Big Plans for November

This past weekend, Phil was away on a church retreat. When he returned, I made him a nice dinner of Moroccan Spiced Chicken and had a little present prepared for him. I gave him a box with five candy bars inside. They were: a Skor bar, Sugar Daddy, Sugar Babies, a Baby Ruth and Milk Duds. He immediately looked at me and said, "You're pregnant aren't you?!" I then replied with a "Yep." We celebrated our exciting news together and we're both looking forward to baby #2!

It's funny, because the past two months I felt like I was pregnant but ended up not being pregnant. This month, I don't feel pregnant but I am. We are very excited that Taeya will have a sibling regardless of whether it's a boy or a girl. We'll almost definitely find out the gender of the baby when we're able to. Although I haven't seen a doctor yet, based on pregnancy calculators on the computer, this baby will be due around November 8th. Since I had a C-section with Taeya, I'll definitely have to have another C-Section as there are no doctor's or hospitals that do V-BACs around here. I'm fine with that because my C-Section last time was very uncomplicated.

We'll be praying for a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby in the end. I am only five weeks along but want to share our exciting news with our friends and family so that they can offer their support no matter what happens.

I will try to pick up my blogging a bit more than I have been lately. I've been busy with Taeya, tutoring and running my house. In the evenings, Phil has had the computer more frequently than he used to and I just haven't made the time to blog on a regular basis. I will TRY to do a better job of it and hopefully, some of my readers will come back and leave comments once again. :)

blogging can come in waves. I go through periods where I just dont wanna! But it is so fun to look back on it all.

Such wonderful news. Hope you start feeling pregnant soon... in a GOOD way. Like glowing or something. :)

Katie said...

OK, I'm a little confused about the candy bars....is it just the names (daddy, babies, milk) or is there some deeper meaning?? :)

I'm so excited for you guys. A new baby is so much fun. I was watching Hannah and Bekah play together today and I was thinking that in 2 more years your kids will be ready to really play together too. It is fun to watch.

Yeah! Excited for you! My first two c-sections were so smooth with no complications and recovery was fast too. Not so easy for the third one. Hope your pregnancy goes well and we look forward to hearing more through blog posts.
