Another Addition!

If you are friends with me on Facebook, you already know our good news.  We are expecting again!  Baby #3 is due the same time Josiah was due - the exact same date actually (June 8)!  I'm really hoping this baby decides to come a few days before his birthday, because I really want my kids to have their own special day.  Of course, we are very excited and a little nervous too about being outnumbered by kids! 

Thomas is very excited, although doesn't completely understand what is going on.  He thinks the baby should be here now.  We were talking about the baby earlier this week and he said, "Mama, you just pretending."  When he does refer to the baby he always says, "she".  We don't have a preference either way, but I would be thrilled for the boys to have a sister. 

While baby is doing fine, I feel awful.  I think the worst part is the fatigue.  Nausea was something I dealt with in the other two pregnancies (and still feel with this one), but the fatigue this time around is overwhelming.  I honestly have never felt this tired in my life.  Right now, it is all I can do to take care of my boys, cook dinner, and do the laundry.  Thankfully, the boys still take a nap every afternoon which allows me to nap as well.  Any other ladies experience such fatigue with third pregnancies? 

I do want to post some pictures from our trip, but I have to find the energy to go through 400 pictures.  Hopefully, in the next week or two, I'll get them up.  Don't expect much activity on the blog until the 2nd trimester comes.

Hi, I came over through Meggan's blog. I just wanted to say "Congrats" on your new little one! :o) What a blessing!

I feel your pain about the fatigue. My pregnancy with Lainee was exhausting. I don't know if it was because it was the 3rd or because it was a girl. ;-) I also had iron-deficiency anemia which made matters worse. You have two little ones to keep up with which makes a huge difference, as well. Hang in there and enjoy naptime. The other thing about the 3rd pregnancy is that it seemed to fly by, so enjoy the precious part of growing a new little one when you can. :-) Feel better!

Congratulations on baby #3!

Great!! Congratulations!!! I had a lot of fatigue with Shiphrah's pregnancy too, but not near as much with Moriah. Thank God for afternoon naps!! Amen!! If you have a LazyBoy recliner, definitely use it if you start tossing and turning in the bed (get a comfy neck pillow too). And don't be too proud (like me) to ask for help.
