#4 Already?


No it's not April Fools Day! I really am pregnant again! And it's another boy (poor Stacey)!

Here's how the pregnancy has gone so far: I went to my midwife at about 14 weeks for my first visit, and they couldn't find a heartbeat, so A WEEK LATER I had an ultrasound and the baby is find and we were able to see that it is a boy. I went by myself to the ultrasound (since we didn't know if the baby was ok, I didn't want my kids there) so on the way home I called Greg to tell him the news. Here's what happened when he told Scott:

Dad: Guess what Scott? The baby that is in Mom's tummy is a boy! You're going to have another brother.

Scott: Yeah, that's awesome. (Pause) But when are we having a girl baby?

Stacey basically had the same response. Then we had to explain to them that this baby isn't coming out for a LONG time, and then we have to wait a LONG time again to have a girl baby and even THEN it may not be a girl baby.

Being the mom, I am happy with with a boy or girl, but I do feel bad for Stacey. I know she'd love to have a sister to play with. But I think it will be fun for Daniel to have a brother who is so close in age.

I'm feeling great now that the morning sickness part is over. I always forget how much I hate that part. I don't throw up alot but feel nauseated all day long! I would sometimes lay around in the morning and my kids would ask me, "when will the baby not make you feel sick anymore?" I have to admit, I felt pretty overwhelmed in the morning sickness stage with the fact of having four kids soon, but now that it has past and things are back to normal, I know I'll survive! You guys all know people who have suvived four kids right? :)

She'll (Stacey) just be so super tough! Actually maybe that's why she's already so tough?!

Congratulations. I miss you guys!

EEEEEEEEKKKKK!!! How crazy that you couldn't find a heartbeat??? and then the NEXT week it was there!! Lucky for you that they could see the gender so early- Obviously I'm not an expert, but isn't it usually like 20 weeks? So excited for you. I need some sort of pep rally to decide to have another. You are super awesome. When is your next trip out here?

Yea!! Another boy for Jacob. I hope we get to see you and your belly soon. Soo great that morning sickness doesn't last the whole 9 months.

Stacy was so much fun when she came to spend the night. Shell get her sister one day. It will be like her and Cecily only shell be the big sister!
