Amazed

Just about everyone is in the "know" of our happy news. Our son turned 4 last Saturday so we put both boys in T-Shirts that said "I have a secret" on the front. The back said, "I'm going to be a Big Brother" Our M's shirt also said the word, "Again". Our siblings were all excited for us.

We've also told most of our closest friends. They too are very excited for us.

I've just been filled with so many "warm fuzzies" this past week as we've shared our news because it's been such a different reaction from our other two pregnancies. Not that people weren't happy for us but there were other circumstances in our lives during both of those times that I'm sure caused some concerns on whether or not it was the "right" time for us to be having a baby. But I know that the other pregnancies were at the "right" time because all things are on God's time...not ours.

I've just had so many warm hugs and sweet loving words it's just been great!

We had a 10 week ultra sound on Thursday. I am still in amazement over the miracle of life growing inside of me. The changes that there has been in 4 short weeks, the fact that Peanut is just 3.48 cm. long and I can see FINGERS and to be able to see the baby moving its arms and legs and opening its mouth....it's all just so cool! I have my first appointment with my mid-wife on Monday. We have been officially released from the specialist. YAY!!

Life has sure been keeping me on my toes the past couple of weeks. Commitments outside of the house, field trips and sports for the kids, homework, a new Bible study, (WITH HOMEWORK) L's bday party, and then there's the laundry and regular day to day mess that keeps piling up at home. Yesterday I was sure I was drowning. Thankfully, the woozies seem to have subsided but the sleepies are still there. They hit me hard around 5 o'clock after a day of mom/wife duties. Making for a very cranky wife for my poor husband and kids at times.

Fall is defiantly in the air. The cool crisp weather has been lovely. I want to go pick apples this weekend....between raindrops! In a few weeks we'll hop in the car for a drive up north a bit to see the beautiful trees. This is by far my most favorite time of year.

Hopefully, I can find some more time to write. I truly enjoy it but when there are so many other things that need to be done I have mommy guilt that I need to work, work, work rather than relax and take time for myself.

Blessings to you all....

Remember you are with child...so rest rest rest and the work can wait...do it in periods...or hire someone to do it for you...this is your critical time to be careful and pamper yourself. The next time I get pregnant Scott and I decided we would hire a housekeeper for the pregnancy and 1 year after baby was born...because honestly you are not wonder women and no one expects you to, being a mom is full time enough.
I;m so happy for you...take it easy...take a nap and rest.

Are we due on the same day? I guess I have been out of it a little.

That is so cute about the shirts! I love hearing how different people share the news. We just started really sharing ours too.

Keep resting up! Go momma go!!!!! :)

We're finally getting around to telling a few more people. It's still not common knowledge though but I guess it'll become obvious enough soon to those who aren't in the know.

(PS-I had to double check that you were in the States when I saw that you measured your fetus in cms not inches. You surprised me!)

When I was pregnant with number 3 someone told me about this web site. www.babycenter.com You give them your due date and they e-mail you every week with where you are in your pregnancy, how big the baby is, that sort of thing. Even tho I had already had 2 babies, it was still fun. You should check it out!

It was good to hear from you. I was beginning to wonder.
