Baby Tree #2

In case you don't follow me on Instagram, Twitter, or FB (which is probably no one) we have big news....


Eli is going to be a big brother!!! We are so excited to welcome baby tree #2 to the family and watch Eli become a big brother!

I am due April 7th, which means I am 10 weeks. 

This pregnancy has been extremely different from my pregnancy with Eli (so far). With Eli I never felt pregnant and breezed through the first trimester. I *thought* I had feelings of sickness with Eli but nothing big.

Whoa. I did not know what pregnancy sickness was. I now do. 

I have been nauseous 24/7 with occasional sickness. Some women have it so much worse so I've tried not to complain too much (I'm sure Luke just laughed out loud while reading that) but man I'm ready for food to taste good again! 

Eli has been so good. There have been a couple of days where we haven't left the house because I feel so bad, but he just rolls with the punches and is always right by me, whether I'm sick or not.  One day while playing with friends I watched Eli mock throwing up to his friends. That was a wonderful experience. 

I've always heard that with the second baby you show a lot sooner and that seems to be true. Even though I've been sick and haven't been eating as much I have still managed to gain weight. 

I think I'm one of those people that just gains weight really easily while pregnant. At least that's what I'll tell the doctor. 

I'm only 10 weeks and I already have belly. 


I'm not saying it's huge or anything, I'm just shocked that it's already forming. 

I will be doing pregnancy updates again. Luke has already tried to get out of taking my picture, sorry buddy. I still love going back and looking at my updates with Eli and reading them. I know I will want to do the same with this baby. 

So that's our big news!! It's always hard keeping such a big secret!

Thank you so much for all the congrats and excitement! It's so fun to have others join in our big excitement!

We are so thankful for this new baby and this new journey for our family!

  4. Ahh - what a cute baby bump already... so exciting!

    Hope the morning sickness isn't horrid. My step daughter is pregnant right now with her 3rd & can't eat a thing with the nausea... that's not fun. Pregnancy is when you have a good excuse to eat eat eat :)

    Congrats again to you all!

  8. What great news, congratulations!
    My daughter is expecting her first on the 1st of April. She had all day sickness but it ended in her
    8th week. She's tiny like you and has already grown a good size belly. The next few months will be interesting!

  11. That's SO EXCITING! My 2nd pregnancy was totally different, too. Right from the start. I ended up having a girl the 2nd time around ;) I was NEVER sick with my son, but with my daughter I had EVENING SICKNESS.. I lived on plain strawberry pop tarts and unisom to help me sleep (which also helped with the sickness!)

    I hope you start to feel better soon! Praying you have a happy and healthy pregnancy! :)

  14. Congrats! I'm not far ahead of you with our 2nd baby! I am finally out of the 1st trimester though and things definitely got better with the morning sickness. Your bump is so cute! I felt like as soon as I announced I was pregnant, my belly popped! :)

  17. Awesome! Congrats! I'm pregnant with our 2nd as well & due March 12th! I was wondering if your lack of posts was baby related...I've been struggling with my blog b/c I've been really sick and have baby on the brain. Congrats again!

  23. I've never commented on your blog before (I don' think) but have read since right around when you had Eli. I randomly was wondering the other day when you would be pregnant again because Eli is getting older and I just figured it would be soon. Kind of embarrassing to admit I was thinking about you in my spare time, haha. But congrats!
