He's right!
I am pregnant!
Not sure it has completely set in yet, except for the fact that I have been exhausted and nauseous for the past several weeks. This is a major reason that I haven't been doing much blogging lately.
I'm a little over 9 weeks
Due date is Aug. 19th, my mom's birthday!!!
Had first ultrasound yesterday and all looks good
Thank goodness for naps - I usually take one when M does.
We get to find out the sex of the baby in the next 2 1/2 months.
Rob and I both think it's going to be a boy.
I hope to be getting some energy back soon. The first trimester can be quite exhausting. We feel so blessed and fortunate to be having another child. God is good!
As a side note, I found a work around for the problem that I was having uploading photos to blogger:
I googled the problem and this link popped up: Photo Upload Problem - Known Issue
For now, I'm able to upload photos in the HTML tab. It's a known issue that Blogger is having and they are working on. I wanted to share this in case any of you were having similar issues.
Happy day!

Oh Heidi - come on! What a fab way to start the year ?
So unbelievable! I think it's GREAT for little Maximus to have a little bro or sis, but i tell you, do listen to your body and take those rests, for i know it can be a strenuous time of mummy!! Have a cozy and rstful weekend, i'll drink a glas of champagne in your hour ;)

Ohhh! Happy for you. What a wonderful thing! You are blessed. Have a happy less nauseated day and rest. (I can still remember that feeling, many years to you.) We will all need to vote. I'll guess girl. 50% chance of guessing correctly.

Another blessing coming into the world, how special. I am so happy for you. You know, I never knew the sex of my children until they were born, and I was overjoyed with each of them. Maximus is going to be a big brother, yaaaaay! Get plenty of rest, and take care of yourself, dear one.

WHAT?!? How did I miss the big news?!? YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Congratulations, my friend, to you and your husband and Maxi does Kooky feel about this? ;) Two against one is certainly not a good deal for him now, is it? Maybe it's time for Kooky to have a brother or sister too. ;)

Oh, I am simply delighted for you, Heidi. I wish you so many blessings, love.
