I know, I know.. Bad blogger. I promised a comeback, and it was pretty short lived. Right?! Well, here I am! :)
And, with EXCITING news! (Although by now, I'm sure most of you are aware of it. Just pretend to be surprised, okay?)
We're having another baby!!!
This little one has been on my heart for a long time. I had always felt like a piece was missing from our family puzzle, but Jason felt differently. After many talks and tears, we finally decided it was the right decision for our family. :)
Luckily, I was able to become pregnant immediately and things have been moving right along ever since.
I found this adorable shirt on Etsy, and bought it to reveal the pregnancy to friends. The boys absolutely loved it! And I loved that I could also wear it as my Halloween costume. :)
The "big" ultrasound was today. We decided, once again, to not find out the sex of the baby. While, it's a hard choice to make, it's also a fun one! Having Jason tell me the sex of each boy after he was born was an incredibly moving experience for both of us. We love the surprise!
This time it's a little tougher, since we know that this is it for us. Most of our family and friends are predicting a girl, but I'm not so sure. I honestly have no feeling one way or the other this time around. But, for the record, Aidan thinks it's a boy and Connor and Daddy think it's a girl. (I think that Jason WANTS a girl though! Don't tell him I said that!)
The baby is healthy and was kicking up a storm during my appointment. The boys came with us and loved seeing the baby on the screen. At one point Connor said, "Baby, come out!" It was so funny. I asked him why he wanted the baby to come out and he replied, "Play with Connor." So sweet. I think he's going to make a terrific big brother. :)
One thing I will admit to, is that it is HARD being pregnant while running around after two rambunctious toddlers all day. I am spent by 5pm everyday and desperately need a nap. I've also been having a few issues with my pelvis for the past month. The doctor isn't quite sure what it is, but I'm going to have a Doppler done next week to get to the root of the problem. Keep me in your thoughts, friends?
Right now I am 22 weeks and due in early April. I'm glad that I missed the brutal Texas summer heat this time around. Having a September baby was rough. Really rough. It's been fun to see how different this pregnancy is from my last two. I definitely looked pregnant much earlier around this time and look bigger than I did with the boys at 22 weeks. But, I'm glad I'm out of the "I'm pregnant but look fat" phase. That's always the worst. :)
I'm just glad that we decided to add one more to our family. Five is our perfect number- I know it. I promise to try and update more. :)
Have a good day, friends!
