got pregnant really quickly. I knew how common miscarriage was, but I didn’t think I would have any problems. Within in the first 10 weeks of that pregnancy we had a miscarriage. Words cannot describe how shocking and awful it was. A month later, I felt ready to start trying again and once again, I got pregnant right away. Ten weeks later almost the same thing happened. Even though I knew this can happens to so many women, I felt like something was wrong with me and we decided to take a break from trying.
After a 4 month break we got pregnant again. This time felt different. Its amazing how mothers can be so intuitive. The only up and down we’re focused on now is the ever growing (and kicking!) bump inside me. We are both scared (me of labor, Drew of diapers) and thrilled to become new loving parents, and we can’t wait to help our son grow up into a great man. We can’t wait to see him walk, hear him talk, watch him get into trouble with his “fur sister” Sierra the husky, and then have him realize how so very dearly his parents love him and will appreciate every moment with him. But we’ll have to wait, a little less than two more months, for our family to grow and this parenting adventure to begin.
