I AM PREGNANT!!! Yes, baby #3 will be on his/her way in 27 weeks (I am almost 13 now), approximately May 4, 2011. WE ARE THRILLED!!! As I told you before we were trying for this baby and it happened very quickly for us as it has in the past. We are BLESSED and THANKFUL! We know everyone isn't given this gift as easily as some. We do not take it for granted.
Chloe and Lizzie are so excited. They talk about having a baby brother or sister and they can't wait for it to get here. Of course they think it will come tomorrow or in about a week. They have no concept of 7-8 months.
Unfortunately, for some, I have to tell you that we are NOT finding out the sex of the baby. We will have our 20 week ultrasound in 8 weeks but we will not have them tell us what it is. We love surprises. We did this when Chloe was born and it was SO NEAT. We did find out with Lizzie and enjoyed that as well but decided to wait this one out. There is no surprise like delivering a baby and someone saying "It's a ...." then getting to share the news with your family and friends in the waiting room. We do have names picked out though so I will share those with you in the coming weeks.
We did hear the heartbeat this past Monday on October 18th. The Dr. found it rather quickly and then measured my uterus and said "you are measuring kind of big, let's take a quick look and make sure there is only one baby in there." I looked at my husband and neither of us had an expression on our face at all and I think we are thinking "surely, it isn't twins." The Dr. put the scanner on my abdomen and quickly saw that there was just one baby. He smiled and laughed a bit and said "I really thought I was about to tell you that you are having twins." HA!! Only one healthy looking baby in there though in an oversized uterus I guess. He said my bladder must be really full even though I had just pee and didn't have the urge to go at all. Oh well, who knows what it was. Just ONE baby though. I have the pictures to prove it.
So happy that I was able to share this news with you so soon. I promise to keep you updated with my progress and such and will do a belly pick soon for you.
