Last Thanksgiving, I was still a few weeks away from announcing my pregnancy and about 7 months away from actually believing I was having a baby. It’s not a huge secret that we struggled for quite a few years to have a baby, so we kind of spent my entire pregnancy in disbelief. At first I told myself it would feel real if we made it to 12 weeks this time. Then we made it, and I still couldn’t believe it so I figured things would start feeling different at the gender ultrasound. When we found out we were having a girl it was a whole other state of disbelief (What?! I’m still pregnant AND it’s a girl . . . this can’t be happening!) This pretty much continued until Friday, May 15th at 3:30am when my water broke three weeks early . . . and things got real quite quickly!
Fast forward to this Thanksgiving, and I’m up at 6:00am to pump milk for my baby girl as I watch her snooze on the baby monitor. To say we have a little more to be thankful for this year would be an understatement! At first, I started going through and collecting pictures for this post of everyone who has been part of Lucy’s life . . . but there are SO MANY and I need to finish this before that sweet baby girl wakes up! So THANK YOU to everyone . . . we love you all!
