Good News

I'm Pregnant with Baby #3! I'm not announcing it officially yet, but I figured I could blog about it. We found out on Sunday when I took a test to rule it out (remember last month when I thought I was, but wasn't). I was shocked at first. Then I was scared, then terrified. But after having 2 days to digest it, I'm happy. It's been uneventful so far. which kinda of makes me think that I might not be.. but when 3 tests show "PREGNANT" you tend to think you are. The last 2 times I was already experiencing morning sickness. I hate that term, morning sickness, it's not even close to the truth. It should be called All Day Everyday Until The Baby is Born, Gut Wrenching, Blood Curdling, Hair Pulling Upchuck Disease. But that's my opinion. But again, none of that right now. I'm extremely tired, that's all I feel. I'm only 5 weeks so I have plenty of time to develop those more severe symptoms, but I'm enjoying the uneventfulness right now.

I couldn't even tell Tim, I just showed him the test. His eyes got big and he got a big smile on his face. I started crying.. I told him that this wasn't happy. My baby is still a baby. I mean truly. When baby boo is born, they will probably be in the same size clothes. That is if I carry full term. That's another thing that scares me. I'm 0 for 2 right now when it comes to carrying a baby to term. Nate was born early b/c of preaclampsia. We were prepared for preaclampsia with Abby, but she came for reasons still unknown. I guess 3rd times a charm, right? There was a lot going on when I was pregnant with Abby. Tim lost his job right after we found out I was pregnant. Then my car was repoed and our house was foreclosed on. We were victims of the economic crisis. We are now in a better place. We both work from home and it's a stable job with great pay and benefits. We have the house that we've always wanted. We have 2 vehicles which we are going to trade in for 1 van. Since we work for the same employer, we don't see the need to have 2 vehicles anymore.

We are in a much better place now than we were. We will take it day to day and embrace whatever happens.
