The Deets..

Now that all my family know and the news is seeping out.
It is safe to say... Man... I am freakin exhausted!
I'm about 10 1/2 weeks. Due July 29th. But really hopin for a baby in the "teens" of the month or just wait till August. For some reason I loathe the "twenties" of the month.
Things have been going just as expected and exactly like the other pregnancies.
Morning sickness(puking). Extreme fatigue. Odd smells. A bit moody. Etc.
But I have to say... it's been about 3 years since I did this last.. So I had a rude awakening.
Lukily I have some good days thrown in with the bad days. And some halfsies days that keep it nice and balanced. Ha.

I was kind of hesitant telling the families.. and announcing it at all. I'm not quite sure I want to know what people think of us having our 3rd. Most are openly happy while some obviously have some "Really?? okay....." reactions. But it has been something that I needed to work on anyway. Don't care what people think right? There is a reason we are our own little family.

On a lighter and happier note:
Beck and Arli are so very excited! Since Beck was so little when Arli was born it will be fun to see him this old with a newborn around. I'm pretty sure he's going to be an amazing big brother.. again. Of course Beck is pullin for a boy, while Arli insists on getting a sister. One of them is going to be dissapointed. Arli is just as excited as Beck. Since she is an avid "mother" to her babies around here, that was expected. That will be fun/perhaps scary to see.

I'm so thankful! And beggars can't be choosers, so I'm not bitter about another July baby. Although, I have to admit, I'm only sad that Spring and Summer will be passing me by taking their perfect running weather with them. Rude!

But really, We are really excited. And had been wanting this.. so now we just need to get into full gear of getting ready for bebe#3.
But most of that might have to wait until I get my energy back...

Worst mom ever award goes to me... right here... Yup.. layin in my bed. In my comfy pants.

Nakina, Congrats!!! that is super exciting! And you got em all in a nice row ..! We'll experience the big jump to 3 kids together haha.

Kim Denison said...

Dude, Give those rude people the bird. I think you should keep going... get all your babies out by the time your 25 or 26! You're going to be the hot mom.. I can't wait til Beck's friends are old enough to call you Hot. haha. But seriously, what do people expect you to do.. have Beck and Arli close together and then wait 4 or 5 years for your next? C'mon maan. You rock at this whole Mom thing, Michelle.. I should really take notes. Love ya

If you wait to deliver one more day after you're due - it won't be in the twenties - but on the 30th - my birthday! A great day to be born!
Good-luck to you with this pregnancy.
