It has been ages since I’ve blogged – we’ve had a lot going on down here in Texas, with the arrival of Little Man and all – who is awesome, BTW (more on him later). Over the next couple weeks, I’ll try to write a couple of updates on him and other important happenings.
But, I’ll start the updating with the awesome news that Sarah alluded to about a month ago. Chris and I found out in late January that we are pregnant. And a week ago we heard the heart beat on the Doppler, and officially “graduated” to the 2nd trimester!!
To say that we were surprised, shocked even, would be the understatement of the century!! This was the very last thing we expected to discover while doing the 6am feeding of then three month old Little Man.
I am thrilled to report that we are all doing really well. Amazingly well. I somehow managed to escape the worst of first trimester – a little nausea, a little dizzy, definitely extra tired, but that’s about it. Even better, I’ve been able to stay on all my meds, so the thyroid and MS are in check. I feel great, how cool is that?
Chris noted after our first OB appointment that he thinks the doc’s biggest concern is that I am over 35. Given all that comprises my health, we had a good laugh at that. BTW, her “concern” has yielded my new favorite phrase…I have “advanced maternal age.” Yeah me!! I’m old!! That would explain all the grays that I wish I had colored back in January!
Oh, I suppose you want a due date…we’re looking at the last week of September or very early October. And yes, we’ll find out boy or girl on May 18; and yes, we’ll tell, name included, ’cause this isn’t a democracy – if you don’t like the name choice, too bad 😉
