I was reading posts (from not that long ago) when I was 32 weeks pregnant with Addison. I thought it would be fun to post the quiz again with my pregnancy with McKenna.
Birthday: Sept. 1
Birth Place: Austin, TX

Are you still together? Always and Forever
How did you find out you were preggo? I was feeling like I was pregnant (but not thinking I really was), so I took a pregancy test just to make sure. I was very shocked when it came back positive.
What kind of Pregnancy test did you take? I can't remember the brand but it was digital HEB brand. I remember asking the nurse if I should get a name brand test to make sure I was really preggo
How many? 2 What were your 1st symptoms? Exhaustion, Nausea
Who did you tell first? Leanne (I was freaking out). I went to the Carter's store to get Addison a "Big Sister" t-shirt, size 2 was the smallest size they had (makes sense). I put it on Addison for when Brian got home from work, he freaked out when he saw it but was very excited.
Who was with you when you found out? Addison was down for her afternoon nap
Was your baby planned? We planned on having another baby, this little blessing surprised us though!
How far were you when you found out? 6 weeks per the baby size at our sonogram
How did your parents react? Both sides were very surprised, Addison was only 9 months when we announced the pregnancy. We announced the pregnancy at Addison's Baby Dedication lunch with all our family and close friend.
Due Date: December 24th
Do you know the sex? Yes
If so, boy or girl? Girl
Any names? McKenna Noelle
Any Ultrasounds? Yes, 6 weeks (to confirm pregnancy, we had no idea how far along I was), 8 weeks to compare size and 20 weeks for organ check
Have you heard the heart beat? Yes!
Who do you think it will look like? I think she will look more like me since Addison looked so much like Brian at birth
Will the baby have siblings? Yes, older sister 17 months apart
Have you felt the baby move? Yes, she is a lot more calm than Addison, but I love feeling her move inside me.
Did you have morning sickness? A little, but nothing too major
Did you have any cravings? Jalapeno chips, pepperocini's
Did you have any mood swings? Not really...I can justify every emotion I have experienced during this pregnancy :) Brian would probably answer this question differently
Formula or Breastfeeding? Breastfeeding - Goal 9 months
Have you bought anything for the baby yet? NO! There is not a lot to buy since we are having another girl but there are several things I will get before her arrival.

What the 1st thing you might say to the baby? Hey sweetheart
Will you let anyone video tape the birth? Heck no
Are you excited? YES!!! I cannot wait to hold a sweet baby in my arms again! Addison's baby stage went way too fast! The thought of having a newborn and a 17 month old can be overwhelming at times though.
Who will help you with the baby after the birth? Our families and close friends
What is your favorite thing about being pregnant? Blessing from God and something I do not take for granted
What is the worst thing about being pregnant? Heart burn, physical limitations in playing with Addison and giving her what she needs (carrying her when she needs comfort for long periods of time is the hardest).
What's one thing do you miss doing since being pregnant? breathing normal after doing simple tasks (walking up stairs, getting off the couch).
Any days you wish you were not pregnant? Yes, when I cannot fulfill Addison's needs or when I have to go up and down the stairs a million times in one day
Are you ready for a baby? Yes, ready for a baby, but still some prep work to do before she arrives
Do you have insurance? Yes
How many kids do you want? 2, maybe 3
Do you talk to the baby? Sometimes
Do you still feel attractive? Yes and No, I am gaining a lot less weight during this pregnancy thanks to the Addison aerobics, but I still have a lot of unattractive moments.
Do you like kids? Love them, but older toddlers / kids I dont have experience with freak me out because I have not experienced that "stage" yet.
How far along are you now? 33 Weeks
Brian and Carrie have been married since January 2004. We love the Lord and are blessed with wonderful friends and a supportive, loving family. In July 2009 we welcomed our first daughter, Addison Rose. She is a spunky, fun toddler and we love her so much. Sweet McKenna Noelle was born on Christmas Day 2010. Having two children 17 months apart is a little crazy, but that is our life and we would not change it for the world.
Our families theme scripture is "Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus." 1 Thessalonians 5: 16-18
Our life since getting married has been an amazing journey and hope you enjoy reading about it.
