Baby #3!

Well, we made it “official” by announcing it on Facebook, so I figure for those of you that I’m not friends with on FB but still read my blog – WE’RE PREGNANT!  Smile
Christmas 2011   BFP3 282
We also had an ultrasound today and got to see baby’s heartbeat!!  Seeing the heartbeat made me more excited and definitely made it feel real, finally.  The little heart was just beating away and we even got to hear it!  Best sound in the world, I tell ya.  Love it. 
The whole thing really came about in a funny way.  Judd and I decided we’d not try, but not prevent for a few months then start trying in Feb or March.  Well, that one month of not preventing did the trick! 
Two days before I got my positive test (I was pretty sure I was pregnant, but didn’t have the stick to prove it at that point.)  my sister and I were chatting on the phone like usual.  We hung up and said goodnight.  A few minutes later I get a text that says, “Call me for a second.”  When I called, all in one breath she said, “I have something to tell you…I’m pregnant.”  My mouth hit the floor like a rock.  I couldn’t believe she was pregnant!  She had just taken a test that night!  Obviously my first question was the personal one of “Were you trying?!” and she said, “No!” She blew my mind!  That was Friday night.
(Less than) Two days later, on Sunday morning, I got up early that morning to get ready for church and took a test.  I stared at it for a while but couldn’t see anything and as I went to throw it away I saw something.  There it was.  A faint, faint 2nd line.  I ran into the bedroom and woke Judd up and told him the news!  We were really excited!  I called Audra that afternoon and as we talked about Hannah trying to climb the stairs, I said, “Audra, I’m pregnant.”  to which she replied, “Shut up.  No you’re not.”  to which I said, “No, I really am.  I’m serious.”  Audra said, “Whatever Kacie.”  Finally she caught the seriousness in my voice when I said, “No, I really am pregnant! I took a test this morning!”  She laughed hysterically!  She thought I was making fun of her for blurting it out two nights ago!  Neither of us had any idea that the other was pregnant or entertaining the idea of getting pregnant!  It really is quite funny!
My due date is August 22, 2012.  I’m 6 weeks 5 days today.  We’re still really early, so PLEASE pray for a healthy pregnancy and healthy baby with continued growth!  I’ve felt pretty good so far.  I’m SO, so, so, so, so sleepy.  By 5pm, I have a headache because I’m so tired.  I’ve had some nausea, but it could definitely be worse.  So far everything is really tolerable.  I just hope I get some energy soon!
It boggles my mind that God has blessed us with another sweet baby!  Being a mom is one of the best things that has ever happened to me and I’m so blessed to be able to stay home with them.  I love them all…all three of them!  Let’s not even mention my wonderful husband!  HOW am I this blessed?!
