The nausea grips me, and I swallow, pushing against it, willing it to leave me. Sometimes it is a mild thing, there, but not overtaking all my thoughts. I am expecting it to keep increasing. It did with my other 4. I could never hide a pregnancy, because I became sick early on. Yes, we are excited, and can’t wait to meet this new little one, July sometime, Lord willing!
A fun announcement I made up for family and friends. I didn’t mail many, simply because it’s soon time to send Christmas cards, but this was fun to do 🙂She did order a real baby for her birthday. But that was a few days before her birthday 🙂 These things take a little longer than that 🙂
The children are very excited! One of them wondered how exactly I know I’m having a baby. Um,Uh, (a bit of stuttering), son, after I had 4, I know.” Well, did you have an ultrasound?” I told him no .”Well then, you don’t know!” I sometimes choose to remain silent 🙂
The other son wondered if Dad knows. Yes, I believe he does 🙂
Jenna said she wants a boy. Then she said a girl. We will not be hoping for twins 🙂 I used to think that would be neat. That was before I knew how much work one baby is. Moms of multiples, you are amazing! 🙂
At any rate, I want to embrace this, even on the tough days. I know it will be so worth it!
Happy Thanksgiving! And if you insist on torturing yourself by shopping on Friday, I wish you well 😉
