The Cat's Out of The Bag


Katie announced in school, during music, that her mommy has a baby in her belly!
She's right, I do! 


This is when she announced it to our family. 
It was Marcus's birthday, September 1st. 
We were about to sing and she said, "I'm gonna be a big sister!"
They weren't sure if they should take her seriously or not.
One time she announced the same thing in Sam's and it wasn't true at the time! Maybe she's just a prophet?!

Anyway, we are thrilled, and shocked, and optimistic!
I am 10 weeks along. And due to 2 miscarriages in the past, I have been to the doctor a lot!
We have seen a strong heartbeat and our next sonogram is on Tuesday.

I am BEYOND exhausted! 
 That is why I have barely been blogging. Sometimes sitting at the computer at typing sounds equivalent to climbing a mountain! I have been taking progesterone and I think that's the cause of the extra tiredness...that and I am 38 1/2 and pregnant! Holy Cow!

It's funny, before we were married, Marcus and I agreed that we wanted to be "young" parents! I even said "I will not have a baby after 31! That's my cut off!" 
God had different plans, and I think they are better! 

We would appreciate any prayers for a healthy baby!

Yay! So happy for you and your family! Lots of prayers and good thoughts being sent. My best survival tips for #2 are breath right strips (for sleep!) and help when you can get it with #1. It goes SO fast since you're not as focused. Enjoy!!

Oh Dina I am OVERJOYED for you guys. Genuinely so happy.

I always read but I suck at commenting.

I always hope to hear this news from you. When I saw the post title I thought 'hey they must have got a cat', I love cats, but a baby is much better news!!

Praying for a healthy pregnancy and baby.

Mallorie said...

HOW HOW HOW did I miss this?!?!?! :-) :-) :-) Congratulations!!! Now going to catch up on everything else I've missed!

Mallorie said...

OH! And the other day we were on Skype with my parents and EC ran into the frame and loudly said "BABY! In mommy's belly, BABY!" And pointed to it. Needless to say my mother screamed and jumped up and down, my dad was like, really? And all the while I was just laughing. I am SO not pregnant. I still think my parents don't believe me ;-)
