"We should have another baby" revisited

Back in September, I wrote a post entitled, "We should have another baby."  Jonathan has continued to talk about this idea off and on since then.

One day in February, as we were all in the car running errands, Jonathan once again told me that we should have another baby.  This time I answered, "Well, that’s up to Heavenly Father."  Jonathan then decided to go right to the source–he said a prayer and asked Heavenly Father to send another baby to our family!  Little did he know that one was already on its way.

That’s right, this is an official announcement.  :)  As of today, the baby is 13 weeks along, with an approximate due date of October 5.  And if I’m lucky, this transition into the second trimester will bring me some relief from the ever present all-day sickness of the first (nothing too bad, but it’s still no fun when the thought of any and every food makes you feel ill).  :)

By the way, though Jonathan has almost always spoken about a little girl baby, 3 weeks ago he randomly started singing something like, "We should have another baby, we should have another boy."  Then he decided to go up to his room and pick out a blanket for the new baby boy.  :)

    P.S. Ginger saved my life with my last pregnancy (use ginger snaps)…and carrots. Thought you might like to know. It helps with the nausea.

  7. Thank you all. :) So far, so good… just another 25 or so weeks to go. :)

  8. 25 weeks? am i going to be at your house by then?

  9. Um… Well, you’ll come when I’m 24 weeks along, and leave when I’m 31 weeks. So, you’ll be here when I’m 25 weeks along, but not when the baby is born (around 40ish weeks).
