for shiz, up the spout

So yes, in fact… I am pregnant. I know the suspense is killing you.

Here is my month 3 shot by the always amazing, super talented, beautiful, smart, and funny Wendy of blue lily.

Huge surprise, since we have been trying for a long time, but I am finally out of my first trimester, so I guess I have to tell everyone sometime.

He is due to be born on February 27th, 2009. Yes that is exactly 3 years and 1 day after Carmen. I guess that is a fertile time of year for us or something ;). I am kinda glad that Carmen will be a little older, and not so much a baby herself. Then she can help out a lot more, and if I can get my butt in gear and potty train her, maybe I won’t have more than one baby in diapers at a time. Although I do feel a little bad for ruining both of these kid’s birthdays for about… oh the rest of their lives. But what can you do? It’s not like you can ever really plan these things.

I couldn’t wait any longer to tell everyone because, well let’s face it, this bump is getting harder and harder to hide all the time, I am just way too tired of sucking it in. With all the speculation and the fact that I am exhausted, and nauseous all day make it hard for me to keep it a secret any longer.

Yes I borrowed the fertility calculator so people would stop asking me all the time, It was not time to tell yet.

I am almost 13 weeks along, and so far this pregnancy has been really different than my other two. I have not thrown up one single time this pregnancy which is just about the hugest miracle EVER! It has made this awful morning sickness period go by so much faster. I am tired and a little nauseous all the time but not throwing up is just the BOMB.

I don’t know if you caught that I called the baby a “he” earlier in this post, but I am about 80% sure it is a boy. Obviously it is way too early in to guarantee it one way or the other yet, but I have had 3 ultrasounds so far and as my doctor puts it there is a definite “protrusion”.

Take a look at this and tell me if I’m wrong…

Do you think that will be embarrassing to my boy in years to come? One of the perks of parenthood…

I feel so blessed to be able to give this another try. So let’s cross our fingers for some good luck this time, and take a leap of faith that I am supposed to have announced this already.

Too late now, Let’s do this. :)



  1. Hey!!! Congrats and we miss you so here’s to hoping you feel better SOON!

  2. I new it! I asked Lauren a couple of weeks ago because I thought I heard something slip, but she said you weren’t. It’s nice that you are not as sick this time.

  7. man i cant believe you kept it secret all this time!! you are a good liar. and i cant believe you are that far along and i totally didn’t even suspect. the fertility monitor was a good scheme. i just assumed you would be so sick we’d be able to tell – glad to hear it hasn’t been too bad this time. and what the heck – how have you already had 3 ultrasounds??? what kind of strings are you pulling? and geez – you already got preggie pictures?? and you already got them back from Wendy?? you are on top of things. we are all gonna be whales together come about xmas time. what fun! we should have wendy take a pic of me, you, and chantel in all of our prego glory. congrats!

  8. Wow.I’m feeling left out. Not really. But dang–you DID hide that well–the belly I mean. So cute and tiny! Yay for boys! It’s totally a boy–Shannon knew with Drew by 13 weeks too! Congrats….again.

    Comment by Krystal — August 20, 2008 @ 9:35 pm

  9. Congrats, I can’t believe you were able to hold it in for so long. Seeing you on Monday I had no clue. I know this is such a blessing for you guys and I know everything will go great. And definitely a boy you can totally tell and who would have thought that would have shown at 13 weeks, how exciting for you guys. A little golfing buddy for Lee.

  10. You look so dang hot. He’s going to be such a cutie- Auntee wendy will spoil him so much! I gotta go shop!

    Comment by Wendy — August 20, 2008 @ 10:36 pm

  12. i am so happy for you!!!!!!! i definitely see the protrusion!

    Comment by traci — August 21, 2008 @ 6:15 am

  13. wendy – what do you mean you took them forever ago? that bump wasnt there forever ago!? unless you photoshopped the bump. ha that would be funny. and seriously what’s the deal then – how long have you been in the know? it’s a conspiracy, i tell you…

    awesome pictures though. no surprise there.

    Comment by Tami — August 21, 2008 @ 6:33 am

  14. Oh wow, congratulations!! And your pregnancy photos are simply stunning.

    Comment by Julie — August 21, 2008 @ 7:49 am

  15. Tami,
    I told wendy 2 weeks ago so she would have time to get both of my pictures edited by the time I wanted to announce. Plus I needed someone to watch carmen for a dr visit. It is not a conspiracy.
    I really did make her do my pictures extra quick… Threatening to kidnap belle is surprisingly effective :).

  16. A boy and no barfing! Sa-weeet! So you and Gwenny will have boys about 3 months apart. Way to baby train. :) I’m really excited for you guys! Congratulations!!

    Comment by Melinda — August 21, 2008 @ 8:15 am

  17. Ohhhhh, you have to use Isabelle… I threatened to kidnap Tyler, but it had no effect. Congrats by the way!

We needed another boy cousin to give him a little support with all those cute girlie cousins. I am so excited for you. Congrats!! We are so excited for you guys.
