well, here we are, at it again for one last go (right…? YES). yes, we are pregnant again! i am now 14 weeks, and somehow my 13 week post slipped away from me. i have a feeling that might happen more than once with this baby.
brian and i had always wanted a third baby but we didn’t anticipate it coming so soon. we were a bit scared, shocked, surprised and ok i will admit it, freaked out. bastian and poppy are three years apart and that’s manageable, but a month shy of a two year age gap kind of freaks me out. i don’t know how moms have their kids 12-18 months apart… that gives me hives just thinking about it haha. the more this baby has set in the less freaked out i get. i mean you just have to roll with the punches!
i found out about this pregnancy right before a lake trip brian and i were taking with our friends. MAJOR BUMMER! haha. i knew though that if i didn’t take a test, had a LOT of fun on the lake trip, and then found out i was pregnant a week or so later, i would be mad at myself. so like any selfless mother would do (haha really?) i took a test the night before we left. i really couldn’t tell if i saw a line or if my eyes were playing tricks on me. the next morning i made brian go and grab a digital test to be extra sure. we waited for what seemed like the longest two minutes ever. well, it said “PREGNANT” and we were both shocked. i was still breastfeeding poppy, and i had only had ONE period since poppy was born. well i guess it was meant to be and my body said, now or never lady. well, i spent our lake trip weekend sipping on crappy NA beers and eating lots of M&Ms.
we recently told bastian about the new baby and he seems pretty excited. any time poppy sits on my he tells her she’s sitting on mommy’s baby. he again, thinks the baby’s name should be baby applesauce. so we will think about it 😉 poppy of course doesn’t have a clue and probably won’t until the baby is here. she loves her baby doll and stuffed animals, but i don’t anticipate that being the same love for a real crying, mom stealing, new brother or sister haha.
i really hope to keep up on my blog through out this pregnancy like i did for my first two, mainly because i love to go back and read about what i felt like, looked like and how excited i was. so, basically this is my diary that you guys can read if you want!
ps. below is a pic from 13 weeks. i took the pic but then never got around making post.
