Hey guys, today I am finally able to share our exciting news with you! And as you’ll see in the picture below we are so excited to announce that we will be a family of 4 in September!
This baby has been growing in me for 4 months (17 weeks in a few days) and we can’t believe how lucky we are to be able to add another member to our family. We started “trying” in July or August and found out we were pregnant in mid January. We felt like that was a long time, but know that isn’t really that long compared to a lot of people.
All I know is I can’t wait to find out this baby’s gender in a few weeks so we can start officially planning! I don’t care what gender our new baby is as long as he or she is healthy, but part of me is secretly hoping for another boy because I already know how to care for a baby boy. I know that sounds silly, but I’m actually terrified by the idea of raising a daughter in this world. I mean, I’m terrified of raising a son here and now too, but a daughter seems a heck of a lot scarier for some reason!
We are so excited and so in love with our new little Witzke on the way, but I still have my worries. I know people typically feel more confident about everything during the second pregnancy, but I think I’m just as scared and feel just as unprepared this time as I was with Wolfgang.
We can’t believe how our love has already grown, our hearts enlarged. I am excited to decorate the new baby’s room, to see W. become a big brother, and to see W. to teach the new baby everything he knows.
As a side note: you know those girls who love being pregnant, can I just ask WHY? I mean, the end result (a baby) is worth all of it, but I certainly don’t love pregnancy! When you’re pregnant you are constantly tired, get sick easier, have morning sickness, think less rationally than usual, have hormone issues, weird food cravings, your back hurts, and are generally just large and intrusive… And don’t get me started on people saying you “glow.” We all know that’s just because we’re sweaty and red in the face, right? lol I am happy for you if you’re one of those people who enjoys being preggers, but if you could please comment below and explain to me what you like about pregnancy I would be grateful. Because I 100% don’t understand it.
