Three's a Crowd

I'm pregnant. And you should know that you are not the only person who didn't know.  I haven't really told anyone yet, not even my mom! Well, bob of course knows and we told Tucker last night. He informed me that he wants a boy baby that walks.  We will see. I wanted to do kind of an experiment and just let people find out as they read the blog.  So the people who read the most regularly will be the first to know.  It might be helpful if you post a comment or give me a call when you find out that way I will know who knows.  I'm about 9 weeks along and due on May 15th.  I wont find out if it is a boy or girl until about 20 weeks so don't bother asking.

Bob and I are very excited and feel lucky and blessed to have gotten pregnant after just one month of trying.  We can't wait to bring another baby into this world.  It has been difficult for me to hide it this long because I don't like lying to people and I also have been feeling pretty sick.  I am at least twice as tired as usual and although I haven't thrown up my stomach feels like it wants to all the time.  So if you have stopped by and noticed my house is always a mess these days or seen me out and about with no make up on and what looks like pajamas I have an excuse so give me a break.  It has been so hard for me to take care of the kids and just do everyday things like grocery shopping lately.  Bob has to make dinner almost everyday and we end up getting fast food (yuck) about three times a week because I can barely make dinner and definitely do not have the energy to clean up after it.  Ok, I think that is enough complaining for now. 
Here is the ultra sound I got yesterday.  The baby is only about an inch from head to bum.  And i know it will be hard for many to make out but the head is the circle to the left and just under that and to the right is the body. You can kinda see the baby's shoulders but you wont really be able to see the arms or legs.  Everything looks normal so far.

Wow. I can't believe you haven't even told your parents yet! You are very, very, very, very lucky to have gotten pregnant after only a month of trying. How exciting for you guys.

Bob says: "I think we have only gone out to eat three times in a month, not three times a week. Unless you, tucker and penelope are hitting up McD's during the day. :-) And I like making Dinner. Cleaning up is what I don't like."

Congrats! After I saw you today, I was wondering if you were pregnant. So exciting.

Sara said...

Congratulations! I wish I would have read this before I saw you at Costco today so I could tell you congrats in person. You looked great by the way! I didn't have make-up on either because I had just got done at the gym!

Rebecca said...

That's wonderful news! We are so excited for you all. It's a huge blessing. And I totally feel for you about being pregnant with two little ones already running around crazy.

Maria Ash said...

Yay!!!! I am obviously SO excited for you :-) I am so sorry you are feeling So sick. This 3rd pregnancy I'm going through was BY FAR been the worst. Same as you, i only threw up a few times but felt awful until even just a few weeks ago. I'll pray for you! We find out on teh 25th if ours is a boy/girl. So look for a text/call. We love you two and pray Bob can whip you up some tasty meals.

Oh Congratulations! I had no idea. ;-) And you guys are welcome over for dinner ANYTIME! You could even eat and leave, you don't have to stay if you'd rather not. But I don't want to take the fun away from Bob.

Congrats! I have only had 3 kids for 9 days now but it is fun to see how the older ones respond. I'm sorry you aren't feeling great... lets just say my boys watched a LOT of movies while I was pregnant since I didn't have much energy. Good luck with everything!

Lorraine Butler said...

Okay, okay, I would have noticed as soon as I logged on (on my own!). I guess I just haven't been online much the past couple of days.

Congrats! A cute family just getting cuter.

The Abel family said...

Congratulations! I wish you would have told me when we talked to you on Saturday. I am sure everyone else knew, so you could have said something. I hope you feel better soon :)

You're pregnant AGAIN?!!! That's so exciting! You know, Heidi and Jason really want to have a baby. They've even decided to get married sooner so they can start trying. We need to have a serious catch up day!
