It has been over a year since I have posted. Before that, I said time and time again, that I would make more of an effort to post more. I truly intended too!
I really do have a wonderful reason!
After a couple miscarriages, some struggles, and a round of clomid, I got pregnant with our rainbow baby!!!
In the beginning, I told my best friend that I couldn't wait for morning sickness. I know God was listening because he graced me with morning sickness alright.... for the ENTIRE pregnancy. I was sick all the time. I threw up every. single. morning. And randomly throughout the day!
The fear of miscarrying never truly left me and I was pretty fearful to even start on a nursery or pick a name until well in to the second trimester. But everything went well and my love is now playing at my feet as I type this. #BLESSED !!!!
I always thought I wouldnt do a gender reveal but after all of our troubles I wanted to celebrate EVERYTHING so I will start with photos of my gender reveal....
Here we go!!!
The theme was Ice Cream Social ("What's The Scoop with Baby Obetts")...
Ironic considering I couldnt eat ice cream because it made me sick (insert cry emoji here)
It was July 24, 2016 and about a billion degrees outside.
I loved our voting system. If you thought I was having a girl, you added a pink scoop of ice cream and if you thought I was having a boy you add a blue scoop. People that couldnt come to the party called in their vote,
We didn't find out the gender at my appointment, I wanted to find out with everyone else. I think its more fun that way. Our party was 3 days after my appointment. LONGEST 3 DAYS EVER!
I had ordered confetti canons online, two that shot out pink, and two that shot out blue.. They were both the same on the outside except for a tiny code. I asked my friend Amanda to be the one to look in the envelope and get the canons ready for us.
After having a couple miscarriages, I honestly didnt care what we were having. I would have been happy no matter what color shot from those canons.
I didnt care if it was pink or blue. BUT I thought it would be pink... I was so shocked to see blue!!!
When I saw the blue a flood of emotions came over over me.
I was finally able to be excited and picture the future. I was able to let go of (some) of the fear and anxiety I had over miscarrying and celebrate the fact that I was now going to have a precious little baby. I cant even really put in to words everything I was feeling.
I could cry right now just remembering how it felt.
Let me know in the comments below if you have ever had a gender reveal and how you celebrated! Were you as surprised as I was?
In my next post I will post my maternity pictures, taken by my sister Miranda. She did great!
