It's a girl!

Around October of last year Jeff and I started talking about growing our family. I met with our midwife and she recommended that we start to try. It took us, what felt like a century to get pregnant with Caleb and she believed that it could take even longer to get pregnant with our next. So with that info we started... and it didn't take very long.

When I found out that I was pregnant, shock came over me! I looked at Caleb and said we got a bad test (because he totally understood me... right?). Then I took another one, positive again. Tears, laughter, shock, goosebumps came over me. I texted Jeff and told him it was a 911 and that he needed to call me. I never use that term so in seconds I got a call. Told him the news and he was just as shocked. I had to double check that he was still on the phone. That night when he came home it was giggles and tears. The Lord sure has a plan for us, and waiting for number two was not part of it.

When it came to telling our family and friends it was not as elaborate as it was with Caleb. I was deathly sick, constantly feeling ill. I thought I was dying several times. So it was a matter of some calls and the news was out. We made the appointment with my midwife and she was a little surprised to see us so soon. My doctors office now can do a blood test at 9 weeks and we can find out what our little baby is at 10 weeks. So when I got the call from my favorite nurse Nicole and she told me it was a girl, screaming happened! I was sooooooo excited! Called Jeff and my sweet hubby said I just hope she is as beautiful as her momma (LOVE HIM!).

The sad thing is with me being so sick, absolutely zero belly pictures have been taken, we didn't start talking about her name till recently and her nursery was not at all planned. But I have gone 5 weeks without getting ill and I am in full gear! Room is planned (will post about that later), name is 98% decided on (hint... it is a biblical name) and a belly picture was taken this week. So her scrapbook album will be a little thinner then Caleb's but I will make up for it with many kisses!

She is due on July 5th! But my midwife said I will most likely need to be induced in late June, due to some complication I had with Caleb. My amniotic fluid is less then the normal and my pelvic will not move. So she will be measured every week starting June 1st. So our goal is to have her room done and Caleb's 2nd Birthday pretty much taken care of (besides food). I am actually hoping she comes in late June, that way we have a big enough gap between the kids birthdays (thinking about parties in the future... I am crazy like that!)
