we are having another BABY!

Say what!?
It's true.
I've got a baby in my belly!
As you can see.
We are so thrilled to be bringing another precious babe into our lives.
My body was certainly onboard too.
My uterus was all, "Yea, no prob. I got this. POW!"
Are you ready for the details!?
In addition to a ton of pictures of myself?
I am 16 weeks pregnant!
24 to go.
Baby will be coming mid December.
This timing is not ideal for our Christmas plans to head to California, however it works out quite nicely since there will be no farming going on.
The boys {mostly Brody} are extremely excited also.
We will see how excited they are once they have to start sharing a bedroom. 
And their mommy. :)
I am excited, and honestly slightly nervous, to join the team of parenting THREE kids.
I hear it's the hardest number of children to have.
And that's where we are stopping.
I guess I just like a good challenge, right?
Ok. Now to the nitty gritty.

stats | baby #3

how far along | 16 weeks

size of baby | avocado! 4 1/2 inches long and about 3 1/2 ounces.Also, did you know that this little baby's heart is pumping about 25 quarts of blood each day!?

weight gain | not sure this will be something that I chronicle throughout the pregnancy, seeing as how I gained a good 40 pounds with each of the boys. I am happy to say though that at my last appointment I had gained a big zero pounds. I do have an appointment today, and based on that bump in the pictures, I am definitely up a couple pounds.

gender | we will most certainly be finding out the gender of this babe at our 20 week ultrasound. Four more weeks! 
I cannot wait to find out.
I've tried the ring test… it has given me both lines and circles.
The wives tales are split down the middle.
And my intuition is crap. 
So, I have no clue.
At this point I'm just hoping for only one gender.

feeling | luckily things started looking up for me a couple of weeks ago. I was super duper nauseous at the beginning… hence the lack of blogging… oops.
I am finally getting my energy back and rarely feel nauseous. 
I definitely still have lots of aversions to food though.

craving | I don't think that I am necessarily craving anything. There are lots of food that I am enjoying though. 
Pizza. Cheesecake. 
Super healthy right!?
Luckily I'm not indulging in these often.
And I really really wanted to buy a huge thing of gelato at Costco, but I had good will power.
I'd like to not gain 40+ pounds this time around.
Since it is like 140 degrees outside lately, fruit and salads sound delicious most of the time.

sleeping | I am on the tail end of being able to sleep on my stomach. Whomp whomp.
This means my sleeping is about to get much much worse.
Beckam has been very generous though in preparing me for less sleep. He sometimes gets out of his bed around 10 times between the hours of 1 and 3 am. He's such a peach.

movement | I think I might have felt the little babe move. Maybe it was gas bubbles. Not sure.
Nothing consistent or hard enough to be sure yet.
In the next few weeks I bet things will start happening.
That is one of my favorite parts of pregnancy!
And since we are planning on this being our last babe, I am going to try and soak it all in.
Stay tuned for more info and news on the baby front!
Like how I told my farmer.
Or our families.

  18. Congratulations! What beautiful, natural photos. As a mother of 8, I did not find 3 more difficult than 2. In fact, other than the noise level of more children, I think mothering a number of little ones is easier than just parenting one---most of the time. You'll do great!
