Thank you for your sweet and encouraging comments on our announcement yesterday.
|Thank you Dollar Store for your cheap but accurate tests!|
We are just as excited as our kids (their reaction is here if you haven't seen it yet!) I am always amazed at parents who think that by having another baby, they are depriving their current children of love and attention. Our kids pray, plead, and hound us to have more, and are so excited to get one. There is honestly nothing better we can give our children than the gift of a sibling!
Morning sickness has started, and based on my past 5 pregnancies I know it's only going to get worse over the next few weeks. Please excuse me if I'm grouchy and irrational. I'm pretty useless in the 1st and 3rd trimesters, but I'm a gem in the 2nd. Promise!
I have swollen lymph nodes, a cold sore, acne, am exhausted and could I possibly be showing at 7 weeks???? Whoever says pregnancy is beautiful is blinder than a bat. The baby is beautiful, and worth it all, but the pregnancy I could do without :)
All that complaining out of the way, we are truly very excited for this new little member of our family, and we know we have been blessed by God more than we deserve. We are so thankful!!
