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. :)
