The Secret Is Out!

We've been keeping a secret, but it's time to tell the world!

It's true, it's true! We are SO excited to announce that we are expecting baby #3! The official due date is April 25th, which makes me 12 weeks along. We are so excited and can't wait to welcome this little baby into our family! We made that video right after we found out we were pregnant and that is how we shared the exciting news with our immediate families (making them promise to keep it a secret with us for a little bit longer). It was fun to hear their reactions as it clicked what we were trying to tell them. :)

Sweet pictures of the little one from our appointment today!! How cool is technology!! :)

We found out we were pregnant when I was just barely 4 weeks along and it has not been an easy 8 weeks. I had pretty easy pregnancies with the two boys. Barely ever got even the slightest bit sick with Kaden, had heartburn but even that was on the mild side. With Dylan I felt icky more often than with Kaden, but it was only occasionally at nights and never anything severe. The heartburn with Dylan was way worse than with Kaden though. This one I have been super sick/queasy ALL day long EVERY single day. I luckily have never thrown up, but have had a few occasions when I had to run to the bathroom thinking I for sure was going to. I have felt, quite often, that I would love to throw up because maybe it would offer a little relief, but at the same time, who really wants to throw up. :) However, the past week I have been feeling ever so slightly better and any better is a welcome relief. I have had moments here and there in the past week where I feel pretty decent and even when I am feeling sick, the severity seems to be getting better. So YAY!! I honestly don't know how you other women who have it worse off than I have had it can handle it. Especially when you have other kids (it's so hard to be mom when all you feel like doing is laying very still and not moving all day long!!). Props to all the women out there!! :) I'm excited to start feeling better and start enjoying the pregnancy a little more with the added relief. But honestly, I can't complain. I'm carrying a child! That alone is just the coolest thing and it never gets old thinking about that miracle. I feel incredibly grateful that the baby is doing well and that I am, overall, doing good too.

Kaden and Dylan are excited about the "baby in mommy's belly"! Kaden understands what is going on for the most part and likes to put his ear on my belly and tell me that he can hear the baby crying. haha. Dylan likes to copy whatever Kaden is doing or saying about the baby. They both like to say hi to the baby by talking to my belly. It's very cute! I can't wait for the baby to get bigger and for them to be able to feel it moving inside of me.
