… and it’s not a pumpkin pie!
That’s right you guys, number FOUR is on its way!!
I wanted to wait a little while before I announced the big news, you know, just to be safe. But now that I’m into my second trimester I felt like it would be a good time to share the wonderful surprise.
Can you believe it?! I know. We’re ecstatic.
I knew something was up when all of a sudden, it seemed, it was all I could do to get out of bed and get the kids fed. I had absolutely zero energy. I spent a lot of time on the couch, completely drained. It was a struggle just to get basic things done around the house for a few weeks. I kept telling my husband that something was wrong with me. I finally called him one day at work and asked if he would pick up a pregnancy test on his way home. I figured, if I wasn’t pregnant, I needed to be seen by a doctor. You’d think I’d know the signs by now, huh?!
Imagine our surprise when the test… actually two tests, confirmed my suspicion. Yep. Here we go again! We were both very excited, though in all honesty I was a little hesitant at first. I mean, baby Xia’s birth is still SO fresh in my mind! Of course another little one would be such a blessing to us… but can’t I just skip the hard parts?
Anyways, turns out I was so completely drained ’cause my body was way over doing it. I was still nursing Xia every 3-4 hours throughout the day, and my system was doing its best to now provide for three! I’ve been working on weening Xia, and have her down to nursing 1-2 times a day, so I’m feeling much better. She’s almost a year and a half old now, so it’s time anyways.
We plan on doing another homebirth, so we won’t be finding out what the baby is until it’s born (unless something comes up and we need to go get a sonogram).
Please pray for me if you think of it. Pray for a safe delivery, and a healthy baby.
So, got any cool baby names to share? Me and Jerry are stumped.
