Big update on me!

Hi ladies! Sorry I once again have been MIA lately. I had quite a bit going on last week and I need to make an effort to catch up around here big time. First of all, in terms of that job that DH was being considered for, that is a no go. They were going ot fly us out right as the company put a hiring freeze through the end of the fiscal year. Even though it would have been a great opporrtunity career-wise, we are both relieved because it would have been a huge change and so many loose ends to tie.

Second of all. . . Look what I got today:

Yeah, uh wasn't expecting that. I totally POAS because I was cleaning the bathroom cabinet and found one that I had missed. Figures it was 10 minutes after DH left for work too. So PLEASE no FB comments since even the hubs doesn't know yet!

I am super excited! This will more than likely be our last baby and I was hoping that our timing would be late summer, but hey, early summer works too. I think we DTD once 2 weeks ago, I have been busy and therefore tired so I wasn't really expecting this. No pp AF after Hailey either, geez.

Anyway, glad I have some friends on here to share this news with. I'm not sure when I will tell family or (IRL) friends yet. I'll stop typing now because my head is spinning since I found out literally 5 minutes ago.

Once again - Please no FB

Congrats!!!:yahoo:

I'm sorry the job thing didn't work out but I'm glad you guys are relieved about it, especially now with #3 on the way Biggrin

I must admit that I am totally jealous Wink I was hoping to get a bfp today for my bday. But if our history is any indication I should be pg by next month ROFL

Ooh, totally forgot it was your birthday today, I saw it said that on FB yesterday. Happy birthday! Maybe you will be a month after me this time. Sending you lots of baby vibes. You haven't gotten a pp AF either yet right? That would be crazy if you didn't get any between 3 babies! I got one between Kaelan and Hailey.

I think i'm due late March BTW, so unfortunately I doubt we'll make it onto a birth board together. We always manage to stalk each other anyway.

I hope i'm further along than I think otherwise this new babe will have a very close bday to K.

Thanks for the bday wishes. With Isaac and Hailey being a month apart it would be funny if our #3's were also a month apart. I did get ppaf this time, on Isaac's 9 month bday to be exact lol so I'm on my second pp cycle. I'm only 10 dpo, so who knows I *could* still get a bfp, but I'm not holding my breath.

Are you going to do anything cute to tell DH?

I don't know about how to tell DH. I am definitely telling him tonight when he gets home but I guess I could make a card or something. I like doing a special announcement with our families but with DH I tend to want to cut to the chase because I would want him to do the same if he had big news like that. Maybe i'll google around for cute ideas.

Oh and because I'm too lazy to write a new thread, thanks for the reassurance on the BFing. I think making it another 4 months with Hailey would be ideal. I don't think i'm cut out for tandem nursing, especially since I have such a hard time in the first few weeks, but never say never I guess.

OMG!!!!!! Andy! Yay!!!!!!! And Amber, you are TTC for #3? You crazy, crazy girls!

Andy, do you know your due date? We just started TTC #2 last month. I'm in the 2WW right now, maybe we'll end up on the same BB.

OMG!!! Yahoo How exciting!!!! How did DH take the news? We are going to be TTC #2 after AF comes on the 8th. It would be great if we were all due around the same time. I'll add you to the sticky once you get an EDD. Congrats again!

Mandy, good luck! I hate the 2WW, I hope it goes by quickly for you. And we aren't actively trying, we're still NTNP, but I'm still hoping for a bfp.

Well it looks like we have some updating to do to the TTC/sibling thread since so many ladies are TTC now Biggrin

I think (hope) that there are all sorts of new lovebug siblings in 2012.

Lauren - DH was super happy. I told him that night once he got home, but after we put the kids down to bed. We cuddled on the couch and I just told him, nothing fancy. He was surprised that it happened so fast again, but really happy. He was proud of himself too :rolleyes:.

BTW - For those of you who read my blog, today's post is about pregnancy symptoms, but I wrote most of it last week. I almost considered taking it down for now but decided to leave it up since it really has nothing to do with this latest pregnancy.

Congratulations Andrea! That is so exciting!

And Mandy, definately KUP on your 2WW.

I still am totally longing for #3. Not sure it's going to happen though. I need to sit down with Colin and tell him that if he and I are not on the same page, I'm disappointed, but I'll deal. And then tell him he needs to go get snipped. I'm sure that will go over well.

Oh well. What do you do?? Lol.

Andrea, I hope you can get Colin on the same page as you Smile

Andy, are you going to have to get another CVS this time?

Andrea - Maybe talk of the big snip will sway him in the other direction ;). Good luck!

Ambie - Yeah we will be doing a CVS again. It is scary, but I have a lot of faith in the doctor that performs them. He has been doing them a long time and I didn't even have cramping after my last one. It is kind of cool to know gender so early and with 100% accuracy.

CONGRATS!!

AND, you CAN continue to nurse! I nursed Kendall my whole pregnancy with Quentin! I was fine -- just got a little uncomfortable at the end because it would cause contractions. But, Doc said as long as you don't have any complications, a normal pregnancy should be just fine for you to continue nursing. Good luck!
