10 1/2 weeks


I have been putting off writing this post for .... oh about 6 weeks now. Probably because of my history & also because of people's expectation that you "wait until you're out of the woods". Well, if you know me, chances are good you have figured out that I'm pregnant. What was it that gave it away? The no make up & unwashed hair? Did I cry for no reason when we were having a conversation? Have I been wearing the same clothes for a week, now? Well, they are the only ones that fit & I'm for comfort these days. The morning sickness has wiped me out. And muffins, bagels & ice cream are all that make me feel better for even a moment & I'm gonna be huge when this is all said & done. But I think I'll take huge over nauseated.


I keep hearing the voice of a friend from way back when telling me she wish she had known I was pregnant before she found out that I had lost that baby - she would have liked to celebrate with me. And you know what? I would have liked to have celebrated, too! I don't want to hibernate for 12 weeks because I'm afraid that something might happen that I will tell my friends about anyway. So...............YAY! We are going to have another baby! And, no, the boy is not old enough to be a big brother - but he'll never know any different. He'll be fine. We middle children make it just fine. And even he looks pretty excited.


So, I thought I would let my few faithful readers in on the big news.....not that you didn't know already. But, it seems official writing it down :). OH, I almost forgot....put your vote in to the left - do you think we're having a boy or a girl??

Congratulations! We are finally out of the morning sickness woods and it feels good. I had my 16 week check up this week and the little squirly one inside made it hard for her to nail down the heartbeat. You would hear it right off then she would go fishing for it again. This one already is a wiggly one :)

Hope you feel better soon! When is your official due date?
