I know no one really reads this. And I know that those who do already know that we are expecting baby #3 (right?), but it only seems right to briefly document how this pregnancy is going...
I'll be 16 weeks on Wednesday.
The doc is 90% sure it's a girl.
We have a name but aren't sharing.
I chose this name. I had to make a deal with Russ to get it, though. Let's just say that IF we have a #4, and IF that baby happens to also be a girl...her name is already chosen as well. And I don't like it!
I absolutely hate the first trimester. I think our house is still recovering from 2 months of complete neglect (while I took unreasonably long naps and spent my waking hours trying not to vomit whilst keeping my children happy). Anyone want to come mop my floors and clean my bathrooms?
Owen is super excited to have another sister and he thinks we should name her Owen.
My pants started feeling too tight the week before I even got a positive pregnancy test. I look more like 22 weeks than 16 this time around. I suppose this is normal for an already stretched out uterus and I should just embrace it, yes?
I am getting really excited to have another one. I'm not in denial of how hard it will be with 3 at home, but I'm just excited to work through those hard first few months and get our new normal routine down and snuggle with my new baby!!!
I am convinced that God knows we can't handle another Elsie (aka non-sleeper/super temperamental/feisty as all heck, etc). If we are going to be having more than 3, this better be an easy baby! (And I should add in that Elsie has really mellowed out in the last 3 months...it was the first 15 months of her life that were ridiculous.)
Russ is still in denial. He'll get over it. :)
