We are all very excited and anxious to have another little one. For those of you who are questioning it...we were actually "trying" this time ;) We just got pregnant Right Away (which I guess in no shocker). We told the kiddos today. Kellen just ran around screeching like normal, but Makenna was very excited. She kept wanting to see the baby in my belly and seemed disappointed that my belly is still small. It was nice to have her call my belly small because even though I am only 9 weeks I feel huge already. I am certainly growing much quicker this pregnancy. They say that you show earlier with each pregnancy. This time around I believe them.
This pregnancy has so far been much more exhausting and nauseating that my previous 2. I don't know if each one is just going to get more and more challenging. Or maybe it just seems harder because I am chasing more on the outside now??? Either way, I have been wiped out. It has been a bit challenging being in the first trimester during the holidays...I feel like I have struggled to keep up. But life is finally slowing down and that is nice. My family is enduring my crazy, irrational moodiness and inability to cook a normal meal. I keep telling them it will get better and soon I will be able to make more than mac n cheese, sandwiches or cereal for them :)
Anyway, we are happy to share the news and excited to see what 2010 has in store.
