Details Details

First of all I just want to say thank you to all of you who left sweet comments about our new little bundle.  I have to admit that this is definitely an "OOPS" baby.  So much of and oops, that I am still questioning how in the world we actually got pregnant, and I have just come to the conclusion that we are the most fertile couple in the world.  I mean my husband has some Italian Stallions in him is all I can say :).  Anyways, our PLAN was to try to get pregnant with another baby around August of 2011.  Funny how God has other plans. 

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!

I must have missed the post where you made the announcement!

I'm excited for you and I'll THINK PINK for sure! Don't feel bad about crying etc. We all know that it's still a blessing and that you're going to love Baby #2 just as much as Caleb even though you probably can't even fathom that at this point!

M was COMPLETELY unplanned and I cried and cried BUT he's a blessing and I don't love him any less than I would have if he was planned. That I know for sure!

And I'm secretly {apparently not so secretly} jealous you have number two on the way! I need a sperm donor lol!

Christa said...

Oh and you DO show quicker than your first because your uterus has already stretched out and I think it's worse if you didn't lose all your baby weight {which I have no idea if you did or not lol}

Congrats! I got pregnant with my 2nd when my first was 9 months. It was scary and I felt so guilty at first, but when my 2nd baby boy was born all those feeling just melted away! It's not nearly as tough as I thought and I adore both my boys more than I ever could have imagined. Just think, it will be great having two so close in age, they will be best friends!!
