Not a post that I really expected to be writing! My wife just found out the other day that she is expecting again! This will be baby #3 (or 8, depending on how we’re counting…and if you’ve read my other posts) and I’ve found it very comical that in the same week that we found out this news this picture began surfacing on Facebook – rather fiting I thought.
Liz and I have talked about the possibility of a third child for a while, but never really but any deep thought into, I guess you could say. We were happy with our two girls and were just gonna leave it at that. Well, we got a surprise!
Things are still very early. My wife will go to the doctor this Tuesday for an ultrasound and some bloodwork. She will just be 6 weeks at this point, and yes, everyone knows. I know that goes against everything – tradition, logic, etc. – but we’ve never been good at keeping secrets and we’ve always wanted to prayers and support of everyone around us due to the problems we’ve had in the past.
So all of that has started again as well – the shots, the medications, and of course the worry. Days already seem to be creeping by. We are still in a bit of shock, but our brains are running wide open with things too.
I know each pregnancy is different, but this one is a bit more different for us because we have two other kids now and our oldest has a little better idea of what is going on. She was only 11 months old when we got surprised with her sister. It seems her brain has been running too fast since we told her as well. When is the baby coming has already been asked a couple hundred times in the last few days! It has been sweet though hearing here talk about, “when my other sister gets here”.
I haven’t been able to convince her of the possibility that it could be a little brother!
