We're Expecting!

Baby Staples #3 is on his/her way! We are so excited! I am currently 15 weeks prego and due September 5th! In about 4 weeks we will find out if we are having a boy or girl...always exciting! Jacob is adorable with this pregnancy...he recognizes my belly and constantly tells me I am growing BIG! I am showing a lot early with this baby then my other two...did you find this true with your subsequent pregnancies? Jacob loves looking at the App on my phone that shows what the baby looks like at his/her current stage and has wanted us to read the book Angel in the Waters about a million times. "Thats what our baby looks like mama!" So sweet. Baker has no idea, but I am sure he will become more aware soon!

This pregnancy has been my most difficult one thus far. I had to be placed on progesterone with this little guy (more of that story to come later) so I am not sure if that made my symptoms worse. 1st-I am so tired..which is true with all pregnancies...but maybe with two active boys running around I am feeling it more. There has been little to NO housework being done around here:(. Morning sickness, or ALL DAY SICKNESS is still with me:(. Somedays are better then others and I truly feel like I am on the up swing of things...but seriously the throwing up is no fun at all! I have also had several other viral infections which has made life just a little more fun...right! Exercise...what is that?!? I have felt like doing absolutely nothing and can feel myself getting more out of shape by the minute.

But enough of the complaining! I feel truly blessed to have this little one with us and cannot wait to meet him/her! For some reason I am most excited to meet this little one. Baker will be a little over 2 when this baby makes his/her appearance and I am yearning for that little newborn baby again! God is SO GOOD!

Seriously...having kids is so much fun!!!

So happy for you guys!!! I would say that some of my friend have had to go on that medicine and their pregnancy symptoms increased for sure....but so did mine with twins.. :) Maybe???? You never know, maybe one was hiding during the first ultrasound! :)

God bless you guys, your family is beautiful!!

I am so excited for this newest Staples baby! I have to say, you are so modest when it comes to your amazing mom and homemaking skills--here you have been super sick and your house is STILL cleaner and cozier than most in the state! You amaze me!

Andrea said...

Congratulations, Kari! What happy news! What is the app that you have?
It's always so fun to share the joy with your children!

Kari said...

Thanks everyone!

Andrea- The app is from baby center...I went to babycenter.com and got it from there. The app has some good things for sure, like showing what your little baby looks like...but some stuff you can just take it or leave it!

So exciting!! My third pregnancy was probably my most difficult too. I didn't have to take any progesterone, but I was wearing maternity clothes all the time and was on 10 weeks along! With my first two, I didn't wear them until at least 20 weeks! I was wiped out, but didn't have morning sickness (Praise God!), but my hormone level was incredibly high the entire pregnancy. I know it is with any pregnancy, but with Naomi it was seriously hard to keep myself together. Maybe it is a little girl....

Ditto on the 3rd pregnancy being most difficult. Maybe it keeps getting worse. I'm not planning to find out;) Hope you start to feel better soon. Do you have to stay on progesterone?
