Some pretty awesome news

Just in case you missed it on social media over the weekend…


We mean every word of that canvas. Praise God from Whom ALL blessings flow! We are so incredibly grateful for this answered prayer! There have been so many happy tears and so much rejoicing over the past couple of months!

So to answer the most commonly asked questions:

We’re 13 weeks pregnant and our due date is August 1st. However due to medical concerns it’s very possible Baby Vendetti might be coming earlier in July.

Yes, I have been sick. So sick. But I’ve been so blissfully happy about this precious baby that I can’t be upset about being sick. I’m starting to feel better now and am hoping that as I enter the second trimester I will start to feel awesome soon!

Yes, we’ve had an ultrasound and heard the heartbeat. In fact, we’ve had weekly ultrasounds for the past six weeks. 😉 The medical concerns we face aren’t ideal, but it has meant close monitoring of this little one which has been so wonderful!

While we are “at risk” for many things… this pregnancy has been textbook perfection so far. Baby Vendetti has shown perfect growth every week with ideal heartbeats. So many hundreds of little things that can go wrong, haven’t. Baby is growing and healthy. Praise God!

If you are the praying sort, we would so appreciate your prayers for a healthy pregnancy and a safe delivery! We are so excited to meet this precious child! Thanks for rejoicing with us, friends!

Love Rach

  7. I am just so over the moon excited for you both! Yall are going to be the best parents!! So I have another question….are yall going to find out the gender or wait to be surprised? Either way you are going to have a beautiful little model for trying out new photography locations, techniques, color combos, etc etc. 🙂

    • So I’m forever behind in responding to comments on this blog post, but as you know… we DO know the gender! 😉 We knew it even before we shared that we were pregnant on social media. 😉 I’m always amazed at people who don’t find out until the baby is born. I’m such a Type A planner that the thought of not knowing would stress me out.

  28. congraaattss!! Praise God from whom all blessings flow!!! He is good indeed. pregnancy can be scary but also a really precious, exciting time as you await to meet your little one. sooo happy for you!

    i have an email i send to my friends who are expecting, that reviews what to expect (signs of labor, when to call the OB) , stages of labor, etc. It’s like a review on all the info. you’d learn in a childbirth class. If you’d like, i can email it to you (also it has some personal experience too because we also just had a baby recently!).

  29. I’m so, so, so happy for you and Christopher! So many answered prayers, from the existence of sweet baby V, to all of the things that have gone right with growth, heartbeat, etc! YAY. I can’t wait to keep reading more!

  30. heyyyyyyyy just catching up on blog reading and wanted to say congrats again 🙂 haha.
    i am sending all of my good vibes and thoughts your way. i’m glad everything has gone well so far, except for being sick of course.

  31. You already know this, but I am just so SO happy for you, and I cried when I watched your reveal video on Facebook! I can NOT wait to see many many pictures of your little one! 🙂
