For those who haven't seen me lately, I'm looking a little different these days. And no, it isn't because I ate 5 cupcakes in one day! Baby Burch #2 is on its way, expected arrival November 2nd. But, with my history, could be more like Thanksgiving (haha).
I feel great, albeit tired. We had our 12 week check up this morning with all good news. The heart rate was moving right along at 160 bpm.
Charlotte will be 22 months when the baby is born. She is so gentle with babies and puppies, I can't wait to see what a great big sister she will be. Brian and I are putting it out there that we completely believe this is a boy. So much so that Brian always forgets and tells Charlotte about her "little brother." We won't really know the sex of the baby until the ultrasound in 2 months.
Another exciting factor is that I share this pregnancy with so many friends and family! Brian's cousin's wife Ally, my cousins Lacey and Matt's wife Majda, friends Montelle Curtis, Jessie Hessler, Angie Derby, Julie Hoving, Katie Yates and two neighbors on my block. At least four of these gals are due within the same week as us, Ally is due the same day. (There is another Junior League friend who I'm not naming because I don't think she's "gone public" yet.) This baby will have all of the playmates it ever needs!
Please keep us in your prayers that the pregnancy continues to go this well. We can't wait for another blessing to join our family.
