On July 13th we found out that Bryker is getting a baby brother and we couldn’t be more excited!! 2 little boys running around is going to keep us hopping but it is going to be so much fun! I feel bad I haven’t been better about blogging or taking bump pictures this time around. But there most definitely is a bump and this little man is a mover! We can’t wait to meet you! Right now we think your name will either be Keegan or Wyatt and your middle name is for sure Karl after your grandpa Brown. We love you baby boy!

Here are some more details for journaling purpose:

I’d been throwin’ out the idea of baby #2 for a little while just kind of seeing what we thought but we thought it would take a little while longer, like 3 or 4 months longer. I went in for a yearly dr. appointment and was talking to my awesome dr. about our plans. But we had a little problem because I hadn’t had a period since December and it was March! I had taken a test in January and February and both were negative so I was getting a little worried that baby #2 might not come along for awhile. Well, the dr. put me on birth control to get regular again and sent me off with the hope of being pregnant in 3 or 4 months. I took the first week of the white non-drug pills and was sick once in the middle of the night that week. Ter completely joking said that I was pregnant. I took one of the real pills and then thought I should take one more test just to be triple sure.  I didn’t want to be pregnant and taking birth control. I could not believe my eyes when there were 2 lines!! Shocked is putting it lightly! I set the test up on the counter in the bathroom and waited for Ter to come home and get a little surprise. I couldn’t really wait for him to find it on his own and plus he thought I was being a little creeper standing by the doorway :) I wish I had a picture of his face. At first I thought he wasn’t happy but he was just so darn surprised! I called the dr. the next day and they got me in on April 5th for an ultrasound. I think the nurse I talked to got a little excited and thought I was super far along but when we got the ultrasound they couldn’t even see a heartbeat just a gestational sac. It was pretty confusing and we left with mixed feelings was I pregnant or not? They said that I could be anywhere from 5 days to 4 ½ weeks. I got blood work done after that and the dr. said the levels looked good and that everything should be ok. So then the waiting began for Medicaid (seriously the biggest blessing e.v.e.r!) to kick in so we could get our next ultrasound. We ended up waiting like 7 weeks. We thought the farthest I could be was 10 weeks and got a big surprise when we saw a little person instead of just a bean on the ultrasound screen! Turns out I was almost 13 ½ weeks at our second ultrasound! It was so crazy to go in expecting to see something tiny and see a fully formed little person in there-reality hit! (As if the awful morning/all day sickness wasn’t reality enough :) So then life kept moving a million miles an hour, Ter left for his internship, me and Bryke partied and baby brother grew. This pregnancy has been so different than with Bryke. I got sick around 5 weeks (which made me think it was a girl) and being pregnant with a 1 ½ year old doesn’t leave you a lot of time to be sick or just enjoy it. I feel like it’s gone faster which has been pretty nice. I’m 24 weeks now feeling great, getting big and counting down the weeks until we go from 3 to 4 :)
