I'm expecting...

Yep, that means I am pregnant.

But we aren't telling the whole world, so if you read it here consider yourself the bearer of private information and don't go blabbing!

Anyway, went to the doctor yesterday. I measured 9 weeks...right on schedule...everything looks good. I go in for the Nuchal Ultrasound August 15th. We'll start telling people after that.

I've been sick but not nearly as sick as I was with Lacey which makes me almost certain this is a boy (and now I am REALLY wishing I had bought more gender neutral things.....). We aren't going to find out the gender this time around. Although cravings and adversions are the SAME EXACTLY as they were with lacey. Maybe I am having another girl and the Lord is blessing me with not being so sick this time. I hope so!

I weighed in at 95 1/2 pounds yesterday so now I am on a mission to gain some weight. I promptly went to Taco Bell and enjoyed some nachos and came home to DQ cake...then I felt sick. So don't expect that to happen to often. Anyway, that was what i weighed with lacey and I gained 35 pounds so I am not too worried...

Mike and I are excited and yes, we planned this. We know having 2 so close together will be tough, but we wanted them to be close to be good playmates! Plus I am so excited to have a newborn in the house again!!

Anyway, this may slightly turn into a pregnancy blog, so sorry if it does but I just need to get things off my chest that I love or hate about pregnancy so you are my audience.

I can try to post an ultrasound picture of the peanut (literally) but don't expect it too soon...

95 pounds!?! My goodness...I wish I had your "snap back to normal" genes in my family! I'm still over 140... and that's HUGE to me! :(
Glad you're not as sick this time!

What made you guys not want to find out the gender this time?

I think we just wanted to do something different with #2...plus since the baby will be in a pack n play in our room until our lease is up (end of april) we won't have a room to get ready or anything. If its a girl we are set, if its a boy...I have 3 little nephews so i am hoping for some hand me downs!

Yeah, those "snap back to normal" genes would be nice! I won't comment on being huge at 140 pounds! I don't know what I weigh, but it's probably over 140 pounds!

Good luck dear! I hope that you are feeling so much better so very soon.

I really want to not find out the gender next time too. Maybe we can support each other!

yeah, my doctor was asking me about my weight gain/loss at my appointment. When i told her it all came off in the first week she said "don't say that too loud around here!" I said "don't worry, I already learned that when I was given 'the look' as I was leaving the hospital...."
