And another makes 4!

Meet the newest member of our little family! Well, this is just a picture of a baby at 9 weeks, but...many of you know this already, but WE'RE PREGNANT!
My gosh we are so excited! The due date is either Dec 31st, or Jan 3rd, which really means absolutely nothing because it should really be a due fortnight or due month. If this baby comes in December, then...oh my gosh!
Dec. 18th - Deacon's birthday
Dec. 19th - my birthday
Dec. 25th - Christmas
Dec. 30th - anniversary

The other thing is that I am very sick. Way more sick than with Deacon. (maybe it means we're having a girl) Maybe that is silly. I would like some input on this. I am actually having to take meds for the nausea. I feel like I am on the verge of vomiting ALL THE TIME but can't. I can't get off the couch with out feeling the urge to rush to the bathroom. That is where the meds come in. Also, having lost 6+ lbs. in the last 2 weeks, it is time that I eat...even just a little. I am taking stuff that makes me so sleepy but that is better than so sick. So, that is the reason I haven't been blogging.

Now we just have to figure out the pre-natal thing. I wanted to have this baby at my mom's house with a midwife, and so we are trying to ask all the right questions. The Dr. that delivered Deacon says I have to be back no later than 5 months for him to take me. I may appeal that. I don't know. Luckily I have a couple of months to make any kind of decision.

This is a little random, because I am a little doped up, but well enough to type on the computer. So it's worth it. This part of pregnancy isn't as much fun because I don't look pregnant yet, only feeling it. Can't wait for that tiny little tummy pooch. (that is a pooch from the baby, not from...anyway)

Ok--talk to ya later.

I'm so excited for you! Can you do just a midwife without an OB? They are usually much more flexible. I haven't used one, but many friends have.

I agree with the "due fortnight". John was due Jan 2. His birthday is December 11! I hope your nausea passes quickly!

Love ya! Carol

How exciting! Congratulations! Hope the nausea stuff wears off soon. I'm rooting for a girl...but then again, 2 boys are the best.

YAY! What a blessing from God! I will add this new adventure in your lives to my prayers for you and Deacon. Hope the nausea gets under control soon!

i was as ill as you through two of my pregnancies and almost as bad for a third. i had to do the anti-nausea medication and lost a total of 15-20 pounds (depending on the pregnancy) before i gained 1. i hear your pain! i am praying for you! i hope that it is a short lived time in your pregnancy!

What a blessing. How wonderful to know that there is a tiny little bundle building their being inside your belly...

Phenergan? Anyway, that is the sleepy drug they gave me for morning sickness.

Someone once told me to eat potato chips and drink lemonade to releive nausea. (It is no wonder I gained 50 lbs.)

Anyway- congrats! Do you have a name for the peanut yet?
