Let's Make This Official...

The word is out, as is my very early belly. I'm pregnant! WAHOO! I'm only 8 1/2 weeks or so (making me due March 12th, Ryan's birthday!), but we saw a heart beat on Thursday so I'm finally breathing a little easier. People are already asking my if I'm pregnant because I'm starting to show already. If there is one thing my body knows how to do in pregnancy its make a belly! So far the pregnancy has been a little rough, just lovely "morning sickness" which is a total lie, its all day, but hey. So I apologize for my nasty house, my lack of energy and lack of pretty much everything except tv watching and laying on the couch, there is a lot of that going on. I feel bad that my kids are pretty much left to their own devices most days, but so far they are surviving. Thanks for those of you who have rescued them on occasion so they can actually see walls other than our own. I was going to post the ultrasound picture, but I think I moved when he took the shot and you can't actually see the baby in the print out, whoops. We told the kids and Beth is beyond excited. James keeps trying to see what we are talking about, to no avail. They both say its a baby sister, and this week the baby's name is Ella. I guess we'll see if they are right. Wish me luck! I've been wanting this for a long time and now i'm getting nervous how this 3 kid thing works...prayers would be appreciated! :)

I'm so excited for you Diane! I know this is something you have really wanted and after much tribulation, it's here! YAY for you!
I can't believe people have asked you if you are prego! You NEVER ask that! You don't look any different to me. How is it possible that you go running at the crack of dawn and you feel so sick and pregnant? Wow! You are my inspiration! Congrats again! You will be in our prayers. Love you much!

Congratulations!! I am amazed at how good you are with exercising even when you feel so sick. What a trooper! I guess you're training to be a mom of 3. Lots of running involved. ;)

I am so excited for you---I know you have been impatiently waiting:) I think the first few months with 3 is tricky, but I survived:) Mostly because of the lack of sleep from the newborn and Maddie having to be to preschool before 9, right when baby needed to nurse. Our kids ages are pretty similar I had 3 under 4 years old. I hear that once you handle 3 you can handle any more that come along. MOstly because right now there is a kid for each parent---once you learn how to juggle with more, it becomes 2nd nature:)
