BECOMING Hope Morgan

Its been 8 months since I delivered my miracle baby and I feel like it happened yesterday. Going through IVF has been one of the hardest things I have EVER went though. The other hardest…… countless surgeries and several miscarriages.

In a rect Instagram post I spoke about feeling like I was ugly because of the weight I am currently. Let me elaborate. I was 110lbs my whole life. When I got married I was 100lbs. I have never been 155lbs which was my end pregnancy weight.. I am now 140lbs. When you are small your whole life gaining 30-35 lbs is new. Its different. Your clothes don’t fit the same. You have to learn how to love yourself including your body allllll over again. Yes, I housed a human being. Yes, I birthed a boy child BUT that doesn’t negate the newness that is now Hope Morgan the mother of Jeremiah Scott Morgan. I work in an industry and we also live in a world that makes you feel that thin is in and thats it. I am learning to love me while being healthy of course!

January 2, 2018 I have just entered into my 3rd trimester. I am now 28 weeks pregnant and the countdown to the arrival of Baby Morgan has begun. I am extremely excited and yes a little nervous. Becoming a mom has always been a dream of mine and it is about to come true. Today I had a sonogram and Baby Morgan the active baby that he is moved the entire time. THE ENTIRE TIME!!! One of my goals this year with becoming a mom is to be patient with myself and with Baby Morgan.

Christmas has come and gone and we are gearing up for the New Year. I can’t believe it!  I remember when the clock struck 12 going into the year 2000. Time is literally flying by.  I am extremely excited about the upcoming year. January is my birthday, March is the arrival of our son and soo much more.

As promised Part 2 of Baby Morgan’s Registry is finally complete! For first time parents we tried not to go overboard…keyword:tried. Once we were handed that scanning gun it was hard not to go for everything cute. Buy Buy Baby has some of the best, top of the line items for babies. The staff at the Chelsea location were very friendly knowledgeable and was extremely patient. Here are some of my favorite things:

This is only a small, very small portion of the items we scanned.  We are also registered at Babies R Us and Amazon for those that live outside NY. As the days and weeks progress I will share more of my favorite things. Once Baby Morgan is born we will see if my favorite things become his favorite things.

Baby Morgan Registry Part 1

Happy Monday!! I know I know…where have I’ve been? Ever since I announced I was expecting our first child I have been placed on bed rest. SO all activities had to come to a halt for a couple of months. I am currently 5 months pregnant and a lot has happened in the last months…let’s just say this will definitely be a miracle baby!

We went on a baby moon! The doctor prescribed a small getaway to Shawnee Poconos in Pennsylvania . I needed a new scenery, fresh air and a chance to plan out the coming of Baby Morgan. Of course it turned into a mini photoshoot.

After our baby moon we were eager to tell everyone the gender of the baby. Luckily I found out early in my pregnancy, but mistakenly told my husband in a night time bed conversation …smart move. I tried to cover it up, but it was too late. We are having a ………

Today we had the pleasure of starting our registry! There are sooooooooo many options even Dominos has a registry. After attending the Big City Moms Biggest Baby Shower Ever we started our registry at Buy Buy Baby . Never heard of the Biggest Baby Shower Ever? It a huge party like a baby shower to gain knowledge about all the latest gadgets and things your baby will need. My favorite part was the abundance of free samples . At the end of the event I received the biggest goodie bag ever and a 4moms bounceROO.

If you’ve been following my story my husband and I have been trying to conceive for 5 years. I remember the days I couldn’t even walk into a baby section without tearing up. Today I walked into Buy Buy Baby holding back tears. I was overjoyed and excited to be in this stage of my pregnancy . I am fully enjoying this stage and with 4 months to go I am ready to see my little pumpkin. Don’t give up on your dreams!
