Surprise!


Friends, I have been keeping a big secret from you all... I am pregnant!   

It will be my first pregnancy but my 3rd child (my other 2 are adopted).  It was a complete surprise and shock to us since we were not supposed to be able to get pregnant (about 7 years ago we went through infertility treatments with no luck and then after that adopted 2 of the best kids in the world from Korea) .  It is a total miracle.   It will be my first experience with mothering a newborn since both my kids were over 8 months when they came home.  I am not going to lie to you, I am a little freaked out!!


   I am due April 7th (so that puts me at 18 weeks today). 


We are having our ultrasound on Nov 26th... hopefully baby will be cooperative so we can find out the gender!   Be sure to check out our facebook page next week for our pole to tell me if you think it will be a boy or a girl!

Also this week I will be adding a Baby section to our Show Off Your Stuff Party so, make sure you link up all your must-have baby tutorials and posts so I can get the low-down on what I will need!

I had horrible morning sickness my first trimester which is why posting was scarce in August and September... but I am feeling better now!

Congratulations!!! We adopted our oldest two kids because we hadn't been able to get pregnant. Then after 8 1/2 years of marriage I finally got pregnant with #3. It was a little weird being an experienced mom, but experiencing my first pregnancy. You'll do great! Now #4 is 8 months old. It only took us a couple months of trying to get pregnant with him. Good luck!
