Okay it's time to let the cat out...

of the bag. I am having baby number three. Yes, That's right. I'm 39 years old and my 40th birthday will be a blend between a shower and a birthday party. I am having a baby! I must admit some of you already knew about it. I've been slinking around facebook, and blog comments sections, leaking information. Today I am making it official. I saw my little offspring swimming around in my belly, and then I knew it was truly happening. Up until this moment I've been teeter tottering between denial and acceptance. I truly thought I was finish with the baby stuff, but I must take the blame because I didn't take any action to make myself done. Now I will get to smell the sweet breath of newborn once again. I'll also have sore nipples since I haven't nursed in 7 years. I'll be getting my waddle on, my hair will grow think and long, and then feel like it's falling out once baby comes. I'm already eating a lot, which is weird because I don't remember being this hungry during pregnancy ever. Right now I am not experiencing much discomfort besides feeling bloating and constipation (I know TMI). I can also feel the baby move in my belly, but no one else can feel it yet. I am somewhere between 12 - 14 weeks. I get an ultrasound next to determine the exact date, plus to check for "advanced maternal age" stuff. Yes, that's what she told me today. I am considered "advanced maternal age." Nobody cares that I can do the stanky leg, I'm considered an advance old hag having a baby, LOL!!! It's all good I am 31 in real age years, ha!

Since I have two girls of course everyone is giving me the ole' "you're gonna have a boy" jive. I don't know what I'm gonna have, but I will be happy either way. I see the benefits in having a boy and I see the benefits in having a girl. We'll just wait and see. I'll let you know next month what they say.

Meanwhile, here's some pics of me with the first two babies. Oh man! I just thought of something...does that mean my shoe size is going to go up yet another 1/2 size.

I'm wishing you a healthy and happy pregnancy! that's such great news! I would ignore those docs with the "advance maternal age" stuff. if you feel good and the baby is alright, that's what matters!

@ Eb & Nicaeli, I guess it really must be in the bloggy water.

Thanks for all the special blessings and well-wishing.

@Ms. Behaving, you are not supposed to wish a boy on me--but since you have one I guess it must be a good thing you are wishing on me. (you would know)

Jewelry Rockstar said...

@ Ms. Bar B. oh I forgot you do blankies. When I find I what it is I'll order one in the right color. The girls are making one too, on the sewing machine.

Hi, congrats!!!
I know how you feel, I had 8 and 1/2 years between my third and my fourth babies and he arrived when I was 37 and what a shock it was!!!! Especially the lack of sleep and the cracked nipples!! Horrid but worth it! :)
