We Heard the Heartbeat Today!

Yes, baby #3 is on its way! Jesse and I were so happy to hear this baby's little heartbeat at the doctor's today. I'm 8 weeks along, which makes the due date October 2. 

Some of you have asked, why haven't you been blogging lately? So kind of you to ask, and here's the reason why...when I'm pregnant, I get super sick. It's called Hyperemesis, When I was pregnant with Maddie, I was hospitalized for a week because I lost so much weight and was dehydrated. This time I'm in bed for most of the day, I can't do any of my "normal" Mommy jobs, but I am keeping myself hydrated. Therefore, I haven't been taking pictures and blogging.

I'm so thankful for Jesse. He is such an attentive husband, caring for me, the kids, and the house. He's AMAZING. We're also so grateful to our church who are providing meals. Friends have been helping out with taking care of the girls. We're so blessed.

Speaking of the girls, Madison and Savannah are THRILLED. They keep kissing the baby and ask, "Can we see it today?" 

If you think about it, you can pray for a healthy baby, my quick recovery of getting back to being Mommy (no more nausea), and strength for Jesse as he multitasks. 
Thanks!

I'm super happy for you guys! And I'll pray for you! I remember the endless nausea and vomiting all too well, and the long, long days of simple survival. From this side of my pregnancy days, I can assure you that it is all worth it! Hang in there! (I'm sure I don't have to ask, but have you tried Zofran? It helped me some...)
