Yep, the news is out. I'm pregnant!
I am about 9 weeks along, due approximately November 5th. (but I'm guessing the baby will come closer to Thanksgiving time because I was pretty late with my last two babies...)
Joseph and the new baby will be about 2 years apart. Perfect!
But, I would appreciate your prayers because I have been feeling pretty yucky these days. Don't get me wrong, I am super-excited about this new little life growing inside me. But morning-sickness is not my friend. I've been nauseous almost every day, all day long. And I've got this weird "excessive-salivation" thing going on. Some pregnant women get this symptom, but not many. Basically, I have to spit all the time. It's gross.
I am pretty much in survival mode at this point. I wake up and count down the hours till I can go to bed again. The hubby and kids have been very understanding and sweet. They have accepted the fact that the house is not gonna be clean for awhile (unless they do it! haha) and I must confess, we've watched way too many videos lately.
I've had to cut back on my time spent working on my etsy shop and blog. I am hoping and praying that I will be back to my old self soon so I can get some stuff done!
But I have to remember that although I may not feel like I am getting anything done, I am doing a whole heck of a lot inside my body!! Major organs are being formed! I must keep things in perspective...
I also just weaned Joseph. Last night was the first night without him nursing before bed. I am sad about that. :( He did great. I knew he was ready. It was me who wasn't ready. But, it was time. So, that was a big change as well.
When I re-charge my camera batteries, I will take a belly shot for you all to see. I am amazed at how big my belly is already! I feel like I look like I'm six months pregnant! No kidding... But, I need to remember that this is my fifth child! (in seven years no less!)
So, that's what's been going on with me for the past two months. It feels good to let the cat out of the bag. I don't like keeping secrets. But, I must admit, it has been a sweet time with the Lord and Clint, hiding this little treasure in my heart.
So, thanks so much everyone for your sweet and encouraging comments on my last post. It means so much!!! Especially in this world we live in where it seems as though everybody's saying five kids is too many, it's so nice to hear all those wonderful words and celebration of life!! Every life matters!!! And I can't wait to see what this little one will become and how God will use him/or/her. I am honored that He's blessed me with another little person to take care of.
Have a great Thursday,
