A few weeks ago, Jeremy and I found out that I am pregnant. I know, right?!
We were not trying to get pregnant. In fact, we were pretty surprised by this little addition. Shocked even.
We’d thought for a long time that we would most likely have one more baby, but I didn’t want to get pregnant until our 2nd born was 3 or more preferably 4. (Because he makes me a little cooky.) It took us a year of planning and counting and trying to get pregnant with him. That added to our shock of this news. It just happened so fast and so unexpectedly.
I have had a really hard time wrapping my brain around all this. We have officially outgrown our car and our dining room table in one fell swoop. I’m stuck on those two issues right now. That and the fact that my precious vacation is also out the window. I was really looking forward to our 10 year wedding anniversary next July. We were planning a cruise with our best friends’ the Metcalfes. I was planning to lose the last of my pesky 10 lbs by then and I was so thrilled at the idea of getting away from life and kids for 5 whole days with a wonderful celebration. Poof. It’s gone. 😦 Sad mommy….
How am I feeling? I’m crazy nauseous and I get car sick…ugh….and can I tell you about the junk food I’m craving? Not sweet stuff though…all savory. I’m in bed almost as soon as my kids go to bed too. Man…I can’t wait till the 1st trimester is over so I will feel like less of an alien.
Don’t I sound cheery?
I know I’m being a bit rotten and self-absorbed, but I just have to whine a little. It’s our own fault and I know that we will be blessed and happy in the long run. I have lots of time for vacations, right? I guess we can celebrate the big 15 with a bang.
So pardon me as I pick myself up off the floor. I’m still in shock. My consolation is that this will be it for us. No more kiddos after this. I should try to soak that up instead of being a booger. I’m definitely going to go buy some new and sassy maternity clothes just to make myself feel better. Beware Jeremy….beware….
Oh by the way, we have told our boys. Cooper, the eldest, was thrilled to the kilt and can hardly wait. He’s already planning out how he’ll help me. He asked if he could be the first person to hold the baby when it comes out. I said “no, I get to be the first, you can be third”. Chase is oblivious and said something along the lines of “Chasey baby!”…yikes. Jeremy would do cartwheels if he could.
Here’s how we announced it to our family. 😀
Cooper was being very uncooperative at this point in the photo shoot. He’s actually way more excited than he looks in this pic.
So there you have it; big news from the Nevil Family.
