Could It Be? My Pregnancy Test Result!

To be or not to be….PREGNANT?!

My husband, our son and I decided to take a pregnancy test this past weekend! Watch the video to see our results!

A part of me still cannot believe this is happening. I was SO nervous to even take the test. We haven’t tried not to get pregnant, but we haven’t tried for it either. So it was definitely nerve wrecking to go through the whole testing period, even though it was 2 minutes long. Felt like the longest 2 minutes ever. Part of me felt like there is NO way I am, because I just didn’t feel pregnant. And the other part of me that felt like I could very well be pregnant since I had just gotten my period last month, so I knew I had started ovulating.

My husband has been wanting this the entire time. He loves children, and this would be his 5th. I love them as well, so it’s a great feeling to be surrounded by love and know that everyone around you wants this just as much, if not more 🙂 The last few months we have been teasing the kiddos about me possibly having another baby soon, and as much as they always joked and said NOOOOO, when I would tell them I wasn’t pregnant, they had this sad look on them. So we knew that deep down they would very much love another baby around the house.

I have obviously thought about having another one since Gio was born. But I didn’t want it to be right after Gio, because I wanted to give my son everything that I possibly could. By that I mean all of my love, attention, care, time, and dedication. I didn’t want to be pregnant so soon because if I had a pregnancy like my last one, it would mean I would be extremely sick for the first 4 months. Of course, it could very well be completely different second time around. But because I know what it was like to have such bad morning sickness, the thought of going through that with a tiny baby around scared me. I didn’t think it would be fair to my son. George is my world and the thought of not fully partaking in every single milestone, or even daily activity of his just saddens me. So as I sit here and type this I am tearing up. A part of me is soooo happy and soooo excited that a tiny little angel is growing inside of me. But the other part of me makes me cling on to Gio that much more. I keep telling him “I love him” like a little kid who just learned how to say it for the first time. I just want to make sure he understands and knows that I am here, and I will always be here, and he will always be my world no matter what sibling or siblings are coming our way.

I have talked to some of my friends who have more than just one kid and I always ask them if they favorite one more than the other. Of course they always say “No” lol. But i feel like if they said yes, they would feel guilty. See, a part of me feels like there is NO ONE i could ever love more than my son. Heck, not even me. Is that because he’s my only one? I don’t know. They say this will change the second you hold your next child. I sound like a horrible mother of two already. I already love my second one and he or she or they are only a few weeks old. But part of me feels like George will always be my special baby. Who knows…this whole growing older thing has taught me so much I never imagined before. Maybe I will find out that mothers do love all children the same indeed and they don’t play favorites.

I just can’t believe it! I’m pregnant! As in PREGNANT! I am sooooo soooo excited. I don’t care if I have a boy, girl, twins, triplets, two boys, two girls…anything! I just want a healthy pregnancy with a healthy baby(ies). I’m leaving all of this in God’s hands and praying that he watches over me and my family!

Last pregnancy was a very rough one. I was so stressed out, I was sick, the unknown feared me, I had no experience, I was scared, I was clueless. This time I no longer am those things. I am strong, I am prepared, I know what to expect, I am full of life and love, I am relaxed, and I am completely at peace and ready for this. I am looking forward to an amazing journey, God willing.

Thank you for being a part of this and letting me share our joy with you <3

And don’t feel bad..we have all been there. Your such a beautiful mother now just wait till you have more you’ll be super mom. So congrats again and can’t wait to be apart of your new journey on IG.

    Congrats my kids are 13 months apart and it was actually planned to have them close in age. It was the best decision! My daughter loves her brother so much and after the first month and routine things got much easier. Every pregnancy is different with my daughter I wasn’t sick at all and with my son I was so sick. Good luck Hun it will be fine and don’t feel guilty because once he or she is born you will love him or her the same.

    I have a 2 year old and stuggled for months going back and forth on to have baby #2 or not because I didn’t know how I could ever love someone the way I love him, so I can totally relate! I feel as my first born he will always be number one somehow, but I type this now 5 months pregnant with anther baby boy and I’m attatchig to him better than I thought! I’m thrilled to be giving my first a sibling and overjoyed that it’s another boy since I’ve been down this road before. There are days when I’m a little sad and cling my first tight thinking these are the last days of benign just HIS Mama, but I try to remind myself I’m giving him and sibling and a best friend!! It’s all very exciting and overwhelming! Congratulations and well wishes to you, George, baby & family! I love following you and enjoy your blog!!!!

    Congrats ! I know just how you feel, i have two boys who are 2 years apart. My second pregnancy was a happy surprise but amongst all those good feelings i felt sad….sad because i felt like i wouldnt have that special time with my first anymore. That all sort of went away when baby no.2 was born and I saw them together. Its fills your heart with so much joy to se your 2 babies together. I love both my children equally but theres just something a little more inside when I think of my first born. It may sound mean but im being honest. He was my first! The one who gave me all those wonderdul feelings about being a mom for the first time! No one can replace that

I felt exactly like you when I found out I was pregnant with my second, he is now 2 months old and my oldest is almost 3years old.

    Hi I’m geli.86 on Instagram. I’m a 28 yr old mommy of three, 2 boys and 1 girl. Just wanted to say that I love all my kids the same amount, but I love the each differently.. If that makes since?.. I have a different bond with each of them. But to describe it is impossible. So just know that your new baby will be as loved as your first born but your bond will be different for each one. Idk if that helps but just wanted to let you know. Enjoy your kiddos cause they’re only small once!

    I felt the same way when I was pregnant with my second…I wondered how I could possibly love her as much as I love my son. I think most women feel that. But as soon as she was born I knew that you’re love doesn’t get divided, it just grows bigger! I’m about to have my third and that doesn’t worry me this time because I know I will love her just as much. Congratulations!!! 🙂

    Hi!! I just want you to say that my mom was in the same place you are now 22 years ago… I was the first born child in my family, There is only one year and six months between us. And let me say, she is my best friend, my sister, my soulmate and I couldn’t imagine a day without her!! Occurs that I’m always feeling she is my moms fav and I, my dad’s … But in the end that’s no true!! The real thing is that we both have different personalities that make us interact with our parents in a different way!! My sister is the most beautiful gift my mom could ever gave to me!!

    First off, CONGRATS! So exciting! But I ABSOLUTELY understand what you mean… when I was pregnant the second time around, my brain just couldn’t even imagine loving something more. I was always worried that I was going to love my first way more or favorite her over the 2nd child. The thought of my time with her being shared scared me. I felt like I was going to be a bad mom for not being able to love the next one just as much! BUT…as they say…once #2 is here, it all changes. Honestly, I cried for a few days even after my second daughter was here about it. But I adjusted, and could never imagine loving them any differently 🙂 (they’re 5 & 6 years old now)

    Congratulations! Watching your video brought tears to my eyes. Children are truly a blessing and the fact that The Lord is entrusting us (mothers) with his precious chdren shows how much he loves us and His children. You are a WONDERFUL mother and I follow you on Instagram because it’s nice to see what you love for, your family! Your a dedicated mother and your husband and children are so blessed to have you in there lives. Your a special soul and that’s not hard to see. The main reason why I wanted to comment was I wanted to tell you that no you don’t love one child more than the other 🙂 I have 4 children and just found out I’m having my 5th and I can tell you from experience that you truly love each child just the same. I do agree that my first has a special part of my heart but only because she is my first, and made me the person I am today. I can also say that about my second 🙂 You see, each child will always need your extra love at one time or another and whoever that child is, is the one you’ll be loving more not because you love them more but because they need your love the most at that time. I wish you the best but most of all I wish you and your beautiful family an abundance of blessings.

    I found out I was pregnant when my son was 7 months and I felt the same way as you do now, it’s a normal feeling to feel as if you are going to love your first born more than your other baby/babies. When I would talked about it to other people I felt like they were judging me but they were my true feelings at that time. I’m due on November 6 n my first born was born on July 6 2013 so they be exactly 15 months apart. Those feelings still linger here n there but I know that no matter what my love for my kids is unconditional. Btw I having another boy which is exactly what I wanted so hopefully you get your baby girl this time… [[keeping my fingers crossed]]

    Congratulations! OMG your son is super cute by the way!
    I just had my 1st baby in May and I got my period really soon about a month after. After a month, I didn’t get my period and I told my husband about it, I didn’t know what to feel or how to feel. I couldn’t imagine being pregnant again. He went to the pharmacy right away to get me a pregnancy test and while I waited for the results I was crying my eyes out! My husband asked what was wrong and I told him that I was soo sad! I told him I didn’t feel ready to be pregnant again! My baby was about to turn 3 months and we have all these plans for each step of his development. And like you, I had really REALLY bad morning sickness. I was soo sad! I told him my baby was soo small and he needed me whole, not sick! This is the most important stage in his life and I didn’t want to miss it or not be there for him 100%! Then i thought, when the other baby comes he won’t even be a year old yet! I’m going to sacrifice my child and precious time with him! And to be honest, the thought of going through birthing a child again made things even worst. I was crying inconsolably. I finally had the courage to go check my test and it said I wasn’t pregnant. I composed myself and had a serious talk with my husband. He told me it was okay, he said “if God sends you a child, it’s because he knows you will be able to handle it.” And he told me there was nothing wrong with giving our son a sibling. He told me that those feelings were not good, whether I was pregnant or not. That all children are God’s gifts and they should be cherished. I reflected for a few days on my reaction, my feelings and had more time to process the thought of being pregnant again. A few weeks later I still hadn’t gotten my period so I took 2 more pregnancy tests at the same time, different brands. They both turned out positive. I was scared, I told my husband I was really scared.
    Now my son is 4 months old, going into his 5th and I am almost 2 months pregnant. My morning sickness came back but I am able to cope with it better because I already know what works, and doesn’t work for me. But I feel like because I have my son and he has all this energy, I don’t have the time to stop and think or feel my morning sickness. Mentally, I’m taking it much better. We will be playing and then I get that feeling, I go throw up, clean myself up, and go right back to playing with him. The only difference is that instead of using his sleeping time to clean or get things done, I nap with him. It works out for the both of us. As for my son, we are really glad things turned out this way because now he will have a sibling really close in age! They will be able to grow up together and play together, it will be great! I see him playing by himself and I think to myself, he needs a friend! A friend that will always be there for him and vice versa. Especially when I think about them going to school, I know they will have each other. And that brings peace and joy to my heart. I await my little one with a lot of love and even though my 1st baby holds a very special place in my heart, I know that I will fall in love with my second once I see him/her!

    Sorry to make this soo long but I just wanted to share my story with you, hopefully it makes you feel better. It’s totally normal to feel the way you do or did. But it’s not so bad! I’m only 2 months into my pregnancy so I don’t know how it’ll be like having 2 babies but I know i’ll be okay. You will be okay. You’re a great mother and your baby will LOVE having someone to play with! Congratulations again! Best wishes to you and your family!!

The thought of having another one so soon made me very excited but very sad at the same time. It broke my heart that my baby girl wasn’t going to be my one and only and feared If it was even possible to love another human being as much as I love her! I look forward to seeing your journey so you can help me out when time comes around for a second one! Best of luck in this new journey!! Gio is going to be a great ( and handsome) big brother! Xoxo

Just know you are doing a great job, and that he knows he is loved. And trust me, you will love both!! There is a special place in your heart for your first born, but it’s not that you love them more, it’s just different. You will understand once baby #2 comes. God bless!

    Oh sweetie congrats!! And I know how you feel, I got pregnant exactly 12 months after my first. He had just turned 1 and like you I was happy yet completely devastated. I’m going to be completely honest with you. You will not love your second the way you love your first. You will love him equally but in completely different ways and that is normal. They are different beings 🙂 My first will always hold a special place bc he made me a mom for the first time. But my second is oh so special too, he’s my baby boy. They both tug at my heart but in different ways. I can’t describe the love I have for the two bc it is all consuming but different.

    So cry it out if you must, I did. And I had a hard time accepting being pregnant for all the reasons you listed and didn’t enjoy the first few months bc of it and I regret it. So embrace it and enjoy it 🙂

    Gio will thank you when he’s older. My first is completely in love with his baby brother and vice versa.

    Congrats!!! 🙂

    First off, CONGRATULATIONS!!! what an exciting moment this was for your family and so amazing you wanted to share it with the world. I understand your worries and concerns- my first pregnancy was riddled with terrible sickness that last until 17 weeks. Add to that I lost both my parents just 5 months apart during my pregnancy. When my oldest daughter was born a month early and on my late mother’s birthday I knew she was my angel truly heaven sent. She is so special to me. When I got pregnant a second time I worried how could I love another the same when my first child was my light that saved me from such a dark time in my life….but I absolutely ADORE & LOVE both my girls- in different ways and the same ways. My second pregnancy was a lot smoother (still had morning sickness but not as severe or as long). Food tasted so much better the second time around I gained 20 lbs more than the first pregnancy (oops!)

Its gonna be alot of work but they will be so close in age and thats what i always wanted for my kids. im actually dealing with a bit of anxiety the 2nd time around bc now i know whats coming…the PAIN OF LABOR. i had a very FAST but very very painful one. As im sure you know…..it fing HURTS like hell. It was not long ago enough for me to forget that….so i almost wish it was like the first baby..(having no idea what was coming) but like you said now we know what to be ready for….again congrats and always here for you if you need someone to bounce ideas or questions off of.

Then I feel horrible with the thought that I could ever love anyone the way I do him or more… Even thinking about it right now just kills me… But because I do want to enjoy him I am preventing myself from having a baby this soon (6months) and probably lettin my LO be around 4-6 yrs old before I start thinking of he next one… You made me cry btw!!!

I’m my mom’s oldest, and I know that she feels a special bond towards me because of it. I’m definitely not saying she loves me more, I think she has a different kind of bond with each of her kids.

You’ve been an inspiration to me but I hope I don’t get pregnant though, my baby’s just 3 months old. 🙂 I know how you felt of having new baby.. coz that’s what I was thinking too.. May you have an amazing journey! God bless your family! xx

    I am so happy for you, I seriously cried tears if joy with u when I watched the video. I pray you have a very easy and healthy pregnancy along with a beautiful healthy baby. You’ll always be Gio’s mother and hell always know how much you love him. Don’t worry, you won’t miss a thing with him. Congrats to you and your husband for your tiny blessing on the way!
