Marc and I have some exciting news to share today. We’ve got a new addition coming soon, and we’re beyond happy about it. Baby Belanger will be here this October. Yep, that’s right. We’re having a baby!
We found out the good news the day after I got back to the United States. While it was kind of a bummer that we weren’t together to celebrate the good news, we did celebrate over FaceTime. I was so shocked, I wanted to tell everyone I knew, but obviously that isn’t the best idea with something as delicate as a pregnancy. Luckily, we were able to share the news with our families and a few of our best friends.
I went to the doctor a few weeks later, and they confirmed everything and gave me a due date of October 16th, which just so happens to be the week of Marc’s birthday. When I went back a few weeks later we were able to hear the heartbeat, which was so, so cool. My mom came with me and she held my phone so Marc could be there over FaceTime. I know, we are so lucky that we have technology. And, it was pretty fun sharing the experience with my mom, too.
Since then, everything has gone really smoothly, and I’m so thankful that I haven’t been too sick or tired. As of tomorrow, I’ll be 17 weeks, and we have our next big ultrasound scheduled at the end of the month. Marc will finally get to see the baby in person, and that’s when we’ll find out the sex. I’m getting super anxious to find out. Hopefully that will give us a little help on choosing a name because little did I know that that’s really, really hard thing to do.
