Jordyn wore this shirt when we announced that Baby #2 was on the way, so it was only fitting that Jayla got to wear it too!
Apparently I am the 1% that gets pregnant while on the pill! Ha! So ... while this may have not been in our plans, it clearly was in God's plan for us, and we are excited to welcome baby #3. Three years ago at this time we wondered if we would ever be parents - who would have guessed that three years later I would be pregnant with baby #3!?
We have only known for about a week and a half, and I had an ultrasound on Thursday to determine a due date, since we had no idea how far along I was. (Long story short ... I was never "normal" on the pill for the last 9 months, so it wasn't odd for me to have a month with nothing. However, I decided something didn't seem right this last time so I took a pregnancy test, and ... Surprise! And - the nurse and doctor shared with me that if you didn't take this type of pill at the exact. same. time. every. day. it was not effective. Yep, I took it 1-2 hours late some days - definitely not effective!)
Are we nervous? Stressed? Worried? Scared? Wondering how this is going to go? ABSOLUTELY! Jordyn and Jayla are 17 1/2 months apart, and that is exactly what Jayla and the new baby will be. Just think ... we'll have 3 in high school at the same time and 3 in the college at the same time. Yikes.
Plans are changing at our house ... our 5 year anniversary trip has been put on hold (good thing we hadn't booked it yet), we need to start searching for a vehicle that will hold 3 (yes 3!) carseats, and I'm trying to prepare for myself for what pregnancy does to my body. That alone stresses me out.
I am about 8 weeks along and feel just fine. I wasn't sick with my first two pregnancies either.
We have already heard the baby's heartbeat and seen the baby on the ultrasound. I have a good guess as to what the baby is already. :) We will find out on May 23 if we are having girl #3 or boy #1!
I'm pretty sure none of you were expecting to read this news! :) Ha!
