Surprise! To all of us! Hahaha! We are pregnant with Baby number 3!!!! We are so excited for our little growing family! We found out early July we were pregnant and still can't believe it! Currently I am 15 weeks along, and we still don't know the baby's gender. My next appointment is October 4th and I'm hoping my Doctor will squeeze in an ultrasound then =)
I will admit, this baby was a little happy surprise, I mean, we know how the human body works obviously so I probably sound mildly stupid saying I was shocked.. But, honestly, I was. I have ALWAYS dreamt of being married at a very young age, having kids right away (done and done) and I knew I wanted a big family. I was sure of at least 5 I would say. Than we had 2.... and as fun and as amazing it is, it can also be super hard and trying at times. That being said, we had agreed to disagree on waiting a while for baby number three. Not going to get into detail, but God had another plan for us and we are now pregnant.
How I feel: Let's be real, I'm a stay at home mom of a 3 year old and a one year old. Also known as dealing with Mr. attitude and Mr. super attached. As you probably already know, I do nothing all day , just sit around pampering myself and doing as I please. I have all the time in the world to get everything I need to get done at my time and pleasure. My house is spotless.....
If you have two little tots, whether you work or stay home, you know that is so not true. I'm pretty much always yelling it feels like, changing a diaper, getting juice for one or the other and always picking up after their mess. I AM STRESSED OUT ALL DAY LONG. I wish I had time to blog, or heck even think a thought to myself. It has been a trying time and I'm not afraid to admit that. I do however know that this is just A small portion of my life. It will pass, and I will miss it someday. That's the crazy thing about motherhood. It's so freaking hard, but in the end, I know it's worth it and I will miss my baby wanting me all day everyday.
Back to baby #3
We found out, literally at about three weeks. I just knew. I took a test and the line was oh so faint. My heart dropped when I saw the faint line. The last time I saw just a faint line on a pregnancy test, it was because my HCG levels were low and we would soon be miscarrying our twins. I sent my best friend a picture of it and she said that was a positive test. David came home that day and I asked him : " so, babe, I'm planning out your birthday, how would you like to spend it at the hospital with me delivering our 3rd baby?!" He was so happy and excited! He was like " Aw man! I knew something was up!". I had looked online to calculate the baby's due date based on my last period, according to it I would be due March 11,2017.
We scheduled an appointment to be seen and we got our first ultrasound. It was too soon to be able to see anything. We tried again two weeks later... Again it was too soon. I was devastated.
one week passed, and at 7 weeks we went back , and there was a tiny little dot inside of the yolk sac! I was pregnant! We were told to come back in a week again to see if we could see a heart beat.
Again, success! Praise God. After our miscarriage two years ago, I always fear the worst until I see a heart beating on that monitor.
We decided to tell our families than, and they were all so excited and happy for us!
Baby Number 3, we are so excited to have you in our lives! I have never doubted how much I love you since I found out about you, and we are all so excited to meet you !
Baby McD 3 coming March 22,2017.
