Is anyone else as shocked as I am?? Seriously, it took quite awhile for the big news to sink in. We had always planned on having a third child, but hadn't even talked about starting to try again. After all, Easton isn't even 14 months old yet.
But, as it usually is, babies have their own schedule. The last couple months have definitely been a roller coaster ride. I didn't get sick with Abbi at all. With Easton, I got sick, but it wasn't too bad, and it seems like it didn't last very long. But this time around, it has been a different story. And although I haven't been throwing up very much, it's the nausea that really gets me. Even now, at 13 weeks, I'm still sick. And it seems like it's been the worst in the last couple weeks. I'm only hoping that it will start to subside now.
And talk about being tired! I have a hard time keeping my eyes open past 10pm anymore, and I used to be up until at least midnight or 1am every morning before. And I've even found 20-30 minutes to lay down during the day because I just can't make it through.
I won't lie - it took me a little while to get used to the idea of having another baby right now. My life has been so crazy and hectic lately, and I'm still wondering how I'm going to do it all when the baby gets here. But now that it has really sunk in, and now that it all feels real, I am so excited and happy to meet this little soul that is being entrusted to our family. I look at my children every day, and I feel so blessed. I am so excited for this new baby to join us and for the excitement that is to come!!
