This pregnancy has been so different from my first. I’ve had no complications – no extra medications, no bleeding, no bed rest. Because of that, and because I spend my days chasing a one-year-old, this pregnancy has gotten less mental focus from me. I haven’t been reading weekly updates on the baby. I haven’t been taking pictures of my growing tummy (though that’s partly due to the fact that Brandt broke the mirror I used for those pictures). Certainly, I’m thanking God for this baby, anticipating having a newborn again, wondering what this little one’s personality will be like. But the pregnancy experience is definitely different this time.
There’s one other difference that might interest you.
This baby is a girl!
Want to see pictures we got of her this morning? Of course you do! I think she really resembles her big brother.
We already have two potential girl names picked out, though we’re keeping them secret for now. There’s got to be some surprise when the baby’s born, after all! But, for fun, what are your favorite girls’ names?
