Oh, Baby!

That's right! I am twelve weeks pregnant. August 28, 2009, will be very special because we will be welcoming our second baby into our family.
We didn't expect to get pregnant so quickly, so we are really excited. Clomid baby #2!
Since we haven't told many people until now, it still in some ways does not even seem real that I'm pregnant. I'm SO happy to finally get the word out. My heart remains burdened for my friends who are waiting to get pregnant. I know that the LORD is faithful, and our prayers will one day be answered. I can't wait until each of them have their much deserved turn, and I will be the most EXCITED person anyone has ever seen!
Jason and I have always wanted to have our kids close together in age. Of course, when we actually had a baby and reality hit, I thought there is no way! Zach and this little one will be 21 months apart. I like the difference because right now Zach is still a baby to me even though he is independent in so many ways. By August he will be even more independent. Jason wanted our kids to be even closer in age. He's crazy!
We heard the heartbeat last week, and everything looks great. We find out in seven weeks the sex of our baby. It really does not seem that far away to me. When we found out with Zach we were having a boy, I was thrilled, but thought, "What do I know about boys!?"
Now I would love to have all boys because Zach is so much fun. If we find out we're having a girl, it will definitely be a mind switch from rough and tumble and balls everywhere and from everything blue, green, brown, and orange. I can't wait to find out what GOD wants us to have!
And if you even know how protective Jason is of Zach, I can't imagine how he would be with a little girl. I don't know if it's possible!
Overall I love being pregnant. The early stage is the hardest for me (poor Jason gets the real sick me...ha!), but hopefully I'm almost over it. I am taking medication to help with nausea and queasiness, but I have felt worse than when I was pregnant with Zach. It's crazy to me, so I don't know if this means anything or not. ; ) I've learned to be productive when I feel well and slow down and eat crackers when I'm not. It's all worth it because of what's coming in August!
I had a C-Section with Zach because he was breech at 39 weeks. The doctor even tried an external version to get him to turn around. No luck! My hospital does not do VBACs (vaginal birth after delivery), so the date will actually be one week before (unless GOD has other plans), but for now this is my due date.
I am SO happy and looking forward to having the spring and summer with Zach to play outside and just focus on him before the baby comes. I'm also thankful the weather will be warm when he or she arrives.
Thanks for sharing in our good news!

Congrats!! When we found out Dawson was a boy I thought what would I do with a boy as my family has almost all girls but he has been so fun then when we had a girl my in-laws thought what will we do with a girl as they have all boys on their side until Ansley and Ireland. Aug. is a great month for a baby. My Ansley is a Aug. baby. My mom had a very hard time getting pregnant with me and my sister. It took her 5 years with me and some clomid and with my little sister it took her another 10 yrs. of trying. My parents prayed desperately for a baby and they never gave up that God would give them one. People use to ask them all the time why they waited so far between babies and they always said we didn't God did. It was his plan for us.

SO EXCITED FOR YOU!!! I loved reading your post...not only reading about your fun news but all of your thoughts on babies close together, all boys, burdened for friends who have not yet been blessed with children....Flint wants our kids to be very close together, too! I have always thought I would have all boys...and LOVE IT! Just watch, we will have a girl, and that will be wonderful, too!!! I know God knows best!!!

Congrats again! I am so happy for you and I will be praying for your health health, stamina, and a healthy baby!
