Exciting News...

Many of you already know this (thanks to Parker), but I thought that I would officialy post the news on my blog (since I saw it on a couple of other blogs recently). I'M PREGNANT! Yes, we found out a few weeks ago and I've been so sick ever since. The joys of pregnancy! It's been a crazy few weeks. Tim & I were so excited to be pregnant with our 3rd child. We're still not sure that we can handle 3 children, but we are ready to try! About a week after I found out I was pregnant I started spotting & cramping, which is scary. I did an HCG blood test to determine if I miscarried. The blood tests came back normal. They determined that, so far, I was having a normal healthy pregnancy. We were not ready to share the news yet, but on Labor Day my family was at my house. We were all sitting around in our family room, when Parker told my Dad, "Mommy has a baby in her tummy." What?!? We told Payton & Parker, but never thought that they would tell anyone. It was pretty cute and funny! So, we were committed to telling the rest of our family and friends before Parker started spilling the news to everyone around. He did do the honors of telling a few more people! We really are excited and are glad that Parker slipped the news early. I am only 7 weeks pregnant. My due date is April 30th, which doesn't mean much, since both Payton and Parker were born 4 weeks early. So, I'm expecting a baby the end of March or beginning of April. (Honestly, I don't know what I'd do if I went full term...9 months...yuck!!) More than anything, I'm just hoping to have a healthy baby! Also, I'm excited that so many other people are pregnant right now as well. My Sister-In-Law, Mahina (Brady's wife) is due about the same time that I am, but I'm not very happy with her because she isn't even sick (yet)! No, I really would not wish anyone to be this sick. It's truly miserable. Thank goodness I have an AMAZING husband who has completely picked up my slack. He gets home from work and does dishes, makes dinner, takes care of the boys. You know, all the stuff I can't do right now. I'm so glad that he is putting up with me right now. I just hope that I can endure the next 6 weeks...get me to the 2nd trimester!!

OK, Brit, WOW! I just finished reading your blogs that I've missed since school started for me. Anna's story was wonderful and yes, you're right to enjoy every single moment! You are so lucky and I'm even luckier because I have a daughter who makes me so proud!
