Funny Thing

I was so gung-ho about exercising when I first joined the gym, I was going 4-5 times a week... but now I can't even get the strength up to go once in the past few weeks. I have morning sickness so bad I can barely get up in the morning.

Obviously, I'm pregnant. Only about 7 weeks, so not a huge deal, and I haven't "officially announced" in anywhere yet (I told my parents and my husband's parents, a few close friends, and my co-workers... because running to the bathroom every hour on the hour to dry heavy into the toilet is odd).

The thing is: I don't really care to tell anyone other than that. I don't want to make a big Facebook announcement.

What would it say?

"We have two kids already - but we're having another... because we're crazy!"

And that's how I feel about it. I alternate between being overjoyed and crying on the way to work in the car. I realize it's just all of my crazy emotions overflowing. But I'm scared to start over.

I know we were trying for this, and we already made the decision and now it's happening... but it's all real now. Scary.


  1. First of all - Congratulations!!! I'm sorry you are having some negative feelings about it. I have 2 beautiful girls, but I grew up in a family of 3 kids and I always wanted a 3rd. Unfortunately my husband and I went through a difficult time in our marriage after my 2nd child and it didn't seem like the best idea. He had a vasectomy (I cried in the waiting room). However, we got through our rough spell and now we have been married 20 years. We thought briefly about having a third child, but decided against it. I sometime wonder what he/she would have been like. I don't mean to make this all about me - you are going to feel however you feel and I don't mean to diminish that, but I hope that you can start feeling awesome about it. And if anybody asks you why you are having another child - tell them that 3 kids taking care of you in your old age is better than 2 - you are playing the numbers. LOL. Hope you don't mind my humor. Again, Congratulations!

  2. First off... I just want to tell you Congrats! as well. That's wonderful news even though the reality is sinking in now. But the pregnancy is still new and so is the hormones that comes with it. If you feel like you have given the news to the people that count, then don't worry about a FB announcement.

    I'll be honest... you have two kiddos right now, and they are older - so it won't be as hard to add the 3rd one. I have 3 kids... ages 15, 11 and 6. We started over with the last one and totally forgot what it was like... but now that he's 6 years old, I couldn't imagine life without his little butt. We almost had a 4th kiddo... when my 6 year old was just 2. I was scared then, of having two kids so close in age. Unfortunately I miscarried and then we decided it was best to have one of us get fixed (me!).

    I'm sure you know this is a blessing and probably the nausea doesn't help right now. And who cares what others think about you having a 3rd child, their not paying your bills. Lol. And dang it, your married and this is something you all wanted. Smile... it will get better --- the nausea and you'll be finding out the sex soon to shop. :)

  3. Congratulations!! You are obviously entitled to have whatever feelings you feel. But no one has the right to judge whether you have a baby or not. Enjoy growing that little lady...or fella. It is scary, but you have each other!!

  4. Families come in all shapes and sizes and age ranges. Don't worry about what anyone else thinks. Do you.

  5. Wow! I can't even imagine what you are going through! It must be such a roller coaster of emotions sweety! Hugs xoxo


    Enjoy the ride....and bask in all the well wishes and attention you can get!


  7. I'm way late. But it's ALWAYS scary…doesn't matter how "ready" you are for it. I know this is going to be a great experience for you and your growing family. Text me if you still got my number and need to be talked off a ledge. :)

  8. Congrats. I'm preggo also, but with my first (Jan '16). Keep us updated.
