Hi there! It’s great to have you join my family and I on our new journey. We’ve decided to expand our family! Yes, the husband and I are trying to conceive our second child.

All the Joy. All the Fears. All Over Again. That’s 40weeks Plus.

It’s been five years since I was pregnant and had my baby girl. And now I get to start all over again. The excitement of being pregnant, the worries that come along with a new baby, but now with the added layer of a future big sister. It’ll be much the same, yet oh so different.

I look forward to the day I can say, “Hey! I’m pregnant!”  But until then, all the things that come along with it, should make for some good conversation.

So, go ahead. Click on the feed button and subscribe to our feed so you can stay updated on our 40weeks Plus!
