You Know Your Pregnant If........

You know your pregnant if at 10:30 at night you are enjoying and I do mean enjoying a bowl of cottage cheese with ranch flavored fishy crackers swimming in it and a very tall glass of orange juice. And yes, I did ask Dave to go to market to pick up those items for me last night. Just to note this is the first time I have ever asked Dave to go to the store to get me food to feed a craving in all my times of being pregnant. So, this is the official announcement, I am pregnant. This is our third and I am sure to many of you this is crazy, and at times this is crazy to me but never the less we are excited. I am 11 weeks, sick sick sick, and already showing. I show early because I carry so low. I have not thrown up yet but I sure wish I could because i think I would feel better. The kids are being so patient with me and Dave is always the best! We will be finding out if the baby is a boy or girl, I can't stand the unknown! My sister is pregnant just a month ahead of me and she is one of those that likes the surprise, I could never wait that long. Having a third brings about a whole new set of items to think about. We need a bigger car, uuuggg!!! We will now be an odd numbered family, who will be the one sitting alone on all the Disney Land rides? That is my biggest question. :-) How will Henry and Jetta do? Henry I think will be splendid and Jetta well, I think we will have some attention issues. I am not quite sure how this will affect my ability to do my calling, pretty sure the Bishop will not release me, which is good because as overwhelming as primary pres. is I am starting to love it and especially the children. I have amazing counselors so I am not worried about a thing. Oh, I plum forgot.... My due date is Oct 30th. Not to excited about a halloween baby but my other two have come early by about a week so I am not to worried. Please be patient with my posts and lack thereof. It is on the bottom of my to do list. I will do my best to keep it coming! :-)

I never made Alex go out for craving stuff during my first pregnancy either. Who knows with our next kids though! And congrats! Jetta is always welcome to come over and play with Ollie (well, with the toys) if she needs some extra attention. :)

I am so excited for you! My first was Oct 24, it is a GREAT birthday time of year. I have to take the Halloween down sometimes to make it feel more "birthday-ish" but it is so fun. I hear you with the cravings! I have never had them so strong, and sometimes I wonder if my will isn't just weaker because I spend all day fighting my will-powered children. And by-the-way you guys totally introduced me to cottage cheese and ranch crackers...still a fav sometimes. And I totally hear you about not waiting to find out the gender, we could NEVER wait, plus it makes it seem so much more real to me. And lastly, I hear you about the car. I have no idea what kind of car, am I doomed to be a mini-van mom for affordability? Okay, so fun, sorry for the long comment!

Congratulations! I'm sorry you're so sick. I wish you were here so I could take your kids for awhile. I loved having an October baby! I must be an awful wife, I make John go out for cravings ALL the time, not just when I'm prego. And...I totally think about the Disneyland rides thing too when it comes to having kids! So funny. Anyway, I hope you start feeling better. I'm so excited for you!
