You May Have Heard The Rumors...

And my advice is to not believe everything you hear. BUT if you have heard the rumor about me being "with child," well that one is true. This is my public announcement that I am officially 12 weeks pregnant.

Some things about this pregnancy that are worth mentioning...

1) There will be 5 years between Morgan and this baby.

2) I am actually excited about a big age gap.

3) I've already had 3 ultrasounds and 2 regular OB appts and 1 appt with a perinatologist. All looks well and it's fun to watch our little "cheeto" grow!

4) Yes, I've been sick. But it's for a good cause.

5) Both my girls think it's a boy. Only time will tell. :-)

6) Considering the history with my pregnancies, if you are the praying type, prayers for a healthy, happy, term baby would be great. We would love to avoid the NICU if we can. That was rough.

So, without further delay, let me introduce you to our little baby! This was my ultrasound from today.

Congratulations. I am thrilled for you guys. :) And knowing what its like to have complicated pregnancies, I will definitely keep you in my prayers. As for being sick, if you still are, try lemon heads. It sounds bizarre but I am sick the whole nine months and sucking on lemon heads helps me. Worth a shot.
