I'm Baaaack...

At least I think and hope so.  Sorry to have disappeared on you the past few weeks - I haven't been feeling up to par.  In case you haven't noticed the new green box on the right side sharing our news - we are expecting our surprise #3 baby late September this year!!!  Middle of January when our first ice storm hit, I made the Hubs run to the pharmacy and get a test - he thinks it's funny now, but he wasn't happy since he hadn't even gone into work because of the roads.  But I was late and am never late (and I needed to know or else go crazy), 30 secs after taking the test I was hollering for him to come in the bathroom and see the results himself.  I might have hit him as he came in too - we weren't planning on trying for another until later this year, and he has said that #3 is it.

We decided to keep the news mum from even our families, especially after our past with miscarriages.  We had our first appt the end of February and am happy to report that the baby looks wonderful, measuring right on, the heartbeat was 171 bpms (we're hoping this could indicate a *boy* as both girls HB's were much lower).  Dr says that once the HB is over 120 bpm, there is 1/2 of 1% chance of a miscarriage.   The Dr said that he/she's due date is 9.25.11, but because of my past with gestational diabetes and having larger babies they'll induce a week early.

So this means lots of changes will be happening around the Casa in the next 6 months.  The girls' will be sharing the top bedroom.  We're hoping to be able to do some small construction on the 2nd floor bedrooms, and make the now baby girls' bedroom a master.  New flooring.  Plus new room themes for the kiddo's.  Lots and lots to do but am looking forward to the changes.
