Catching Up...April! Our BIG News!

April was an exciting time at the Dowdy household!

We found out that we were expecting again!!!!!  Addison was so excited that she was going to be a Big Sister :)

I took a pregnancy test on April 16 and honestly I really didn't think I was pregnant.  But much to my surprise it was a big fat positive.  I had even made a bet with my hubby that if I was actually pregnant that he would get to name this one (which I'm now seriously regretting).  We had started trying on our vacation in March but we weren't planning out days like we did with Addison.  

I totally had symptoms leading up to the positive pregnancy test but like most women I thought maybe I was just making it up in my own head.  My boobs were sore the week before, I had some very light spotting and I had a yeast infection (sorry TMI) which I haven't had in like 5 years.  

We were super excited but kept the great news to ourselves throughout all of April and part of May.  I had a Doctor's appointment on April 30 to confirm the pregnancy and everything was great!  We are due with Baby #2 on December 24 (but crossing our fingers for an early appearance).  

We told Addison after the Doctor's appointment!  We surprised her with a Big Sister shirt and told her that mommy had a baby in her tummy.  As you can see by her smile...she was ecstatic!  

So...this is another big reason why I haven't been blogging.  I have been TIRED...and night time is when I typically have time to write.  But instead of writing I was in bed as soon as Addison was in bed.  My energy is finally coming back (I'm 21 weeks now) so I'm going to try and catch up a little bit at a time.
