A Heartbeat!

Most of you know that we got some very surprising news in early February that we were expecting.

I had been doing my best to see myself as pregnant but not necessarily as having a baby, because with my history of miscarriage (and my age) I knew there was a high chance of something going wrong.

That said, nothing seems to have gone wrong so far!  And yesterday, all four kids got to join their daddy and me at the doctor’s office and listen to the heartbeat.


There may have been just a few happy tears.

This baby thing might just be happening after all.  🙂

Which means we might have five children next fall. Five! Yowza!

This week, my horrible morning (and afternoon and evening) sickness seems to finally be coming under control, so I’ll try to post a bit more regularly again!

I’m also going to try to get the living room in order, start all my seeds, do more crafts, clean off the window seat and try a fabulous sounding healthy chocolate truffle recipe, but in all honesty I really don’t care! As long as I can keep us in healthy food, cuddle with my kiddos and not be too violently ill, I’m calling it good. 🙂

Fingers crossed…

  3. Praying for you! The motion sickness bands you can buy at the drugstore really helped my morning sickness.

  4. I used herbal red raspberry tea to stave off the queasiness.

    ❤ I think I'll always remember the thrill of hearing my kids little hearts beating for the first time. It's a little like getting a morse code message delivered from them to you: "Hey mommy! I'm doing great in here!"

    I missed this the first time you mentioned it, I think I looked at the post, thought “Oooh pretty” and then got distracted by a rampaging toddler.
    Good luck to you and your little walnut (I have a green olive here :).
