Thankful x 3.

We are back from our Thanksgiving tour of family, and this year we had a little surprise that we brought with us...

Soon-to-be family of 5!


 Baby # 3!
16 weeks - Thanksgiving
I am so excited to have three children to be thankful for this Mother's Day!
Baby # 3 - EDD May 12th, 2013.

And it's making the holidays just a little bit more magical, exciting, and celebratory.

This pregnancy has been a little intense - plenty of nausea, vomiting, dizziness, heartburn, back aches, exhaustion, breathlessness, and tension headaches. But I am thankful firstly, for a healthy baby, and also that I'm feeling a little bit better as I am getting well into the second trimester. I hope things continue to look up from here.

And I am glad that we are finally sharing the news. We heard the heartbeat for the first time at 14 weeks, and wanted to tell our family in person, so we've been keeping it in for a long time. We got a positive pregnancy test on August 31st. (Although, since I started showing around 8 weeks, I don't think we fooled too many people).

Hope that you had a very happy Thanksgiving! Tonight, we are trimming the tree we chopped this weekend.
