TELL US ABOUT YOUR FAMILY
My husband Elijah and I have been married for 5 years and we have two little girls so far. Jolene, who is four, and Ellie, who is one.

WHEN ARE YOU DUE?
I am due August 31st, and this will be my 3rd baby. We are having our first BOY!

DO YOU HAVE A NAME PICKED OUT?
Yes, but we aren’t sharing until after he is born.

HOW HAS JUGGLING PREGNANCY DURING THE PANDEMIC BEEN?
It’s definitely been quite different than my last two pregnancies pre-pandemic. The most difficult part was not having my family join me for our ultrasound.

DO YOU HAVE A BIRTH PLAN?
Yes, of course. I’m a planner, but I’m always open to the unexpected.

HOW HAS YOUR PREGNANCY BEEN?
Other than the usual pregnancy discomforts, it’s been good.

HOW ARE YOU FEELING RIGHT NOW?
Hungry!

WHAT ARE YOU MOST EXCITED ABOUT?
I am probably most excited about becoming a boy mom and getting to experience everything that comes with that for the first time!

WHAT ARE YOU MOST GRATEFUL FOR?
God, and all the wonderful opportunities he’s blessed me with, including our beautiful children.

WHAT HAS BEEN THE MOST UNEXPECTED THING ABOUT YOUR PREGNANCY?
Morning sickness! I was fortunate enough to not have any with my girls, but this time around has been a different story.

HOW HAS IT FELT TO WATCH YOUR BUMP GROW?
It’s an amazing feeling to know that a little life is growing inside my belly. Even though this is my 3rd time experiencing the growth, it never gets old.
