Pregnancy Journey: Here We Go Again!

Sharing is caring!

It’s funny how we were planning to have another baby later this year or early next year only to find out days later that I was already 1 month along, hahaha!

So without even trying, we’ll be expecting a sibling for Damien sometime in September 2020.

I suspected that I was pregnant about two weeks ago when I started feeling crampy after an intense workout. Yes, I was working out like there’s no tomorrow for the past several months and it’s a good thing that this didn’t affect the baby so far. That’s gonna stop soon, I’m afraid.

A couple of nights back, I felt persistent cramping in my lower abdomen after spending hours at the mall with Damien and the hubs. That’s when I asked the husband to get me a pregnancy test. I couldn’t wait for the morning to take the test so I took one as soon as we got home. It tested positive and I just stood there for a second trying to process the whole thing.

I showed the test to the hubs and we literally spent the next one and a half-hour in shock. Not that we’re unhappy for being pregnant – quite the opposite because we wanted Damien to have a brother or a sister before he turns two – we just didn’t think conceiving would be this easy. And that we’d be conceiving this soon.

This early, I am already thinking of a good baby name. I felt that I’ll have another boy but I am crossing my fingers for a girl. Dorian Rocco is the working name right now. I like Rocco because it’s modern and Dorian is the name that we’ve already had in mind for a second boy. Vivienne Celetine still, if it’s a girl.

The good news, we’re doing this a second time so I feel that things will be less stressful to handle as far as where to give birth, what baby stuff to get, etc. Our only issue now is finding a full-time yaya for our little Peach!

So yes! Our family is growing soon so watch this space!
