My infertility story is on here, but I think all of the time how much I would have HATED being pregnant with Cruz if I didn't have such a struggle getting pregnant in the first place. I waited and went through all of the drugs and tests and infertility process (which is a LONG one) - and when I finally had two pink lines on that test, I don't think I'd ever been happier. Even when I was puking my guts up for the fourth or fifth time in a day, I would be so grateful because I knew that my baby was growing and alive. I think I complained maybe twice to Ammon, but I was so happy to be pregnant and feel him move and know that I was FINALLY going to be a mom!
With baby number 2 we figured it would take us a while to get pregnant again - so when we started trying it truly was a miracle that we got pregnant immediately - like that shouldn't be able to happen!! And Cruz is the best baby ever, I feel a little tired, but this baby was truly a gift from God because it's been a cake walk compared to Cruz ;)
We find out the gender at my next appointment!! It's so exciting!! My blood pressure is already a problem, and I have to start the same medication they had me on with Cruz pretty soon - which scares me!! It's made to slow down your heart and not make it pump so hard, so it makes me exhausted and light headed and sluggish. But, Cruz is so laid back and easy I'm sure it will be okay.
I still have a few ideas for Cruz's one year old pictures that I haven't done - but they are going to be so cute!! I mean, really... look at this face!! He was made to model for his photographer mom, for sure!!
|I'm not the biggest fan of hats, but in the store Cruz was obsessed with it!! He would take it off, the put it on and smile so huge - like he was sooo cool ;) So I had to get it for him!!|
His birthday party was so much fun, too!! This little boy loves a good party :) It made all the planning and work worth it!
Other than Cruz's birthday and my doctors visits, life is pretty boring and normal!! We're super excited to see if Cruz is getting a little brother or sister :)
