While You All Will be Sipping Champagne...

... I may be in the delivery room! Yup, we are expecting again and we are so excited! The official due date is January 2nd, and this time I may actually deliver close to the due date because it is ONE BABY! Once I got that positive test, Dan and I couldn't rest easy until we went to an ultrasound. My OB doc scheduled one for 7 weeks so we could verify it's only one baby. What a relief! I think twins could have been fun too but ever since my last whirl-wind pregnancy I wanted to experience a singleton pregnancy.

Baby at 11 weeks!

So far, all I really notice is being tired. I am over 12 weeks, so I'm almost into my 2nd trimester. I already have more energy than I did a couple weeks ago so I feel good! I didn't get sick with my last pregnancy (with multiples women are usually extra sick) so I knew I wouldn't feel sick with just one baby. I do feel like my belly is getting bigger already, which most women find with subsequent pregnancies. 

The girls will make great big sisters! Plus, when the baby is born they will be THREE and hopefully (?) "easier". (HA probably not, I heard 3 is harder than 2.) I hope we make it into January so we can have a January baby and not have ALL the kids in December. I'm sure by the time it's December I may say differently because I'll be uncomfortable, so don't hold me to that!

What would a blog post be without some fun pics?

All my aunts and uncles on my mom's side are in town for my 2nd cousin's wedding, so they finally got to the meet the girls. (Only my uncle David has met them, everyone else at least knows them through the blog.) We will have a little get-together at our house so it'll be fun. Also, Dan has been gone ALL WEEK for work so this weekend is long awaited! Hope all is well!


  1. Congratulations! I don't know if I have ever commented here, or it has been a long time, but we were in the March 2010 BBC birthclub.....and now we are Jan 2013 together too! Glad you are feeling good! I am too which is a big change from my first one!

  2. Congratulations! 3 is harder AND easier than 2 in some ways :) At 3, they'll be able to do more for themselves which is helpful with a new baby! I'm expecting my third baby in September and my two older ones will be 4 and 2 1/2 when the new baby is born. Should be interesting!

  3. Congratulations! What a blessing for such a beautiful family.

  4. Congratulations!!! That is great news! I enjoyed my singleton pregnancy so much. Our big kids had just turned 2 when baby girl was born, and I can see how 3 would be easier in ways. I hope you have a wonderful and uneventful pregnancy. :)

  5. wow! congratulations! hoping this pregnancy goes very well indeed!

  7. Congratulations on your pregnancy! I'm from the MBB on BBC, I love following your girls on your blog. They are beautiful little girls. I wish you the best for a safe and healthy pregnancy and delivery!
