It official!

It official and the cat's out of the bag. We are going to have another baby!

I am beyond happy, as well as beyond nauseous. I am a little upset that I am so nauseous 24/7 and at the same time it is reassuring. When I was pregnant with Bubbie I only had waves of nausea at random times of the day that lasted only a few minutes. This time I just feel bad all day. Now to top it off I have a raging head-cold *sniff-snuff*

I am excited to be a mother again and scared at the same time to have two in diapers. My SIL thinks its better to just get it all over and done with in a few years. She says that there is 4 years of her life that were just a blur.

I have already developed pregnancy brain. It sets in pretty early with me. I put milk in the pantry and the cereal box in the fridge. I can't remember to wear my name tag for work, I drive past the street I turn on to go home. The list is endless.

I don't know how Bubbie will take it. I tried to tell him he was going to be a big brother and all he does is shake his head NO!

I went to the doctors today and all is well so far. They took a gallon of my blood and I just love peeing in the cup (fun, fun!). I will schedule for a 12 week ultrasound (secondary to my "advanced maternal age" - make me sound old huh?).

I can't wait to hear the heart beat! Tomorrow my embryo will officially be a fetus, woohoo!

So we have a lot going on and it should be an interesting 10 month journey.


  1. congratulations: hope you are feeling less icky soon.

    {I remember I used to put the keys in the fridge all the time when I was pregnant.}

  2. I'm so happy for you - and so jealous. I got sicker with each of my pregnancies, but I've already forgotten all that! This too will pass. Your first two will be about the same age difference as my first two were, and it's so perfect! They will be best buds! Hang in there. I'll be rooting for you (and your bean!)

  3. such wonderful news !! hang in there with the 24/7 sickness. i had it bad with both but worse with my second. i was throwing up. it ends...maybe that means it is a girl !!!

  4. Congrats! I think that it is good to have them close since they will have similar interests and once the new baby gets older they can play together. Two in diapers is not too bad, after all you are already changing them so there is no big deal in adding a few extra.

  5. Congrats! I never full "got" how cool it was to have two until the youngest was a toddler and began actively worshiping the oldest whose greatest desire in life is to be worshiped. Win, win!

  6. Congratulations!!

    I agree with SIL, get it all over with at once.
