I have to admit that I did have an "OMG" moment when I first saw the positive sign. I was home alone with Caleb while Nick was at work, and I basically sat down in the floor of the bathroom, held Caleb and cried. I called Nick and asked him to come home because I really just needed him there at that point. I don't want you to think that I hated the fact that I was pregnant, I was just in shock. I mean my baby was 10 months at the time, I was pregnant this time last year, and I just needed a few days to take it all in.
Now, I must admit I am truly excited and attached and praying for PINK. You can pray with me if you feel the need. PINK PINK PINK PINK. Can you tell I really really really wanna girl? I still have my "I can't believe it Moments", but I am adjusting more and more every day to the fact that I will have TWO UNDER TWO at the 2011!! I am excited to see the plan God has for our family with this one. I am excited to love a new little baby again, and I am super excited for Caleb to be a big brother.
Yes, I know it will be HARD. I am sure there will be days when I need a BREAK, and where I have to step back and pray for God's help. Even though if we could have planned it this little one would not be on the way just yet, I know that we are beyond blessed. We are blessed to be fertile, when I know so many couples struggle. My heart breaks for these couples and I pray for them daily.
In case you are wondering, yes we know what birth control is. However, our form of bc just did not work. The last thing I need is lectures or people telling me what I should have done. This is a little baby that God has BLESSED us with, that I will love beyond words!! We are so excited.
On to the stats. Well, they are a little up in the air. I am not sure how far a long I am. I am somewhere between 8-12 weeks. I remember having a period in April, but we were moving in May, and for the life of me I can not remember if I had one or not. I go to the doctor Tuesday, and they are suppose to schedule an ultrasound for sometime next week to find out for sure. I am excited to know. So little bundle is due either in Jan or Feb. We shall see. Just remember to think PINK.
I have been a lot more sick to my stomach with this baby. No up-chucking, just NAUSEA! Ughh. I have also had a few drops in blood sugar. Keep that in your prayers.
On another note, I am hoping I am further a long, because I am ALREADY SHOWING!! It took my literally 26-27 weeks with Caleb before I was "obviously prego". This one...well, I look like I did with Caleb at 20 weeks. Oh dear. I am NOT ready to be big again! Hopefully it is just my imagination, but I am pretty sure it is not. You be the judge.

Okay, you can admit it. I may actually get HUGE with this pregnancy. Maybe I need to slow down on the baby food I have been craving!
