Zoe, Zoe! Oh my stars!! I just talked to your dad!! How are you FEEEEELING?
That’s a comment I received last night from my aunt. I might as well let the rest of you in on the secret, too. You see, there’s a little more that I should have added to my last post. While that whole post was true, I should also tell you that baby number 3 will be joining us in April. We are very excited!
But I’ll be more excited in about 8 weeks because you know what a baby in my gut means? Sick, sick, sick. I don’t throw up or anything but I am constantly extremely nauseous for the first trimester. Awful. I’ve taken up semi-permanent residence on the couch. I lose interest in all things food related. I feel like a terrible wife/mom. Brad comes home, cleans up the kitchen from the day, goes grocery shopping, and takes care of the place in general. Not that I have completely given up but when he’s here, I’m sacked out trying to will my stomach to settle. Brad’s a real trooper about it and I’m so thankful. He never complains!
So, for the next weeks I’ll be laying here “growing our baby”, as Brad says. And I’ll be saying goodbye to this:
as it will soon balloon. Funny that just two weeks ago, I was carrying a watermelon in from the garden and I told Brad, “This is what I look like when I’m 9 months pregnant!”
Little did we know!
P.S. Thanks for all of your lovely comments on my last post. It’s funny that internet friends whom I’ve never actually met will miss me. But I’ll miss you guys, too, so I guess that’s just as funny!
