Here's a little Q&A with some of the most common things we've been asked lately:
Q: How are you feeling about all of this?
A: We are all a little overwhelmed still, but at least we have two months to get prepared. It's not going to be easy by any means but we have a lot of support, love and prayers from family and friends and even though this was not our plan we are so excited to be welcoming another little girl into our family.
Q: What do you need?
A: We have been so blessed all along the way, and received many necessities for free. We have everything we need for now, just keep us in your prayers :)
Q: How did you not know?
A: Excellent question! I don't know. Looking back there were so many signs but I think that it would have been so overwhelming and stressful for us to know this whole time. It's been a blessing to just be able to be together as a family of three, without the worry and stress of another one on the way. Because we didn't know we just kept living life normally.
Q: Isn't March 1st before the 40 week mark?
A: Yes. March 1st will be around 36 1/2 weeks for me. Due to the type of c-section they did last time, and because I was only 25 weeks along, there is a much much higher rate of uterine ruptures. The doctor told us that our new little one may still spend some time in the NICU, perhaps a week or two but nothing like we had with Emma.
Q: How does Emma feel about being a big sister?
A: She is so excited :) ha ha honestly we're working on starting her on solid foods, helping her sit up on her own, and giving her all the love and snuggles she can handle! Having two infants in the house will be a handful, but we couldn't be more excited.
