Another Addition

What you were waiting for last week (if you're not on Facebook and didn't scroll down).

We're pregnant!!!

I'm not gonna lie...

11 weeks

11 weeks 3D

...I'm so excited!!

12 weeks

Excited, extremely grateful, and sometimes even a tiny bit scared.

But, I'm living on faith here. :)

16 weeks

And, let's face it, there's really nothing else I can do as it has occurred to me multiple times that none of this is in my hands.

But, I know this time things will be different!

I just know it.

It already has been!

This baby wasn't really a surprise, but kinda a "well alright then"!!

I was told by the doctor to wait before getting pregnant again after my miscarriage since they were worried about possible infection, but...apparently...I didn't wait.

It helped I saw and was told that nothing was left behind there from the miscarriage to "infect".

When my period didn't start for quite a few weeks, I didn't even want to take a test because, frankly, I just didn't want to know.

I finally gave in after stewing over it a while drove me crazy.

Because of my history, after I got the positive, I got a doctor's appointment right away.

 I hadn't had a period and just a miscarriage, so when I went in, I got an ultrasound (no pix, though, dang it) to see how far I was.

They measured me at 7 weeks and gave me a due date of...


I have to admit I was, and still am, very much relieved when at 7 weeks I saw just one little "gummy bear" because my twin pregnancy was really hard work.

I can tell I've been used to twins inside, though, because when I started feeling the baby move I kept thinking it wasn't moving enough.

It's moving plenty...just actually has room with no one else there to make it a crowd.

And, yes, my tummy poked out right weeks right away I looked like I did in the above picture at 12 weeks.

I guess it's true what they say about how with every pregnancy your tummy "gets bigger faster".

I'm sure it doesn't help that I literally just did this.

Happy to announce BABY #4!!!!!

PS: In three weeks, we'll find out the gender, and with the move and such I don't know how great I will be at updating after graduation, so...take a guess on our poll! :)
