Well, we are officially insane..

Why? Becuase we are having a 3rd kid! AHHHHHhhh. That's right, I am pregnant. 11 1/2 weeks. My official due date Nov. 4th, but since I have to have a c-section, the baby will be here the end of October. It sounded like a good idea to have 3 kids, but the moment I took the test, I have been mostly terrified. I try not to focus on the idea that we are going to have a 3 1/2 year old, 22 month old and a newborn or the fact that by the time I am done nursing this one, I will have been nursing, pregnant, or both (without a break) for about 5 1/2 years.

We told Macy yesterday and I don't think she fully understands but she seems happy. I am been feeling good, although there were a couple weeks at the beginning that I felt awlful. The doctor says everything looks good and I have had an ultrasound and got to hear the heartbeat. I had great pregnancies with Macy and Charlie, so please pray that we have a healthy pregnancy and baby this time around as well.

We are excited, mostly terrified, but we are excited!

Wow, I'm glad I checked your blog! Congrats!! I will be praying for you--and yes you are insane! :) I always wanted to have several kids, but now I think that by the time I start to have kids, and then I don't want them too close together for the insanity factor, I may only end up with a couple. Keep me updated!!

Oops, I published before I finished writing. :) As I was saying...

Congratulations. My sisters and I are about the same ages apart and I really like having siblings so close in age. I hope the pregnancy continues to go well!
