So, I haven't really been having any symptoms other than peeing a lot and a lot more tired than usual. But today ( 4 weeks, 6days ) I was snacking on some pretzels and out of nowhere I thought they were all coming back up. I didn't even have time to run to the toilet, but it was straight to the garbage can that was within a few feet of me. Of course, my kids were cracking up and my dh just happened to call right at that time and my dd8, took great pleasure in telling him that mama was throwing up.
I usually don't have morning sickness, other than the once or twice random sweep of nausea. They say every pregnancy is different. We'll see....
My kiddos are 13, 9, 8, 6, 3, and 1 and we are so blessed to have each and every one of them!
We have found out the sex for all of the kiddos, but last time around at 30 weeks my husband finally consented for me to change from my midwife who delivers in the hospital, to allowing me to do a home birth ( I had been trying to convince him to allow me to have a home birth for at least the last 3 babies, but he wasn't having anything to do with that). So, now that my dh is totally on board with another home birth, I know that I won't be having an ultrasound unless plans change.
And the day we found out we were pregnant ( 14 dpo ) we told my 13 dd and she came up with the plan to play the telephone game at dinner time, to start with the 9yo and to whispher that mama's having a baby and he would whishper it to the 8yo, until it was whisphered all the way around. So, then of course the 3 yo says it out loud that mama's having a baby and there is no reaction from any of the kids. So, I was like, don't you get it??? And then all of a sudden the faces start lighting up and they're like, you're pregnant? Like for real? Like you're going to have another baby? Oh, it was such pure joy and happiness and so much excitement!!!
Then of course, once we told the kids, the kids told everyone else. However, I still haven't told my mom or my grandmother yet. Not because they won't be happy, but because I need to find a way to tell them both at the same time because they get very competitive of who finds out stuff first. It's very caddy, but I try to keep everybody happy if I can!
