We are pregnant!!!
Here’s how we…
… MADE IT OFFICIAL
It’s a complicated thing to navigate pregnancy after loss, a tricky time to announce a pregnancy and a hard time to be pregnant. But in all situations, even the worst, there is always #HOPE — and we hope our family news brightens your day.
Swipe to see #babylettuce casually photobomb these pics, after refusing to be in any, until the very last shot in which he pulled over and climbed onto a chair only to try to pull the heart off my sign. 🐒
Not exactly the announcement backdrop or scenario I envisioned but here we are doing our best!
… TOLD OUR FRIENDS
We don’t have the budget right now to give him a raise but effective Summer 2020 he’s getting a title change.
… TOLD OUR PARENTS
Ssshh!!!! Someone’s got a SECRET valentine!
… TOLD NICO
After two back to back miscarriages leading right into this pregnancy, I waited until I had a dark pink line. Only two days after I first saw the initial light pink positive. I wrote him a note and taped the pregnancy sticks onto a printout of a card I could not find in-store or online.
Later when he held up the “card” for a photo for us to document the moment, the camera instead focused on his arm tattoo. Amore vole fe. Love needs faith.
… UPDATED THE ORIGINAL
When we made it official with our first pregnancy (#babylettuce), we used the first three slides (below). For this pregnancy (#littlelettuce), we added a fourth!
I hope this post brings a little light into the darkness we are all currently experiencing.
Please stay safe and well!
