Official Pregnancy Announcement!

pregnancy announcement, danielle hernandez

I'm pregnant!

Nineteen weeks and three days and my baby is already a bouncy little bean. Our second little sprout is due on February 29th, 2016.

I've been well this pregnancy and trying not to let my allergies get the best of me. This time around the baby is consistently measuring a little bigger than average, so I'm sure this one won't be a tiny, less than 6 pounder again. I've only gained three to four pounds, but my weight has shifted on my body so I already have quite the round little belly!

We've had the down syndrome screening (all clear!) and the anatomy scan (perfect results!). During the latter, the technician asked if I wanted to know the sex of the baby. I said yes, but didn't want to find out before Ashton, so he gave me a sealed envelope after the scan. Ashton wanted to know right away and opened the envelope as soon as he got his hands on it, but I wouldn't mind waiting until the baby is born so I still haven't looked. Of course I am curious, and it would make choosing a name a little easier, but I am enjoying that there is one aspect that is still a surprise.

I can't wait to meet my leap year baby!

  2. Congratulations, love the idea of not knowing, I wonder if you will be able to hold out until d day, or will Ashton let slip, maybe he is good at holding secrets.
    Wishing you the remainder of the pregnancy, to be blooming and smooth x

    1. Thank you. I'm going to try and hold our ad long as I can. I keep making small goals. First it was to wait until at least half way (which is today), and my new goal is to hold out until Thanksgiving (that is something I will truly be thankful for! ).

    1. Thank you. I have not even thought about birthdays yet, I just assume babies are rarely born on their due dates and that he or she will probably come early.

    1. I kind of enjoy letting Ashton have this little secret with the baby. It is one thing that is between just the two of them right now, since I get to cherish every little movement while carrying the baby, which is something that he obviously can't share. Thinking of it that way makes me happy that he knows and I don't. :)
