It's true! We're expecting baby number 2! Graham is pretty excited. Actually, he's totally clueless.
Presenting baby #2! Due December 17th. Our little Christmas baby...
On to the frequently asked questions:
1. How far along are you?
16 weeks today. (That translates to about a week short of 4 months.) Hurray!
2. Was this baby planned?
Yes, this baby was planned. (In other words, no, this baby was not an "oops.") We felt very blessed that he/she came along so quickly. Graham was not quite so cooperative in his day.
3. Are you crazy?
No. Let me just put this out there: Just because you don't want another baby right now doesn't mean we can't. :) Graham is so easy that the idea of another baby just didn't scare us. But that's just us. The worst that can happen is we have an easy toddler and a hard baby.
4. How far apart will they be?
If Baby #2 comes on his/her due date, they will be just under 14 months apart. I'm crossing my fingers that #2 comes 2 weeks early. 3 would be acceptable. Those last couple weeks of pregnancy are not fun.
5. Are you going to find out what it is?
We already know it's human. Or monkey. One of the two. And in 3 weeks we will find out if it's a girl or a boy!
6. Are you hoping for a girl this time?
Christian is, but I'm impartial. A girl would be fun, because we would have one of each and would break the one-gender per family trend (so far none of our siblings have been able to produce one of each). At the same time, how fun would it be for Budders to have a little brother so close in age?? So cute.
7. Were you sick?
Yeah. Not too bad. Just yucky feeling and tired. And working two jobs. You can call me super woman, but in reality I did what I had to. (This was the reason I stopped running. Just couldn't cut it.)
So the latest news is that I'm officially on bedrest for a few weeks. I'm going to write a separate post about this. It will follow shortly.
On a side note, I'd ask that everyone say a special prayer tonight for all your friends who are trying to conceive but have been having trouble. I have lots of friends in this boat right now and my thoughts are constantly on them. I love you guys and you are in my prayers!!
