Time for me to share my news with you all that we are indeed expecting a new bundle of joy to our family this spring! I'm pregnant....I think. No, I mean I really am but this third time must be a charm because I've had nearly zero symptoms which is awesome. I had pretty good, typical pregnancies with the boys except the morning sickness increased with Cameron and was no fun. Guess it was a good thing we bought the new mom-mobile this past spring. I also couldn't have planned it more perfectly for a teacher, I'll be delivering in March with my FMLA leave taking me until the end of the year, that means nearly six solid months of baby cuddles! Yes, I wrote this post last September, but I already had my mind made up I think.
How are the boys handling it?
They boys have responded well to the idea. My oldest is being super sweet and such the charmer as the older sibling planning for things in the future. For the record, he wants another brother, but believes this one's a girl. We'll see how intuitive he is. Cameron is still just going with the flow and shows no realization of about how his world will be rocked in a few months.
Are you going to find out the sex?
This is my own million dollar question since I was team green last time, but the answer is yes. Mostly because I've already endured 13 weeks of "this one's going to be your girl" comments along with some "we'll love it even if it is a boy" --um, no shit you will. I just can't bare hearing them for another 27 weeks. Perhaps we'll do some sort of trendy reveal though, I mean any reason to get cake right? I really could not care either way, but it will be nice to know and get the final bedroom/nursery all prepared since you know having babies is all about the decorating ;)
Other than that, I think I'm mostly just am just grasping to hang on to this feeling since it's my last (that's a whole other post). It's so weird how much I love my babies, but man, nothing ever really compares to the first. I get all emotional thinking about those "firsts" experiences. At the same time I'm sorta glad this one isn't nearly as emotionally taxing on me. Whew, those were some anxiety ridden times back in the day, now I feel I can really enjoy it more.
