I love being pregnant! I feel like I’ve said this so many times, but it’s true. The first trimester is hard, especially this third time around, but in general I love the whole experience.
I love watching my bump grow, feeling the baby move, knowing that I have the incredible joy of carrying a child, and waiting in eager anticipation to meet him or her on delivery day.
And I mean it when I say that I don’t take it for granted that this pregnancy, and my other two, have been easy and healthy. What a gift! I know too many women who struggle to get pregnant, stay pregnant, or have experienced tragedy after the baby is born. It’s unimaginable.
I’m so grateful for this season, and to get to experience this 3 times. I think 3 is “the number” for Justin and I, so I also had the mindset of savoring this pregnancy even more because I knew it was likely my last. In the spirit of full disclosure, this is just our mindset right now and we certainly aren’t making any permanent decisions about our family yet.
I cannot WAIT to discover if this baby is a boy or a girl. We were surprised with Luke on delivery day and I loved that whole experience, and I’m so glad we did that again for this baby!
I asked Jordan to shoot some family and maternity photos for us this spring, and I love the photos so much. It was a chilly and windy day in March, but I had no doubt that Jordan would be able to capture sweet images of the 4 of us.
Thank you Jordan Maunder for these photos!
