Not much has happened in the past week but I still wanted to do an update. I’ve been very busy with school and we are getting ready for another move (thank you Army!). We are very excited to be leaving Hawaii early but it’s bittersweet. Since we found out about our move we hit a few road blocks. I’ll be have my pregnancy care from November-March in Florida and then for the last month we’ll be in Tennessee.
When we found out about our move I research the laws there for us both being on the baby’s birth certificate and what we need to do for my wife to adopt. Right now, she cannot be on the birth certificate but the JAG lawyers will do the step parent adoption paperwork for us after the baby is born. Then once that goes through, she will be on the birth certificate. Even if she could be on the birth certificate when the baby is born we would still need to do the adoption but technically she would have zero legal rights over our child. It was very stressful trying to figure that all out but I’m so glad we got it done now.
My new due date is April 27, 2016! I got in next week for my NT scan and then a few days later I have my normal doctor appointment. This means we get to see our baby twice next week! If they can’t tell us the sex of the baby at my NT scan we’ll be going the following week to an elective ultrasound place to find out. Since my wife will be missing a few months of the pregnancy she wants to know what we are having. We still have our guesses but I know she’ll be happy to know for sure! Either way we are so excited to find out what we’re having.
My class ends this week and I only have two more assignments until I’m done but then my next class starts right up next Monday. I’m tired of doing papers and projects all the time but I know getting my Master’s degree will be worth it in the end.
That’s all I have for this week but I’ll post some bump pictures and another update after my NT scan. If anyone has any questions, leave them in the comments and I’ll be sure to answer them when I have time! I post a lot more baby stuff on my instagram if anyone is interested in see more updated pictures and posts you can check them out there!
