Pregnancy update

The girls were so well documented because that was when my wonderful husband was blogging. I feel like this little one is getting jipped a bit.

But I am a little over 13 weeks and so far all is well with the pregnancy. I am having a hard time getting over this whole no ultrasound every visit (since I kind of liked that when we had the twins) but we did hear the heart beat yesterday and it was 157. I have had a lot of people try to predict boy or girl based on that. This is right where the girls were, but I know a lot of people who had boys with high heart rates. So we will see. We will actually find out on December 5th, which feels like Christmas is coming early!

I am still having sickness, which is frustrating. I gave myself a timeline and am passed it now, so I think I am more annoyed that I am at 13 weeks and still getting sick. I have lost almost 10 lbs, but I had a little more to start with this go around so no worries.

Matt has been AMAZING. I cannot explain how awesome my husband is, but God definitely gave me a wonderful partner. With 5 kids in the house (our 2 and 3 foster children) life is hectic, but he has held down the fort. He has helped clean, cook, and takes the kids to school every morning. Amazing.

The girls have really been sweet too. They love their little brother/sister so much already. They will randomy come up to me, lift up my shirt and kiss my belly.

Hannah, when I am changing or something will say "OH MOMMY!! You are getting Fatter!!!" Have to laugh at that one. Hannah is also my personal caretaker. When I am hanging over the toilet sick, she is ALWAYS in there to hold my hair back or pat my back. And really, when I am feeling very awful they will lay down with me and cause no trouble. So I am very thankful for my family.


I THINK i felt the baby move last week. I know it is extremely early, but I have felt that feeling before and it is unmistakable. The tiny little flutters. I was sitting down and my jeans are getting a bit snug and I felt it for a while. I am looking forward to really feeling him/her, and being able to let the girls feel those kicks.

Thats all for now. More on december 5th!
