Expecting!!!!

Here's what we found out 11/13/07!
Lindsay is proud to announce that she will be a BIG SISTER...
July 2008!
We announced to our families over Thanksgiving but we wanted to wait a bit longer before we "outted" our big surprise on the Blog! This is why I've been MIA for a bit. I've been dealing with some pretty fierce morning sickness and it's much worse than anything I had with Lindsay. I've been way too tired at night to blog but I'm hoping that we're coming through the other side of it. We're very excited about our new little one on the way. We're being followed weekly throughout the first trimester since I am considered high risk due to my past history (ectopic pregnancy in 2005) and my age (ha! over 35 puhleez). Anyway, the bonus to that is we have gotten to see our precious little one's heartbeat already and have heard it as well. We'll have a new ultrasound picture to post later in the week.
Let me also give props to my wonderful husband who has been really picking up my slack and taking care of me, Lindsay, the pets and the house! I know he totally feels like a single mom about now! Thank you honey, I love you!

CONGRATULATIONS Chris. You are going to LOVE having a second child. Oh, it's just so great. I'm so sorry to hear that you've been sicker this time. Perhaps that means baby # 2 will be a brother for little Lindsay! Oh, I"m just so happy for you. We'll be praying that the weeks to come will bring morning sickness relief and a healthy developing baby!!!

Chris, It will fly by, so be prepared now to take as many pictures as you can. And your pregnancy (once you get past the morning sickness) will fly by as well. With Olivia I was basking in the joys of pregnancy, enjoying every ounce of pampering anyone had to offer. With Zachary...I had to remind myself I was pregnancy. Josh would walk in and I'd be pulling the lawn mower out of the garage....Hello...should you be mowing grass 8 months pregnant...

Enjoy every last second of it!!!

OH MY GOSH!!! Congrats! I am so excited for you guys! Maybe it will be a boy to even out the house. I was really sick with Luke (#2). Kade and Alex were a breeze. Maybe it will pass soon. I hope you are blessed with a happy healthy pregnancy. Congrats again!

CONGRATULATIONS! So sorry you've been dealing with morning sickness, regular sickness, and being so tired. I can DEFINITELY relate to that! Speaking of relating...I bet our husbands could compare notes about now ; )

I thought you were going to wait longer. :) Glad you felt well enough to put a post up. I hope the morning sickness gets better.

CONGRATULATIONS! I, too, hope you're over the morning sickness soon and you get to enjoy the rest of the pregnancy.

Should I act surprised?! LOL!
Congrats!!!!!! Hope the morning sickness goes away ASAP for you and Mike both. :) I know Linds will love having a baby in the house. I'm pushing for a boy to even things out too, but know that if it's a girl she will be thankful to get Lindsay's wardrobe! The whole family here send their congratulations too. Looking forward to seeing the u/s pic soon...

Oh my gosh! That is such wonderful news! And congrats on the heartbeat. That must give you a little more confidence. I'm sorry about the morning sickness, but I know you are probably not to bothered to have it if it means you are pregnant. What a beautiful holiday season you must be having. I hope it continues just as strong.
And I got the stocking from Pottery barn Kids. They monogram it for you as well. Lots of cute ones there.
I will continue to check on and hope for you. This is such wonderful news. Thanks for sharing!
