Today I thought I'd blog about what it's like to be pregnant after a stillbirth. Of course, we are overjoyed and thrilled to be expecting again. Those are the parts that people see on social media, so you already know the joy that we are experiencing this pregnancy. But it doesn't mean that it is an easy journey to go through pregnancy again, so I thought I'd shed some light on our struggles these past 6 months.
June was a fun and busy month for us! It's been an unusually hot June for New York, so we've mostly spent the month trying to stay cool! We went out to Long Island one day to visit family and take a quick trip to Robert Moses Beach. Gigi, Bop, Uncle Jason, & Aunt Lexxie came to visit us, and Aly had her dance recital and moving up ceremony! School ended on the 26th, and then we flew to OK the next day, where we still are! Time is flying by, and I'm grateful to spend it with lots of friends and family!
May was a fun-filled month! Most notably, we found out we are having another boy, and we decided on his name--Jackson Graham Arevalo. Aly got to go rock climbing, we visited grandparents in Long Island, we spent a day upstate, had a gender reveal party, everyone got a stomach bug, and we spent the weekend in Jersey for our 7th Annual Memorial Day Weekend. This has been such a fun tradition, getting to spend every year with some of our closest friends!
I am now 18 weeks pregnant with our 4th child and 3rd son, so I thought I'd write a little about him :)
Let me back up to a couple of weeks ago. I went to my 16 week appointment at the hospital with high hopes that they would be able to find out the gender at this appointment. Ron was unable to make it to that appointment, so it was just me and Fynn.
