We're growing!!!

We are beyond thrilled to share that we are expecting baby Andrews #2 this coming January! Our precious Kate is going to be a BIG SISTER! All of this sort of seems surreal because it feels like I was just pregnant with her. It's been 20 months since I gave birth to our first and we are so excited about this new journey that our family is on in becoming a family of 4. Yes, this baby was planned. We have been praying for this child and the Lord has blessed us in His most perfect timing. No, we're not sure if this is our last. We'll see how things go. We started young for a reason!
Chris and I have been absolutely amazed how everything has been working out. I was diagnosed with a thyroid disease at the beginning of the year started medication right away to try to get my levels back to normal. I was told that if I get pregnant with this disease there is a very high chance of my body not being able to hold it and would lose the baby. We immediately began to pray against the "statistics". I had blood test after blood test done and once it began to look "normal" again we gave it a try. The next thing we knew we we were pregnant! I went in for countless blood tests again and the they not only confirmed that I am pregnant but that my thyroid levels are also back to normal! Such confirmation that God has got His hand on us and this sweet new life that is growing inside me!

I had my first ultrasound last week and everything looks great, we even got to see the heart beat which is so amazing. This may be our second baby but we are just as excited as the first time! A little lot more tired but thrilled to say the least.

Stats:

Due: End of January (my birthday)
Will we find out the sex?: YES!!! Are you kidding me? I'm counting the days!
Morning sickness?: More like NIGHT sickness! blah!
Cravings: All I want to eat is bread. Same as when I was pregnant with Kate. Our house is stocked with bagels and waffles. Don't bring meat near me. Gross!
Implants?: No, I'm just pregnant and that's one of the perks. 

I'm also in the really akward stage right now where I don't look pregnant. Just looks like I've been hanging out at Krispy Cream and In N Out too much. 

Excited to share this journey with y'all, stay tuned for lots of pictures to flood your computer screen!
after telling grandpa and grammy!

spilled the beans to Mimi and Papa over Memorial Weekend!

SO excited!

She'll make the greatest BIG sissy!

Also, there is just ONE in there! I made the ultrasound tech confirm for me and then I did a hallelujah! Praise the Lord! So far the twin thing on Chris' side of the family has been good to us, only singletons here!
