Stop. Breathe. Celebrate!

3 Jul

We made it to 18 weeks! More importantly, we made it to the big ultrasound. The high-risk OB checked over every organ, every finger and every toe, and our little baby is developing perfectly. I am the first to admit – I am neurotic. I rarely enjoy good news without wincing and waiting for the other shoe to drop. So before I start worrying about my thyroid medication again, I really want to savor this moment.

We made it this far. We’re going to be okay.

I used to be a bit skeptical about gender reveal parties. Is it just another excuse to post pictures on Facebook? But we really needed to celebrate this milestone with our family and friends. Take a moment and celebrate our wonderful news with us! This 4th of July, I feel totally and completely happy and blessed.
