Dane got to tell his daddy about the baby.
Skip ahead a few months and our prayers were answered. Dane was 6 months old when I got pregnant. The baby is due April 25, 2013. So, yes, they will be 15 months apart. I know this will be a challenge but if you know me at all you know I like challenges.
Ultimately we are just so grateful that we were able to conceive so quickly and that Dane will have a brother or sister so close in age. Now our prayers are just focused on having a healthy, full-term, pregnancy. We thank our Heavenly Father daily for this blessing.
As far as how I'm feeling. Hungry pretty much sums it up. Even before I found out I was pregnant the hunger was incredible. I couldn't get enough cheese! This worries me a little considering I'm starting off about 5-6 lbs heavier than when I got prego with Dane (never fully reached that pre-pregnancy weight. Bummer). I'm sure it will even off when I hit the sick stage of my pregnancy. And the fact that I'm still breastfeeding Dane is adding to the extreme hunger. I'm not exactly sure what to do about breastfeeding now. Should I start weaning him now? So, if I'm not full I start to feel nauseated. I haven't vomited...yet. Just feel like it non stop.
Here is our little peanut at 8weeks 5days
Funny (not really) story- The ultrasound tech thought she saw two babies at first. She confirmed there is only one. I about died.
And my 5 week picture
On the plus side, I haven't packed up all my maternity clothes yet;-) Keep us in your prayers!
