We are thrilled to announce that we are expecting baby number five. For months now the kids have been praying that I would have a baby girl and I couldn’t wait to tell them when we finally found out I was expecting; of course the girl part can not be for certain.
Some things I have noticed about your fifth pregnancy.
- You just realize people think you are crazy. (Some people for the first time ask, “So how many do you plan on having?”. Most people say nothing; usually the fourth child already made them realize your craziness).
- You show very soon! (With Abel I don’t think I even had the slightest bump until 17 weeks, this time around I noticed one a little after 10).
- There is less time to rest. ( I remember with my first two or three pregnancy we still had about a two-hour nap time every day; I would lay on the couch the full two hours).
- You still have to make dinner ( A make shift dinner for a small family works, but even when I was feeling very sick, all the kids still wanted a full dinner every night).
Thankfully I am starting to feel a little better. I am beyond thankful that God has given me a new life to carry. I look forward to meeting him or her.
