We’re pregnant…keep calm and carry on October 14, 2008

Filed under: General — mothersandothers @ 4:13 pm

This my friends, out of all possible ways to announce our good news, is not my first choice. Sending you a text message even would probably have seemed more personal than this. Sorry. After much thought, debate, interviewing of others, prayer, and practice, we decided that our kids will indeed (hopefully) benefit from having more genetic allies on the planet.

That being said, I’m sicker than someone who simultaneously has malaria, that mysterious bird flu, and a massive hangover, while sailing through the Bermuda Triangle during winter with a bundle of rotting animal (you choose) entrails hanging just in front of their nose…with nine months to go. It’s a rough ride for me to say the least. It’s a rough ride for my fantastically capable husband and kids who’ve watched me fill ziploc after ziploc of not-so-nice stuff.

I share this with you so that you might lift us up in prayer. Typically I’m in and out of the hospital to be rehydrated a number of times. Sadly, I missed my Gram’s 80th a week or so ago for this reason and my favorite Girls’ Weekend.

I also share this with you to let you know there may be a break in my blogging, e-mailing, crafting, card-sending, birthday-remembering, etc.

We will however, be lifted up by hearing your voices so please keep in touch with us!!!!

    Let me be the first to congratulate you via your blog (makes me feel quite techy)! But, this is why I don’t go to your blog too often… every time I do I end up on the computer an hour longer than I planned and in tears! The part about sending Wyatt off to kinder got me crying. First, thinking about how I’ve watched Wyatt grow since he was younger than Brayden and then thinking that that will be me with Bray before I know it. And of course, I’ll be calling you for the “How did you do it?” conversation and moral support. I love you! How blessed your new little bundle will be to call you mommy πŸ™‚

Being sick is no fun though, but you know it is worth it in the end. Just keep your mind on the goal-a beautiful, healthy baby:) Oh, yah-Wyatt going to kinder was so sad. He is so big. Congrats!!!

    Oh, girl! I’m hurting with you! I will be praying it is over soon and well worth every wretching, cramping, nauseous moment. Make sure that hubby of yours rubs your feet once in a while, huh? Can’t hug you for real, but know you’re being hugged from about 1100 miles away! Come visit us when you can–we got a house!!! πŸ™‚
