My pregnancy story

Just 3 months before our wedding, we found out we were pregnant! We knew we wanted a honeymoon baby, and all of our family and friends knew how much we wanted a baby. We have been together for 7 years, so a family was very much on our minds. Our little angel wished to arrive sooner than we thought. I was 17 weeks pregnant on our wedding day, which was so special to us. We were able to announce the gender of our child at our reception. The day was filled with so much love and happiness! From the moment I found out I was pregnant (at just 3 weeks) I knew it was a girl. We had her name picked out for years before we got pregnant. She is named after Derek's mother. Elliott Debra McCoy (baby Ellie) will arrive in September 2017. We love her so much, and can't wait to meet our little sweetheart!

Below are some wedding pictures, A picture of me preggo on our honeymoon in Kauai! Our gender reveal, and my maternity pictures. my amazing husband took my maternity pictures for me. I was 28 weeks pregnant with Ellie.
