When my husband and I were in Arkansas for my niece’s brain surgery I wasn’t feeling too hot.
I ended up wanting to sleep the days away because I had a stomach ache that I just couldn’t shake.
I should have knew something was off when I let my husband drive us home. Anybody that knows me knows that my husband’s driving scares the ever living hell out of me! I seriously drive myself to the emergency room if we have to go. But I just couldn’t do it!
So I let him drive us the 17 hour trip home. He did a pretty great job, by the way 😉
The next day I decided to take a pregnancy test. We had joked about it the entire ride home. I kept saying that we couldn’t eat fast food on our road trip because “the baby doesn’t like it”.
I didn’t know just how accurate that would be.
When I saw the test come up positive I freaked. Well, that’s an understatement. I made my husband run out to buy more tests as I cried on the phone to my mom and sister.
Life would never be the same. And it all started with a little plus sign.
Around 8 weeks into the pregnancy I had to go to the ER. I was having a threatened miscarriage and it shook my world. I have never felt so much love and fear all at once. I felt love for my baby like no other. And I had an intense fear that if it was going to happen, there would be nothing I could do to prevent it.
I have spent the last five weeks obsessing over every little change. Even after we saw our little alien I worried.
I did announce it over facebook but I wanted to save a blog post until we hit the 13 week mark. As a business owner I probably worry about how a pregnancy will affect me a little more than some. One of my biggest fears would be that clients would be upset. But just the opposite has happened!
I could not have asked for more supportive clients and I cannot tell you all how much I appreciate you being so understanding and accepting of my pregnancy brain 🙂
So here we are!!!!!
We are now 13 weeks along in this pregnancy and I am preparing for the biggest life change yet!
I am currently transitioning into photography full time. I have been busy perfecting the studio to fit my vision. And I have been soo excited about what is to come!
Soon I will be launching a completely new website as well as a client lounge.
I will also be updating my pricing and adding in a few cool new offerings!
I look forward to having each and every one of you along my journey. I have received some amazing advice from clients, and incredible support as well.
Here is the video we made when we found out about our little one.
We are calling the baby Baby Persinger, or Baby P for short 🙂
And we don’t plan on finding out the sex until delivery.
I hope you all have an amazing day!
