Bumpity Bump Bump

I finally got our picture disk in the mail! Our photographer waited until all 3 sessions were complete so she could keep them in one place. First up, maternity pics! These were done 6 days before Gavin's arrival. Trevor had been waking up earlier that week and was so tired by the time she came. He was not cooperative like he usually is for pictures. We ended up laying him in our bed and he passed out! Then, we woke him up to go take outdoor pictures. It was freezing that day but we braved it for a few.

Laying flat, my belly was so small. She had me hold my breath and puff it out for these pictures!

A little bribe for a blue eyed boy..

One of my faves

Tom and I had a long talk in the car yesterday about when we want my belly to be big and round. The short answer? Tomorrow. ;) We both feel exactly like we did after I had Trevor..another one can not come soon enough. Our plan is to nurse Gavin until 1 and then start up meds for a FET. We have 6 embryos left from Gavins IVF cycle. I may consider seeing if Dr. M. wants to try anything else as soon as I get a period. After Trevor, I didnt really give my body a chance to get pregnant with something easier than IVF. Who knows what will happen this time around. I am curious how many patients Dr. M. sees like us..looking for a 3rd or 4th child. I feel like most couples who have to do IVF stop at one or two. I am SO thankful we have the insurance coverage to help us complete our family.

I find myself with a lot of different feelings. On one hand, I can not wait to be pregnant again. I love everything about it. On the other, I dont want to rush Gavin's infancy and Trevor's childhood. I need to soak in my 3.5 week old peanut and my 2 year old comedian. I cant always be fantasizing about whats coming next. I need to live in the moment. Because nothing is better than life right now.

I find myself dealing with these exact same feelings. We just had our 2nd, and I can't wait to be pregnant again! I have to tell myself to enjoy the NOW.

You were a beautiful pregnant momma!

Erin, I completely understand how you feel. I'm in the same boat. Emmett is almost 3 and Kennedy just turned 1 and I find myself struggling to just enjoy what we have. But I can't wait to add to the family. My new mantra is -Slow down, cuddle the baby and laugh with the toddler.

Love the family pictures

Love the pictures!!

I know what you mean about wanting another one when you just dont' feel complete:) I had thought I only wanted two but I don't feel my family is complete just yet but I know God has a plan!
