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? :)
